More liberals are shooting their own supper

I think the evolution of the new lefty urban hunter goes something like this:

2006: Reads Michael Pollan’s The Omnivore’s Dilemma, about the ickyness of the industrial food complex. Starts shopping at a farmer’s market.
2008: Puts in own vegetable garden. Tries to go vegetarian but falls off the wagon.
2009: Decides to only eat “happy meat” that has been treated humanely.
2010: Gets a chicken coop and a flock of chickens.
2011: Dabbles in backyard butchery of chickens. Reads that Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg decided to only eat meat he killed himself for a year.
2012: Gets a hunting permit, thinking “how hard can it be? I already totally dominate Big Buck Hunter at the bar.”

Hunting is undeniably in vogue among the bearded, bicycle-riding, locavore set. The new trend might even be partly behind a recent 9 percent increase from 2006 to 2011 in the number of hunters in the United States after years of decline. Many of these new hunters are taking up the activity for ethical and environmental reasons.

    Now we, conservative hunters, are being educated by liberal “hipster” hunters about ethical hunting. These are the same eco-pricks that we have had to fight year in and year out to protect hunting rights and hunting on public lands (that are for the most part procured through Sportsman dollars). We’re insulted with a statement that we, conservative hunters, only hunt for trophies but these new liberal “hipsters” are doing it to be one with nature and for subsistence. This author, Emma M, is as clueless as the rest of these socialist morons, who for years have call hunters every negative name in the book, and sat at home and b*tched about the squirrels in their bird feeders, or the deer eating their hostas. These are the same idiots who protest and try to disrupt hunters to “save the animals”, or complain about wrecking their car when they hit a deer. Conservative hunters are responsible for this country’s abundant game, through conservation, land procurement, and management practices through billions spent on licenses. You liberal “hipsters” just stay out of my sights when you are bumbling around in the woods looking for a hamburger.

    Liberals don’t deserve a spot here whatsoever, hypocrisy and rampant at that.

  • PWR

    On a positive note, Many of these Lib.’s just might figure out enough about life and the world and how it really works to convert to Conservatives! I think the main reason we have so many of the dang things (liberals) now is that fact that they have missed out on a part of living that teaches you respect, love of Country and how the world really works! I just hope too many of them aren’t running around in the woods blasting everything that moves!! I think I’ll only hunt my land this year!!
