8 Reasons Anti-Hunters Hate You

8 Reasons Anti-Hunters Hate You

It's a them-against-us world out there, with the tone of today's political and social discourse often falling down the lines of an, "If you're not for us, you're against us," mentality. For sure, hunting has fallen victim to that mentality from those who surely know what is best for the rest of us, if we would only recognize their unalienable wisdom.

Homegrown like ideological terrorists — if terrorism entailed attacking a lifestyle with ignorance and snobbery simply because you didn't like to do it — in our nation's cities and suburbs, the physical and mental distance between country and cultural center only fan the flames of persistent discord. But sometimes you have to wonder, why all the hating? In the immortal words of Rodney King, "Can we all just get along?"


Well, we think we've figured out exactly why anti-hunters are from Venus and the rest of us are, well, from Earth. Following are eight of the top reasons anti-hunters can't stand you.
