Hubby and I hunt. Elk and deer. Hubby used to contract with the local BLM for varmint control. We also fish. We eat what we kill. We have the evil mounted heads in our home and *gasp* even fish mounted.
Hubby used to do the varmint control for the ranchers and BLM because of the damage that beavers, badgers, prairie dogs, coyotes, etc. do to the stock and property. Humans have managed to wipe out most of the natural predators. No predators means starvation and disease for the animals.
BUT we also own guns because we enjoy shooting and competition. (Usually with each other.)
