Seth Feroce responds to bear hunt backlash.
Outspoken bodybuilder Seth Feroce responds to the backlash he’s received after posting about his recent bear hunt. The veteran bodybuilder and rugged outdoorsman addressed the followers who denounced his recent hunt.
Not everyone is going to agree with people’s methods of food consumption. We’ve all seen different movements pop up over the last several years dictating the best ways and approaches to eating. Some have denounced the consumption of meat as well as hunting. That brings us to Seth Feroce.
It appears that brash and outspoken bodybuilder Seth Feroce has come under fire by his own fans. The controversial bodybuilder. Recently posted a picture of himself on social media after hunting a bear much to the ire of many of his followers. In the picture you can see Feroce holding up the bear’s paw in triumph. This display apparently angered many people and now for Feroce is suffering the backlash.
But Seth Feroce is not one to take things lying down. While he may be dealing with the backlash, Feroce is not backing down. In fact, the bodybuilder doubled down, posting another series of photos highlighting the recent hunt. Feroce would go on to explain that he was hunting the animal, not for sport, but to utilize it for food. As such, Feroce made it a point to call out those in his audience who eat meat upset with this display. The bodybuilder essentially called them hypocritical for criticizing his hunt when they do the very same without the dirty work involved.
MY FIRST BIG GAME ANIMAL.
BLACK BEAR IN IDAHO
THIS WAS A BUCKET LIST ITEM FOR ME.
SOMETHING I DREAMED OF DOING FOR YEARS.
TO HUNT, KILL, SKIN, QUARTER, PACK OUT AND EAT!
I HAVE ALWAYS LOVED WATCHING NATURE SHOWS, HUNTING SHOWS, AND RECENTLY OVER THE PAST YEAR HUNTING SHOWS ARE ALL I WATCHED.
AND I WANTED TO MAKE HUNTING AND HARVESTING PART OF MY LIFE.
I WANTED THE FEELINGS OF IT ALL.
KILLING AN ANIMAL. SKINNING IT. CUTTING THE MEAT OFF THE BODY. PACKING IT OUT ON MY BACK. EATING THE MEAT BACK AT CAMP WITH MY FRIENDS. AND TALKING ABOUT THE EXPERIENCE, THE FEELINGS AND EMOTIONS AND HOW BEAUTIFUL NATURE IS.
THEN BRING HOME THAT MEAT TO FEED MY FAMILY.
THE MEAT THAT I KILLED, THAT I CUT UP, THAT I HARVESTED, AND PACKED OUT OF THE MOUNTAINS.
SO MY FRIEND @BEYOND_THE_BACKCOUNTRY BROUGHT ME OUT TO EXPERIENCE HIS PART OF THE WEST!
AND MAKE IT HAPPEN!
AND IT DID.
I KILLED A LARGE BLACK BEAR. SKINNED IT. QUARTERED IT. PACKED IT OUT OFF A MOUNTAIN AND ATE IT AT CAMP WITH MY FRIENDS.
AND I WILL BE BRINGING HOME THE MEAT FOR MY FAMILY.
I AM PROUD OF THIS!
AND I KNOW THAT SOME OUT THERE MAY NOT LIKE THIS.
AND THAT’S OK.
MAYBE SOME JUST NEED SOME EDUCATION AND A LITTLE PERSPECTIVE.
SO HERE IS A SMALL PIECE.
BLACK BEARS ARE NOT ENDANGERED, THEY ARE HEAVILY HUNTED IN THE WEST.
THEY NEED TO BE MANAGED. CONTROLLING THE POPULATION IS IMPORTANT FOR ALL THE OTHER ANIMALS HUNTED, ELK, DEER, ETC.
BLACK BEARS AND OTHER PREDATORS WILL KILL THE POPULATION OF ELK, DEER, AND OTHER ANIMALS. IN FACT MALE BEARS WILL KILL BEAR CUBS OF THE FEMALES JUST SO THEY CAN MATE WITH THEM. WILD!
NATURE IS INTENSE.
SO HUNTERS HELP CONTROL THIS, BY HUNTING THEM, SO THAT WE CAN HUNT AND HARVEST THOSE OTHER ANIMALS.
AND ALSO, BEARS ARE DELICIOUS! YOU CAN EAT THEM.
BEAR BACK STRAP ON THE MOUNTAIN WAS AWESOME.
I WILL BE MAKING BEAR SAUSAGE AND SOME BEAR BURGER FROM THE REST OF MY MEAT.
THE FAT WILL BE RENDERED DOWN TO COOK WITH. BEAR TALLOW!
THIS IS THE PINNACLE OF QUALITY.
I LOVED EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS!
THIS IS WHAT WE HUMANS HAVE DONE FOREVER AND IT WILL CONTINUE TO BE A BIG PART OF MY LIFE.
Clearly Seth Feroce is passionate about hunting and wouldn’t frivolously hunt any animal that crossed his path. While there may be those out there who are opposed to hunting animals for food, if you partake in eating meat or the carnivore diet yourself then it’s a bit of a moot point. Feroce plans on using all the parts of the bear and not wasting it. That shows that he at least respects the animal enough to utilize it in a proper way.
What do you think of Seth Feroce and his recent bear hunt?
