It looks like to me he has it wedged between the stabilizer bar on his bow and the limb of the bow.

I'd be more inclined to accept Chris' observations that demographic changes account for fewer people hunting than some "s/ce" conspiracy. The idiots at PETA aside, most people that don't hunt or never raised livestock just aren't accustomed to RifleDude's well stated "converting and animal to food." While I was practically born fishing my dad never hunted and most of my family didn't. My brother, later in life, started raising grass-fed beef as a sideline. So we just didn't grow up with that experience.

I took up hunting 7 years ago and now can't get enough of it. I mainly hunt for meat so pictures don't mean a lot to me. We take lots of pix of our kids and the places we go hiking and I'm glad we do but I've always been more focused on living the experience than documenting it. My advice to anyone regarding firearms and hunting is that you will attract more support by demonstrating knowledge, competence in the field, and ethical, humane hunting practices than you will by screaming about conspiracies and your sacred rights as granted by the 2nd amendment. Yes, it is a vital reason why we live in a (mostly) free society but you don't impress the undecided anymore than the "antis" impress you with demands for unrestricted abortion or gay marriage.

Take someone shooting and show them how to handle a rifle properly and safely. If they show further interest, invite them to tag along hunting. I have one friend who hiked with me three times two years ago, helped carry out the meat and then decided he was interested in trying hunting for himself. On our hikes I would explain what I know of hunting and why I feel - if you're going to eat meat - that it is far more ethical to take the animal's life yourself. I never waste any kind of meat anymore now that I know firsthand what it means to kill.

The pictures serve as memory joggers for me. I just don't know where the line is for tasteful and not, regarding hunting and fishing pics. A photo of any kind is unacceptable for some.

The people who knock hunting should try taking a tour in a cattle slaughter house some time. I used to occasionally work on the paging system at a one, talk about an assembly line of blood and gore.

Great post Chris, I remember the reaction of some people when it was common for hunters to drape dead deer over their fenders on their pickup or car. I think it hurt the hunting community`s public preception of hunters.

Brother, thats the truth. Be sure to tour the "gut table" when there. Wink
I worked on the kill floor for Swift in Des Moines after I got discharged from the service for about a year.
Talk about barbarism. Eek  
 
We took cattle from "mooing" to a half a beef swinging on a hook. We worked 8 hour shifts and ran close to 300 beef an hour through my station. Thank God Almighty for the USDA........

I have to agree hunting is a great life experience and should be done respectfully.
