    You have Democrats and Republicans. Army and Navy. Gays and Straights. Catholics and Lutherans. John Deere and Case IH. There is a never ending list of rivalries Why would hunters be expected to be any different?

    If it looks like crap, smells like crap, tastes like crap, lies like crap; it’s more than likely a politician from Illinois.

    I regretfully agree Stan but what happened to "Together we stand, divided we fall"? Did it ever exist?

    It doesn't bother me one way or the other... i have friends on both sides of the fence. It will matter though when it comes down to us protecting our hunting rights in the near future. thats when i think all of us will stand together and unite!!

    We have sportsmen, hunters and predators. Sportsmen have to do things in special ways to make themselves feel good and better than someone else. Hunters just follow the laws and hunt by any means that will give them pleasure and hopefully provide them with a kill. Then the predator is like a house cat an opportunist. The predator sees an opportunity to make a kill and does it. The only laws the predator is concerned with are the laws of nature.

    These groups can exist together but they are never going to be in harmony. So just pick where you want to be in the scheme of things and live large.

    goog call spiker, but for real guys, i have thought about this all night, and see no other obviouse route out?
    is it not possible to unite as hunter, and trappers, and lets include fisherman. Anti huntiing organizations target fisherman just as much as hunters, me and my father went to the beach, and several peta members had artificial blood in there mouths and dressed as fish to "provide awarness" to people who do not hunt or fish

    I agree...I dont care how other people harvest their critters as long as its legal. If you want to be a jerk to someone...do it to poachers! I really think though that these days everyone is so competitive in everything, that we cant just be happy for a guy. I hunt with guys who are just happy to fill some tags and have fun. I love shooting big critters, but I really dont judge my hunts based on antler scores.

    I mean seriously...someone posts a picture of a deer and we tear apart the photo to make sure hes legal/hunting with a bow/clothing/tags.....blah blah blah! Dang...just say nice deer thanks for sharing!

    Perfect example; "If you hunt over bait, you aren't a real hunter."

    Kind of reminds me of the Civil Rights Movement. I completly agree with you. The problem is that some hunters (not all, just some I have overheard talking) are very "Bull-Headed" and have extreme opinions on things that they have no reason to dislike, nor do they understand it. I wish we could all come together just like others have done in the past; Civil Rights Movement, the framers of the constitution, the founding fathers...etc. It is not rocket science, it's just coming together to help achieve a common goal: protecting our rights that we have worked so hard to earn.

    Why can't all Americans stand together and support President Obama ? Whatever happened to "United we stand" ? Are people who don't support the president Anti-Americans ? Why doesn't my wife always agree with me on how to raise our son ? Is she anti-family ? We can all be equally devoted to the same cause (hunting) without sitting around and singing Kumbaya. Some of you guys expect every thread to be a big round of high fives. Get real.

    Hunting is changing. Some changes are good. Others are not. Consensus is based on discussion. If it comes down to a fight (which it already has in some cases) I will be right there next to all the guys who I may disagree with on AT defending our hunting privelages. But here, on this public forum, I will speak my mind.

    Want to unite hunters ? Then post up a thread telling about upcoming public hearings or give a link to your local representatives office. Encourage poeple to write their congressmen on key issues. Show up when the Fish and Game asks for input. All this "Why can't we just get along" is nothing more than posturing. No offense to the OP. You sound like a pretty good kid.

    Oh, and Merry Christmas !

    Or the shots others take without knowing the whole story...like this thread...

    Most of the people cited as the example in the OP make such statements from very subjective position, and are simply not objective...or quite frankly, uninformed and uneducated.

    While we are free to disagree about the subjective nature of hunting, and chose to employ and not employ, whatever legal methods we want, we sure as heck ought to be able to agree on the objective, and that is supporting every persons right to legally hunt however they want, whether we would engage in it or not.

    Disagreement is not, and should not be condemnation, labeling, or otherwise degrading of others because they don't do it "our" way...

    Yep - my bow is better than your bow, hunting over bait isn't hunting, gun hunting isn't hunting, no hunting with dogs, lights at night for hogs, the list goes on and on. Yes, it gets extremely old hearing all this stuff. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for good natured ribbing about the my bow is better than yours crap - my friends and I have a lotta fun with it. Problem is when people take that stuff seriously. Shoot what you what like and don't give a hoot about what anyone thinks. As far as hunting methods/tactics, if it's legal and you enjoy it, by all means have at it.

    Great post - I lke your point of view.

    Because as a species we naturally find a way to separate ourselves from oneanother. Imagine if PETA was behind it to keep hunters at one another (a house that is divided on itself cannot stand), kind of how big government/NWO uses politics today..........hhhhmmmm!
