redgreenvines... i see your point, perhaps instead of saying "killing is an important part of human nature" i should have phrased it as "it is important to recognise that killing is a part of human nature" :smile:

why is it an important to recognize that?
how is it even true?

killing is the result of a disease or accident.
while death is part of nature and part of living, and in the case of the stag dying from the hunter, it is part of its contribution to an ecological balance which is really nature.

When an ethnic albanian is hunted and he dies as a result of the hunters actions, it is not an ecological concern, but a disease of society.

you may have a differnt logical problem if you are pressing for killing as part of human nature, while seeking an ethics for hunting.

Our history is full of justifications that are not right and this might be one of them.

the ethics for modern hunting can only be distilled from the ecological perspective.
the modern perspective on killing is that it is a sickness and therefore a medical ethical issue, often complicated with legal and or political ethical ramifications.
