I ask if they're vegetarian. When they say no, I smile and I say, oh so you prefer to hire a hitman to do your killing. 99% of the time they're laughing at this point. And I say look I hire a hitman too for most of my meat but I like to do some of the killing myself. And then I explain that I don't take every shot opportunity that I have, that I pass on most shot opportunities and that mostly I just love being out there.....

Now admittedly I've some good people skills but I've found that if you share just a bit of your passion for "being out there" with most folks they'll leave that discussion, with just a bit more respect for you and maybe, just maybe, a softer view than the advesarial tone that they started with.

We should not shrink from these types of challenges but view them as opportunities to educate and to do our part in improving the perceptions and allaying misconceptions regarding our sport.

This stewardship assuredly rests with us.

I would say that I have never shot a cartoon and I'm not even sure what the season or bag limits are on them.

Good answers, each and every one of them.

I especially liked arrowslinger's and Buckfevr's!

Like someone said around here before...I don't kill bambi, I kill his deadbeat dad or his crackho mama. <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

I like this post......
I usually ask if they know where there sore bought meat comes from. Then I describe a feed lot to them....then ask who had it better, the deer or the cow.

I say well, 1st I climb a tree and sit in my stand untill he comes by and I put my sight pin on his vitals, Release, and watch my arrow pass threw. I then explain how they'll run 50 or so yards and fall down. If they say &quot;that's not what I mean&quot; (and they always do) I say oh, well then I take my 454 casull pistol out and ....
The key is doing all of this with a prefectly straight face. Jim

I have to say to TODD in NY I know what your going through. I lived in long island new york up until about ten years ago. I did not hunt then. Since living here outside of Allentown Pa. I cant tell you how many people who have lived here all there lives have never hunted and I hear what you do all the time. I see Deer (roadkill)on the side of the road more often then not and I ask those that dont hunt is that what you would rather see. Like Bowhunter above thats my line also I didnt kill Bambi I harvested his Great Grandson. That get some people madder then all heck. Living in New York and growing up there I may have said the same thing But since moving here I enjoy hunting more then almost anything. As one person says Hunting is a God given right.
And only one more thing dont I remember werent it the pilgrims who put a turkey on the table on thanksgiving and you dont hear anyone saying there not eating turkey in November. Some of those bambi lovers forget to realize that they may be a decendant of those good old folks.
