Sarah Palin Takes Aim at 'Anti-Hunting Hypocrisy'

Beyond proving she’s a great shot, the episode is giving Palin an opportunity to “proudly” take aim at “anti-hunting hypocrisy.”

“Tonight's hunting episode of Sarah Palin's Alaska ‘controversial’? Really?” Palin posted on Facebook and Twitter. “Unless you've never worn leather shoes, sat upon a leather couch or eaten a piece of meat, save your condemnation of tonight's episode. I remain proudly intolerant of anti-hunting hypocrisy. :)”

Palin’s pro-hunting posts began on Friday when she urged fans to tune in to “see how we fill our freezers and feed our families with home-grown tundra-roaming Alaskan wild game. We'll show you how Alaskans hunt. As my friend Sue says, ‘the tundra is the type of landscape that will make a man out of anybody.’ And, PETA...” she wrote on Facebook.

The 2008 vice presidential nominee explains, “in many remotes areas of Alaska there’s no grocery store nearby. It’s 4 or 500 miles away. We’re down to just five moose packages, three caribou packages... It’s time to get out there and go caribou huntin’.”
