I very much agree with this perspective, but the population of deer is the first thing that comes to my mind when I am being convinced of the drawbacks of hunting. Without it, the deer population would be off the charts! Hunting is controlling the population so it doesn't grow beyond ours. To add, I am into the country lifestyle for 99% of the time. The one thing I can't do, and don't think I ever will be able to do, is gut a deer. I cannot stand the sight of blood, and to see the insides of such a poor creature, that's where I draw the line. Just the thought of it makes me sick to my stomach, and that is the only negative to hunting, in my opinion. Other than that, I believe hunting is a great part of the fall spirit!
