I tend to agree with most of NanookOdaNorth's stump speech. As hunters we provide a great service to the state and the animals of the state that many non hunters just don't understand and the anti hunters don't want them to understand. The sad part is there are still hunters among us that really don't get that part ether. Some get it when it is presented like Nanook put it about a farm he hunts, but IMHO too many don't get it when we talk about our State forest, State Game Lands, and some State Parks. They also only have a limited supply of food for all animals, and no animal is more important than the next. The people that manage these pieces of "public land" are just like the farmers that need help to keep the balance.
The other thing that I see is that somehow many hunters have forgotten or never were informed that as hunters we are ONLY allowed to take from the excess that nature provides and leaves us. There is a point when it stops being hunting and becomes animal husbandry. Waugh!
