People are offended. Snowflakes don't know where food comes from. Happy Birthday Mama!

One follower responded to Wentz’s tweet saying in part, “As a friend I wanted to quickly highlight that a man in your influential position might cause offence (sic) through the posting of your first picture. I support its sentiment however the context and content of the pic could offend.”

Wentz then shared that user’s tweet and included his response to the user’s claim the photo could be offensive.

“Appreciate that, but offensive and controversial? Two of the main things I tweet about are Jesus and hunting. That’s what I’m passionate about and that won’t ever change! When you love something, you talk about it! Stay convicted about it and don’t worry what others think!” Wentz wrote.

Yeah, but the real question is, Did he teach Mama to kneel when she hears the national anthem? (or growl even?)

Looks like he's raised a pretty good "ratter".

Yep! He must have been using a fully automatic .410 gauge assault weapon. Needs to be banned!

Probably.

Not as meaty as farm raised geese but they do have a good flavor.

Carson Wentz should leave the NFL.
He is a good man, good men don’t belong in the NFL anymore.

Good Dog!

Now, are those geese any good to eat? Never had any. Where I am from, they are like huge rats.

I don’t do Facebook or twitter. Nobody’s business what it do for $h!t$ and giggles. And I will not make my family a target for buttwads like those who are making this goose hunt a big deal.

My son shot his first deer a decade ago. He sent a picture to my brother. Unfortunately my brother decided to put it on his Facebook page. I got him on the phone and made him take it down immediately.

They are so numerous here, year-round, that the college my kids attend (Central Piedmont Community College) sells t-shirts that say “CPCC: Got geese?”

it could be any of these limp wristed snowflake leftards. Carson should have gone xtreme by posting the dog with an AR15 while wearing a MAGA hat so these pukes could get a heart attack.

We have one of the *BEST* water dogs on the planet. And the harvested birds are used for food.

Excellent. This guy's got guts.

I just wish he didn't play for the Eagles. I don't like the Eagles...

It is almost certainly a photo of the entire group of hunter’s geese - they do put limits on geese. It IS all food.

I have old photos of my grandfather and dad from pheasant hunting trips. They would hunt with a large group of guys lined up and walking the corn rows. I got to go a few times as a kid and stand at the end of the fields so the birds would flush up at the last minute.

Old cars from the 40’s with ropes strung out and maybe 40 birds strung up and hanging from the side of the car. I’m guessing that was just for display - and not for transportation.

The rest of the country will not understand North Dakota.

Cool!

They’re nasty birds that shit all over everything and transmit diseases and parasites. I have not noticed a shortage of them in northern Ohio. Thin them out imo.
