This is the bumper of my friend Teddy Moritz, who has driven around New Jersey for 20 years with this creed on her various trucks and cars.
She says no one has ever flipped her off or said an unkind word about it.
And this is New Jersey.
Think about that for a moment.
In 20 years, no vehicle vandalism, no flipped fingers, no harassment.
And yet, to hear some folks say it, we are supposed to be cringing cowards living in fear of "the antis".
Not me, and not Teddy!
In fact, as I have noted before, most of those stoking the fear of "the antis" do not hunt themselves, and many are in such poor physical shape, and with such a tenuous grasp on wild places and wild life, it can be said they are incapable of hunting.
What they are capable of, however, is stoking the fires of paranoia to raise cash and manipulate people into a stampede.
How do you make a stampede? Well first, you make a herd, and then you make a lot of noise and maybe flap some blankets, and then....
It's an added benefit that those who seek to manipulate us all, can use this contrived fear of "the antis" as their personal (and very convenient) reason to never post a picture of themselves or their dogs with quarry
They hunt a lot, they will tell you, but NO there are no pictures of them with real game and real dogs in the field.
"Never thought to bring a camera."
And in the next 10 years, there will still be no pictures, because they have still never thought to bring a camera.
For these people, there's another sticker often seen on the bumpers of those who hunt their own dogs: "When the tailgate drops, the bullshit stops".
