      but what he did was take a fantasy experience and compare it to the actual thing.

      I'm not a hunter with a gun, I am an angler. There is nothing I like better (gawd I'm getting too old!) than stalking wild brooks and browns in crystal clear rivers in the Uintas.

      The fish can see you and they don't want to be caught. It isn't easy, I've crawled on my belly thru tall grass many a time and plotted where I will stand to introduce my lure while trying to use branches as camo. When I am successful and a fish is on I cannot explain what an exhilarating, primal feeling it is.

      I'm a catch and release and hook 'em and cook 'em person. I catch our dinner but keep no more. That, too is something that goes to your core, hunting your meal is deep down in our DNA. What Bruni did was go to a grocery store.

      The choice of a preserve "hunt" as a measure of what it means to hunt, and what hunters are seeking, is worthy of contempt.  That's not the same as hate.  As a minimum, it means that his opinion should be disregarded.
