Today’s bonus code is JERKY and here’s why:
Provincial Hunting Day has been declared been declared in Alberta. Can’t believe it didn’t already exist. It’s happening Sept 22nd which doesn’t give you a lot of time to go out and get a gun (legally) to celebrate Provincial Hunting Day. Guess I’ll have to use my steak knife.
It is interesting to see cultural and social differences around the world. For example, in Russia they have declared Make-a-baby Day to encourage a population boom while we here in Alberta have declared Kill-an-animal Day. Remind me again, is it Albertans or Russians who are lovingly referred to as ‘rednecks’? I’m not judging, just observing.
I have nothing against hunting and living off the land. However, I think calling it a sport is a joke. Yes, it takes skill to track an animal and aim a rifle and hit your intended target – I happily acknowledge that. But until you give the animal a weapon and make it an even playing field can you really call it a sport. I suppose it’s how you defind the word. For me, a sport is an activity that all participants can enjoy win or lose. Somehow, if moose and deer could talk, I don’t think they’d saying running away from bullet that can snuff their existance is “fun.”
Again, nothing wrong with hunting. In fact, if you score an animal on the Sept 22nd and wanna pass some jerky my way I’m all over it.
