Hunter Hatred

I don’t get it. I really don’t even understand it. Seems like these kind of people are the kind that have to find something to get angry about, and if they can’t do that then they get angry about not having anything to be angry about.

Personally, I cannot wait to be in a position like Dustin and be hunting with my children. Spent some time in the deer blind with my seven year old recently. Didn’t shoot, see, or hear any deer. But the experience was still wonderful.

In the past few years we have grown to see much more hatred towards hunting. It’s gotten so bad and violent that just a simple photo of a deer harvest will attract death threats towards children and families.
I was probably more proud of my 16-year-old daughter’s first buck harvest than she was. Of course I had put most of the effort into the hunt with months of preparation, scouting, blind maintenance and the like. It was a great moment I don’t have to tell other hunters how time spent hunting builds a special bond between you and your children.

And like every other proud dad I posted a photo of her latest harvest to social media. Granted I have a bit larger platform than most hunters since my photo reached over 109,000 people with 4,000+ likes and 150 shares. But that’s when the haters arrived.

Reasons to Teach Your Kids Archery

If you’re a parent, placing a legit weapon in your child’s hands might not seem like such a good idea. But what if i told you that archery if taught properly, can have amazing benefits for your child? Not only is it infinitely cool, but it can also teach your kid so many values and life lessons.

Think about how concentrated one must be to make a successful archery shot. The amount of discipline and self-control needed is exceptional. A child would make thousands of bad shots before hitting the bullseye.

Think about all of the benefits of that: Your kid will learn to hold their emotions when they miss, and instead focus on the next shot, improving their overall mental toughness. If you really think about it, archery actually promotes safety, as a kid would learn what is dangerous, and how to responsibly use dangerous things.
These and several other reasons have been summarized by guys at A Straight Arrow in this infographic:
