Hunters Were Early Protectors Of The Planet

"Leopold's ideas are revered by legions of earth-firsters, but many don't know their icon was a lifelong hunter. Nor is it generally acknowledged who was trying to save parts of the planet a century before Earth Day was invented."

Contrary to the views of much of the media and hard-core tree-huggin fish kissers, hunters were the first conservationists. Interestingly, cooperation between hunting groups and organizations like Sierra Club are making for strange bedfellows.
