Y'all know me. I love meat as much as anybody on this planet. If you've read this blog for very long at all you know I enjoy hunting and harvesting my own elk and venison.
But apparenlty I don't love it as much as the guys in this news article ...
You can click over and read the story if you wish but here is my version. I've changed the names to better reflect the characters involved.
Jimmy Ray Dupree is out hunting. J
immy Ray Dupree shoots at a deer wounding it.
Jimmy Ray Dupree tracks said deer to the property of Tough Tony Titwiler.
When Jimmy Ray Dupree finds the deer Tough Tony Titwiler is already skinning the deer.
Tough Tony Titwiler tells Jimmy Ray Dupree the dear is his, a gift from a friend who shot it earlier that day.
The men argue until Tough Tony Titwiler tells Jimmy Ray Dupree to get off his property.
Jimmy Ray Dupree leaves but is not satisfied so he goes and recruits help from family member Bobby Joe Dupree.
The Duprees return to the scene and in my favorite part of the story the news articles says Jimmy Ray Dupree and Bobby Joe Dupree were both listed in stable condition after being hospitalized for injuries suffered in the altercation.
There are two lesson to be learned here. ONE) Shoot better so you don't merely wound your prey and TWO) Don't go get someone to help you fight unless they are actually going to be a help.
Come on guys. It's idiots like you guys that give we hunters a bad name. Maybe they can take lesson from Mark Zuckerberg.
