After being bullied on social media, a fellow hunter and outdoorsman took her own life. The abrupt death of this young lady, only 27, didn’t soften the hearts of those attacking her for her outdoors pursuits. The verbal assaults on her social media pages continued, with the anti-hunters celebrating her death. Her social media pages have since been taken down.
Capitan was from Catalonia, Spain, but had lived in Huesca for the last three years.
The Daily Mail reports that 27-year-old Capitan gained fame among outdoorsmen and women by “sharing her hunting tactics,” photos, and stories of her daily life.
Some animal rights proponents reacted to the suicide by applauding Capitan’s death. One person commented, “You have done a favour to humanity! Bye Bye,” while another said, “She was so bitter that she had to pay her hate killing innocent animals, thank God she killed herself, the only good thing she did lately.”
You can’t fix stupid and reasoning with such ignorant hatred is pointless. So sad for the family of this woman that have to mourn the death of their daughter while others praise it.
Compared to the US these fines don’t seem harsh enough.
Court heard that on Oct. 19, 2016, Bradley Morris of Listowel and Evan Pleasance of Durham [Canada] became aware of a moose that was near Stisted Road, in Sprucedale.
They obtained shotguns, located the moose, then shot and killed it. Neither man had a licence to hunt moose. Lorne Hack of Sprucedale assisted with removing the moose from the bush and transported it to the residence of Kenneth Leeder of Emsdale, where the moose was butchered . . .
Morris and Pleasance pleaded guilty and were each fined $2,000 for hunting moose without a licence and $1,500 for making a false statement to a conservation officer. In addition, they received a two-year hunting suspension.
Hack pleaded guilty and was fined $1,000 for possessing unlawfully-killed wildlife and $500 for transporting unlawfully-killed wildlife. Leeder pleaded guilty and was fined $1,000 for possessing unlawfully-killed wildlife
The headline reads “Police kills an moose with a shotgun in the street.” This moose most likely was involved in a B&E (breaking and entering) or perhaps a D&D (Drunk and disorderly). I dunno, seems fishy to me. I want to see the body cam video to ensure the Moose’s rights weren’t violated. (Click here for a list of police jargon)
You really have to trust the person with whom you hunt. You may think you know them to be a safe, cautious and responsible hunter — and then be shocked to learn you don’t know them at all when they’re full of adrenaline.
I’ve seen grown men fight over who should take a shot at an animal that popped up suddenly during a hunt. Hunting on unknown low fence ranches, with thousands of acres, in the middle of nowhere AND with strangers maybe not the best idea, but boy is it fun!
Authorities were called to Springs Rd, Parawa, almost 40km west of Victor Harbor. at 3.45pm on Sunday amid reports a man had received a “serious wound to the head”.
Detectives are investigating how the man came to suffer “life-threatening” gunshot wounds but the man had been at an area of native forest popular with deer hunters.
Police believe the incident is not suspicious and are treating the shooting as an “accident”.
The man, who has not been named, is in a critical condition in the Flinders Medical Centre after he was flown from the Fleurieu Peninsula.
The fact that Donald Trump Jr.’s a trophy hunter doesn’t endear him to conservationists. Well, the ones too ignorant to realize that hunting in all its legal forms protects both land and wildlife. And the lands and wildlife of people living in developing countries. In this, the British press are particularly stupid.
Donald Trump Jr, the president’s eldest son, goes hunting with his bow most weekends and is referred to by his friends as the “Fifth Avenue redneck.” He has targeted elk and mule deer at home as well as “15 or 16 species” in Africa, where he has been pictured grasping a severed elephant’s tail and holding a dead leopard with his brother, Eric.
Last year, Donald Trump Jnr said the US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) “should be encouraging American hunters legally and ethically hunting abroad, not hindering them.” He also called for wolves to be culled in the US west, claiming they deprive hunters of moose.
Junior is seemingly attempting to fashion a new type of “hunter” – invoking the spirit of Roosevelt while posing with big game body parts and viewing public lands as sites for shooting and mining and not much else.
“We have to make sure we’re heard,” he told Petersen’s Hunting. “Lately, we’ve been a forgotten group. I want to change that now and forever.
“And we are going to do whatever we can to make sure that any kind of Trump presidency is going to be the best since Theodore Roosevelt for outdoorsmen, for hunters, for our public lands, and for this country as it relates to anything in the great outdoors.”
Bully for Donny Jr.!.
Hunters in Africa have to eat to survive. The conditions and their tools aren’t the best. Not to mention the heat which accelerates decomposition.
Above we see a hunter cleaning an elephant. I can’t even imagine how long that takes. They’re using bare hands and dirty tools and I’m sure they don’t have deep freezers and orca coolers back at home.
Truth be told, any meal, even an infected one, is better than nothing in some parts of Africa.
The researchers found that hunting techniques used in the [African] villages included communal and individual hunts. Hunters relied on nets, snares, traps, guns, and dogs.
Descriptions of communal hunts included the ways children were involved, as well as how women played a role, for example helping to flush pray into nets, for instance. Boys often started hunting both alone and in groups from around age 7, and were motivated to do so due to pressure from their family and lack of access to other food, the researchers found.
Animal carcasses were always handled with bare hands, and both men, women and children were all involved in preparing and cooking meat, over a fire. Reasons for hunting were complex, and included a need for food, crop protection, income, and social importance.
With all the do-gooders in the world helping to bring clean water, electricity, communications and schools to the developing world, wouldn’t it be great if there was a group helping hunters to know how to clean their kills, supplying them with the proper equipment?
Don’t get me wrong: I’m pretty sure native Africans could out-hunt any westerner with their bare hands. However, due to their circumstances they have to clean and preserve their meat without modern technology.
Any thoughts on how you could preserve and clean meat in the wild without the aid of technology and basic luxuries like clean water? If anyone reading this with the means to carry out such a plan is interested, hit me up below.

The 800-square-foot space now houses 40 whitetail shoulder mounts, 12 mule deer, and four African animals. Each sparks a memory and tells a story. Most of the mounts were done at Randolph’s Taxidermy. Fred Randolph estimates his work on the collection represents about $35,000.
Marcos Garcia, a longtime antler scorer who measured all of Vela’s deer, but is not certified by Boone & Crockett, estimates the whitetail collection alone represents roughly 6,000 antler inches. If you do the math, you’ll notice these are not all 170-200 class bucks.
This is not important to Vela. And to believe it should be, misses the point of this heritage collection.
