Anti-Hunters Try to Get Texas Tech Cheerleader Banned From Facebook For Posting Big Game Hunting Photos
Kendall Jones is a 19 year old Texas girl who is a cheerleader and student at Texas Tech University. She is also a big game hunter. At only the age of 19, Jones is already one of the most accomplished female bow hunters in the world.
Here is part of her bio from Facebook,
In 2008, (age 13) I took my second trip to Africa to start my Big 5 experience, but this time to South Africa. Although I had many other opportunities to shoot animals I wanted to save it for the Big 5, so the first animal I ever shot was a White Rhino with a .416 Remington!! On this trip I also took some plains game, such as impala, kudu and mountain reedbuck home.
I returned to Africa the next summer in 2009 (age 14) to finish my quest for The Big 5. This time I went on a 28 day safari and took an Elephant with a shot from a .416 Remington and finished it off with my dad’s .470 Nitro Express. Along with the elephant I also harvested a charging Cape buffalo and a huge maned lion. Unfortunately, I did not get a chance to take a leopard on this trip, so I returned 2 weeks later for another 14 day safari. This time I got my leopard, and also took down a hippo to get 6 of the Dangerous 7 at the age of 14! I was lucky enough to have all of my hunting adventures professionally videoed and put onto DVD.
Jones is now facing mounting online criticism over her African hunting trips and photos posted to her Facebook page.
It should be noted that all of Jones’ hunts were legal, they brought literally tens of thousands of dollars of economic impact into impoverished regions, and all of the meat harvested was eaten by Jones, her crew and local villagers.
This is certainly not the first time a female hunter has been placed in the crosshairs of anti-hunters and all have made it through unphased.
