Controlled and managed hunting can be very advantageous to our environment. In many areas the balance between predator and prey has been lost from the destruction of the their natural habitat. In those areas it is our responsibility to help manage that balance. Hunters play a vital roll in that management.
Our society is more detached from nature than any society in history. For our distant relatives hunters were a vital part of their existence. They were highly respected for their skill. Without these skilled hunters they were likely to have a very difficult time surviving. Today we have made life much easier. We can run to the grocery for our goods. That's fine but it does not mean we should let those skills disappear forever.
It's unfortunate that in some circles hunting has received a negative image. I support our hunters. I also support having regulations on the impact they have on our wilderness. Wildlife needs to be protected from destructive hunting practices. We only have so much wilderness left and it is one of the highest responsibilities we hold to protect it. Once it's gone it's gone. Every state has laws that govern hunting. I encourage you to support both the hunter and the enforcement of the laws.
