April 2003 Poll:
The definition of a slob hunter seems to vary widely. Most would agree that poaching is the act of a slob, but poaching is also criminal.
Some take the definition of "slob hunter" far beyond poaching in an attempt to protect the sensitivities of the non and anti hunting crowd. For instance some consider the following acts to be adverse to our collective hunting reputation:
- An unclean hunt camp
- Poor shooting
- Open carcass display
- Improper disposal of a gut pile
- Improper use of 4x4's or ATV's
- Wearing blood stained clothes in a public place
In short, the definition of slob seems to be moving toward any act short of legally taking your game without notice and without leaving a trace that the game was taken. The more discrete the better, the thinking seems to go. Is this going to far? How do you define slob?
