Not really.  They're easy to spot pretentious douchebags who, when you see them, you immediately want to punch in the face.  Then again, I'm 50 so I see things differnt.

The only people I ever see using the word "hipster" are the intellectually and/or physically lazy.

It seems to roughly translate to "some people are putting effort into something that I don't do/like so I am going to apply a derogatory label to them".

It's 100% artisan, do-it-yourself, free of chemicals and feeds, historically relevant, blue-collar authentic, and you have to purchase tickets to do it.

All hunters are hipsters.  They just don't know it.

He doesn't believe in climate change, either. I wouldn't sweat it.

Fail.

A hipster is one who undertakes a recreational activity primarily *for effect*... for the attention from others.

There are secondary goals too, but you're a hipster if your primary goal is the audience.

Casual dress? Hipster. Tailored suite? Hipster. Fashionable clothes? Hipster. Utilitarian workman's clothing? Hipster. Vegetarianism and hunting, both hipster. Bicycles, motorcycles, vintage scooters, cars, not having a car, video games, rejecting video games, donuts, paleo, hatchets, rocking chairs, expensive handcrafted wooden pencils and leatherbound notebooks, frugal reuse of inexpensive pencils and paper, taking your notes on a tablet, apple, hating apple, taking a balanced view of apple and their competitors, beards, moustaches, and shaving... all hipster.


Display of butthurt whenever people make fun of hipsters?  Hipster.

I don't think the majority will last beyond their first mortally wounded, but not yet dead animal.

CSB Time:

First time I ever shot and killed my first moose was when I was 17. I saw a calf, took the shot and it dropped but wasn't dead. It then started doing it's distress call (think shrieking baby) man I started to cry. I finally got up enough courage to face what I'd done and put the poor sucker out of his misery. While walking, slowly, through the bush towards the beaver pond I'd shot the calf in, I noticed the cow off to my left. Since another hunter in the party had a cow tag, I shot her too. This one was a clean kill, right through the heart. I then finally made it to the calf and put it down. Then I had to field dress these two moose alone. It was well past dark before I made it back to camp to get the other guys to haul the meat out of the bush. Anyway, that time was tough and it gets easier but I'll never ever forget that first calf and his distress call.

This really isn't a bad thing at all. Lots of money for conservation comes from hunting, and if a bunch of "city boys" are out there experiencing nature while at the same time providing the funds to preserve it how can anybody hate them for it?

Road Rash: Crap. Now I'll never be able to find any ammo.


Nah, they'll make their own artisanal bullets and organic powder and only reload with vintage brass.

EyeballKid: HeadLever: autopsybeverage: And this is why I'd be frightened as a hunter -- how many of these newbies are going traipsing out into the woods with loaded weapons and not one lick of safety training?

In all seriousness to this point - I believe all states now require hunter's safety courses in order to obtain a hunting license.

EXACTLY! And it's not like your local NRA chapter has scrapped its obligation to promoting proper firearm safety for the sake of drumming up fearful "gubmint gon' git yer gunz" rhetoric, right?


/Is that Darwin in bright orange and camo gear? What's he doing out here?


I realize that you're a farking moron. But for anyone else that reads that may buy into your dumb shiat:

The NRA is still the standard for gun safety courses. They do more to promote and set up gun safety programs more than any other organization. Say what you want about their politics, that's fair game. But to say they forsaken gun and hunter safety for politics is a lie

Ant: So what exactly is it that differentiates them from regular hunters and fishermen? Are they doing it ironically? How does this stuff work?


they bring the latest iPhone and show it off to the deer.  Then the entire forest makes fun of him and he doesn't realize it.
