    NHL player Clayton Stoner went hunting, and he not only did he get his target, he cut its freaking head off!

    The only reason this made news was because the dude tweeted that picture, and now all those PETA types are going nuts.

    Stoner did nothing illegal, its reported he had a hunting permit, weapons were clean, everything was legit.

    The only thing that kinda bothers me is after he decapitated the bear, he skinned it and left the body in the forest. I'm no tree hugging hippie or anything, but if you're out killing animals, at least eat the poor thing.

    Well this will end up in Taboo.


    Let's be clear. It is just a small minority of PETA and Animal Defense league activists who are upset about this. These activists think you are just as barbaric as Stoner because you eat meat. Most people do not care.


    You ever eaten bear? :puke:Freaking awful meat. Really greasy. Also very very tough. Bears have their weird cross grain thing going on with their muscles which is what makes them so powerful. Also makes the meat tough as hell.

    Your poll options are bad.

    I don't mind hunting for food/sport but only trophy hunting bothers me.
    It is so stupid. Yay you killed an apex predator from 200 yards away with a high powered rifle. Here is a cookie. Your target is massive and most likely not moving. You must be ****ing Hawkeye.

    I don't mind people killing most things but crap like this is a waste.

    If he really wants to hunt an apex predator... he should hunt a man.


    BUT HE WON'T. Puss.

    Hey, he skinned it. Guess he's selling the fur or using it himself.

    He did some carnivores out there in the wilderness a favor.

    The tags Stoner was using are issued for population management. IE, there are too many grizzly bears in some parts of British Columbia and the government issues these tags to lower the population. It is done with a lot of species which are overpopulated.

    Should we just talk about not paying for TV? That seems about all you care about.

    I don't have an issue with him killing the bear or skinning it but I do find the picture to be in poor taste.
