    Well done Hubba, we need more people like you that can explain why we hunt instead of starting a fight, and making hunters look bad. My hats off to you!

    Great job Hubba. Too bad all treehuggers weren't like that guy. If his treehugger friends found out he asked for an elk steak they will never talk to him again. LOL

    nice going Hubba!
    I think most treehuggers have a great heart, they are just a little misguided. You chose to educate this man with a calm and non-agressive approach and he listened. That is awesome and gives me a little hope for the future of our divided nation. I do believe that if most treehugging vegitarians could be educated they would stop with the protest to hunting. I myself have been successful in getting several longtime vegitarians to secumb to an elk burger. Even the most diehard veggie cannot resist the wonderful aroma of an elk cooking on the grill, even though some wont admit it. You can see their mouths watering as they give a half-hearted "no thanks". Then, looking at a bowel of couscous and tofu say, "maybe just a bite!" And another person finds the primordial spirit.

    This is one of the better threads I have read in a while. Good job Hubba. I think we all should take the same approach you did with this guy, but I myself would have probably told the guy where he could bury his head. I might have added to it though, that my anemic children can only eat "ORGANIC" red meat is why I do it. Good job again with the way you handled it.

    If you guys really want a laugh at some tree huggers go to that nobearhuntnv.com (or .org) its one of the two. Those tree huggers dont realize that we hunters are the conservationist NOT them.

    A well done response hubba20. As hunters we need to be winning over more of the anti hunting community with dignity and respectful responses instead of the easy "f*** off" messages. If tree hugger respectfully sees more of what you showed him from all the others hunters out there that he meets, he might end up joining in on the hunting scene himself one day.

    Great job Hubba. The easy thing to do would have been to tell him off, but kudos to you for taking the opportunity to educate and hopefully dispel, with at least one guy, the stereotype of the bloodthirsty redneck hunter.

    The worst thing you can do when accused of being a redneck brains-blaster, is to respond like a redneck brains-blaster!

    Excellent response, Hubba!

    Best of Luck,
    Jeff
