Modern hunters are masters of self-deception. They pretend, when they go hunting, to live close to nature like their hunter-gatherer ancestors. They pretend to have a respect for nature, like our hunter-gatherer ancestors. They pretend they are rejecting, at least for the duration of the hunt, the artificial life of modern industrial civilization. However, the truth is that they are not hunting out of necessity like their hunter-gatherer ancestors, but for the pleasure of killing or trophy-collecting. They still make use of the technology of industrial civilization: 4X4 vehicles, high-powered rifles, compound bows, binoculars, camouflaged clothing and so on, all the products of industry. Indeed, it is even called the hunting industry. Usually hunters are aligned on the right of the political spectrum with the accompanying baggage of values. The hunt is seen as a moment of male bonding, although women are sometimes allowed to participate as some kind of honorary male.
