We will post hunting pictures if we [censored] want to, and that is our right. Anti hunters are going [censored] crazy on social media lately with anyone who posts hunting pictures. Aside from blatant harassment and slander, they are invading privacy, making false reports of professional misconduct to their employers, and verbally attacking them at their homes and jobs. The latest social media "victim" is Sabrina Corgatelli, a woman who just posted pictures from her hunt in South Africa.

It is not ok for ignorant people to vilify someone and destroy their professional marketability simply because that person posted hunting pictures on social media. And I do emphasize "IGNORANT" because the vast majority of these people are completely unaware of how legal hunting is responsible for the majority of conservation. The proceeds from licenses and firearms/ammunition taxes go toward conservation. Coupled with the hunting organizations that donate money for habitat and wildlife, and lobby for wildlife protection, hunting is the single largest financial contributor to wildlife preservation. And hunting reserves in places like Africa provide one of the only economically functional ways to pay for management of vast areas of land (including fighting poachers).

This is the information people need to understand. And if we are to avoid the social consequences that these misinformed people are trying to impose on us, then we need to meet them head on. We need to be as outspoken about these facts as they are about their intolerable criticism of hunting. So post about it on social media. Debate with them with facts in an un-antagonistic way if you see someone else posting anti hunting stupidity. The following links are great resources for factual information regarding the important and positive effects from hunting for conservation. They would be great to use on facebook, twitter, and whatever else.

And if one of these idiots harasses you, please file a suite against them.

Clearly you all fail to realize the magnitude of this activity. This is precisely what is going to lead to oppression of hunting and loss of rights. Just between last week and today, it has already resulted in several policy changes in various companies which deny service to hunters, and international game transportation restrictions. Wake up!

I think this was an excellent post and great information to have at hand. You should keep marking this post TTT everyday. Just because no responded doesn't mean they don't understand or care.

I do agree that is our right to post pictures but need to choose pictures that are respectful to animals so we don't have to ruffle feathers more and just to have class. Staying united behind organizations that support hunting and conservation is crucial to the preservation of the sport and the conservation of our wildlife.

I get upset seeing bickering amongst fellow hunters here on THF because when it comes down to it we are all pretty dang similar and have a common bond.

Don't let the anti-hunting propaganda get to you though there is still a lot of support. Just teach as many uneducated folks as you can.

Since 2002, I can only recall two times that I have ever had someone try to harass me that was against our hunting business and beliefs.

I agree with MoBettaHunt statement about posting pictures and supporting hunting and conservation organizations. I try to take a clean picture as I can because that's what I enjoy as a hunter. I have placed pictures on my desk at work here at the hospital(while I do my internship) and there are some that don't admire hunting but have told me they would rather see my clean pictures than ones that are bloody. Well, so would I and that's why I put them in a frame on my desk. It's no different at home. I don't keep my taxidermy mounts with blood and guts on them or make them look like they do. So why should my pictures be any different? The pictures to me are more important to me than the mounts I have done so I take more pride in the pictures I take today.

Well you have to remember who you are dealing with on THF...you know we the "illogical"...the. "ridiculous"... those who cannot see the "completely obvious" kinda of folks here in Texas. Remember we are all not doctors so we are not qualified to see the logical and obvious at times. Some of us are just sheep grazing and need time to understand true hard facts. We are slow to respond with logical thoughts since we just don't understand at times.....

Completely agree about respecting the animal.
Still...I've always wanted that baboon on the toilet smoking a cigarette for my guest bathroom. Throw a party and leave the door unlocked.

Of course we "fail to realize the magnitude of this activity". Why, I'm just an ignunt old bumkin, I don't know nuthin bout birthin no pictures... It'd probably take a Dr or something to know the rammifications of posting pics and not standing together as a united front against the growing hordes of anti-hunters. Sure glad we have you here to divine these technical issues for us.

You deserved that BTW. Mr, "I'm a Dr. so they should "kill all the deer in Medina Co and every deer on every ranch that went to or left that ranch, and anyone who disagrees is ignorant".

Personally, I like it when corporations make knee jerk decisions like Delta did. It helps me determine where I spend my dollars.

And Delta and AA had the best package I could find for that bear trip in BC. I didn't purchase the tickets yet. I will have to route it differently now.

Yep. I think we ended up flying United.

I'm going to write a nice letter to Delta and AA today.

Always do my best to take clean pictures, because like someone above stated that's how I want them to look. Chances are pictures of me on social media are of me holding something I just shot or caught.

I like to lay with them naked in my pictures. The whole nature in the wild thing with a knife in my teeth. that usually keeps the antis at bay.

United is doing the same thing.

I think the airlines got a call from one of Der Fuhrer's minions in Washington.

American Airlines, Delta, and United all refuse to transport hunting trophies now.
