I feel it would be waterfowl hunters with landowners.
 
Driving in muddy fields pulling trailers, bringing 15guys out, leaving 4 cases of empty hulls in the field.  As a whole they seem to be the most disrespectful to the great land they hunt.

Boy this will start some discussion! The one here in Michigan that stirs up conversation are any kind of houndsmen. I have no problem with them, but I hear a lot about them.

Deer since I think there are more of us, so thus more exposure to scrutiny ....JMO

I think some negative aspects of deer hunting probably get more face time with the press and the anti's.  I may be wrong, but assume it's the most popular of the groups listed above.  By shear volume of people involved, there are more opportunities for negative stories to come to light.
 
Border battles, cutting down each others treestands, stealing trail cameras, shooting at other hunters (accidental and intentional), landowner disputes, trespassing are just a few that come to mind.

I have to agree with this, and for the same reason.
Hunt Hard,

Kill Swiftly,

Waste Nothing,

Offer No Apologies.....

I voted for Deer Hunters.  Mainly because they get caught the most.  Why, because of their blaze orange.  Most of the rules aren't read by all of the hunters, causing for more complications.

I've never had an issue with an upland game hunter, or a turkey hunter.  However, I think some people get desperate, and do stupid things that hunters get a bad rep either way.

Can you add coon hunters? 

So let me get this straight:  You've got a sport where you allow a bunch of guys to go running through everyone else's woods in the middle of the night with dogs, and flashlights and guns, firing into the air. Then they can drive anywhere anytime and all they have to say is that they're coon hunters and they're looking for lost dogs. 

Personally I have no big thing against the sport.  It's just that nearly every time I get a call from the sheriff, it's because somebody has backed a truck up to my barns in the dead of night and been caught by a neighbor. By the time it all gets sorted out-- no, it wasn't burglars. It was coon hunters.

Yep, my vote goes to coon hunters.
