You're absolutely correct. It is thru hunting that healthy game animal populations are effectively managed. Not to mention the revenue generated thru licensing, tax on gear, etc.
I forget which magazine it was, but I once read what was a fitting description of the rabid anti-hunters....(paraphrased, as I can't remember exactly):
"They (anti's) seem to think it inhumane that hunting is used to manage animal populations, from taking of game for the dinner table, to predator control to ensure proper balance. It's as if they believe that in the wild, animals die with their head on a feathery pillow, fading away as a crescendo of violins plays from the heavens....rather than from having had their throat ripped out by a mountain lion or pack of coyotes."
