He handled that well considering the circumstances. We all need to remember to remain calm when faced with something like this. They will use anything we do against us. We don't want to give them ammo. I would hang my head in shame if I was the parent of that boy.

There was a group a few years ago that cut down several large trees near the entrance to State land in Suffolk County, Long Island, NY, so that hunters could not access with their vehicles to park. After the logs were cleared, these wonderful, social justice warriors decided to douse unsuspected hunters and the areas of the park with cologne and perfume. They were finally arrested and charged with harassment. It is also very common for homeowners near or on waterfront properties to call the police during duck/migratory bird season. There are multiple stationary blinds that have use for decades by waterfowl hunters. When the shotguns start going off, they call the police about the "shots fired" in full blown panic mode. They are quickly told that if they call again, they too will be charged with harassment.

Another prime reason why the People of the state of NY would like to get rid of the city. The liberal bias and size rule the rest of the state. Needs to go! I feel for this guy Its unfortunate that he has to put up with this.

I’d love to see that Unidentified man and his punk kid come to WV and try that. I really would. The man would shortly be identified and the boy would learn a lot about life real quick.

Speak for yourself JohnMC, you see what the media wants you to see. NY is a big, big place. I live 25 miles north of the city and have never once experienced anything like the video. I hunt in small plots all over the area. The only concern that people have around here really is they dont want to see a deer dying in their front yard, and I get it. Look at a map of teh state and see the location of the metro area...most of the state welcomes hunting...

I admire the hunter's composure. I'm pretty sure that fat daddy would have gotten a tongue lashing from me...at the very least.

Approached a land owner in Westchester County, NY as he was raking leaves in his yard to ask permission. He became irate and made a threatening move with his rake. He was so angry he was spitting as he yelled, something about murder and manhood and fornication. I backed away.

what a tolerant and diverse little community they have there! inclusive living at its finest!

ol' poppa daddy must be so proud of jr's mastery of peaceful protest, using only intelligent conversation and a hockey stick

i'm just thankful things didn't escalate, that guy could have easily done something drastic like assumed the genders of the offended duo and used the wrong pronouns while apologizing to them for not doing anything wrong

From: JohnMC
26-Oct-19
Kakiat Who do you think I was speaking for? Just the fact you have to worry about a deer dying in someone’s front yard if you do have a place to hunt says enough. Not to mention the north east is so full of wackos the majority of the people will vote for the likes of AOC, Bernie, Warren, Chucky Schumer just to name a few. At least our gay governor pretends to be a moderate.

WildDan is spot on. Check out this graphic from the election results in NY. Lots of conservatives but they can’t compete with NYC. It dictates all politics in NY State.

He should have told the kid that he already ate his pet. Seriously, should have laughed at the father and told him to get lost. No patients for these nutty people.

This is exactly why hunter harassment laws are in place. Video tape them and call a game warden to help you.

I grew up in The Bronx and moved to lower westchester last year and I can tell you our lifestyle is not accepted out here and I could care less. Still skin my deer in my backyard facing my vegan neighbors dining room window. Yes she called the cops. They asked me to not do that. I said absolutely not. Even offered the officers some venison

Pat, Illinois is the same, the rest of the state cant beat Lake and 'Crook' counties (Chitcago) ..... yea, I rave at times about NY too, but their politics, not all their people ... thank goodness we have the electoral college, or this is the type of people who'd be running this country .... I'll bet if one asked this kid where his hamburgers came from, he'd say McDonald's ......... smh ..

My buddy and I hunted part of Otis Pike in Calverton on opening day a few years back and out of the four available parking spots, three vehicle had their tires slashed. Our vehicle was the only one spared Im guessing because we were parking a little further off the road then the others. It stinks sometimes sitting in the woods thinking that your car is getting messed up while legally hunting in a designated piece of land.

From: Will
26-Oct-19
That popped up on my Fakebook feed the other day. I was struck by the hunter keeping his calm, and more so, by the absolute inability of the dad or kid to 1.) control themselves and 2.) communicate in any way shape or form. It was also really ugly to see the kid start flinging expletives and the dad just stands there, almost admiringly. That's messed up. Agree or disagree, that's not how you discuss things if you have any hope of actually helping.

I'm sure it happens more in the North East. That said, I hunt off a cul de sac of 650K-1.5Mil houses in one spot. Had a mom, dad and two kids walk by one day as I was getting set to go in. I was expecting the video in this thread... But the whole family was legitimately curious. So I let them check out my release, my bow, described how my climber worked, how archery hunting works, the animals I've seen there etc. I probably spoke to them for 45' trying to be sure they walked away thinking hunting was cool. Saw the family again a year later, and they were excited to see me and hear about how "their woods were".

Point being... Not every person up here that does not hunt is off their rocker as that family appeared to be. There are plenty of good, non hunting folks too...

I have been to Colorado several times, great place and people. My phone is full of friends that live in Colorado as well. John MC isn’t a typical example of people from Colorado, no more then the Dbag and his spawn on the video are not a typical example of someone from NY.

I saw this earlier. What upset me the most was the kids vile mouth in front of his Father. That kid will end up in prison you can count on it. And what a pitiful example of parenting. No Father, that truly loves his son, will let him act and talk like that.

From: JohnMC

Funny trial153 was part of what led me to my conclusion above. I would imagine most of the numbers are people you have paid to take you hunting. Seems to be your definition of hunting.

You know.... All you guys who have split politics into Trump vs. AOC really are amusing to those of us with functional brains...

Believe it or not, a solid majority in this country have no more use for one than the other. The problem is that Primaries are decided by the so-called “base”, and the pyramids are upside-down. The kind of person that probably 65% of Americans WANT as President couldn’t get elected as dog-catcher and wouldn’t want to put their family through the process in the first place.

And just so you guys are aware....

“A cold-hearted bowhunter shrugged off a sobbing boy who confronted him about hunting...’”

The NY Post is owned by NewsCorp. You know.... Rupert Murdoch? FOX “News”?

The left hand knows not what the right hand is doing, nor cares, as long as both are making money...

From: JohnMC
27-Oct-19
What trial153 will never get is why people in fly over county can’t stand many (like himself) in the NE. They continuously dog on places, much like he does all the time to states like Indiana and people that live there. Then he gets his panties in a huge wad when someone criticizes anything in his universe and starts calling said people names, similarly to the little boy in the clip. It shows his many insecurities. But keep up with the name calling if it makes you fill better!

Unbelievable mouth on that punk kid. If I had done that at his age, hell, at any age, my daddy would have slapped me into the middle of next week. It’s a shame that there are more and more of these idiots in our country. They think milk comes from a carton and hamburger comes from McDonalds I guess. Sad...

Johnmc, you started the name calling when you called us all wackos. I'm pretty sure you said some other crap about us before that but the comment looks to be deleted. Dont sit there like a keyboard warrior saying to "keep up the name calling" when it's obvious that you started it. Were all on the same side here and we should be acting like it. It doesnt matter where you're from, who you voted for, what your party affiliation is or if your gay. Were all hunters here. I'm assuming were all ethical hunters as well. I'm also assuming that were all f*****g adults here, start acting like it.

From: JohnMC
27-Oct-19
Thisismyhandle - Read a little closer I did not call you ALL wackos I said the NE is so full of wackos that majority votes in the likes of AOC ect - or something to that effect. So not all but enough people (more than half) to vote in a bunch of people that not only want to turn your part of the country but the whole country to Socialism. Hopefully you are in the minority and if so I am not calling you a wacko. But if you think AOC, Bernie and similar folks are good for the country, that our gun rights should be taking away, that I should have to pay more taxes to support those that are to lazy to support themself, that a sovereign country should not have borders that control who comes across them, that in general the government can do better at most anything than the free market I guess I am calling you wacko too. If not we are probably on the same side.

For the record I am seeing my once red state Colorado turn to purple and now mostly blue. Thankfully it not as bad as the NE and most of West coast yet. I don’t like but I also don’t get pissed at the person that points it out.

From: PECO

I agree AOC is a wacko.

27-Oct-19
I'm in total agreement that aoc is a wack job. And that Bernie is just another rich old geezer that's out of touch. Much like Biden. Regardless of all that political bs, you're gonna get anti hunting wackos all over the country. Not just long island and the northeast.

It's funny hunting on Long island. You do everything you can to avoid people while you are hunting since you don't know how they will act. I'd say it's about a 50/50 split.

Pat's map shows that the only counties that are Dem. is where the major cities are. A shame that this state is run by the Citiots. Major drag-down on us. Hudson Valley infiltrated by NY'ers. Plattsburg, Rochester, Ithaca, Syracuse, Albany, etc. The cities determine our fate. Sux big time.

From: TrapperKayak

I forgot Buffalo. Another Dem stronghold. People are moving out of the state, just the wrong ones.

Sports are definitely not just for people who dont bowhunt. That being said, the last 4 giants games have made me wish even more that i had private land to bowhunt on.

What is affecting the deer on Long island more than anything is urban sprawl. The hunter should have told them that they built their house on the deer's land and now it is up to hunters to thin the herd.

From: TrapperKayak
07-Nov-19
Yeah, figuratively speaking, their house landed on a nice herd of deer like Dorothy's house landed on the witch of the east. Maybe that's something that kid can understand - something from tv.
