Columbus, OH –-(Ammoland.com)- The popular TV series, Duck Dynasty, has captured the attention of the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), with the animal rights group criticizing the show for promoting hunting.

Duck Dynasty, a popular show on A&E, follows the lives of the Robertson family, owners of the Duck Commander duck call brand. Family members are seen sporting camouflage, building duck blinds, and often times follows the family into the field while hunting.

PETA’s Vice President Dan Mathews is speaking out against the show, claiming that hunting encourages would-be criminals.

“Unfortunately hunting programs teach kids that violence is somehow acceptable,” Mathews told radaronline.com. “according to law-enforcement agencies, violent and aggressive criminals often start out as kids who were encouraged to disrespect and harm animals rather than understanding and being in awe of them.”

Nothing could be further from the truth.

Hunting has proved to be the number one conservation program in the fight to preserve and expand our nation’s wildlife populations. Young hunters are taught the importance of safety, and more importantly why we hunt and their importance in conservation efforts.

Mathews also claims that hunting licenses have plummeted in the past two decades and that “most people have a reverence for animals.”

If Mathews would have done his research, he would actually find that hunting license purchases have remained consistent over the last two decades while the public’s acceptance of hunting is over 70 percent.

PETA is the number three group on the USSA’s ‘Dirty Dozen’ list. PETA encourages its members to break established hunter harassment laws and to interfere with hunts by protesting, blowing horns, and other unlawful acts.

    PETA formed a group, continues to beg donations from the useful idiots, and that way Dan Mathews and people like him avoid working at Walmart as stock boys. Just another garden variety fraud. Look at their rescue record.

    Humans didn’t claw their way to the top of the food chain, just to eat carrots. People Eating Tasty Animals is a very entertaining bunch of clowns. Had the media failed to write this article, nobody would have known or cared about this silly opinion.

    Hunting and fishing teaches children the meaning of life and to respect and appreciate Gods gift to mankind for survival and comfort.If PETA wants to be useful they should focus on the doping of our children by the headshrinkers,pharmaceutical companies and makers of violent video games,those are the real danger to us,not doing what God intended.

    PETA, you are RIGHT. Animals need to be protected. If they aren’t they will go extinct, and then we won’t be able to hunt and eat them.

    If you think they are beautiful in the woods, you oughta see ’em next to a mound of mashed potatoes with mushroom gravy!

    PETA destroys more animals than it helps, it has a terrible record for its donation/ cost ratio. Its a money making machine. Unless your a vegan, any meat or fish you eat was killed for food. Leather is not created in laboratories, cows do not commit suicide so you can get new shoes. The show is fine, leave it alone. People are complaining about it showing prayer as well. Get over it, if you don’t like it, don’t watch it.
