I flipped it on for about 3 minutes.  I could see where it was headed and so in keeping with my normal daily routine, re-instituted my boycott of CNN and turned off their liberal crap reporting.

 :yeah: tuned in for about 3 mins also in about the middle and they had a guy drinking beer,cussing and smoking run up and shoot a crocodile in the head that was hooked and drug up on shore. I should have known but had to check. He said let me put my beer down! I watched long enough for him to ask "how much for one of those?" as they drove by lions in no more than and acre or 2 enclosure.  Wow as bad of a perspective as you could find and so far from a real hunting situation.

But unfortunately some people do consider that "hunting"

That’s why I posted this.... many of us come across a show like this and just flip the channel because we don’t like or agree with it. However, unfortunately, it IS going out to the general uniformed public whom then passes judgements and views from what they just watched. I feel it is our responsibility as hunters and managers of our wildlife to be aware of what is out there influencing the public view, and how best to respond to it.

Best way to do this is prepare non hunters meals, delicious of course, and take them shhooting

Start with a .22 and make t fun. Ive converted quite a few urban non hunters over the years with misconceptions regarding hunting.

Whenever someone you knows makes a misconceived argument about hunters correct them and offer to show them the truth.
Most are open minded, some are so close minded and ignorant not worth trying but most people will. :tup:

 :yeah:  And the type of people that watch CNN's crap are the people that will never listen to an argument against a topic with an open mind.  They believe they're watching the news, but what they are really getting is biased political commentary.
