I think the person who started this thread didn't think about the terms that well. I'm a northern boy so im not def. nota redneck, but I know many people who are and don't classify them as "Don't really care" hunters. Also, the whole with shootingyearlings thing I think is way off. Ive shot yearling does before, I call it population control. When you need to get deer out of an overpoplated herd, a yearling doe will do just fine. Plus, that is the deer I usually make steaks out of. Nice and tender. I saw a few does last year with twin button bucks. There is no way I was taking that doe out. It was probably just luck that she had 2 bucks, but you never know. Overall I get what this guy was trying to start a thread about, but his terminology might have been a little off. I hope since most of us are trying to spread our knowlege we are all ethical sportman and for the most part it seems that way.

When I read the first post I was half afraid to read the replies. It could have gotten ugly. I think terminologies differ from region to region. I think a lot of misconceptions are in that first post, but as time goes on hopefully those will clear up.

As for me, I just go out and hunt. I follow the laws, take meat for the freezer & racks for the wall.

There is one type of hunter that I hate to run into. The "Weekend Warrior", the guys who come into the sporting goods store that I work at on Friday afternoon before the shotgun opener to buy a Mossberg 500 and 2 boxes of slugs. Their idea of sighting in their gun is shooting at the first deer that walks by at 70 yards. I run into more of these types of hunters than I care to remember. I am not saying that every hunter who has limited huntingtime is a bad hunter, but I just don't feel safe being in the woods with guys like this. To answer the question though, I am a respectful hunter that sees balance in everything.

A person will be the same kind of hunter as they are a person. You don't climb out of your skin and become something different once you put on camo. You will just reflect who you are in everyday life.

"Let me start by saying I have a little of allof these in me.......and I love the term"redneck hunter" but not in the same way you used it. I love to run and party with my boys, 4 wheel and tear sh*t up, But I love to hunt and not afraid to shoot a smaller deer if it fits the situation,I/we do some management andlove nature. I do follow the laws, but Im also not afraid to do what I want. Im your best friend if you respect my family and my stuff.........."


-that is the same exact approach i take to hunting, but id say the only difference is that i dont tear sh*t up on my 4wheeler haha
