    Not sure what you mean by “distasteful”here but, the luggage rack is due to the fact he does not want to lay the deer inside the vehicle. Not only is that the way they are transported in TX, but all over the United States. Looks like there are 2 deer on the hitch-haul and probably 2 hunters in the vehicle. If the deer were harvested legally, then I am not sure about the oddity you are referring to? the purpose of quartering the game is usually when you are in the field and have to get the animal back to the base camp (on foot)or if you plan on being in the field after that and skin and quarter and ice down in coolers(to then be transported to the processor). Your explanation of “Meat Hunt” is misrepresented and distasteful in itself. Maybe you should try explaining to your 8 year old in a tasteful way about the conservation/management behind the harvesting of any wildlife! By the way…trying to keep up with a vehicle on the interstate and snapping pictures does not seem to be in the best interest of safety for you or your 8 year old daughter! Just my 2 cents.

    Im with ya on this one Dennis, thats the way its done down here in TX and if you don’t like it then move to California where you can save all the trees you want. And yes culling or “meat hunt” like the guy said is good for the area. It keeps the population of Deer managable as well as good quality for the other ones to thrive.

    I transport my deer this way all the time. I usually cover the animal with a smaller blanket I always keep in back of my SUV. This keeps the treehuggers (while driving their little kids) from giving me a one fingered salute. This year was different. My deer was a 5.5 year or older, 155 class 10 pointer, w/ a 45 inch chest. He stuck out both sides of the blanket. The rack was very visible, but I hid the field-dressed slit with the blanket. There are several stoplights between my hunting area and my home. I got many, many thumbs up on the way home, and one mom who rolled down her window and asked if I was trying to keep the deer warm. Really!!

      Well, I guess if it was cold enough outside it might be OK. Can you imagine though, if the temperature rose above 45?

    There’s nothing wrong with this. There’s also nothing wrong with hunting for meat. My family has been living off the two doe I harvested around Thanksgiving. That old boy needs to move back up north

    I don’t suppose the author thought that perhaps the “dufus” driving was handicapped in some way? My uncle is handicapped, but still loves to get into the woods when he can. He has limited ability to man-handle deer, (though he is damn good with his bow/rifle), and he uses a hitch-n-haul to transport his harvest. While you are busy driving distractedly, taking pictures, and giving false descriptions to you child (who would die with you in the fire crash you are inviting) you might want to attempt to get the full story before you start slinging mud and your unwanted, narrow minded opinion around the web…

    Funny enough – this is exactly how I brought my 4×4 Muley home this year – with the only exception being that I had wrapped the head in a mover’s blanket. My 6 year old and I were eating breakfast at BK waiting on the taxidermist to open, and a guy came in and asked: “Is that your deer out there?” I told him it was and he said,”Why do you have it all coveed up like that – I’d be driving up and down main street with that one out for everyone to see.” It was in that moment that I realized how right my decision to move to Montana was.

    I live in SD and we do that all the time. I don’t see what is wrong with it. Ya they should open up a season on tree huggers or move them all to California or something. I shot an elk this year and the son of a gun was sticking out the bed of my pickup. I suppose that guy has a problem with that too. What an idiot.

    Uh….wow. Is there something “wrong” with hunting for meat? Isn’t that the most important point of hunting? For food? Sure, getting meat at the grocery store is easier but for some, it’s getting quite expensive. Between climbing gas and grocery prices, bullets are cheaper than driving to the store to pay for food someone else shot. Mmmmm….Bambi….

    Beautiful picture. Thanks to the op for showing us some successful hunters. I’ll bet you never had meat without steroids and growth hormones. Very healthy, natural, organic food. Bet you also didn’t know that it is mentioned in the Bible that God told us to eat animals.

    Leave the pictures up but please edit (totally delete) everything you wrote.

    Though I quit hunting when a close relative passed away (hunting was never my forte’), I love to target practice and I support the right of those who hunt. I was raised with the philosophy of the thrill/sportsmanship is in the hunt, and you do not kill something just for the sake of killing it…like for a “trophy”!

    Venison has fed mankind since we became meat eaters. I have far more respect for someone who goes on a so called “meat hunt”(?) than an alleged hunter who is seeking a trophy buck at a feeding station.

    Side note: As a photographer, I’d love to know what you were wearing that covered your scent and visibility so well that a “dumb” doe was close enough for you to poke it with your rifle. Also, why would anyone scare away a doe since does attract bucks; not to mention, when one deer takes off, the others are are usually right behind it.

    As others have said, you risked the lives of others with your distracted driving. When your child has questions about hunting, you should answer them, not try to be an amateur paparazzi. Last, but definitely not least, if you indeed have firearms in the house, enroll your 8 year old in a children’s firearm safety class (NRA Eddie Eagle, for example). From your posted photos and comments, you are not the one who should teach her about weaponry.
