I had this posted on the politics board, thought I might try this topic here.
Hello, I would like to introduce myself as this is my first post here. I'm Ken Blaze and live in western NY. I've been hunting white tails for about 33 years now. I hunt mainly for the purpose of providing for my family and friends. I'm not that interested in the trophy aspect of the sport.
I would like a little input on how some of you handle the hunter bashing that I seem to be running into of late.
For example: I had to leave the woods early this season because of a medical problem. At the emergency room the attending MD stated the my affliction was probably due to the fact that I was a HUNTER, (that was my punishment she said) I had a large kidney stone! She made it perfectly clear that she was fully against our sport. Then in another forum that I am a member of, some moron starts on the televised hunting and the cruel treatment of game. I waited as long as I could stand it before I responded. Of coarse the expected response to my reply was extended to me.
Just curious as to how some of you handle those situations.
If you would like the link to the post I mentioned I will gladly reply.
Thanks for listening..........KEN
