I once got three rabbits with one bullet. Very tricky to line that shot up.

I will be honest. When I hear or see about someone that is in the 90+ age category, I tend to have the default image of them being in a nursing home or retirement home. That said, being over 100 and still hunting is astounding. Now, if we could here a story about a guy trying to rob her but she gives him a good beating. You know, a guy tries to rob her at gun-point, but she does a literal butt-kicking.

Typically when a hunter gets two deer with one shot it's a mistake. The bullet passed through the intended target and hit an unintended target...the 2nd deer. It's still a good shot, especially for a 101-year-old! I hope I'm that physically active and sharp at 80 let alone 101. Respect.

But I have to say, this picture is disturbing. It's disturbing to take photos of dead animals with their bloody tongues hanging out, as if we are insensitive conquerers. It's disturbing to take pictures of stringers of fish, as conquerers. I see it, and see it, and see it. Bloody animals, bloody fish on stringers, with smiling people, giggling people.

I get it. We're carnivores, as I am. I'm just disturbed to see dead animals and fish on stringers and smiling joyful proud conquerers.

IMHO, this will be the next generation's WHAT??? issue. Just as those of this generation can't understand slavery, and can't understand different water fountains and restrooms for blacks vs whites, and can't understand hating or killing gays, and wonder why in the world Germany turned their backs on Jews, I think the next generation won't understand giggling and bragging, and taking pictures with dead animals bloody and their tongues sticking out.

It just seems we need to be more respectful of the dead animals we've killed to eat. Enough giggling and bragging, and ignoring their painful deaths.
I agree with all that you have written. I am more concerned with the new trend of photographing the dead or dying animal than I am with the practice of hunting or fishing.
I don't eat meat, but I occasionally eat fish. Even though I do, I am very disturbed by photographs of gleeful, smiling, happy people, showing off their kill. If you are hunting for food, why gloat about the death of the animal or fish? Why take a picture at all? When I see these pictures, the indifference to life, and the gloating superiority of the hunter are really repulsive.

How well would the hunter or fisherman have done with out the expensive technology of their rod or gun?

Native Americans teach their children to respect the animal that they have killed. I agree with this. If populations of people - Native Americans, for example, need to hunt for food, it should be thought of as a necessary evil. It's killing after all. I feel quite sure that had cameras been available when native Americans needed to hunt, that posing with a lifeless corps of a bloodied bison, would NOT have been thought of as respectful.

In the late 1900s and early 20th Century, lynchings were still a part of the American scene. I have unfortunately seen pictures of Grinning men standing beside horribly mutilated, burned, and castrated bodies of men who were victims of their cruel "justice".

And there it is. That same gloating, Cheshire Cat grin, of indifference, superiority and sadism.

I find it repulsive.

Does this attitude legitimately exist?
I'm not even sure you people are on the correct planet.

People have been taking pictures of thier hunt since we scratched images on cave walls.

Hunting and killing animals when you have no other way if feeding yourself is fine. Doing it for sport whether not you eat the game is another.



Most humans are not out of necessity hunters and gatherers any longer.

Vegans can be so tiresome.



That's an amazing old lady. Sometimes I wonder if we don't get old until we sit down and allow ourselves to become old. She is up and working and looks like she is good for several more hunting seasons.
