Default I prefer to love animals now. My brother does not.

Ive decided to quit hunting animals. I decided today to not hunt animals and to simply make friends with all wildlife. I walked out into the woods and hugged the first animal I found. We had a bonding moment and then we both went about our day.

I find hugging wildlife to be just as rewarding as hunting. It is cleaner, liberals like it and I get that warm fuzzy feeling like when I make friends with potentially dangerous animals. Im going to be guiding "hugging" hunts here in the future (joke). If anybody is interested in scratching your liberal itch to be "one" with nature feel free to give me a call.


My brother decided not to make friends with animals today and had a one sided fight with this animal. I believed this animal actually wanted to make friends with my brother but he disagreed so we are going to discuss this further this evening over a porkchop dinner

This is a pretty awesome picture.

How'd you get close to it like that? Is it hurt of something?

When I was a kid I caught 3 wild piglets and raised them in a pen

Once they got to about 100 Lbs, I slaughtered them.

Just wondered if you will be selling baby bottles of milk and pink wilderness blankets to the guided huggie hunt participants to give to the wildlife? Oh, and can I do an internship to get your technique down?

I heard they had one of those pig babys in Santa Rosa at the Safari park. We got a 25lb spiral cut ham for the Christmas festivities and that didn't last long. I can't wait till the Safari starts selling guided hunts.

Just don't love wild baby bears. One of the reasons mama bear shows how big her paws are...

Ok I'll give it a try. But, before we go out hugging game animals, I want to know how much you are charging for this feel good excursion!

The little piglet was in a herd of 30 or so. We rode right up on them bedded up. They all ran out of a small bush and we found this little guy still held up by himself in that bush. Took a few pics and sent him on his way. My brother shot his hog on the next ridge. He could have taken one out of the herd of 30 but he still had his rifle in the sleeve and ammo in the bottom of his backpack and all the hogs ran off before he could get a shot off.

Nice. I am a firm believer in loving animals. Using all of them. Eating the meat, using the hide, bones for tools. And thanking the animal for it's food and pelt. I would also eat it's heart to gain it's power.

And here I thought I was stumbling onto a muck boots and velcro glove thread..
Still havent found a district attorney who could twist " B-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a" into "stop, no or dont".
Op will be calling, where are the hunts?
