Iím a girl, and I hunt

In Roman mythology, the master of the hunt was the goddess Diana. She was praised for her strength, athletic grace, beauty, and hunting skills.

In Freemasonry, she was a symbol of sensibility and imagination, of poets and artists. Shrines were erected in her honor; stags followed her wherever she went; she ruled the forest and the moon.

I like to think that Diana’s influence has never entirely waned, that hunting was never just about men getting together in the woods. Hunting is for all of us, an extension of our being both humans and animals—our first work and craft, one of our original instincts.

Today I am entirely different than the girl and chef who set out four years ago to learn how to hunt a turkey. There are the obvious differences, such as the fact that I can shoot a deer through the heart without batting an eye, and then promptly take out the innards on the forest floor with only a pocketknife and my bare hands.

I'm judging her by the statements she's made.

No. You are judging her by the statements you think she made by inference of what she didn’t say. Big difference.

First off, it's bearing, not baring. (I can play that game too) Baring is "showing your backside".

And you think that wasn’t intentional on my part?

Whatever. Reply as you will. It's obvious what you're about.

There you go again, “baring” witness and judgment and only going to prove what an ass you really are.

I won't be replying back.

Sigh. I’m crushed. : ),
