The Internet, take the good with the bad.
I recently read a few articles on a 11 year old Michigan hunter who took a albino deer with a crossbow while on a hunt with his father. Like a lot proud hunters do, they took some pictures and posted them online to share with all there hunting friends. So far so good, all is legal.
The internet has erupted with bullying, name calling and death threats to the boy and his family. Yes that's right, death threats. I know its a albino deer. I get it it. In the state of Michigan these deer are legal to take just like a normal deer.
I read the article when I saw the headline and the picture because I was interested by the article. If the headline offended you or you hate deer hunting, why read it? There are things out there that other people do that I do not agree with. If they are within there legal right, and they want to do it, that is there right. If I feel what ever they do is not right, attacking them and sending death threats to them is not going to fix it. If I feel that strongly about what they are doing is wrong and should be made illegal, than there are channels to take to do so.
I have hunting buddies who would take the deer no problem, others who may pass on the shot. What ever there reason may be, none of them would send a 11 year old boy a death threat because he made the decision to take the deer.
If someone is being unethical or running the grey line of right and wrong, call them out on it. Quit being cowards and hiding behind a keyboard, thinking your way of life is the only way. I don't bully you because of your choices, and if you were hungry I would offer you some of the food I have in my freezer. If you cannot be the same person in everyday life that you are when you are sitting at your computer, than maybe you should be mad at yourself not everyone else.
I could go on a very long time and go off in so many different directions of my own opinion on so many different ways. But when it comes down to it, it my opinion, its all mine, its allowed, just like you can have your own opinion. If you want to openly debate difference's of opinion, that is allowed to. But you want to make death threats, that my friend is a whole new ball game. That tells me you may not be smart enough to talk about the subject or you have no real facts to support your own opinion.
Now back to the good stuff, deer season opened October 1st in Indiana, who is having a good season? lets see some pics of the hunt!
