Celebrities that hunt

Even though the narrative being pushed throughout Hollywood lately leans more toward the animal rights/veganism side of things, there are still celebrities out there that are in know where their food comes from and enjoy being out on the land hunting and fishing.

Here are just a couple I was able to find, some I already knew about and some were a huge surprise:

1 – Kid Rock

Kid Rock, otherwise known as Robert James Ritchie, grew up in Michigan and although he had a ‘rural upbringing’ he is the only hunter in his family. He has a passion for deer hunting and recently started bowhunting after being taught be a good friend of his, Ted Nugent.

2 – Avril Lavinge

Avril grew up hunting in Canada with her family, and it was actually her attitude towards hunting that got her signed with her first manager, Cliff Fabri. Some lovely fans of the singer have even started a petition on Change.org to stop Avril hunting.

3 – Eva Longoria-Parker

Eva grew up on a ranch in Texas, it was here she says she learnt how to kin a deer, pig, snake and rabbits. She claims to be a great shot with a gun and can skin anything you hand her. Go Eva!

4 – Chris Pratt

A lot of people know that Mr Pratt, AKA Star Lord, is an avid elk hunter. He claims to be obsessed with big game hunting after moving to Utah in 2013, also saying ‘Hunting is in my blood’. He now owns his own farm where he and his family breed sheep for meat and wool.

Here I am vacuum packing some deer meat in the kitchen. I grew up in the woods. Not literally. I mean, we had a house. I wasn't raised by coyotes. But I spent a lot of time in the woods. Hunting, fishing and being outdoors with my friends and family is how I spent my free time as a young'n. That part of me will never change. I mean. I'm assuming. I don't know. Maybe it will. It hasn't yet. Maybe one day I'll wake up and be like, "I'm only gonna eat veggies for the rest of my life." If I do that's cool. It's a free country. Anyways. I just filled the freezer with a bunch of tasty meat from an awesome deer hunt in the great state of Texas. Oh! I should tell you: I'm going to start a diet I called "The Game Plan" where basically I only eat wild game for a year. "The Game Plan," get it? Cause GAME? I mean I'll also eat veggies and fruit and other stuff too. But for one year I want to eat only the meats that were caught or killed by me or my friends. Total free range organic wild game! The game plan. Join me. I mean I'm gonna still eat eggs and probably chicken and probably steak I mean I gotta have steak and oysters and definitely bacon. But other than that. And the occasional burger for a cheat meal. But other than that only wild game. The game plan. I should mention I will also have sushi because I have to have sushi because it's so good. And pepperoni. But that's not a meat technically, right? But other than that all wild game. And pepperchinis! (That's not how you spell that) Exclusively wild game. It will be tough. But it's worth the sacrifice. I will be eating turkey for thanksgiving. Probably fried. That's the best. And also ham. For Easter we make lamb. That's great. Ill have to have lamb that day. So… "The Game Plan" Who's with me!?

5 – The Royals

The Royal Family have been hunters from way back, not only do they participate in an annual Boxing Day Hunt for pheasants, ducks and partridges, they have all been in the media for their hunting adventures and commentary.
The Queen was the first woman to ever be on the cover of Field & Stream magazine back in 1976 in a feature about her gun dogs. Prince Harry faced controversy after ‘trophy hunting’ a water buffalo during his 2004 gap year at the military academy and more recently going on a wild boar hunt in Germany. Prince William has openly backed trophy hunting for elephants in Botswana, after the country banned trophy hunting back in 2014, at the detriment of both the animals and the economy.

6 – Rosie Huntington-Whitley

Rosie grew up on a farm near Tavistock, Devon in the UK. Some people find it hard to imagine the actress/model out in the bush with a gun but she has been open about the fact that she used to eat squirrels and birds that she hunted back on the farm. In an interview admitting that she used to hunt she also said, “I’m probably gonna be hated for that. Everything gets eaten on the farm. It’s where food comes from.”
