True, the majority of American are still not opposed to hunting, even if most don't hunt anymore. But the question is - for how long will these majority not be opposed to hunting? Just observe the ideals and philosophies being forced on our youth today by the liberal media, publications, and by school teachers. I'm amazed as to how many younger vegans and animal rights activists I come across these days and how much more of that is being encouraged and depicted in tv shows and movies. I'm talking school age kids here, something like 10 year old kids making their own decisions to become vegans based on animal rights philosophies. It's even hard to find people from my generation who hunt or are at least not opposed to it. Just as hard to find people my age who've even shot a firearm before and I'm just under 40. What will the youth of today be like when they reach my age now? What things will they be ademently opposed to that we enjoy today?
I'm even finding in my state that some of our State Wildlife Areas that were traditionally used for hunting and paid for by hunters and anglers are now more suitable for joggers, bird watchers, and dog walkers than they are for hunting due to the amount of development going on around them. Some of these areas have been taken completely over by non-hunting nearby residence for other recreational uses, making hunting and fishing in these areas very difficult if not impossible. And these new users seem to think they have more rights on those lands than hunters do.
