Twin sister hunters say they have been labeled ‘killer sluts’ since they placed images of dead animals
Twin sister hunters said they had been labeled ‘killer sluts’ and received death threats after posting pictures of their killings on Instagram.
Veterinary nurse Rikke Jacobsen, 26, and her physiotherapist sister Trine, from Ry in Denmark, post pictures of themselves laughing as they stand over the battered corpses of foxes, badgers, deer and ducks.
The sisters say that killing animals has strengthened their friendship, while Rikke said she can’t forget “the glow” on her sisters’ face when she killed her first red deer in the Scottish Highlands.
The two say they hunt ‘to have a freezer full of high-quality game meat’ and sometimes even target fox boys, which they say resemble puppies, to keep the numbers down.

Veterinarian Rikke said she first became interested in hunting at the age of ten, and her career has given her a profound knowledge of animal anatomy. Trine said she has been interested in hunting since the teenage years and training with the army in 2014
The couple say that hunting animals have brought them closer together. They are depicted with ducks that they have killed near their home in Ry, Denmark
“It was a great memory to see my twin sister hunting her first red deer in the Scottish Highlands,” Rikke said.
“Her smile stretched from ear to ear. When I saw that look, I realized how special these experiences really are and we can experience it together.
“The thought that we have this passion together is what I love and it has brought us closer to our father.
“A man once wrote me a message that I was a” killer slut. ” To be honest, it doesn’t really matter to us. It is our way of life. “
Trine, who received her hunting license after joining the army in 2014 and discovered she was good with weapons, was once threatened by a man who said, “You can suffer the same fate as the poor animals you kill.”
“But to be honest, we prefer to be in the forest than in the supermarket,” she said. ‘I want to fill my freezer with high-quality game meat, instead of meat bought in the store.

“The thought of taking care of myself is satisfying. Nothing beats it with a steak that you have obtained by hunting.
“All my yacht gave me great memories. I find peace in nature and you really become part of nature when you go hunting.
“The best thing about hunting or all kinds of adventures is to share it with those you love. Rikke and I are so close, and having this together has brought us even closer.
‘It’s a lifestyle, and I love to go hunting and kill an animal, I just enjoy seeing Rikke do it. It is an adventure every time we go out. ”
Shot over fox cubs, Rikke admitted that it is sometimes disturbing because the animals look like little puppies, but it claimed that it had to be done to control their numbers.
“Sometimes we hunt foxes, including the little ones, and when they are puppies they remind us of dog puppies,” she said. “Hunters have a heart for animals, so of course we sometimes think about why we do it.”
“I think all hunters are sorry about the animals they kill because we don’t hate them, we respect them.

Trine suggested that he prepare a red deer that was shot in Denmark. She said she wants a freezer “full of high-quality game meat”
The interest of the two sisters in hunting can also be linked to their father Frank, 56, who showed them hunting when they were young
“Foxes are our biggest predator in Denmark – and if we don’t shoot at them, there will be too many. By the end of the day, shooting at foxes is a major problem. “
‘In towns and villages, foxes eat everything they can find – discarded takeaway meals, food left out for cats or birds.
“We don’t need foxes or other predators to be familiar with people, so we have to go on a fox hunt – otherwise we see them visiting children on playgrounds or our dogs in the gardens.”
The two say that their love for hunting started at a young age, when their father Frank, 56, always photographed them.
Rikke said that her interest started after having a ten-year-old hunting dog, and that she is now partially continuing because of her interest in animal anatomy.
“I work as a veterinarian and anatomy is a big part of my job, so it’s really interesting to find out which organs the bullet went through,” she said.
Trine, on the other hand, said that her passion started from her teenage years and was strengthened when she found out she was good at shooting after joining the army in 2014.

A recent photo on their Instagram shows a bloody hand that grabs the four hooves of a deer with the caption, “take the meat home to eat, and 2020 is NO difference.”
The couple have posted pictures of yachts in Vassbacken, Sweden and the Scottish Highlands.
The largest animal they have ever killed is a Scottish red deer, which weighed 10 pounds on the 15th.
Rikke defended their decision to hunt animals and said: ‘For me, hunting is a lifestyle – I live and breathe for nature, and to live and provide by hunting and what nature can offer us. It brings us closer to our ancestors.
“Many people think it’s all about murder when they think about hunting. But there are so many preparations before, during and after the hunt.
‘We respect all animals and animals in the wild, even if we go hunting. We do not harvest animals, we kill and eat them, but we respect it.
“Without animals in our world we would have nothing. So every time we kill, we say “thank you” for the opportunity. “
