    Roosevelt for one facet of his hunting, I'd wager she doesn't realize her friends also hunt for trophies. What do they do with the antlers, throw them away?

    Hunters and hunting are oversimplified in many peoples minds, and understood only through the context of anti hunting propaganda. Trophy hunters, drunks, extras from the set of Deliverance, dangerous, law breaking, all those stereotypes do nothing to bring together people to common goals.

    What are the common goals of Environmentalists and hunters? Perhaps they overlap less than one might think, especially if one group detests the other.
