I used to hunt a lot. I enjoyed it because of the people around me -- my dad, uncles, cousins, and friends. Great stories are still told at family gatherings.
I hunted quail, pheasant, duck, geese and doves -- no deer and very little dove -- I don't care for taste of either -- no matter how imaginative the person cooking it makes it.
I was taught to only kill what you could eat -- nothing more.
Many people forget that part of today's hunting is conservation meant to control the amount of wildlife. Overpopulation for some animals like deer cause problems in our environment. In the past without conservation many of the species were completely eradicated -- however, through conservation many of species have been brought back to places of their natural habitat.
Most US states have very good rules regarding hunting and most people abide by those laws. Google the conservation department of your own state to find out more information.
One more comment, if you like to hunt for the pleasure of just killing something ... I suggest you check out trap shooting or make a visit to your local mental health facility.
