    I just finish reading the February 2014 Field and Stream magazine.
    On page 9 under the title “Best Days of the Rut Bucks” you will see the following words.

    NOVEMBER 3 -“I was fortunate to “harvest” a magnificent 18-point buck …David Comer.

    NOVEMBER 11- I “arrowed” a 149 inch bruiser…..Chris Collins.

    Will somebody let me know if you find the words kill or killed in this magazine or any other hunting magazines? The Editors know what they are doing by using the proper Lingo for the masses.

      I wasn't even aware that this was an issue until I read this post. And to be honest, it wont suprise me if I have never used the word "harvest" or "harvested" in reference to one of my kills in all my life. I've also used the word "killed" plenty around non-hunters who aren't with the antis and can't remember one ever getting squemish or giving me a negative response becuase of my choice of words. They know killing is what hunting is all about. And they also know that "killed" means the same thing as "harvested" and other words of the like.
