After getting a lot of backlash over her latest kill, a famous hunter decided to respond with her own strong statement.
Eva Shockey, popular in her own right as a hunter, shares the love of the hunt with her father Jim Shockey of TV programs “Jim Shockey’s Hunting Adventures” and “Uncharted.”
The Blaze reports that Eva’s Facebook profile states she tries to “balance hunting, femininity and family into what I consider to be the best lifestyle in the world” and includes a bible verse — Proverbs 31:25: “She is clothed with strength and dignity and she laughs without fear of the future.”
On a recent bear hunting trip in North Carolina, Eva took down a black bear, as did her father.
Eva shared pictures of the successful hunt on her Facebook page, and the responses she received were mixed.
One in particular struck a chord with Eva and she responded with the following:
“An anti-hunter just told me, and I quote, to "kill that little worthless dog you have instead" of the bear I just hunted in NC. Apparently hunting a bear, eating/donating all of the meat and putting money towards conservation is a bad thing, but killing my puppy is ok. If this logic isn't totally insane, I don't know what is.”
Her post received more than 23,000 likes and was shared 535 times.
Many respondents to the post included images against anti-hunters. One in particular featured a picture of a butcher’s meat display with the caption, “ANTI-HUNTERS: Don’t PAY others to kill for you…and then judge hunters because they have the courage to provide for themselves.”
