This summer I had the great opportunity to successfully hunt a lioness in the Kalahari with Shaun Keeny Safari’s. Being on the same ground with this beast that was built to kill was intimidating, to say the least. The feeling I had pumping through my body is hard to describe, but at that moment I didn’t feel like I was at the top of the food chain. Especially when the trackers realized she was circling us!
When we finally got eyes on her, things went fast, because she had eyes on us too. I was shooting my 9.3×74 double rifle. No scope, no problem. At about 40 yards away, I squeezed the trigger and it was done. Just like every hunter wants for their prey, it was a clean kill and everyone walked away with their throats still intact.
Being the huntress that I am, I posted photos of the safari for my fellow hunting friends to enjoy on my social media. That is when the anti-hunting zombies came out.
All lines were crossed with these guys and, ironically, were calling for me to be killed, because they can’t understand hunting.
They can’t grasp how the millions of dollars spent each year, in the hunting industry, helps those very animals they’re so passionate about; a lot more than the hot-air they spew on Facebook. No, they can’t comprehend why with the removal of hunting, heard populations start depleting.
For being pro-animal, these anti-hunters do a lot of nothing for the animals they care about.
It is the hunters who put their money where their passion is. They supply the income for land owners to continue to care for their herds and the cycle goes far wider and deeper from there.
So, I don’t have much to say to these anti-hunters. It would be a waste of my time and I couldn’t care less what they say about me.
It’s not a waste of time, however, to publicly display just how crazy these folks are.
For all young hunters and parents of young hunters, you are forewarned. This is what the backlash of the crazy, uninformed and emotionally driven tree-huggers looks like.
