Bullshit. Firstly, they like the taste of Pigeons, Moose, Deer, Pheasant, etc.; which have not been grown in battery farms and pumped with hormones. Secondly, they like being outdoors and catching their own food. Thirdly, it's good to know how to operate a firearm, who knows when the zombie apocalypse will start? Your fashionable, lefty, soundbites will get you laid, and probably with someone quite attractive; the problem is, you'll have to tolerate her as she changes into a man hating, dungaree wearing, embarassment by middle age. For good measure, she'll probably run off with the Yoga teacher, divorce you, and spend the rest of her life squeezing you for maintenance. All of the above does not apply to fox-hunting, which as practiced by the British, is a sick, sadistic, pointless way to kill an animal.
