So when those guys in Tas that talked down bowhunters said that "those bowhunter guys aren't really hunters, they are all just wanker poachers in waiting out to maim deer" it was all just no big deal because it was all just about their "personal definition of what a hunter is"? You think the guy is a wanker, so you think it is fine to talk what he did down and disown it as hunting. The anti's think you are a wanker so you must think their campaign to stop you from hunting is okay because it is all about their personal definition of animal cruelty.
When you look at the anti websites you find them quoting hunters talking down other hunters "look even other hunters think they are ********s" and using the quotes as the basis of their appeals to the authorities to restrict YOUR hunting. They use our own disunity as a weapon against us, they don't have to talk down various forms of hunting to make inroads, they can just point to hunters doing that and let the hunters just do all the heavy lifting for them.
