Former NFL quarterback Carson Wentz recently embarked on a thrilling hunting expedition in Alaska, where he successfully took down a black bear using a bow and arrow, Your Content has learned.
Wentz proudly posed with the majestic animal, sharing the photo with his followers.
While the hunt was legal and within the guidelines of Alaska’s regulations, the image stirred a mixed response among animal lovers.
Wentz, known for his hunting background, expressed his excitement about the experience, describing the trip as “incredible” and the bear as an “incredible animal.”
However, the Instagram post attracted criticism from some individuals who expressed their disapproval of taking a living creature’s life in such a manner.
Frustrated fans voiced their concerns in the comments section, with some even contemplating unfollowing the former Eagles and Colts quarterback on the social media platform.
For those familiar with Wentz’s history, hunting is not a new passion for the athlete.
Having grown up hunting in North Dakota, the 30-year-old has previously documented his hunting expeditions, including the recent deer hunt in Indiana, which he shared on his YouTube channel.
It’s worth noting that Wentz is not alone among NFL professionals who enjoy hunting.
Other notable players, such as Jay Cutler, DeAngelo Williams, and Derek Wolfe, share a similar enthusiasm for the sport.
In fact, Wolfe made headlines earlier this year when he took down a mountain lion that posed a threat to a local community.
As Wentz currently navigates free agency, he seems to be relishing his newfound free time, indulging in his passion for hunting, according to TMZ.
