    I set them down and tell them to get their facts stright, deer are not innocent they cause 100,000s of thousands of dollars to property and crops, that do impact food costs at the store. Then i tell them that if hunters didnt help control the deer herds, that their would be more deer then people in 3 years from now, They would eat so much soon their would be no trees, plants, veggies ext, and they would adapt to become meat eaters and start eating humans and would end all mankind on earth.

    I would discontinue the conversation with them,you won't change their narrow minds and will just end up in a arguement that you can't win in their eyes.And then go elsewhere and find someone that is interested...(me me me) Just aslong you don't start telling all about it was really the Mathews that did the job

    Default I always tell them

    There more deer in the US right now and its because of hunters and the money they spend. I tell them there more lan avalaiable for wildllife today because of hunters support.

    I tell them deer will diesease if the herds are not managed and controled.

    If they mention peta. Tell them Peta actaully has killed dogs and cats because of over population. Also tell tthem Peta spends very little but takes in Millions. Where does the money go. It goes over seas in someone pocket.
    NRA President slaghter the Peta represenative in a debate. Wasnt even close. I use to have the video of that debate. Funny stuff.

    It good see Palin stands up for hunters and women that hunt.

    Generally speaking, I don't speak to people who think like that.

    But then again, I don't come to work bragging about killing animals either. Main reason being, I don't like these .

    I work in an office for the most part. One time, I took off the morning to go hunting....was to report at noon. Shot a deer, gutted it, tagged it, hung and skinned it and was at work by noon. Everyone in the office was complaining about the blood all over my hands and up my forearms. My supervisor asked me what is was from, I wouldn't tell him. I just sat in my cube and panted real loud and stared at the wall the rest of the day and never blinked. People have kept out of my way ever since.

    I always ask them if they have a better way for a deer to die?

    The likely hood is that if it did not die at the hands of a hunter it would not have had an "easier" death "naturally" in the woods.

    Death from disease or starvation during a rough winter usually means days or weeks of suffering instead of just seconds or even hours (if we make a bad shot). Sometimes "natural" death is ended by being eaten while still alive by coyotes etc.

    An anti-hunter might say we should just let them die from "old age". We all know that death from old age for a deer really means that their teeth get so bad that one winter they cannot eat enough to stay healthy and they die from starvation or disease too.

    We all know that life/death in the wild for deer and other wild animals is brutal and unfortunately that is the way it is. It is not like a Bambi cartoon.

    I tell them If God did not want me to kill animals and eat them he should not have made them out of meat.
    In all seriousness, I just tell them that in order for me to live other things must die. Or just explain that Animals that have K9 teeth and eyes in the front are predators.

    I wouldn't say much to them that's for sure. I'd probably just walk away and not say a word to them unless it was work related. Those type of people only lead to trouble.
    That look on my face is not concern, its shock at your utter stupidity!

    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.....
    Does this mean that I have a right to be protected from glaring stupidity?

    The first thing I do is ask them what they had for lunch. If they had any kind of animal I ask them who killed it and usually that quiets them down.

    All that aside, congrats on your deer!

    One thing that has tainted the minds of the non hunters
    which we must convince that this is a good thing and that we are not a bunch of sadistic killers
    is that Disney's gave those cute little fellars a voice and mad animals on tha same level as humans
    so politely inform them of this fact
    it helps to get them back into tha real world
    one thing that is good is not to tell all the gory details just that I harvested a a game animal
    also that they are less in cholesterol and fat than chicken
    so I hunt healthy
    even in there lack of understaning and proagranderize minds
    we must treat them with the dignity that all of humanity deserves
    not to agree with some of the horrible things people do
    respect given is respect recived
    try to do something that is not to obvious to help them out at work
    show them that hunters are a kind and caring people

    I guess I am just lucky. Most all my coworkers are chomping at the bit to fill their freezers with some central Texas venison.

    If I felt like I couldn't talk about my hunting stories at work then I'd find a new job. Hey Bunny, I don't think you were trying very hard not to be a . Cause you sure sound like one. Don't worry about it Mathewsgirl, I wouldn't expect anything less from a "Yankee". You just keep whackin em and stackin em. If they can't handle you down across the Red then just move north. We dont mind good ol huntin stories, even at work.
