Skip to comments.Game Hunting Cheerleader Hits Back at Haters: ‘Economics Provides the Answer!’
Posted on 07/03/2014 7:11:57 AM PDT by rktman
The support and criticism of a Texas university cheerleader who features her big game hunting adventures on Facebook has grown within the week. She recently has been responding to haters with information about how she says killing some of these creatures actually helps their species, local villages and the economy as a whole.

Thread from yesterday was pulled because a lot of Freepers are tree huggers who hate what this young lady does. Much vitriol.
they didn't exactly sound like tree huggers... a lot of them are hunters themselves...
A hunt for a cattle killing leopard or lion generates thousands of dollars of income for providing the villages with clean water and the children with at least some education.
and 19 year old cheerleaders hungry for publicity.
Strange about “animal lovers”. The needed culling of predatory animals to protect the economic health and food supplies of HUMAN BEINGS is to be villified and those who perform that duty are to be condemned.
However, when ENDANGERED wildlife and birds (eagles etc) are chopped or fried by the “blessed” windmill farms and vast solar reflector fields are lauded as a “So what”.
We have here a new definition of “hypocracy”.
Tree huggers and animal lovers seem to have gotten the idea that Bambi is a nature documentary and never outgrew the idea. If breathing weren’t an autonomic function most of them would probably suffocate, not so much from forgetting to, but from not being able to figure out how.
2) The children don't need education. They might begin to think for themselves! They need only to be able to count to 500, read and write simple letters and learn to obey their
German liberal masters.
And the leopards and lions are so cute and cuddly when they are cubs! We shouldn't be hunting them.
A new SPELLING of “hypocrisy” also, it would seem. :)
It’s not “hypocrasy”. Most people disdain both. There are plenty of nonendangered critters running around out there that Blondie can shoot — stick with those.
An environmentalist isn’t a Conservative...a conservationist on the other hand knows that in order to properly maintain an ecosystem, proper and effective management of wildlife and fauna are critical...there is a huge difference between the two and if what you say is correct about the “tree huggers”, we have liberal, environmentalists masquerading as conservatives in our midst.
Ref Bambi. I especially like the talking rabbits. I have some that gather on my lawn and just chat away all night long at the buffet I supply for them. Little sob’s.
What part of game management is too complicated for you to understand?
You can have trophy hunters pay to hunt the animals that need to be culled and make money to run the management or you can pay professional non trophy hunters to hunt the animals that need to be culled.
Since they are going to be killed anyway why not make money off it?
I guess they don’t know you can’t grill it til you kill it. :-)
Rush always says the best way to conserve a species is to eat it.
Take a look at those trophies she is pictured with and tell me that all those needed to be culled —
I've got some nice trophy steaks in my refrigerator. I guess I could grill some tofu tomorrow and spare the lives of some cows, but I happen to enjoy steak from time to time. If she enjoys hunting animals, then she has as much right to her trophies as I do to my steaks.
What she chooses to legally hunt is none of your business.
You have no clue what does or does not need to be culled in those areas. And you likely never will.
Do you fish?
Are you hunting cows now???
I will not comply. D.O.L. Thus always to tyrants.
When she puts it on the internet it becomes anybody’s and everybody’s business.
Kendall Jones takes down a RINO
LOL! The caption on the pic just clicked. Is that christie in disguise? And, who’s footin’ the bill for the trips to the “dark continent” anyway? Texas Tech cheerleader and 1%’r?
No disguise. That’s Christie, all right.
The only places where Rhino populations are growing is where they can be legally hunted. That said, the trophy fee can be as high as 1/2 a million.
This is willful ignorance based purely on emotion. Ms. Jones is correct. Hunting places value on animals and habitat that would otherwise not exist. This is the best and only proven protection.
‘The first animal I ever shot was a White Rhino with a .416 Remington!!’ the teen writes on her Facebook page.
‘This is a conservation effort to assure [sic] that they never do become extinct,’ the teen from Cleburne, Texas posted to Facebook.
A lot of people seem to worship creation rather than the creator.
Gators and boars. Boars are a real issue right now. Ranchers are paying handsomely for hunters to come in and kill them.
He then gave slide show presentations of each trip to the local schools, explaining that the hunts are highly restrictive (licensing) and necessary to the local economies in terms of providing the meat to the local tribes.
As a side note, at the time of his second trip, his wife headed north to Alaska for a caribou hunt of her own.........
As another side note, my friend, his two brothers and one of his nephews were all eagle scouts......
I’m not qualified to make that call and neither are you.
Much as I love talking rabbits, Bambi and his mother (and the rest of the tribe) are the real pests in my neighborhood. I can't raise tomatoes because deer eat the plants. Plus they eat any expensive ornamentals that I have. I actually saw them at it one night, but they were gone before I could mount an appropriate response.
I have some friends who go on many of these licensed hunts. They pay to hunt, the animals are harvested and the meat is given to the local people, the hunters get a picture and sometimes the heads, but EVERYONE actually gains from these legal, licensed hunts.
These hunts are BENEFICIAL arrangements that the stupid tree-huggers don’t even understand! And apparently there are some Freepers who also don’t understand these basic tenants: pay to go on a hunt, kill an animal, harvest the food and byproducts for the locals, take a picture with the kill! More people survive and more of these animals survive, DUH!
LOL! Everyone gains except the recipient of the downrange slugs. Wonder what she was shooting. Other than the bow that appears in the pic with the lion. .500 Nitro? She’s gotta be tough to pop a few rounds with the power needed for a Hippo or Rhino. Not to mention you gotta be tough to make that friggin’ flight. Unless you’re in 1st or business. ;>}
If her school is a competitive cheerleading squad...this lady is in good physical shape, regardless of size. I doubt she has any difficulty handling weapons
Sounds like she was raised in a smart hunting family
Also, many of her detractors are probably infested with wealth envy...or think all rich gals supposed to be Kardashians
uh, kar-douche-ians? Useless mouth breathers all.
Actually the downrange recipient gains as well! In most of these cultures, there is nothing more sacred than an animal whose life is taken to feed humans. Most pray for the animal and those receiving the bountiful meal of that animal.
It is amazing, if a lion kills a gazelle and eats it, the tree-huggers could give a rat’s ass less. You think the lion prays over that gazelle? There is NOTHING more savage than life itself in the raw, literal dog-eat-dog world!
Think about the above for a second and then think about this: if a human hunter pays money (which helps the surrounding people), kills the gazelle (which helps feed the surrounding people), and then takes a picture with said kill, we are supposed to be upset? We are supposed to cry? Why? This is a controlled hunt, which means the locals will NOT ALLOW TOO MANY KILLS - that would kill their business, their food supply and their main attractions! DUH!
From the liberal point of view, what more could you want in life than to help those in your surroundings - you HELPED THE WHOLE VILLAGE!!!
Well, as far as feeding the locals the cry of “It’s for the children!” could ring out as well. The libs/prog/socialists/commies/dimokkkrats are just so, so, so, uh, conflicted. Yeah, that’s the word.
Have a great 4th of July. One of the few days in the year that Old Glory flies at my house. With the US Navy banner directly underneath. Thanks for your service.
