Perhaps it is merely my personal experience, but the anti-hunters I’ve met tend to be people who have lived in cities and densely packed suburbs their entire lives, who have little to no real grasp of conservation or ecological balance.

Many of the suburbanites around the nation’s capitol seemed to harbor this naive view until the exploding deer population became a serious ecological and safety problem.
