The time has come to take the fight to the antis.
It happens with more frequency now. A hunter, most often a woman, is “shamed,” harassed, and sometimes threatened on social media in what in any other circumstance would be considered a terrorist act. An ensuing tsunami of haters pile on for a while until their bile-laden attention is diverted to another righteous “cause.” Because of a legal hunt in Africa, a member of one of America’s foremost families of conservation, Brittany Hosmer Longoria, was put through the grinder of the progressive hate machine, and as usual, the basis of the attacks defy logic on several levels.
Hunters try, and some of us have been trying for decades, to use logic to convince the antis that what we do is of benefit to both Man and beast. The benefits of sustainable use conservation in a 7.5B person world is settled science, which is logical to those who are open to new ideas, but therein lies the rub. The majority of anti-hunters have no interest in science, logic, or even the well-being of animal species. Most anti-hunters want to stop hunting because they do not like hunting, and animals be damned.
