Introducing the MeatEater Hunting Scandal Assessment Chart

It seems that every couple months the animal rights activists of America rain hell down on some unfortunate hunter over perceived wrongness of a kill. As an editorial team we often have a difficult time finding the right way to respond to these blow ups. So, we decided to create this form as a way to separate the bullshit from actual hunter wrongdoing. Please feel free to print this out and use with your friends the next time some movie star declares a social media crusade against one of us.
