Jared Allen’s hunting credentials are well established — having had his share of spear hunting elk from the tops of trees — and we all know Brett Favre can take down big game at 1,000 yards with a well placed stubble shot, meaning any Vikings player looking to have a place in this rusticated regime had better get out there and start bagging some critters.
Not to be outdone is Adrian Peterson, who, in these pictures scared up by Gobbler Country, has tried his hand at taking down water fowl. Or at least posing with the ducks that someone else shot. There’s no info on when exactly this hunting trip took place, but we would like to think he grabbed the first pick-up out of town to the hunting lodge after a certain grizzled land baron joined the team with much fanfare.
Is this an actual effort to gibe with teammates or a crafty strategy to get PETA off Michael Vick’s back? My money’s on neither, but those would make blog-happy storylines, so let us pray.
When are athletes going to learn, keep this crap to yourself, no photos! All Day gets what he deserves. I’m not PETA crazy, but how the heck do you let these photos get out. You know he is going to get crap for this, even though it’s completely within his right as an American to do this. Do I believe in hunting? For your own food, yes, for sport no. The truth is this in no worse than fishing, but All Day is going to get a little negative publicity for this one.
