Hunter bashing

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

sorry about your experiences....i have several vegan friends and relatives and its always interesting when there is a family gathering,i.e. thanksgiving-it isnt my fault they choose to browse and not stand up and claim thier rightful place at the top of the food chain!!!
i generally try to ignore them-no matter how inane thier point of view is it doesnt matter cuz thats all they hear-thier point of view-even when we are right.
stand tall and dont let em discourage you or theyll think of as a win and gain more momentum.

I know some people who are vegans and also strongly dislike hunting and fishing. I just try and avoid those topics around them and don't take any of their comments personally.

In the last five years my wife and I can proudly say that we have actually taken two people that di not shoot or hunt and were kind of GREEN and completely turned them to the 'dark side'. Yes

They are both women and they both not only hunt and shoot now, I actually have one of them trapping beaver. Gotta love it!
