A young girl in Ohio was recently shamed at school for shooting a deer

Congrats on an awesome buck young lady!

“Let me lay it out for you: A 9-year-old girl from northeast Ohio, Domonique Yatsko, was lucky enough on the youth weekend to harvest a really nice buck.

She tagged the deer where it lay and checked all the boxes to make it a legal kill.

It was her first deer. Now, the family has a tradition that when one of its members takes his or her first deer, they celebrate the occassion, as well they should. In this case, that included getting a sweatshirt made with Domonique’s photo on it with the cleaned-up buck. No blood, no nothing to offend the senses, so to speak.

This is where the story takes a turn: Domonique proudly wore her sweatshirt to school soon after and was told by her teacher that “killing animals is not what we do.” Shaming, in other words. The way her mother tells it, Domonique was so shamed by the teacher and ridiculed by others in the school that she threw the sweatshirt in the trash as soon as she came home.

“We’re a farming family, and (ancestors) have lived in this area since 1827,” said Domonique’s mother, Heidi. “So, she’s used to raising livestock, planting crops, and planting fields for wildlife as well as hunting.”

Heidi took up the matter with school officials, hoping to get an apology for a perfectly legal activity enjoyed by thousands of Ohioans. Nothing more. One was not forthcoming, however.

“The principal’s quote to me was ‘we don’t have dead animals in school,’” Heidi said. “So, I asked her what they serve in the cafeteria?”

It is not lost on me that Domonique shot her deer on Nov. 20 – during the statewide youth season that is specifically geared by the DNR Division of Wildlife for just this sort of activity.

“She scouted the deer,” Heidi said. “She didn’t just shoot the first thing she saw. She practiced. She did everything right.”

Heidi and her kin all grew up as hunters, and weren’t afforded the opportunity of a special youth season tailored just for that purpose.

“There’s so many good opportunities out there now,” Heidi said. “We do the whitetail dinners for the youths, and she’s been involved in all of that.”

This was Domonique’s first year of hunting, and hopefully not her last. Shame on the adults in this situation for being so unenlightened. But, it’s just a reminder of a battle that we all face daily from the opposition that would love to put us all out of business.”

This is not cool. This kind of thing has to stop! Congrats on an awesome buck young lady! Keep it up! – Hunters Against PETA

Yes, that could definitely be the case here. Eat more meat, it might help.

Metallica’s James Hetfield Still Loves To Hunt – Moves To Colorado

Tuesday, December 20th, 2016

James Hetfield was recently on Joe Rogan’s podcast, ‘The Joe Rogan Experience” and talked about many things including hunting and moving from California to Colorado to avoid the “elitists.”

“The 53-year-old Hetfield, who is a member of the National Rifle Association and an avid hunter, added that he increasingly felt unwelcome in a community where hunting was being frowned upon as a cruel and unnecessary act. He said: “It’s something I felt. I probably made it up in my head a little bit. ‘Cause I’m pretty good at that. I’m pretty creative, and I can start fights with myself in my head all the time. But there was. There was just a… I don’t know… I felt that there was an elitist attitude there — that if you weren’t their way politically, their way environmentally, all of that, that you were looked down upon. I think in Colorado, everyone is very natural; people are not playing some game, they’re not posturing. They’re very into, ‘Oh, you like doing that? Cool. How’s that go? How’re you doing with that?’ And they’re less obsessed with stopping what you’re doing and more enjoying what they’re doing.”

He went on to say: “For me, going out, whether it’s planting my own vegetables, having my own beehives, getting our own honey, harvesting my own meat on the ranch, that’s what I love doing. I love sustaining my family with as organic as possible. I respect people that don’t want the blood; they don’t want all that scene. They would rather see their meat, or whatever it is, show up in a nice cellophane package and it’s handed to them; they don’t wanna know how it got there. I respect that. My kids are like that — they don’t wanna see it going on. But I wanna be as close to the earth, I wanna be as part of it as possible. I wanna be part of every bit of it and respect it.”
