Bingo! The hunting world keeps getting more and more PC and PETA and the antis keep growing in numbers. Why should I try to please them? I won't.

I wouldn't say that they are growing in numbers, at least not significantly. PETA isn't even that relevant. Have you looked at their pamphlets? Its just a bunch of celebrities telling you why you shouldn't eat meat. Pamela Anderson talking about the merits of veganism is hardly going to convert non believers in droves. Beisdes, I personally know former vegans who are now avid hunters \:\)

You may be right poser. I guess I assumed that the numbers were growing because they seem to get more air time. But celebs and their money will always get publicity.

Anti-hunters are a small minority. Non-hunters are the vast majority. If you offend the non-hunters, you end up with more anti-hunters.

You loose and arrow or pull a trigger and if you do it correctly, make no mistake, you kill. Hunting is about killing. It is what we do, it is our purpose for hunting. We may not always hunt just for the kill. It may become secondary at some point. But without killing, there is no hunting.

We do not harvest or bag or reap or sow.

We by God kill! It is time we quit this namby pamby crap and say it as it is.

I too use the term harvest, but not all the time...I think that people know what you mean when you say harvest or kill.

I'm wondering what gives any hunter the right to tell another hunter what terminology to use...

There are lots of terminology out there, in regards to deer....such as buck, doe, spike, button, yearling, nanner head, pig, wallhanger, booner, slick head, pope and young, brute,and so forth.
And as for KILL, here's a few...Dropped the Hammer, Put the smack down on him, dropped one, shot, arrowed, laid one down, etc and so forth, you get my point.

What does it matter what someone calls an animal or the act of taking it's life?

When you pick fruit or vegetables, do you not kill them? Are they not alive at time of harvest? Did they not eat , breathe and grow just prior to you harvesting them? then why not call it killing a field of corn or cotton....?

The point is simply......I have read this exact thread every year, sometimes more than once a year, since I joined here and I still have no understanding as to why people care that a hunter calls it harvesting.....did someone demand that YOU call it harvesting? I'm thinking..NO.

Once again, the overreacting of the masses leads to unnecessary anger and frustration.

I plan to harvest a nice buck this week. Anyone else plan to kill one? See, that wasn't too hard to swallow, now was it??

enjoy
I don't say "harvest" for the same reason I don't use other politically correct terms like "African American". Come on, I didn't harvest my deer, I did nothing to grow them. They made a wrong move and I killed them. As for the other terminology such as smack down, dirt nap etc I think that's mostly born from hunting shows which usually don't portray hunting very well. If you see me use some stupid term like that its probably because of bowriters post earlier this season and I like to joke around.

You probably won't hear me telling people what terminology to use and not use, but that doesn't mean certain terms like "harvest a deer" aren't politically correct and actually incorrect.

It sounds like in general you are leaning on the side of political correctness which I really don't understand why.


Not hardly....I just find it hard to understand why you or anyone else cares what someone calls it, killing, harvesting or whatever.....It amazes me that people care so much what others think....

As far as being politically correct in reference to African Americans......well, I do not care what a black man wants to be called. After all, they are only words and if I can make someone a bit less angry by calling him or her what he or she wishes to be called, then so be it...

To do otherwise is simply poking the nest of a hornet that probably has a pretty good reason to be angry in the first place...

Why look for trouble?????

But, I guess a man's gotta do what makes him happy...

I think I'll go take the life of a deer in the morning...who's with me???

Back when I was in knee paints it was called hunting. We didn't even harvest our crops we gathered or picked them. We hunted and killed what we hunted. We killed our livestock. People weren't week kneed back then and there would not even be a discussion like this. It was called like it is.

Not me. I'm going to go to my area of outdoor recreation and find an animal to bring home. I better not say hunting club, hunting, or killing. Don't want to offend some city slicker PETA type.

This is amazing......seriously, it is.

Why are ya'll worried about what someone says or that someone calls killing, harvesting?? it's a word.

These are words used to describe an activity, nothing more.

Why are you all so dead set to make this some sort of battle between hunters and non-hunters? Even so much as to pit hunter against hunter based on what they call a particular activity like killing or harvesting..?

I swear, I believe some people get up in the morning desperately searching for some "cause" to fight for or some one to fight against....

Go kill a deer and stop worrying about what someone else calls it....what's next......?

Does the term Harvest Moon make anyone mad? lol

Please......chill, it will be okay.
