If you’re a hunter in the public eye, you’re going to face criticism for doing what you love. Whether it’s criticism stemming from ignorance (how do they think their ancestors managed to survive) or purely from hate, the internet has no shortage of hate filled ramblings directed at hunters.

Hey everyone! Is anyone interested in hunting for ibex in Spain? I have a great deal for november/december as my outfitter there has had a last minute cancelation for 2-3 hunters. I have been on this hunt myself and can't say enough about it! Great food and accommodation, stunning terrain, and best of all, HUGE ibex!!!! Not to mention one of the best outfitters I've ever had the pleasure of hunting with! Private message me if interested. I'm so bummed that my schedule won't allow for me to go, or I'd be on the first plane back out there!
Jacine Jadresko of Victoria, British Columbia, knows about the negative side of living the life of a hunter in the spotlight all to well. Jadresko, who goes by the username the “Inked Huntress,” gets over 200 death threats a day. These people have even threatened to kill her child.
“Things so vile as people telling me they’re going to kidnap my son and I and they’re gonna skin him alive and hang him from a tree,” says Jadresko.
However people justify hating a hunter by threatening to kill them and their kids makes no sense to us at all – but people are willing to say just about anything behind the ‘safety’ of a keyboard.
“Hunting is not about killing for me, I have a huge respect for each species that I hunt and each animal that I harvest and they’re each very special to me,” she says.
What exactly does Jadresko have to say to all her haters out there?
“The more you hate, the more I kill,” she wrote on her Instagram account.
There you have it all you anti-hunting, angry internet trolls, be nicer to her online and you just might save an animal.
