Jim Shockey’s Epic Take Down of Snowflake Hunter

I doubt there is anyone in the hunting world as respected as Jim Shockey. He is a man’s man and a great ambassador for hunting, who also has quite a way with words. So if you post rude and uninformed comments on his page you just might receive an epic smack down. just like this snow flake hunter.

Jim posted a picture of his family freezer filled with wild game. Some politically correct jealous snowflake decided it would be a good idea to call Jim out. He called Jim a braggart and was being egotistical.

“Yes, Jim has long arms always patting himself on the back. Don’t you just love a braggart. Congrats Jim I am sure you are proud of yourself.”

Jim decided to respond to this nearsighted snowflake’s jab with an devastating upper cut.

Hey Bryan E. B, this will be a long one. My apologies. First off, I’ve reposted your comment, but left out your last name because I don’t want you attacked on Social Media. Second, thanks for taking the time to post a comment. Third, I have to tell you that honestly, no guff, in a million years I never thought that posting a picture of our family’s full freezer would or could possibly be taken negatively.

My brain just doesn’t work like that.

When I see a picture of someone’s freezer full of wild game meat or a picture of anything that someone has posted where they are feeling joy about an accomplishment, I’m always happy for that person and their family and for the fact that the hunting message is being spread. It doesn’t even remotely occur to me to think that they are “braggarts” when they share photos of something they are happy about.

That said, because of your comment, I went back and looked at the picture of our family freezer and re-read the caption #huntersfamilieseatlikekings, but this time I put my figurative “Politically-Correct-Police” glasses on….and suddenly, looking through those glasses, it became blatantly obvious how you took that picture of a full freezer of wild game, as “bragging” or “ego-tripping” or as some kind of “holier-than-though” statement.

And I was deeply saddened.

Saddened that there are actually people who look through those “Politically-Correct-Police” glasses from the moment they wake up in the morning, until the moment they go to sleep at night. (If you don’t believe me, just watch the news on most major television networks). Day after day, week after week, year after year. Instead of feeling happiness at someone else’s happiness, these poor souls see “bad” when “good” was the intent.

They see “bad” because a person has something that they themselves and others do not have or cannot have. Instead of feeling happiness at someone who worked a lifetime to win a race, when they see that someone posing in a photo on the podium, holding their gold medal, they see a person who has achieved what they themselves and others cannot…and so see “bad.” They would rather there be no recognition for any achievements, but rather “participation” badges for all.

Which begs the question, why look at the picture of the person on the podium at all? If they only see “bad”, why not just change the channel or turn off their computer?

These people see one child getting an “A” on their report card as “bad” because another child received a “B.”

These people see another person who has a higher (or lower) education than they do…as “bad.” They see people with a home bigger (or smaller) than theirs…as “bad.” They see everyone who has more money than they do (or less)…as “bad.” Nicer clothes than they wear (or not)…”bad.” Prettier face (or not as pretty)…”bad.” Happy…”bad.”

And here is the really, really sadly part, these people who see the world through “Politically-Correct-Police” glasses….eventually start to see everyone that does anything, or that thinks differently than they do as “bad.”

Bryan E. B., right now, thank you God, the majority of people don’t see “bad” at someone else’s accomplishments, inheritances, lives, looks or possessions. Right now the majority of us are still happy to share the joy of people who dare to share their joy and happiness with the rest of us, but the world sure seems to be changing towards the “bad.”

Already, it seems the day has come when hunters can’t be happy for other hunters, can’t stick together united and strong…because one is a “traditional” archer as opposed to a “compound bow” archer, because one doesn’t wear camo and another does, because one doesn’t go on guided hunts and the other does or because one hunter hunts less (or more) than another hunter…..we’ve divided in so many special interest groups…and this makes me sad.

Bryan E. B. here is a question that worries the heck out of me…what happens to this world if we ever reach a day when more than 50{5c20afc010e65415aecac9ea1262ea64a0924a29c29fc9ad7cafd2eeb769a435} of the population sees the world through “Politically-Correct-Police” glasses? Will you and I be allowed to be hunters? Will we be able to freely express what we believe? Will anyone who doesn’t exactly fit into the “politically correct” mould…be allowed “…Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness?”

God help us if that day ever comes.

Jim was gracious to hide this guys name because I am sure hunters would have bombarded his social media account with all kinds of truth bombs.

What makes this even more of a surprise is that this snowflake is more then likely a hunter. This is based on the closing of Jim’s epic comment where he says, “Will you and I be allowed to be hunters? Will we be able to freely express what we believe? Will anyone who doesn’t exactly fit into the “politically correct” would…be allowed “…Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness?”
