good morning. there is a yearly duck-themed painting contest run by the federal government that is very prestigious and wildlife painters are upset because the trump administration added a new rule that the duck paintings MUST include hunting elements(!!!) https://www.nytimes.com/2020/10/13/us/duck-stamp-contest-hunting.html?surface=most-popular&fellback=false&req_id=306822616&algo=bandit-all-surfaces&imp_id=504866578&action=click&module=Most%20Popular&pgtype=Homepage
i believe that hunting and conservation can be complementary but "take only pictures, leave only footprints" should really be an ideal even when you're on a hunt for a particular game bird. i do prefer to eat what's hunted though, sport hunting is a little weird
