Hunting is on the decline in the U.S. I don't think that this is good for her image or popularity ratings.

When was the last time we had anyone famous use a gun, and not have any bleeding hearts crucify them for it?

All she has to make sure of is if it's a Buck.

I believe John Kerry had a similar photo-op at the end of his presidential campaign. He shot and killed some birds. I didn't like that either. (And I'm not a "bleeding heart".)

Who cares? Most of Americans aren't vegetarians. And if you're not a vegetarian and have a problem with someone else hunting, you're a hypocrite.

Can you provide proof that hunting is on the decline? Links please. I suspect as so often the case that your premise is once again false. Hunting is alive and well between the left coasts.

Women in Hunting on the Rise! (http://ezinearticles.com/?Women-in-Hunting-on-the-Rise!&id=1105291 - broken link)

50 PERCENT GROWTH OF YOUNG FEMALE HUNTERS...
The National Hunting Survey of Hunting, Fishing and Wildlife Associated Recreation, released by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, shows growth in female hunter participation since 1991 and reveals a boom in the number of girls 6-15 who hunt. The survey shows a 50 percent increase from 2001-2006 over a similar five-year period from 1991-1996, reports USA Today.

Hunting, Long in Decline, Is Back on the Rise - Local News | News Articles | National News | US News - FOXNews.com (from 2008)

It's been a year for house hunting, job hunting, bargain hunting ... and real hunting — the kind that requires a gun or a bow and lots of open land.
National and annual statistics have yet to be tallied, but hunters across the country are in agreement: Hunting is making a comeback. More people are grabbing their guns and heading for the woods, and it's mostly because of the recession.

440 of your City-Data Forum posts contain the word "Palin." And there are untold others who are at least as obsessed if not more so than you are.

She has accomplished exactly what she wants thanks to the likes of you.
