    Alright, so my gf and i started dating the summer between junior and senior year of high school, we now go to same college as well :), we didn't plan it that way though. Thats just a little background info.

    My girl recently got into guns, so that's a good success...anti-gun to shooting when we can and now having her own 22lr :).

    So I'm over at her place flipping through channels and we were watching some random hunting channel, and my the gf was asking what it is like to hunt ( :D ) and we were just sitting talking about my hunts, how everyone in my family hunts and just some random hunting stories as a kid. Mary (my gf) leaves to make me food (she likes making me food :cool: ), and her sister casually comes in, she asks me to change the channel, so i just give her the remote and say "anything you want". Then she starts talking crap about how hunters are stupid for hunting, and kill "all the members of the poor lil cutie family" i though she was kidding and said "yea sure what ever" then she goes into all the random $hlty crap about how hunters shoot animals for no reason and then shows me an anti-gun/anti hunting website on her laptop and basically starts "yelling" at me saying we cause car crashes bc the deers are scared of hunters and run out onto roads, we hurt the population, we harm the animals habitat, and that we just hide behind an excuse saying its "what my mother f*#king grandparents did" now that really pissed me off bc my gpa just died and he, my dad and i were hunting buddies, so it hurt me, so i told Mary just to talk to her sis to calm down. Mary talked to her sis about how its just a personal thing to hunt or not and that its nice to hunt because he (referring to me) likes being in nautre. and then her sister (Ali) is like yea i guess so. Yesterday i go over to hers to pick her up for a date...same thing when Mary is getting ready. Ali starts talking crap about how hunters suck :mad: and she used "oh my grandparents hunt and $hlt" as the excuse that we use. It kinda ruined the date because I'm still upset about losing my grandpa, how do i deal with her crap without upsetting anyone?

    Ali isn't young shes around 23, im 18 im a bio/premed student going into medicine later. She picks on me saying i'll be a bad doctor because i kill animals... no idea what to say. So far I've just been ignoring her **** because when I'm angry, I don't stay calm and usually yell. But shes starting to get on my nerves now haha. SO any tips to deal with people like this?

    Thanks in advance :)

    I will tell you good luck, you won't like or find helpful my advice. Sorry its like that, my sis in law is pretty much the same. Lots of talking, but she was more mature and curious than hateful. She is by no means wanting to shoot or hunt, but now she understands why I do. Good luck lil man....

    You could try explaining to her that hunting helps to keep the populations down and prevent many of the animals from starving. Without this culling many game species would quickly overwhelm their habitats resources. Unfortunately it sounds as if she has learned everything she needs to know from PETA or The Sierra Club and doesn't really care about your opinions or feelings. Either express your disagreement and agree to disagree or tell her to STFU.

    Pull up a video of how cows and chickens are killed and explain to her that hunters help to preserve animals by keeping their numbers in check and that a good portion of licensing fees etc pays for protecting the wild areas they live in.
    If she won't listen. Screw her she is just ignorant and probably an Obama supporter.

    Ask her if she's a vegetarian, better yet, vegan, Then call her a hypocrite...assuming she's a meat eater.

    Then tell her to stop shaving her legs and armpits and go live in the forest if she's unhappy with humans being at the TOP of the food chain.

    Wildlife management is a HUGE human responsibility, hunters don't kill for the sake of killing, if they did, there would be nothing left to hunt, the last thing everybody wants. A significant amount of people rely on hunting for survival, ask her what she would eat if the grocery store was 100 miles away and she had next to no money to buy food, which sadly is the case for many Americans.

    Sometimes you have to accept the fact that you just can't reason with some people.

    If you are going to be honest then you will need to always admit that there are some "hunters" who do shoot and kill anything that moves. As long as you are not that kind of person, then you can talk about how hunting programs support wildlife management in your state by providing funding. And besides the excitement of hunting caribou, moose, elk, deer, turkeys, pigs, and game birds, hunting puts food on the table.

    Vegetarians and animal rights people, mostly females who are projecting their frustrated maternal instincts onto animals, will never see eye to eye about hunting with you. So find out if she is one of those extremists, and if so, then don't waste your breath, just tell her you will both need to agree to disagree.

    Philosophically, you could try to ask her to point out where her own ideas and feelings come from, whatever that may be. In a diverse nation on a diverse planet, the only hope of peace is co-existence. You can point that out to her.

    Ahh well then you're screwed. There is no talking sense to an Obama supporter.
    Just tell her she is no longer welcome at your house and that you are lawfully allowed to shoot trespassers. Lol

    Why do you feel the need to justify yourself to this ding bat? Grow a set and tell her to go f@#k herself. Just another typical liberal "I don't like it so you shouldn't do it either".

    Through her ass out at Yellowstone wearing a bacon suit; ask her to re-evaluate her anti-hunting stance after her jog.

    Ali wouldn't happen to be the chunky, less-popular sister now would she? Things that make me go hmmm.

    Tell her hunting animals in the wild is the boring part of killing because the animals don't shoot back. However, hunting the animals in a war zone is a totally different experience.

    Does she eat meat? If so, she needs to shut up. If she wants to whine about poor little Bambi, fine, but the life cycle of her last burger wasn't exactly anything to be happy about if she's going to get all warm & fuzzy about animal feelings.

    Remember, liberalism is a mental disorder.

    Is she a vegetarian? If not, what the heck is she arguing about? My favorite thing to say when I have parents that are argumentative (I'm a teacher) is "Your opinion has been noted"...... Eventually you will have to be a little firm with her because people like her usually don't stop. Heed my warning.....If you marry this girl, you marry her sister. If you want peace you have to nip this in the bud. Tell her that if she doesn't like to hunt, then don't do it. Good luck!

    You can also tell her that if people don't hunt that the wildlife population would increase to the point that the animals would starve to death because they would run out of food sooner than later.

    You are not going to like my answer.

    There is nothing you can say to this person that will have any effect on her beliefs, or the words that come from her mouth. You may as well try to hold a discussion with a zombie.

    An appropriate response may be something on the order of: "Thank you for sharing your opinions with me. You and I have different opinions. For you to continue to attempt to force your point of view on me is bullying." THEN SHUT UP.

    You, sir, are endeavoring to approach this in a logical manner. That was your first mistake (Well, maybe not getting a wingman to take her out of play was the first mistake) This person has already formed an opinion, and it is now the consistency of 28 day old concrete. Yes, it is based on fallacies, inaccuracies, bad information, propaganda, being brain dead, etc ad infinitum.

    So what? What do makes you think you have the ability to sway what she so ardently believes in? Also known as "Don't confuse me with facts- my mind is made up." These are people that will stand there eating a chicken sandwich with a glass of milk, wearing a wool sweater, leather boots, and berate you for shooting Bambi's Daddy. DO NOT PRESUME THERE IS LOGIC BEHIND THOSE EYEBROWS.

    Of course, you could take the underhanded approach- the next time she brings up the line about what grandparents did, SUDDENLY burst into tears. Audibly. I mean REALLY. Where your girl will hear. Weep inconsolably. Finally manage to stammer out the recent loss of a dear family member, and how disconcerting it has been to hear this person denigrating a departed member of your family that was close to you.

    With a bit of luck, you will (a) receive sympathy from your lady (and I will not speculate on the form THAT might take- and neither should anyone else here) and (b) the Wicked Witch of the West may be designated as persona non grata by your lady (at least in your presence) and you will not have the airhead around to annoy you.

    Yes, it is a cheap shot. :p But hard to be made out as a bully when your sensitive side has been so scarred by her thoughtless actions and comments.
