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.

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.

Agreed....what does it matter which word one wants to use. Kill, harvest, take, it all has the same end result.....death. We are on top of the food chain just the way God intended! Get over it!

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.

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.


Exactly. I could care less about the anti-hunters. What I'm concerned about is the opinion of non-hunters. Many non-hunters support hunting from both a traditional sense as well as a biological necessity. Those are the people I don't go out of my way to offend and turn into anti-hunters. It isn't about being "politically correct," it is about not rubbing blood and gore in their faces.

If I go hunting in a open fence free range situation getting meat for my freezer and family I'm going to kill a deer. Buck or Doe whatever is 3.5 years old and big enough to justify paying the butcher.
If I go on a pay hunt where the deer are fenced in. If the cost of the hunt is decided by what you shoot the bigger it is the more it costs .It is still killing but you are harvesting something that someone has raised.You raise and harvest crops and only pick the biggest and best to sell. The not so pretty or big crops are culls for friends and family to eat.JMO It really makes no difference to me what someone else calls what they bring home from the field. My guess is most people use the term they were brought up using within thier family and circle of friends.
If you kill a cow or hog you do take it to the slaughter house not the harvest house.
Most guys on Tn deer kill or harvest a few deer.
There are a few that stand out from the rest that do go out and slaughter them and bring them home to finish the slaughtering \:\)
After the slaughtering the eating or devouring starts \:\)

I guess I think differently. I don't give a crap what others are doing. I'm not offended by what other people do either. I don't encourage people to break laws or anything, but it's high time people mind their own business. And quit acting offended by what somebody else may enjoy doing.
