I wouldn't call hunting "exclusive" either. Last weekend a three male friends of mine went bird hunting in north central Florida on one of their grandfather's property. They are all average middle-class Americans, neither rich nor poor(aka rednecks).

So essentially shock the crap outta of the kid now instead of later, right? Blood, guts, and broken necks galore. Eh, he won't mind...

I don't agree with the whole hunting thing, but it's tradition, so what are you going to do. Nobody in Denmark seems to mind, and I haven't heard of any uproars about it like what happened in England several years ago. So why change?

Everything in Denmark is regulated to the full; if the hunting party shot a fox, I bet that was 'allocated' from a pool of foxes allowed to be shot. This again is, I bet (not being a hunter myself) part of a general plan for the 'maintenance' of the fox population. Foxes in DK have no other foes than traffic and hunters - and from what I understand the trick is also to keep the population of a particular animal at a sensible level. Don't see where 'for the heck of it' comes in.

Enjoy yourself in your own 'hunt' then Yep, start with all the royals who have received free cars and be prepared to encounter quite a number in many countries (what do you think Volvo and Saab did when it was Swedish owned ? ). All sorts of free gifts are presented to the royals; Alexandra was presented with a costly fur coat in the presence of media. If you lack ammunition try looking into some threads here and elsewhere where posters discuss jewellery given to e.g. the British royals by the Saudis. The beautiful Khedive tiara which came into the DRF was once presented as a gift to the late queen Ingrid's mother (then a British princess) as far as I know. Have fun with all these 'corrupted' royals

..well, if he gets a good look of his granny´s dental area during one of these hugs,.....that would certainly be a shocker.

Though GT obviously meant the dead animals.

What Crownprincess Mary (once) said and what she do now can be very different. Look also here: http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...y-14124-6.html

But always remember: What she says and what the media write is also very different.
We can't know what she once said...

I believe that Carina is an author of one or two children's books yes. She also illustrates them herself

During hunting season (here in the USA) we see lots of pickup trucks with deer,boar,and bear that have been killed by the proud driver of the truck. Not sure what the sport is when they are using highly sophisticated guns, scopes, etc. Now, if they were to go out with just a kitchen knife...that would even the odds a little more. Also, the local newspapers always show a picture ++++ of children as yound as 8years old with their first kill.
I just like my meat from the grocery store or butcher shop all wrapped up.

Thanks Jess. Here is a close up shot of Carina and Mary at the royal hunt. Apparently, the two went Christmas shopping either before or after this photo was taken. The reporter notes that the rode in Mary's new Saab. One more photo of Mary, Carina,Margrethe, and Helle. The Queen hosted a lunch while the men where hunting. Prior to the lunch, the ladies headed on over to a museum in Copenhagen.

More photos from Fredensborg.

Royal Hunting

You can be sure that the Master of the Hunt and the forest Rangers/managers keep a strict reign on what can be culled and what can't. These forests are not that big and every year a certain amount of stags will have to be culled otherwise you will have wild animals wandering into suburbia making nuisances of themselves.
Rest assured the royal hunters are not allowed to shoot just anything. The Master of the hunt will have informed them precisely of what can and can't be taken. And yes photos of dead animals displayed on a lawn is not the most attractive sight.
