The unkindness of essays

Document Actions

As a hunter and conservationist, I found your essay "The Kindness of Hunters" insulting, naive and decidedly inappropriate for a publication trying to advance the case of conservation in the West (HCN, 11/9/09). Hunters are somewhat used to being caricatured as a bunch of bloodthirsty bubbas, but this is the first time I recall us being characterized as some sort of sinister terrorist class. It hit a new low.
