Two day ago I received an email from Amy S Quinn from TravelHacker, titled 25 Ultimate Vacations for Outdoorsmen. Usually I get suspicious when I read emails titled like this, especially containing “hacker” in parts of the address. I was just about to hit the delete button when I thought, “Maybe there is more to it, lets have a look.”
For ones I was glad that I opened a suspected spam mail. What I found was the following message:
We just posted an article "25 Ultimate Vacations for Outdoorsmen ". I thought I'd bring it to your attention just in case you think your readers would find it interesting.
Either way, thanks for your time!

I followed the link provided and was not sorry I did. A list of 25 hunting and fishing destinations in such exotic places like Mongolia and South Africa are offered with links to more detailed information. If this is to exotic for you how about a fly fishing trip to Ireland or a muzzleloader and archery elk hunt in Colorado. There is something for everybody on 25 Ultimate Vacations for Outdoorsmen.
It is ironic that the very first comment came from a rabbit animal rights lobbyist.
Next time you spam my blog’s email address with advertising, you should try reading the blog content first!
I DO NOT condone animal exploitation whatsoever! INCLUDING for the entertainment of trophy hunters on vacation!!!
What a God forsaken outrageous and greedy thing for a company like yours to be involved in!!! You all should be ashamed of the conscienceless worldview you’re promoting!!!
It is interesting to note that at first the writer says, “I do not condone” but then he goes on to say “What a God forsaken outrages, (bla, bla, bla). It’s contradictive but by no means uncommon with the animal rights types.
I wanted to post a comment on the travelHacker blog to tell Jeff, the writer of the above comment, what a hypocrite he was and perhaps he should get the facts of what good hunting does for wildlife and habitat conservation first before posting animal rights diatribe. Then I remembered that I wrote a column about The Economics of Hunting on the “My Stand” blog, so I sent him the link to that article instead via email that I got from his blog.
