A nurse hunting wild animals and posting photos on social media of her murders has received threats to rape and kill her baby daughter.
Kate Small has killed bears, deer, pigs, wolves in her home area of Boise, Idaho and in other places in the world such as South Africa.
The 29-year-old then posts photos of her trophies on Instagram while posing with the dead carcasses.
As a backcountry hunter, Small can spend days or weeks in the field hunting an animal and has built up a fan base of 27,000 followers on Instagram.
The largest animal Small has ever hunted was a black bear that was more than 6 ft long and weighed more than 350 pounds.
This six-foot black bear (pictured above) was Kate & # 39; s largest prey, weighing more than 350 pounds. She placed the photo on her Instagram account
Small says she only hunts for & # 39; food and preservation & # 39; and eat any animal that it hunts, except wolves (above) that are not suitable for human consumption
Small, 29, says she hunted for 10 years and was introduced to blood sport by her stepfather and immediately fell in love with it & # 39;
Kate Small also hunts different types of fish around her home in Idaho. She claims that hunters & # 39; raise more money to maintain license fees, tags, and taxes than any other group & # 39;
But the most difficult animal to hunt was a wolf because of the heightened senses, speed, and distance that they can travel in a day, she said.
Small, who has been hunting for about 10 years, mainly hunts with her fiancé, Justin, and hopes to introduce her daughter, Finley, to the blood sport.
She claims in an & # 39; ethical way & # 39; to hunt and only kill animals for food or & # 39; conservation & # 39; and wants more women to participate in the hunt.
Placed online in a video Small creators about the & # 39; dropping & # 39; of a bear during a hunt. She emphasizes that her yachts are all legal.
Small said: & # 39; I like to know exactly where my food comes from and not only that, but also work very hard to get it. I like to offer organic, nutritious meals for my family. This lifestyle also lets me create eternal memories with my friends and family, & she said.
& # 39; Even if I can't harvest an animal, memories made on a mountain, fighting the elements and pushed to the limit, are invaluable. It is a real test of your inner strength and character.
& # 39; I save as much as possible from the animal as I can. I always keep my head and hide from assembly. The meat is what we live on, we slaughter it ourselves and then we eat it the rest of the year.
Kate Small recently killed a gem in South Africa. She said: & # 39; We have certain seasons that you can hunt, each state is different. I will hunt mule deer for a month in October, during which time if I am lucky enough to find one, I will harvest only one deer mule & # 39;

Small cutting kill after hunting in the countryside. She said: & # 39; It takes months of effort and strategies. Finding the right areas, setting up trail cameras, following the animal's habits, and preparing days to weeks in the interior.

& # 39; Aside from wolves, because they carry parasites that are dangerous to eat and the meat is bad, I don't hunt for something that I don't eat. I never take an animal for fun, it's for food or conservation. & # 39;
As a result of her messages on social media, Small has received thousands of death threats online, some even targeting her one-year-old daughter and her dogs.
She added: “I have actually received thousands of death threats. People say things I would never wish for my worst enemy. I have had hundreds of people who also threatened to rape and kill my one-year-old daughter. I remember a person who said, "I'm going to put your baby in a blender and listen to her screams."
& # 39; I also let people say they are going to kill my dogs, which just doesn't make sense to me, you're angry that I killed an animal, so you're going to kill an animal.
& # 39; For the most part I try to use education and explain why I do what I do, but I have to admit that my sarcasm sometimes gets better from me and I respond with humor. I usually laugh at the death threats, if you threaten someone who hunts top predators for a living, you shouldn't be so smart. & # 39;
Small claims to certain animals were less cruel than that they died from causes of nature.

She said: “Those I know who hunt, including myself, have a huge respect for animals and care for them, that's another reason why we do what we do.
& # 39; Every year fish and game (authorities) come with new quotas that specify what and how much of each species can and must be hunted in each specific area. These quotas are based on scientific research to keep the population healthy.
& # 39; Hunting helps these animals prevent the spread of diseases and the fight for food. I know people think that hunting is cruel, but it isn't, you know what's cruel? Mother Nature. Have you ever seen a moose half eaten by wolves and suffering for hours while dying slowly and painfully? Have you ever seen a mule deer gradually languish and eventually die of hunger?
& # 39; I don't know how you are, but for me, a single shot sounds a much better way to deal with the vitals. & # 39;
