Maybe it's just me but I'm bothered by what I believe is a lack of skill and ethics with, dare I say, most hunters. The most common thing that peeves me (and there are a bunch of others too) is the guy who doesn't practice with his rifle or even handle it until the eve of hunting season and sometimes not even then. I think it's dangerous, idiotic and unethical. I'm worried that these are the guys the rest of us are judged by. Coming into the office bragging you shot three and two "got away" is NOT something to be proud of. I bet most of the meat on the one they tagged ends up in the garbage too. If we can't police ourselves we will lose our hunting tradition. If we get to hunt at all it will be so regulated that it will hardly be recognizable to our dads and grandfathers. What does it mean to be a "hunter?" I'm afraid the stereotype is not a pretty picture.
