But since he is a coward and feels he needs a gun to take down a deer he disgusts me. How To Talk To A Hunter: Personally, I've never had the extreme anger that some people in the animal movement have towards hunters.

All that you can really do about that to make yourself feel better is to understand that it's what he's grown up with and into. You have no idea how good it feels to get a little support about this!

He has a choice about his actions, but he's living in a sick culture in which it is considered acceptable and natural to hunt. None of my friends and family understand and they all think that my asking him to stop would be inconsiderate, but there's nothing wrong in his asking me to be ok with his hunting.
