I received this reply from Camping World.

The ever popular form reply. That's the exact same one I got. So...even though they broke absolutely no laws, yet Camping World still wants to get on a high horse. So much for being for individual freedom, especially when no laws were broken.

I don't see the big deal with the hunt. A couple of guys got to go on a big hunt, and a village got to eat that night. I think that sounds great. I don't see how thats disgusting, cruel, or anything. It's not even wasteful. I guarantee you that pretty much every singly part of the animal was used for something.

I expect PETA and others to go ballistic over that. They go ballistic when a new Popeye's opens in a town. But for a company that calls itself Camping World? That's absolutely retarded.

These geniuses apparently do not grasp the concept that ignorant stances like the one they have taken against this african hunt get publicized by the libby media and give the anti nimwits ammunition to use against people who make the "personal choice", as they put it, to hunt and own firearms. By not taking a stand they are in effect supporting the anti hunting agenda. Thanks for posting this, I have not purchased anything from this company that I am aware of but now I will see to it that I never do.

I screwed up and didn't put it in the legal and activism area. Just remember to forward it to any of your friends that hunt or camp out. I refuse to spend any money at a company that doesn't support hunting.

If hunting is bad then politicians go to Heaven, and we all know that's not true.

I went on a date once with a woman from California. When we started talking and telling each other the highlights of ourselves, I said I was a typical red-meat eating, gun-toting, hunting and fishing, Texas country boy. That lead to a big discussion about hunting, and thus killing, animals. In her words: "killing animals I don't have to kill".
To that I responded: "You're right. As an omnivore I am perfectly capable of living my life free of meat in my diet. I just like meat and wild game is probably safer to consume" I followed that up with something about how I respect others decisions to not eat any meat, and it came out that she does eat meat but it's somehow taking the moral high-ground if someone else does the killing of the animal.

Did I mention that I went on just one date with that woman?

It is always best to explain the cleaning proves and how much you enjoy it. You will find true love before you have to buy dinner!
