Re: Boone and Crockett's latest video on ethics ...
This is a portion of something I wrote elsewhere. It summarizes exactly what I think of B&C for dividing hunters, particularly in today's sociopolitical climate of ban anything not PC.
B&C trumpets the ethics of Teddy Roosevelt not shooting a chained bear because it wasn't 'sporting'. Yet they hypocritically demonize those who have the skill and tools to do so from a great distance; 100% preparation by the hunter; skills, equipment, and focused attention are necessary to accomplish the task. Their Goldilocks template for hunting and taking game only illuminates their hypocrisy and brings into focus their self-centered view of themselves.
