Green, it was a joke. I will not speak for Hunting wife...she can do that all by herself, and I am sure she will.
But, dude you need to relax. There is no reason to get all offended about nothing. I'm not sure your choice words will be taken very well. Your approach was less than tactful, and it was down a down right personal attack about a general statement made in jest. We poke fun at each other all the time in here, that is how it goes.
You say you do all this stuff about how you help wildlife, I am sure you do. But after your claims of the "ignorant statement," you go and make one of your own. You have no idea what she, her husband or the rest of us for that matter do to help hunting habitat. You feel slighted about the stereotypes made of the West coast, and at the same time you use the term "swamp rat hillbillies." So I am kind of scratching my head on this one. Even before that, you mention "movie ads" "comics" and "yard sales." So, with this, should I infer that is your idea of east coasters? So, I am not sure how that makes you any better than anybody else in here. Me...I don't care where anybody is from, and if they are a hillbilly swamp rat that likes to joke around, I'm hanging with them. If that makes me one to, so be it.
