Social Media—It Can Hurt or It Can Help

Social media can be a big asset to the world of hunters, but you've probably noticed it sometimes brings out the worst in us. Are you getting tired of that?

It's ironic that the very place we go to talk with like-minded people is the very place where we beat each other up. Do people in sewing groups or literature groups attack one another on Facebook like we do in hunting groups?

I don't know where this will end, but it's not a good thing. And if it doesn't stop we will all lose. It's time we all start acting like we're on the same team. We have common sense on our side, and logic, and science, and history, and more. I'm not saying we have to agree on everything. The good Lord knows we all come at the topics we discuss with different backgrounds and different priorities. But surely we can be more generous in our attitudes, kinder in the words we use, and more understanding of one another. Together we have a tremendous amount of power, so let's not use it to hurt our cause.
