Because Chris Pratt is an actual bad ass — and doesn’t just play one in the movies — he gets picked on. The sad thing is that people that don’t know any better (like how to use google), will believe these lies . . . Did Actor Chris Pratt Say He Likes Hunting Because He Enjoys Killing Animals?
A quote attributed to Pratt about the joys of hunting was created from bits and pieces of various unrelated interviews. Hunting is in my blood. My dad and uncles hunted. I didn’t hunt much as a teenager though I longed to. The thing inside me that drives me to go out and hunt is very animal. But the remorse, emotion and respect I feel, and the closeness to God that I feel when I’m out there, is my humanity. “My wife’s] like, ‘You’re not gonna eat it.’ I’m like, ‘Yeah, I guess you’re right. I just like to kill ’em. I’m sorry, but any time I kill something, I like to say a quick prayer — just cause we didn’t waste this guy.
This is not a real quote (although Pratt has said all of these things) but a mishmash of various interviews that Pratt has given over the years, rehashed and served up in meme form with context removed.
The first three sentences come from a real interview Pratt gave to camping and hunting enthusiast publication OutdoorLife.com in 2012. Here’s the full quote (the portion included in the meme has been highlighted):
Hunting is in my blood. My dad and uncles hunted. I didn’t hunt much as a teenager though I longed to. Since I played football and every weekend in the fall consisted of games or practice I was forced to listen to my friend’s hunting stories seething with jealousy. I became passionate about big game hunting when I moved to Utah to shoot the television series Everwood in 2003. I lived there for four years, had the time and money to really get into it and became absolutely obsessed.
A politician holding a snake? Oh, the irony . . . Francis Rooney joins Everglades python hunting trip, touts snake removal program
Rep. Francis Rooney traded in his slacks and suit coat for snake chaps and a headlamp as the first-term congressman from Naples accompanied python hunters on a nighttime excursion through the Everglades.
For 4½ hours Thursday, the group — peering into the black from atop pickup trucks — searched the brush just east of the Collier County line and north of U.S. 41 hoping to spot, catch and kill the invasive snakes, which experts say are threatening to upend the Southwest Florida ecosystem.
“I thought it went great,” Rooney, R-Naples, said Friday. “The hunters found five snakes, two big ones, 7 or 8 feet, two medium ones. And we had one little fella.”
Aww just look at that fwuffy, adorable, pwecious puppy! How can anyone harass one of these kind, gentle loving creatures. . . said no rational person ever . . . Wisconsin tradition – hunting bears with dogs – comes under attack by wolf advocates
A national watchdog group says Wisconsin bear hunters are harassing wolves with their dog packs — then claiming state compensation when their hounds are killed — and wants the federal government to launch a criminal investigation.
The practice amounts to “a state-sanctioned financial subsidy for hunters engaged in the criminal harassment” of wolves, an attorney for Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER) said in a letter to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
In 2016, Wisconsin paid out $99,400 for 41 dogs, a maximum of $2,500 each. The dogs were killed primarily in July and August, when hunters are in the woods training their packs to chase bears and wolf pups are first emerging from their dens. More than a dozen dogs were killed, despite “caution” warnings by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) that wolf packs with pups were active in the area, PEER said.
“It is harassment of an endangered species, committed by a relatively small number of hunters,” said Adam Carlesco, staff counsel for PEER. He said Wisconsin is the only state that reimburses dog owners in addition to farmers and livestock owners for wolf depredation.
Here’s one reptile I wouldn’t mind chasing after. Looks like it could be fun as long as I’m safely of a boat. With some firepower . . . 2017 Gator Hunting Season Opens In Alabama
14 gators were brought to the scales after night one of gator hunting season in the Southwest region of Alabama. The hunting season in the Southwest zone will go until August 13 at 6 a.m. It will reopen Friday, August 18 at 8 p.m. and go until Sunday, August 20 at 6 a.m.
Here’s a product I would like to try before hunting season. I prefer to carry my rifle in a hard case because I want my scope to be in the same condition when I take it out as when I put it in. But I would’nt mind trying an Air Amor Tech inflatable case. It’s pricey, but it can be carried as like a backpack. And since it floats, you’ll never have to worry about any tragic boating accidents.
If you enjoy hunting those slimy, creepy, long things from hell then you’ll want to watch this video. There are lots of great tips for how to prepare yourself so you don’t die. Just saying.
