I seen something similar a while back at a Walmart while traveling thru Oklahoma. I think it was "Lucky 50" in 12 oz. bottles,12 pack for $2.99. Bet that was tasty. :skeered:

We all know I indulge but I seriously hate the relentless effort to make hunters look like beer swilling, irresponsible drunkards.

I have seen these packages and even the banners outside the stores welcoming the hunters. As soon as I can get ahold of the banners I too will post them up each October. I do not drink at all during the hunt but I am known for dropping a few after the harvest. Marketing has always been a wonderful tool often misinterpreted by the masses. No all hunters do not hunt drunk but many do drink.

LOL, a 30 pack of one of those followed my wife home from the store last night. She was most proud of herself for bringing me "something cool".

I used to work for Anheuser Busch back in St Louis, so I've definitely seen the welcome hunter banners.

"We all know I indulge but I seriously hate the relentless effort to make hunters look like beer swilling, irresponsible drunkards." Bruce, I'm with you on this. I too resent being identified with drinking, just because I'm a hunter. That is the only perception a great many people have of hunters. The sad part is that there are too many hunters out there that personify that perception. Is that how some people want to be represented? I know I don't. I would never buy that stuff with that advertising on it just because of what it represents.

How come if Busch decides to honor our pastime with a wildlife theme for the fall hunting season people assume all hunters are drunks or hunt drunk? I would buy that just because Busch has shown me it supports my outdoor hunting lifestyle. As Bruce admitted, he indulges. Pretty sure he does not hunt drunk or drive drunk or quite likely even get drunk. They show footballs on cases. That mean the NFL guys play drunk? That mean everyone who watches football gets drunk? I am all for setting good examples for my sport. That means I will NOT take blame for slobs who are ignorant jerks that happen to hunt anymore than I will take blame for idiots that do all sorts of awful things and drive a car or go to church or vote Republican or happen to be the same color as me.

Here's to Busch for supporting the rich sport and honored tradition of The Hunt.
