Commonly Heard Hunting Myths

Hunting is a very controversial topic in some circles. Those who are opposed to the idea of hunting often try to spread myths about it in an effort to convince others not to hunt. These myths obviously do not portray hunting in a positive light at all, and they turn some people off from hunting altogether. Let’s identify some of the most common myths about hunting and talk about why they’re simply not true.

Myth 1: All hunters have an unfair advantage over the animals they’re hunting.

There are some people who are under the impression that those who hunt sit up in trees all day and pick off defenseless animals from hundreds of yards away. But more often than not, hunters have to work a lot harder than that to outsmart animals while hunting. There is a lot of strategy that goes into hunting elk, boars, and other intelligent creatures.

Myth 2: All hunters hate animals.

In order to hunt down animals and kill them, some people believe that hunters must hate animals. But this really couldn’t be any further from the truth! Just about every hunter has a very deep respect for the animals that they hunt. They appreciate the food that they provide for their families, and they take part in conservation efforts to make sure there are more than enough animals to go around for future generations.

Myth 3: All hunters are men.

When you see hunters on TV or in print advertisements, they’re often portrayed by men. As a result, there is a perception that most hunters are men. But there are millions of women who hunt throughout the country. In fact, approximately 20 to 25 percent of all hunters are women. They make up a larger percentage of the hunting population than some people would lead you to believe.
