A mother-of-two who was trolled panduan judi online after killing a mountain lion and a bear has told how she has no remorse.

Physician Jennifer Tomsheck Hawes, 46, from , grew up on a ranch near her hometown, where she began hunting at just five-years-old.

Her first kill was a gopher, and she went on to shoot her first deer when she was just 12-years-old.

After her first deer hunt, she felt the adrenaline rush through her body and she’s been hooked ever since. 

Jennifer recalls feeling accomplished and proud after her first hunt and enjoys the exercise of hunting as well as being outdoors the most.

‘I don’t feel any remorse over the animals I kill, as I put my hunting to good use and use their meat to feed my family, which gives the animal a new purpose,’ she explained.

‘I believe that if you eat meat, you cannot criticize hunters.

Cows and pigs have it far worse than the free-range elk that I hunt and a well placed shot means a quick and painless death – much more humane than what some animals go through.’

A typical day hunting involves waking up in the early hours of the morning, grabbing some coffee and snacks and going to a nearby field, where she will walk for miles at a time and stalk the animals to watch their movements and make a plan for the morning. 

Jennifer usually goes hunting alone and once she’s got her kill, she will then skin and process the entire animal by herself, where the animal will then go into her freezer for her family to eat across the next year.

The physician tries to hunt at any chance she gets and will usually take a few weeks off during the main deer and elk season in September.

She has also got her two kids involved with the hobby.

Ellie, 17, and Jaden, 19, were first introduced to hunting when they were just toddlers. On their first time hunting, her son shot a deer and an antelope at just 12-years-old and her daughter also shot her first deer at the same age from just under 300-foot away.

Since starting her hunting journey, Jennifer has so far hunted an elk, bear and mountain lion weighing around 150-pounds. 

Despite feeling accomplished with her hunts, Jennifer has had a few negative comments from people such as, ‘How can you kill such a beautiful animal?’, which angers Jennifer as she doesn’t just hunt as a hobby, but also for population management and food. 

Jennifer’s first kill was a gopher, and she went on to shoot her first deer when she was just 12-years-old.

Jennifer doesn’t feel any remorse over the animals she hunts and wishes people would understand that hunting is no different to being a meat eater.

‘I began hunting in September 1986, as I grew up on a ranch near my hometown and was introduced to the hobby from a young age,’ said Jennifer.

‘I used to love being outdoors and at just five-years-old, I hunted my first animal which was a gopher.

As I wasn’t of a legal shooting age, I didn’t hunt for the first time using a rifle on my own until I was twelve-years-old, where I shot a deer.

‘I felt so alive after my first real hunt and as a sense of accomplishment ran through my body, I became hooked on hunting.

‘A typical day for me starts off waking up in the early hours of the morning and driving by my nearest gas station to grab coffee and snacks to help fuel me for the long day ahead.

‘I will then travel to a nearby field or forest and begin stalking any animals I can spot, so that I can analyze their movements ready to make a plan for the morning. 

Jennifer has also taken her kids (pictured, Ellie, now 17) out hunting, who at just 12-years-old, hunted their first animal 

As Jennifer is a full-time physician, she finds it difficult to get the time to go hunting, which is why she goes whenever she can (pictured)

Jennifer loves taking her kids out hunting with her.

‘There’s lots of hiking involved and sometimes if you have no luck, you usually stop off for lunch and then head back out ready for the evening hunt – it’s an action-packed day.

‘Although I still enjoy hunting for the same reasons, I also love being able to provide fresh meat for my family for the next year to come.

‘As I usually go alone, I tend to do the whole process from start to finish myself where I will skin the animal, chop it up and then store it in my freezer for the next few months for my family’s dinner.

‘I wanted my kids to find a love for hunting at a young age just like I did, so when they were toddlers I used to take them out with me where they would hike for miles as they were too young to shoot and watch me hunt.

‘Most people ask if I was nervous taking them out – especially whilst doing such a dangerous sport – but I wasn’t nervous at all, I was actually excited to teach them and make them my hunting partners.

‘During my son’s first hunt when he was just twelve-years-old, he hunted a deer and antelope which was extremely impressive and I now believe that he is a better hunter than I am.

‘Although my daughter enjoyed her first hunt, where she shot her first deer from just under three-hundred-feet away, she doesn’t care for shooting anymore but still tags along for the journey.’

Jennifer loves hunting so much that she tries to go at any chance she gets, but as she works full-time as a physician, she usually takes a few weeks off during the main season for hunting deer and elk to get her hunting fix.

‘Since I started hunting, I have hunted an elk, bear and a big tom mountain lion which weighed one-hundred-and-fifty-pounds,’ Jennifer said.

‘Despite this, I believe that it isn’t the size of the trophy that matters, but the experience of hunting the trophy, as this is what brings the greatest sense of achievement.

‘I do have difficulties sometimes being impatient, where I constantly have to tell myself to slow down and take my time as you have to have a careful eye and steady balance when it comes to hunting.

‘After I started posting my hunting images online, I did have a few comments from colleagues in other areas of the country who didn’t agree with what I was doing, but were still respectful with their words nonetheless.

‘However, I once had a comment that really angered me from a complete stranger who commented, “How can you kill such a beautiful animal?” which infuriated me as they were referring to a mountain lion that I once killed.

‘If they knew that I hunted this predator to help with the management of the population of other animals, I think they would’ve thought twice about their comment.

She continued: ‘Despite this, I have had some lovely comments such as, “Your kids are so lucky to have a mum like you” which puts a smile on my face, as I’m a single parent and I like doing the best I can for my kids.’
