I don't hunt, although I own lots of guns. I am too sentimental to
kill animals for sport, although I am far from a vegetarian. I like birds,
I like birding, and I like birders. There are times however, when some of
my birding friends get a bit sanctimonious and, dare I say it, elitist when
discussing the one class of people in this country who have contributed the
most to wildlife conservation.
I can live with contradictions.
