Have we lost our way as hunters in today's society? Here what The Buck Advisors' Jeremy Flinn discuss why he hunts, and what he has changed in the last two decades.

Visit any hunting forum or deer hunting related social media post, and you will find what I am talking about. Since when did we become such a criticizing group? It's amazing how many ways your deer can be too small, too "fenced," or even too unethically harvested. So you never made a bad shot, good for you. I have, and I have lost deer. But I have also lost many hours of sleep over those deer.
As I get a little older and a little wiser, I feel like the success of hunts measured in inches of antler, number of deer seen, or deer shot were done in a way that a took my hunts for granted. I should have taken those hunts for the time spent with friends and family, the experiences in nature, and the freedom to hunt such amazing landscapes.
Now we face a tougher situation. Other hunters making us feel like we have done wrong. There is no picture safe of social media, whether young or old, buck or doe, and gun or bow you will have a negative comment. It's sickening. Out of all the stuff hunters can do to each other (trespassing, stealing cameras) this ranks just as high in my book. It's a public display of disrespect to the hunter, and the harvest. It needs to stop.
I know my hunts will be looked at differently, and I will support any hunter who legally harvests game, and truly appreciates the experience and the bounty.
Jeremy Flinn is also the Chief Marketing Officer for Stone Road Media, enhancing the digital marketing for hunting, fishing, shooting & tactical.

Pretty spot on. And the reason why even if I do get lucky enough to take a deer this season the picture won't be posted on the internet, I don't care what others think. I hunt, I enjoy it and I don't care for opinions.

The bottom line is if you are sensitive to the opinions of others about what you are doing (hunting or anything else), then social media is not the place to be sharing it.

I am amazed at the folks who go on the various forms of social media seeking opinions about things - and then get upset when they receive them.

All most people on social media really want is back pats and validation. Or a fuss. One of the two.

I hunt for my pleasure not anyone else's, when and if I harvest an animal it is to my pleasure from rabbits to elk, it's my business. If I do post anywhere it would be for my benefit. I never posted a picture of a harvest pig, yote, deer, ducks etc. because anybody would or could criticize my actions not my pleasure. I'm not talking about a killing machine, I've let a lot of animals walk. Got more enjoyment just watching.

I hunt to share what i can remember with my kids and to spend some time doing the I fish because I love it and love to eat them what I dont like is a guy in a 50,000$ bass boat and 10 rods strain about it get mad at me for taking a league limit of bass then he made the mistake of getting in my boat to through them back in the lake no o good choice for any one do do it need badly for him I dont think he was expecting the outcome to be what it was then he called the cops and was even more shocked that the fps roled up it was an army hunting and fishing compound on i cant recall the lake it had 3 names it spit the border from South corolina and Georga he was arrested for assault trespassing and breaking and entering and the illegal passion of a game fish he did not catch it in the mouth with a rod and reall I am sure there were others but is recall then me i factored y had and to bones in my foot when i kicked back lag round house kick in in the face messed up is wrist wilt this was login on i told youngest to go in the trick i ask my oldest if he felt comfortable in taking him kid is skinny but he can fight his grandfather was a many thai trainer and they teach in in school at pe. he was rambling about being on the lake or 2 days and not getting thing i seen him fishing i told him to slow down and fish the area not just blaze through and i dont even bass fish i goes in 2 days he did not catch a single and because guys lie me who are legally can keep 5 from 12-14ins i did we eat them 2 i have a family to feed i dont sport fishing I fish because i love it and then i get

she could cook my this moment if it were i got lucky i think any how it was not the first time bass fisherman have gotten mad at me for eating the beloved [censored] fish or what i like to call Blue cat food but for some reason the have a fit if you keep them if the stated did not want the to be harvested they they would say so and you could not keep them but there is a daily bag limit and size lime i dont care what it is as long as it is legal to eat and be taken I have no issue with a man feeding his family weather he this statement my not be popular even if it was pooched as long as all of it is use and not just the back traps to one rear rumps if you are needy enough to take it illegally use it i wont say a work but if your killing just to kill and not use pisses me off when i lived with my mom were were beyond poor way bond my step dad could not keep a well paying job do to drinking so many time me and my sister wee starving be cause he drank up all the money so i would go out back and take a deer at 11yr old grouse habits if you could eat it i would kill it or i would fish the spawning grounds for salaam and steal head and take a few me and my 2 sisters on old on younger but people dont realized some of use hunt to heat is in our nature we dint away have grocery stores we hunted and gather but every thing so PC it makes me sick I have a retired army buddy were where

Great post but I still question why those of common interest would put down others on a forum. If I go to an mp forum to talk about glocks, I get what I deserve. But when I am on a hunting forum, I enjoy reading and seeing what others are doing. Don't judge because it's great to share the joy of a good hint, regardless of the turn out. This is one reason I like this forum. I am new here but I have seen a lot of positivity and that's what this sport needs

Good write up, but the internet is a place where if you cant stand the heat, dont walk in the kitchen. right or wrong it is what it is. Common sense tells ya all this.
