    Offensive ad...

    Check out the Wild Sheep Raffles advertisment in the latest issue of BC Outdoors magazine (p.17).
    Normally I have absolutely no problem with pictures of dead animals... This one, however, was quite offensive and in poor taste!
    I can just imagine what a non-hunter or anti-hunter would think of this photo. I am surprised that the BCWF sanctioned the use of this photo in the BCWF section of the magazine. And how about the Wild Sheep Society?

    Personally don't think its offensive in any way and not in poor taste - its a friggin' hunting magazine ffs! There's no guts or gruesomeness at all. I wonder just how many anti's or non-hunters subscribe to BC Outdoors anyway.

    Could only ever dream of harvesting a 9 pointer. Congrats to those lucky gents

    I see nothing wrong with that picture at all.
    Nothing is like climbing a mountain, and then feeling like you are at the top of the world.

    Some people would find it offensive just because there isnít a person of colour in the photo...or is that what youíre getting at?

    Letís just say they are Mťtis and all will be forgiven.
    You find it offensive, but I find it funny... Thatís why Iím happier than you.

    If that is offensive then all the supermarket ads showing slabs of meat should be considered offensive.
