Where is the line to be drawn? Admittedly, there are people who hunt who shouldn't, because it is to them a mindless indulgence. It can also be a truly infatuating pleasure, but that, too, is insufficient reason. If hunting isn't of a piece with the rest of your life, or isn't proper to the environment and conditions of your life, or if you do not care enough to hunt alone, without aids, learning to be in the woods and studying the biology of the animal you seek, or if you do not know how to kill decently and clean and preserve and use your meat, if you do not have the energy and curiosity and desire to hunt in this way, you shouldn't hunt. If you want anything at all except the mysterious presence and connection and inexhaustible study of the woods, stay out of them. Drasnin's program will have been useful if it has shamed individual hunters who ought to stay home, if it deprives them of the sense they seem to have of being supported and encouraged by their society in their shabby attitudes. Or if it makes them say, "I'm not like that," and makes them set out to prove it.
