Shooter, I like shooting with a camera and a firearm. While I am not (yet) a bird hunter, I'm confident that pictures of birds don't taste anything like the real thing. Just like hugging a picture of a tree isn't the same as hugging a real one.
Now if you can just get a duck hunter to hug an actual duck, that might be a sporting challenge!

making the devil's advocate here, since I don't like firearms at all. However most of the people who are anti hunting (I am not) are also meat eater. Frankly I'd rater eat an animal that was hunted down (and therefore had a happy life) rather than one who lived its whole life in a cage. As for me, I am shooting birds with camera and have nice shots of birds with blue beek, but I also like to see them in my plate :/ nobody's perfect :(
