Who disagrees with hunting for conservation?



  1. 0 Votes

    There are certainly groups who believe that the taking of animal life — even for sustenance — is wrong. I think extreme animal rights activists would probably disagree. I, myself, used to abhor the idea of hunting. However, as I learned more about conservation, I realized that in many ways it’s one of our best options to help preserve some form of balance in ecosystems where we’ve removed top predators. I doubt I’ll ever be able to stomach hunting myself, and I oppose wasteful or wanton hunting, but right now hunting is an excellent avenue to help control, for example, white-tailed deer populations in New England. Or Canada geese populations that may be getting out of hand and eating out the food other waterfowl need. There are certainly groups that disagree with hunting for moral reasons, but I suspect most of them are not actually experienced in the world of wildlife management.
