  • OK, so I had a picture of the exit-wound on the gobbler that my friend killed with his bow this year it was a good, educational

    OK, so I had a picture of the exit-wound on the gobbler that my friend killed with his bow this year it was a good, educational picture that showed what a Rage 2-blade expandible broadhead can do. It may have been slightly bloody, but that is nothing to be offended by, I mean if it weren't for blood we would all be dead. Anyway, I posted the picture on this sight and one of the editors or somebody took it off. Can somebody please tell me why these people get so so upset by blood when it has everything to do with hunting?

    rule of thumb for taking pictures of your kill. no screwing around. take meaningful pictures. they might of taken it like you were showing off how badly your turkey bled. maybe it showed that it was unethical, i don't know.

      It was just the opposit, it showed how ethical and quick-killing bowhunting for gobblers is. And they still shouldn't be offended by blood ("If you are offended by blood you are spitting in the face of God. Shame on you! God gave us blood so we can quickly and humanely harvest his animals for our food."-Ted Nugent on Spirit of The Wild TV)

        I dunno..I dont think we hunters are offended by blood per se...we understand that blood is part of hunting etc, etc...

        However, as hunters we are a minority, socially, politically and otherwise...hunting is not a "right" guaranteed by the constitution...we have to project the best image possible to the voting, non-hunting public...this not only means obeying game laws and not being a "slob" hunter but also conducting yourself ethically and promoting our sport in a positive way...taking classy, tasteful photos of your game is one way to help do that..

          Maybe it didn't down load correctly.

            Most mags. tell you when sending in photos to "clean up" the animal. No blood, no tounge hanging out, etc.
            It's not hunter's it offends. It's the anti's, and the dramatic pics could be "to much" for younger viewers.
            As 2Poppa said " just a thought".

              Those pictures shouldn't be considered too much for anybody. Being offended by blood is completely immoral and to pretand otherwise is souless.

                    I dont think we need to worry about offending the anti's...they already hate us...

                    we need to keep the VOTING, NON-HUNTING PUBLIC on our side...its not the antis we have to worry about..its PUBLIC OPINION that will make or break us...

                      I certainly couldn't have said it better. As hunters we know all about blood and displaying it does no good thing. Public opinion should be very important to us as a group. Many people don't hunt and don't care if we do but a picture that is not properly displayed could change the opinion of some non-hunters and that something that we simply can't afford to do.

                        KingFisher907, not sure about your state, but the state I live in, along with many others actually have written into their state constitutions that hunting is a right that we are entitled to.

                              I don't see it so much anymore but since I was a kid I was taught to have respect for the game I hunt. Yes, I kill it but my objective is kill it humanely and to treat it with respect all the way to the freezer... not to mangle it, splatter it with blood and parade it around in an inhumane form. Its not just the tree huggers you offend, it is the people who have a high regard for the animals we hunt. And on this site, my friend, I suspect that would be many of us.
