The other night one of the top stories on all of my local news stations was a negative incident that involved a so-called hunter. Apparently, some poacher entered a piece of land and was hunting without permission. The landowner was an elderly woman who immediately confronted the trespasser and was assaulted. Luckily, the poor woman was not injured, but the media absolutely beat the story to death. It's amazing how quickly the mainstream media will jump on any negative aspect associated with hunting. The guy involved in this incident had no business being portrayed as a hunter. More than likely, he is the type that shoots deer out of season, spotlights from the road and damages private property. However, the media will routinely stereotype all of us by the actions of just a few. In reality, a true hunter despises poachers, probably more than the rest of our society that doesn't hunt. Sadly, it seems all of the positive aspects of hunting finds a way to slip through the cracks and are never exposed to the rest of the world.
