From our own ranks that is.

Take the time to read through the comments if you care to remain current on what the “anti hunting hunters” are raging about.

Seems it has now evolved WAY passed hatred for high fences. It’s now open season on food plots and all forms of “baiting”.

Just another version of "If you don't hunt the way I hunt for the reasons I hunt, you're doing it wrong" and "My respect for the animals I kill is better than your respect for the animals you kill."

I couldn't have summarized this more elegantly. At the end of the day, as long as you stay legal, you should have the right to hunt the way that you choose.

Kendall Jones is an idiot.

I think that poachers, & dumb redneck "hunters" (to use that term very liberally) do more to turn off non hunting people than HF ever did. Shooting or chasing deer on their neighbors place, tearing up roads, throwing out trash & beer cans, dumping carcasses on county/public roads, trashing up highway parks with lease trash & empty corn sacks; people see that every week, at least during season (& some out of season).

Yep. The surprising thing to me was the level of and quantity of hate for food plots. Most of our "anti your way of hunting" on the thf don't consider food plots as the death of hunting as we know it...

Also, I was amused at the hatred for high fenced and baiting she fomented with her post, while she is high fenced and baits... poor little girl doesn't understand denigrating one methods draws denigration for many of her chosen methods.

Some of those bucks are insane. Its a bit different than enclosing them, feeding them and allowing them to mature.

But if someone wants to raise livestock and then kill them or allow someone else to kill them for a fee, why should I care?

The buck in the pic isn’t what piqued my interest. The market for deer like that is shrinking and I’ve never been interested in those either.

What interests me is the amount of baiting, food plot hate that was spewed in the comments.

It shouldn’t be a surprise.

Seen it for years. I watched a dude get destroyed because he hunted public land New Zealand and took a helicopter in and out.

Same Ol same Ol hunters destroying hunters. Guided vs DIY, public vs private, spot and talk vs tree stand, water hole vs feed, OTC tag vs LO or high point tag.

It’s a justification system of why thier accomplishments are better then someone else’s.

There’s another thread going about hunters trying to tell another hunter on neighboring property how to set up their deer stands now...

Another example of “if it isn’t done the way I think it should be done, you are wrong”

Is this a tactic from the liberal playbook to get everyone disagreeing or in conflict with each other? Or is it a method the devil plays on all our minds to get us in conflict? Either way it sucks. If it is legal, why worry about it? Who cares if it isn’t your cup of tea, it might be someone else’s....

As long as there are enough hunters out there who aren't just feeder watching and sharing their hunting knowledge with the next generation, I'm happy.

If it's legal, to each there own.

Too many hunters want to get up on their soap box and hear themselves lecture about their way or the highway........and at the end of the day what have they accomplished?

Nothing other than pissing other hunters off!

Dividing hunters instead of uniting them!

Offer just one single season to everyone and you might be surprised at how much division disappears in the hunting community.

You can hunt those seasons if you want to so you have nothing to complain about.

So if I hunt the way you hunt when you hunt, all is good.

You just proved how the division got started.

Caveat: I don't "do" facebook, so unable to see more than the log in page entry, so just getting the "drift" from what you fellas have posted. Not sure I'd use facebook as a National 'bellwether" tho.

It has to be all about harvesting a resource using legal methods? Because I'd bet most reply'ers, use bird feeders, plant "stuff" that draws birds, butterflies and bees. What about "people" food plots and the many foods that come from other country's that may not produce fruits and veggies using safe methods (herbicides/pesticides)?

The list of arguments BOBO posted above I understand, but if it is legal, those arguments become differing opinions among outdoorsmen.

Take hunting out of the equation and IMO, they disagree about LO rights, the right to do on and with your property as you see prudent with in legal lines, but even then, you get arguments based on opinion.

I admit my thoughts may be different if I had a facebook acct and could force myself to read through it.

Again, is this divisiveness the product of living for several decades with the liberal agenda being shoved down our throats and thus adopting some of it to ourselves, or is the divisiveness a product of the ultimate deceiver, the ultimate evil one who is preying on our human nature and creating these rifts for the purpose of chaos and anger?

And then the question begets, does it matter (we know the final outcome) and are they both one in the same (just under a different name).... confused2

IMO, it's both. Liberals cry "not fair!" if anything exists that they want but cannot obtain through their own means and efforts. If it's not something they can have then none of us should have it.

The other influence you mention thrives and builds strength from hate, jealousy and coveting what others have.......social media is the perfect platform for this influence of evil.

Agree with Pitchfork and will add.
Some people live for division, it's easier than compromise, or working for a solution. I don't mean folks that just have a different opinion. Some people are wired that way for whatever reason and need everyone else bickering or as miserable as they see things from their porch.
You can have "division" within a group of 50 guys all at a car lot helping one pick a vehicle, but I'd call those heated opinions grin
