Welcome to Vegan Shooter!

Some of you may recognize me also as the “offroad vegan.”  As I mention over on that blog, I am a vegan that strays from the stereotype, and who really wants to break them.  We don’t all wear skinny jeans and drive fixie bikes.  We work hard, we jeep, we shoot, we share vegan jerky on camping trips, and take a good ribbing from our omni friends.  But in the end, it is how vegans reach out into the mainstream that will really impact our movement.

I hate to say it, but these “shout outs” in restaurants and grocery stores do little if anything to help.  In many ways, they continue to paint vegans as yelling, angry activists with no room for understanding or middle ground.

If we really, truly want to move veganism forward, we need to stop shouting.  Be approachable. Be thick skinned.  Push out into mainstream society.  Just don’t be a dick.

And that is the goal with my two blogs.  Focus on my personal hobbies (Jeeping and shooting) where there is not a lot of vegan representation.  Be available, educate those that ask, and put plenty of lead downrange.

Thanks for stopping by!
