A representative for the animal rights group PETA said in response, "Jeffrey Dahmer ate everything he killed, too, but that didn't justify taking innocent lives."
Michaels, however, isn't concerned about any backlash pertaining to the show or his passion for hunting. He issued the following defense:
"In every aspect of my life, I live under the protection of and in accordance to the laws of this nation. At the end of the day, it's a wildlife biological fact and a conservation fact that the game must be managed. There's only so much habitat, i.e. food, out there. If you have 100 acres worth of food and you've got 500 animals out there, the young ones and the old ones are going to starve to death, because they can't compete," Michaels said.
"When they starve, they start to eat things they shouldn't be eating and spread disease not only to them, but to us."
He adds that the Michaels household rarely goes to the grocery store.
"We are a family that lives probably 90 percent on wild game. We're certainly working our way toward 100 percent self-sufficient. Looking to raise chickens for eggs, things of that nature, start a garden. We enjoy the simple life. It's a beautiful and wonderful adventure being out there. Hunting and fishing, processing your own game and eating what you hunt – that's a long and arduous process, but a joyful kind of work. The satisfaction that you get when you see the look of affirmation and validation on the face of my son when he's supplied dinner for the family, it's an awesome thing, and I think a lot of people are missing out on that these days."
