NYT Making hunters look heartless...

Another example of NYT trying to make us gun owners look bad like heartless animal murders. I think the moonbat school system has trained this kid well, and that's probably why he had such a hard time taking the shot, but they make it seem like he's being forced into it. Yeah the dad was kind of an asshole not letting the kid get his mind in order before taking the shot, but I think the kid turned this into a much bigger deal than this needed to be. If he wanted to get so worked up about it, he could've just missed on purpose the first time.

I don't really consider myself a hunter, but I've been hunting a few times over the years. I took a second to let the gravity of what I was going to do sink in before taking my first shot, but it was nothing like this kid. I think if this had gone like it goes with most kids' the first times without it turning into a deal they wouldn't have had a story and shit-canned the tape, and it probably never would have seen the light of day.

What do you guys think? Mini hit job? What was your first shot like?

Let me first say. I don't hunt. I would like to, but I only ever went out twice when I was younger, and never got anything. So I don't even know how to field dress a deer.

I want to hunt. But I don't care to get up at 3 in the morning to go out and sit in the cold.

Problems with this video.

1. The kid obviously was not ready to hunt. His choice. I don't hold it against him.
2. When he first held the rifle, he just didn't seem like he knew what he was doing. Something about his stance just seemed off.
3. Shooting it "in the butt". You don't take a shot, unless it is a good shot. Now, things can happen. A miss, it moves, any number of things. But to get a bad shot on it, and decide "you can't kill it". Sure, let it suffer till someone else takes care of it.
4. He stands back, almost scared when they are dressing it. Animals have blood. They also have guts, and innards, and they poop. Deal with it. If you don't like it, you shouldn't have taken the first shot "in the butt".

The father shouldn't have pressured him, I don't agree with that. But the kid pulled the trigger. No one else made him.
This will be the best security for maintaining our liberties. A nation of well-informed men who have been taught to know and prize the rights which God has given them cannot be enslaved. It is in the religion of ignorance that tyranny begins. -Ben Franklin
