Single mother has given up shopping at supermarkets and instead hunts and kills boar, deer and foxes before whipping them into meals for her family

A single mother has stopped shopping at supermarkets because she hunts and kills wild animals for her meals.

Lisa Taylor posted photographs which show her holding her rifles and boasting about the animals she has just killed.

The hunter, from Surrey, posed for photographs and smiled in one as she held up a wild boar which had just been shot.

Other images show her sitting next to deer, foxes and roe buck she has just killed while hunting.

Ms Taylor then uploaded photographs which showed her cooking venison (pictured) after going on a hunt .

She then cooks the meat and posts photographs of her meals to her Facebook page, which has attracted more than 15,000 followers who ‘like’ her posts.

Ms Taylor wrote on her page: ‘I’m a girl who hunts and cooks. This is my way of meat shopping.’

When uploading photographs of her latest kills, she provides a detailed description of what she has just shot.

On one image, she wrote: ‘This was a Young Roe Buck (Spiker) I shot April 2015. He was quite skinny and was part of the cull plan.

‘Can’t believe Roe Buck season is coming back around so fast. Hopefully after culling last year’s bucks we should have a good healthy and strong herd of Roe deer.’

She also wrote on another picture: ‘A job that has to be done. But after eating my venison and wild boar stew I always need to top my freezer up.’

The mother, who manages a deer park, believes what she does is more humane and ethical than eating animals which have lived on factory farms.

And she keeps her army of followers – including 1,200 people who like her Instagram page – updated with pictures of her £1,200 night vision equipment.

She posed for this photograph and uploaded it online with the caption: 'Spring is here!!! Who else is looking forward to Roe Buck season?'

But her posts have angered some people who have criticised her decision to kill wild animals and one person called her a ‘disgusting person’.

Other critics asked her to ‘leave the poor foxes alone’ after she uploaded photographs to her Facebook page.

Padraig Hannafin wrote: ‘Why celebrate this? I’m from a sheep farming family so I get why it’s done but I don’t get the pride or glee of killing an animal.’

But other people posted positive comments to support her.

Greg Mayhew replied to one of her posts and said: ‘That’s great news !! Well done and much deserved. Keep posting for us. Cheers.’

Ian Jamieson added: ‘Well done Lisa all because of your hard work, you should be very proud of yourself xxx.’

Elisa Allen, Director animal rights charity PETA UK, told MailOnline: ‘There’s a word for a person who derives pleasure from killing.

‘And while this woman is clearly desperate for attention, callously snuffing out the lives of animals who wanted nothing more than a peaceful existence will make her reviled rather than revered.

‘Most Brits admire real sportspeople and genuine sportsmanship, not small individuals who hurt others in order to make themselves feel big.’

Alaska Outfitter Defends Fishermen from Raging Grizzly with 9mm Pistol

I have been guiding brown bear hunters and fishermen and bear photographers from our homestead within Becharof National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska for 33 years and have had numerous close encounters with bears. Until now, I have never had to shoot an unwounded bear to protect either myself or clients, but the other week an event occurred and my good fortune changed.

When it happened, I was fully aware of what was going on and how big the bear was. I also managed to stay aware of where my clients were, even when the bear was directly between us. The woman I was guiding said that while she did not remember smelling the bear’s breath, it was close enough to her face that it could have bitten her!

I have killed enough bears to know how important shot placement can be, even with large-bore rifles. I was well aware of the limitations of my 9mm pistol, even with Buffalo Bore ammo. I was aiming for a vital area with each shot; because it all took place between 6 and 8 feet, they were not far off. But hitting the head and brain of a highly animated and agitated animal is a difficult shot.

Alaska Outfitter Defends Fishermen from Raging Grizzly with 9mm Pistol

The two photos shown here tell a pretty good story by themselves. The secondary photo (embedded at the bottom of this story) was taken from the point where the charging bear first erupted from the brush. I am on the left and Larry, my fishing client, is on the right. The bear was within 2 feet or less of Larry and his wife when I shot it. You can see the dead bear to the left of Larry. The main photo (embedded to the right) shows Larry and me with the dead bear and shows its size.

Larry and his wife were fishing with me, and because we were going to a small stream I had fished before, which had numerous large male brown bears, I decided to take my Smith & Wesson 3953 DAO 9mm, rather than the S&W 629 .44 Mag. Mountain Gun I have carried for the past 25 years, as the larger boars are usually less of a problem than sows with cubs.

Before we reached the stream, while we were walking through dense brush and tall grass, we heard a growl and deep “woof” of a bear approximately 6 feet to our right (behind me in the secondary photo). We had been talking loudly but must have startled a sleeping bear. It sounded like it made a movement toward us, and I shouted loudly and the bear ran back through the brush to the right in the photo. Within 15 seconds, we could hear it growling and charging through the dense brush from the opposite side.

I had my pistol out by then, and the bear first appeared from where the photographer in photo No. 2 was standing. It went straight for my clients; Larry and his wife fell backwards in the deep grass. She said the bear’s face was close enough to hers that it could have bitten her!

The bear was highly agitated and standing within 3 feet of my clients when I decided I could take a shot without endangering them.

My first shot was at its neck, and then it began growling and spinning toward the impact. I wanted to hit the head but the bear was moving so fast I simply began shooting each time I could hit a vital area. I hit it six times before it turned to run off, and my seventh shot was into its pelvis area as it ran. When it dropped within 6 feet of the last shot, I checked my pistol and found I had only a single round left in the chamber so decided against walking in and finishing it.

My pistol was loaded with Buffalo Bore 9mm +P Outdoorsman 147-grain FN hard-cast loads that have a muzzle velocity of 1100 fps. I had previously tested, compared and proven such loads with my .357 and .44 mags., and I was convinced they would work.

COLORADO: HUNTER CLAIMS HE WAS SEXUALLY ASSAULTED BY A SASQUATCH

Darrel Whitaker, from Glenwood Springs in Colorado, claims a sasquatch attacked him and attempted to rape him while he was walking in the woods.

The 57-year old man was walking to his hunting cabin on Sunday, to see if it had suffered any damage during the winter.

All of a sudden, a large “gorilla-like” CREATURE dropped from a tree in front of him punched him in the face.

“It was at least 8-foot tall and it’s punches hurt like hell! I was knocked right out at the first blow!”

While Mr. Whitaker was trying to recover from the attack, the large humanoid CREATURE began to tear his clothes while letting out some terrifying howls.

“When I regained consciousness, he had already torn my pants and was tearing through my underwear. I stabbed him in the shoulder with my hunting knife, and that made him run away.”

Mr. Whitaker immediately reported the attack to both the Glenwood Springs Police Department (GSPD) and the Colorado Parks and Wildlife agency, and a joint investigation has been launched.

Investigators found some extremely large footprints on the site, which they believe are those of the aggressor.

Darrel Whitaker is convinced that the CREATURE who attacked him was a sasquatch, but the GSPD investigators say it’s more probable that the attacker is simply a particularly large and hairy man.

They are currently interrogating nearby residents to see if anyone noticed an individual corresponding to the description of the suspect.

According to the victim, the attacker measure around 8-foot tall and is extremely hairy. He has brown hair, dark brown eyes and extremely large feet.

If you possess any information concerning the suspect, please contact the Glenwood Springs Police Department or the Colorado Parks and Wildlife agency.

Deer meets turkey hunter, tries to eat his Ghillie suit

Leon Champine, Joe Pople, and Corey Cook were out turkey hunting when an unlikely pair joined their hunting party.

It was just before dawn when two young bucks wandered up on the trio of hunters.

The yearling bucks were curious an unafraid as they sniffed and licked the hunters’ shotguns.

Champine pulled out his camera and took a few videos of the brave little deer as they sniffed, licked, and tried to eat his Ghillie suit.

“I believe this is their first season without following mom around to teach them what is dangerous,” Champine told Indiana Fox News affiliate Fox 59. “I also believe that they were just simply inquisitive.”

The three men have more than 50 years of combined hunting experience, and none of them have ever seen something like this. “It was truly a once in a lifetime encounter that I am incredibly fortunate enough to have captured on my phone,” Champine said.

NEW WORLD RECORD TRICERATOPS TAKEN IN RUSSIA!

What started out as a typical hunt has quickly turned into a dream come true for this Russian hunter. Asking to stay anonymous until the media attention dies down and the record is officially confirmed, this hunter may find himself in the books after harvesting a possible world record Triceratops.

april fools triceratops

After glassing a few bluffs in the early morning fog, the hunter noticed some movement down below in the thick brush but was unable to see what exactly was bedded below.

 All he could tell is that it was big.

Formulating a plan, he moved back down the bluff he’d come from and circled the ravine, trying to get downwind of the animal to cover his scent. After getting to where he wanted, he waited, hoping the animal would soon get up to feed. To his surprise, the Triceratops appeared from the brush just moments later. That’s when he knew he was onto something special.

 Although his Triceratops sightings had been few and far between, the hunter had seen enough to know this one was mature and huge in size. The rut was in full swing, and the male Triceratops was with a female in heat, running and chasing all over the tundra. After multiple attempts to get the animal stopped for a clean shot, the Triceratops had moved out of range.

Distraught, the hunter thought he had missed out on a chance of a lifetime. He decided then to begin a spot and stalk in the direction of where the pair were headed, still hoping to track down the monster.

After a three-hour spot and stalk, the hunter got within range and fought to calm his nerves.

He squeezed the trigger and watched the creature run about 80 yards before toppling over.

“I’ve never experienced anything like it,” he said. “I’ve hunted whitetail, caribou, elk, and even a few bear in my day, but chasing this animal is like nothing else.”

Currently, wildlife officers and biologists have the dinosaur in their possession for research and scoring.

At a whopping 32 feet and three inches long, 10 feet two inches tall, and an absurd 25,974-pound weigh-in, this harvest is sure to crush the previous world record. The two horns measured over four feet long each. He’s a true trophy, and based on the measurements, they are guessing his age at over 82 million. Mature for sure.

When we asked the hunter his thoughts on the whole ordeal, he showed surprising restraint. All he had to say was, “Now I have to figure out what kind of mount I want, and where it could even fit in my house…”

“…or if the wife will even approve,” he chuckled.

This is amazing, to say the least, and it brings a whole new meaning to “Big Game Hunting.”
