Media treatment

Say a couple of college kids go out into the mountains and get lost for a day or so. It’s national news blared 24 hours a day. 25-30 hunters still stranded in snowstorm, not so much.

    There might be a presumption of competence, a bias that they know what they are doing and will survive this ordeal, among those choosing how to report this story. However, my prayers are with them.

    Hunters DO tend to sally forth with more than a windbreaker, a powerbar, and a pair of oakleys.

    It seems to me the ones requiring rescue or corpse removal tend to be hikers, climbers and tree huggers. Around here, the ways they seem to find to fall of cliffs or become hypothermic are never ending.

    Hunters have Wall tents, wood stoves and whiskey, and superior fieldcraft, and a tendency to reject darwin.

    That and, as the Joker said, it’s expected. Wilderness people in the wilderness? Not shocking. Suburban youths with trust funds in the wilderness? Everyone goes crazy!

    I saw a story on their status in yesterday’s local paper.

    Hunters kill shit, eat and survive.

    Build shelters and then start on the shopping mall if they are out there for over two days.

    They come out of the woods asking, “What the hell were you so worried about?”

    And is wasn’t their wives who called the rescue corp. They could care less. They know they will come home with a smile and dead stuff to eat. Along with the paycheck they earn every week.

    Best thing about this, is when the SHTF, we get to kill cityfied pussies coming to mooch off of our hunter/gatherer skills!!

    Er…kill things, eat…..

    Haven’t had to kill shit in a long time, and I don’t like to talk about that part of my life.
