    There is an awful amount of hate in those comments ! With what was posted, I would have to think that any number of things could take place, incuding some “nut” case shooting a hunter. Things could escalate real quickly in this situation. The image of hunters in the public eye has changed dramatically in my time, and I do not see it improving in the future! We have moved over the years from positive acceptance, to moderate approval and now to reluctant acceptance and the next step is giving the appearance of possible hostilities. This appears to be due to a growing anti-gun sentiment which is in connection with guns in hunting also. With the growing attitude of liberalism in this country, I am sorry to say that the future of our sport is being put in real jeopardy and a uplift in our image is needed ! I wish I had an answer how that is to be done. The placing of hunting trophies on social media is certainly not the correct step to be used, we are not signing to the choir in that situation !
    The anti's will keep it up until one of their own gets killed in a bear/deer - vehicle crash. Then their position will change.
    When I was a kid night driving was so dangerous in N.Y. there was a lower speed limit for night time travel.

    I don’t mean to harp on this issue to the point of exhaustion, but we have seen what public opinion has done regarding bump stocks, and in some regards talk about semi-auto firearms. We need to wake up to the fact that public opinion is a very strong factor when used against us, and we have very little to fight back in our defense. Some will argue that there is no problem since we are protected by the 2A. But are we really ? We have seen limitations placed on us already, what is to stop further limitations ?

    I remember that very well 99, and it is that very attitude that will hurt us all in the long run ! Two sides of a issue will never come together when butting heads, and if our sport is meaningful enough to us, we need to do all that is possible to keep a clean image. If not, then to hell with everything, because we will lose everything ! This can already be seen in some of the hunts that have been taken from us in N.J., and as anti’s see what can be done by them, it will become much worse as victory is a huge motivator for success !

    Most hunters leave an area where antis are harassing them. They go elsewhere to hunt in peace.

    Most hunters are oblivious to our failures at public relations.
    In fact, many hunters brag that they don't give a rat's ass what anybody thinks.
    The last time I brought this topic up a F&S, one user commented that I was so concerned about what others think, it was sad.

    After reading the comments from the article, I would be suspect anyone approaching my tree stand or hunting blind, as someone wanting to do harm. Sad to say but as we have seen in the past week there is a few idiots who will take their cause to the extreme, SAD!
