Recently, a picture was posted to Facebook of a young hunter with a small black bear (a 3 year old). The bear was wet, which made it look even smaller...what happens? The keyboard commandos come out of the woodwork.
"We're reporting you to fish and game"
"What? You think you're tough for shooting a cub" (to a 10 year old hunter)
"I'm all for hunting, but dang."
And the list goes on
Why must we, as hunters, degrade, put down, turn our noses up, get on our 'holier than though' pedestal, etc. to other hunters? If other hunters are touting themselves as being ethical hunters while engaging in illegal activities, that's one thing, but if you see folks hunting as a family, following all fair chase and ADF&G regulations, PLEASE push the keyboard back and think before you vomit all over the internet with ill-informed postings.
Our way of life up here as hunters already gets enough flack from outside interest groups let alone us putting each other down and picking each other apart. We see it EVERYWHERE and it gets old...really old..
