    Angry Let's hope this is a hoax: Horse Hunting,pay to hunt and kill horses

    Just saw someone else posted about this too. I hope this is just a sick hoax http://texashorsehunts.blogspot.com/...-post.html?m=1

    From their homepage:
    If you’ve dreamed of big game horse hunting in Texas and are interested in a superior, top quality, exciting and successful horse hunting experience, join Texas Horse Hunt Expeditions,LLC and Master Guide Tom D. Welderman IV on your next horse hunt adventure.



    You’ll enjoy some of the most dynamic and beautiful wilderness in the world! We guide areas within National Wildlife Refuges and receive the finest guiding expertise, personal service and attention to detail found anywhere.
    I’m a guide because I love horse hunting, Texas, the outdoors and because I enjoy sharing these things with other humans who appreciate what horse hunts have to offer. Our goal, aside from helping you harvest a magnificent trophy horse, is to share with you this incredible state and all that it has to offer. When you leave one of our camps as a friend, we want you to take home fond lifetime memories of your horse hunt experience. The quality of your horse and your whole experience is my primary concern. We are not narcissistic; your hunt with us is not about us but about you and your horse. This is your horse hunt and we want to help fulfill all of your expectations.

    I was just about to come on here to post about this.

    Our horses are some of the finest equine specimens imported from all over the world or from local breeders. Many are organic and grass-fed. You will have the option of killing your horse traditionally (with a stick) by cross bow or by firearm of your choice. All horse meats will be processed at our facilites, so you will never get horse blood on your hands (unless otherwise desired) and that is A HORSE HUNT GUARANTEE!
    What the hell?

    It's gotta be a sick joke.

    Sadly, they don't post contact info. Gee! I'd love to hunt them...I mean with them.
    Some riders change their horse, they change their saddle, they change their teacher; they never change themselves.

    Don't think it is a joke. There is an on-line petition about this. (Although not sure what good a petition is going to do.)

    LOL, an online petition? I do believe everybody can come up with one of those.

    I think - really - you ladies have been had.
    Hunting with a sword? That has not been done in over a thousand years! (although I do wonder if they use on to kill ostritches like that...chase them down a chute, then lob the heads off with a katana....)

    but seriously!

    It's a hoax...beating a dead horse? I'm surprised anyone believed this for a second, it's a hilariously obvious joke.
    You jump in the saddle,
    Hold onto the bridle!
    Jump in the line!

    In the first big picture she has a MOOSE in her truck. She is wearing a Alaska 4-H shirt and trees like that don't grow in Texas.

    Someone has some sick humor.

    Glad it is a joke, although a VERY sick one. I didn't look that closely since I was quite horrified.

    I find it kind of funny because it's obviously made to stir up exactly what it stirred up.

    Did everyone miss the part where Michael J Fox apparently loves to beat horses to death with a stick? Come on now.

    I loved last photo, of the sleeping bay horse. And did you see the gif on this page? http://texashorsehunts.blogspot.co.nz/p/about.html Lol!

    Not to stir the pot more, but ... how is this hunting horses different to hunting deer or goats or pigs? Or are you all against hunting in general as well?

    Does Texas prohibit the slaughter of a horse for private consumption? Not being sold to the public?

    Well , as long as you pat the horse first before you shoot it, it is a positive experience for the horse, right ? I think that is what was posted with the crazy man shooting the horse on u-tube to protest slaughter bans....
