    Personally, I don’t see any advantage in using deceptive or misleading language. Hunters kill game animals. Non-hunters know that hunters kill game animals. Using terms like “harvest” just makes it sound like we’re trying to sugar-coat or disguise the truth. I have no problem with writers or anyone else using the term “kill” in reference to hunting. But, we also should take every opportunity to include language referring to killing in a humane, sporting manner in compliance with laws and ethical standards.

    There is a newspaper outdoor writer in New Jersey who writes weekly hunting and fishing reports. He continues to use the word “kill” or “killed” in his column. Example “This hunter killed this and this hunter killed that“. I wrote him a letter and asked him to use more sensitive words like “bagged“, “harvest” or even “took” a buck. My letter fell on deaf ears. The newspaper goes out to the entire public to read. Am I correct or do you think the outdoor writer should keep using the words like “kill or killed“? It drives me crazy. Are there any suggestions on how to get him to stop using those offensive words to the non hunting public?
