View Full Version : How do you answer "Bunny-Huggers"

March 9, 2009, 12:02 PM
I'm aware that some hunt edible game animals in season.
Others hunt as a conservation effort to control the numbers.
Then there are others who shoot anmials for the sport.

Regardless, do your Bunny-Hugger friends or co-workers, sarcastically ask you if it tastes good or how do you cook it.
An example is whenever I shoot a gound hog in the back yard.

My two standard replies are;
1) Only if you add some unions !!
2) Stir fried with fresh garlic, butter and some White Zinfandel !!
Heck, anything tastes good if you fry it in garlic !! ... :D

Do Y'all have any standard answers?

Be Safe !!!!

I tell them the doves are for the pet snake, the rats, squirrels and rabbits are fed as organic "whole food" to the bulldogs but we eat the deer and pork meat. The bones and hides are chew toys for the dogs.:eek:

My flippant reply is, "Hey, I'm a natural-food freak."

I have occasionally pointed out that only hunters and gardeners are do-it-yourselfers for getting food. All others hire somebody else to do the dirty scut work for them.

Bunny-Hugger friends

Bunny huggers don't make good friends if you hunt. They either become more tolerant, or they'll never get along with me.


"How can you shoot something while it's looking at you?"

Answer: Right between the eyes.


"Do you eat it?"

Answer: I prefer it to cow.

They don't usually ask me too many questions.

Just tell them it tastes great, just like manatee. :rolleyes:

I don't usually run into questions like that, but i have slipped some "bambi-huggers" some "beef" jerky once or twice in the past:rolleyes:
Some still have no idea;)

The conversation goes like this:
"I think they're cute!"
"Shut up and eat before it gets cold."

I ask 'em what it's like to be either a vegan or hypocrite. I've yet to have a vegan call me. I then ask if they've ever had meat untainted by antibiotics or growth hormones. If they are still playing, I ask them to read The Jungle.

I used to work for a major satellite company. In my work, I came into contact with many people from the surrounding states. It's amazing how angry you can make the tree-hugging, bunny-hugging hippies with the right answer.

Since my reputation preceded me, in most cases, they almost always asked about my hunting.

If the question came up about eating the fruits of my jack rabbit hunts; I eventually came up with a reply that stopped them in their tracks, and never prompted another question. (sometimes a good laugh)

-conversation usually starts on something else, then turns-
Bunny Hugger: "Do you eat the bunnies you shoot?"

Me: "Yea, tastes like fetus."

Me: "Yea, tastes like fetus."

would explain

I used to work for a major satellite company

However I like it!

but I tend to be like that myself.

Ask them if they're vegetarian. If they aren't, you've pwn3d them. If they are vegetarians, ask them why it's OK for animals to eat animals but not people.

I saw an animal rights activist asked that question on television once, her reply was 'Just because someone else is naughty doesn't mean we should be'.:rolleyes:

Logic and reason will not work on them, anthropomorphism completely rules their thought process. Notice how she said someone else when referring to the natural predators that were mentioned.


This is probably their mental image of a rabbit family.:p If one of them gets killed the other ones will be sad:(, you know like in Bambi. It is of course utterly ridiculous, but thats how they think and view the world.

G'day nate45. Looks like you have some good hunting in your area.

March 10, 2009, 06:56 PM
If we aren't supposed to eat 'em why do they taste soooooo good?:eek:

March 11, 2009, 12:02 AM
If we aren't supposed to eat them then why did God make them out of meat?
Yeah and I'm a Bambi killer too.

Bunnies have a place in this world, right next to the mashed potatoes.:D

G'day. When I was younger I used to shoot lots of bunnies. Occasionally somebody would ask 'why'. One answer that I liked to use is that farmers have a legal obligation to control (reduce) the number of rabbits on their land. Shooting is just one tool that they have and I am happy to help out. Shooting is targeted to specific animals unlike poison that can kill native (protected) animals.
