Got a response from the Buffalo conservation group:
"I’m not sure if you wanted a response to this or not- it seemed like you were mostly wanting to express your anger about our choices. However in the event that you were interested in some kind of dialogue, i thought i’d take a minute to reply. It doesnt really matter to me whether you read it, consider it, or throw it away.
Perhaps you misunderstood: We are not, and have never claimed to be, an anti-hunting or animal rights group. Quite a few of us are hunters and feel that living off the native wildlife in a respectful way is what makes sense in this ecosystem. We oppose the bison hunt because they are not given the habitat, the freedom and the respect that other wild ungulates experience. Our message has always been that bison should roam the landscape as they once did, and humans should find a sustainable and respectful way to co-exist with them, which includes hunting and using their resources as the native people once did.
So, i don’t know if we’re any more or less hypocritical than anyone else ( as any belief system could be broken down into hypocrisy), but, clearly, if you are an avid anti-hunter and cannot be around people who think differently, then this is not the right the place for you.
Good luck in finding that place,”
I’m pretty sure you can’t respectfully use someone, but hey, all belief systems can be broken down into hypocrisy so why complain? I left a snarky response and was subsequently added to their spam folder. Stay away from the Buffalo Field Campaign. They are a group of hunters who are only rescuing buffalo so they have more variety of animals to shoot
Many hunters actually consider themselves to be avid environmentalists! The fact that they keep prey populations unnaturally high by limiting predator species, thus completely disrupting anything resembling a natural ecosystem, doesn’t seem to factor in.
