    Default Just getting this out there...

    what do you say to people when you are telling them about killing a deer and they just are disgusted with it and can't believe you would kill an innocent animal...

    Several of my co-workers said this...

    I think it is awesome that you are continuing a great american tradition. Legally hunting and killing wild game for your familys consumption is great. You are a fantastic lady and my hat is off to you. Keep it up girl. You have alot of great people behind you.

    Try being diplomatic and explain how you are helping control the population and participating in sound managment practices. you could also try to introduce them to the outdoors. If not wait until they hit one with their car and get the estimates from the body shop. them ask them how innocent bambi is. If these things dont work find new people to talk to at work.

    I tell them that 100's of thousands of deer die of starvation in a harsh Michigan Winter, and I practice with my bow all year to make a quick and ethical kill. Then I ask if they would rather die quickly, or starve to death. Then I talk about how many deer there are in this state, and how many car accidents they cause, that could potentially hurt thier loved ones. They usually don't change their way of thinking completely, but they at least see my point.

    Living within 10 miles of the real WOODSTOCK, I find that I keep my stories to my self unless asked.......

    I dont want to hear the details of the arts and crafts festival, they dont want to hear the details of my blood trail.......

    Not trying to be a DICK, but you are at work to work, not tell your hunting stories......

    that being said, my boss and I both hunt (archery, rifle, muzzleloader), so we tell stories, back and forth about BLOOD and GUTS all the time......

    just like your protected from second hand smoke, they too have the right to be protected from the things, they dont like, or feel the same about.....
    I cut things up and split them down!
