some people just kinda make me frustrated or something...I mean on another website there was this guy and he had this bloody pic of a lil' cull buck he had shot.....the buck was lying on a concrete slab and there was blood everywhere, with the entry hole facing up....I mean I'm a hunter and so are ya'll but I'm sure some people really didn't want to see that, I personaly don't really mind but at the same time I think it gives us hunters/sportsmen and women a bad name, I mean I understand if there is an entry hole in the pic but you ain't gotta lay the buck with a giant entry hole facing up and have blood spewing out all over the place. I just took my hunter's education class and one thing that the instructors infasized (sp?) was have respect for the game you are taking and try to "clean the animal up" as much as you can before taking pics...IDK why I am really posting this on here but I guess...well shoot, IDK - that's just how I feel

EDT you got it right! Every sportsperson has a responsibility to represent themselves and the sport in the best most favorable respect. Anything less is unacceptable and not welcomed im my hunting camp. We cover all animals if transporting them whole, to not offend anyone in the general public.

ETD you are Absolutely right with how you're feeling and because you are a genuine Huntress and all of us veteran hunters & huntresses are very proud of you,
It's normal to have those feelings for idiots that do those sort of things.
Oh believe me I'm much worse than you are when it comes to these sort of issues.
You have been taught very well and I can tell from your postings you are a perfect example of how a youth hunter should conduct themselves in the field of hunting.
As a huntress, with the knowledge and respect you have for hunting don't ever be afraid to speak your mind to let them fools know whats what.
If someone tries to post a distasteful pic like that here you can bet i'll pull it off immediately and let them know why i'm pulling it and then I'll tell them if they can't post a picture that's more fitting for public viewing then don't post any at all.

One last thing ETD, you've been hearing how rage broadheads (I call them "badheads") make massive entry and exit holes supposedly for better blood trails...
Well like you, I don't want to see pics of them holes online it seems like their way of bragging about the damage they've done to the animal and to me bragging is not very ethical at all.
But don't let them idiots get under your skin, sadly you're going to have many years of dealing with those types. :thumbup:

P.S. Has your grandfather invited you to hunt his place yet? :whistling:

Ok...so I commented on his pic of the bloody buck, I said something along the lines of I've just taken my hunter's ed class and one of the things stated was have curtiousy for the non-hunters, so try to clean the animal up as much as you can before taking the pic. Then he comments back and is like, Back when I took hunters ed. the main thing stated was hunters safety. - REALLY? I would have never thought that when taking hunter's ed you would actually learn about hunters safety. <--that was me trying to be sarcastic.:rolleyes:. so yea...just lil' more venting I guess....So now we are arguing over the pic and what not, but whatever I can comment until they throw me off the board...:ranting:<---lol - But like I said it really doesn't really bother me but I'm sure not everyone wants to see that....but whatever

ETD, I wish more young people were in your mold. When I see street gangs and all of America's problems and get really depressed, then I read your posts and for a moment, get to reflect back to my youth, and can appreciate that we still have young people who can think on their own, make rational decisions, clearly see right from wrong, and are not afraid to buck the system when you know you are right. Thanks for your posts and keep on fighting the good fight! HM

Bruce you are being a little judgmental about rage broadheads. Whats the difference with shootin them with a muzzy 3 blade 1 and 1/4 all the way through and you have the Rage holes who are 1 1/2 exit hole. I am pretty sure you hunt with rifle Im sure an -06 leaves at least an 1 1/2 exit whole. Anyways, people should clean up there deer before they put pix on the internet or anyways else for that matter. And for my personal opinion I really don't care who I affend by hauling my deer around in my truck they can just get over it, and If its a nice buck I will probably leave the tailgate open. But thats just a SOUTHERN TRADITION..... but thats just my opinion.

I agree with the whole bloody thing. your right it does give us hunters a bad name. my hunter ed teacher said the same thing about cleanin up as much as possible. and people like the person who posted that pic with the huge entry hole are #1 making anti hunters dislike us more and #2 its turning the people that are neutral about hunting into more anti hunters.

Bruce you took the words right out of my mouth. I personally wish those that do post picks would also take their pictures out in the woods. Not on the concrete floor hanging, or in the back of a truck bed etc.

If the enterance and exit hole is that nasty use a bow or rifle to cover the hole or blur it out.

I agree with her on this.

No I don't think I'm being judgemental, I speak about Rage Badheads the same way rage does only I don't hesitate to point out that Rage broadhead bad points.

My 100 gr. 4 Blade muzzy broadheads have a 1" cutting diameter nowhere near the 1 1/2" that rage boasts about, I think the 1" or even up to the 1 1/4" diameter wound is more than enough to ethically send a Deer into it's afterlife.
That's why Rage broadheads are banned in many states because there's NO need for broadheads to cut larger than 1 1/4" and I applaud those states that Ban Rage broadheads if they don't draw the line somewhere Rage will come out with the 1-3/4" or 2" or larger broadheads don't you believe there should be a limits on broadheads.
when does it go from ethical to unethical???
AND the .30-06 is a fine hunting rifle but I hunt with a .270
