I can see both sides of the argument. I've heard of hunts having set up dens to encourage foxes to live in the area and feeding them which goes against the argument of pest control. Digging them out when they go to ground also doesn't seem very sporting. I want to go hunting this season, it will be my first time out. I do like the spectacle that hunting Is, the turnout of horse and rider, the ability to ride across the countryside. It's a tough one, I think because I really like foxes, I shoot other animals but foxes are a no. I think I'm just being sentimental. If it was a rabbit being hunted I would say it's nature. Sorry I've gone on a ramble haha. I think there are people on both sides that behave in appalling ways and I hope that is the few rather than the many.
