In New York State I would venture to say it's deer hunting.  Nothing else seems to cause near as much controversy.  Always deer hunting accidents, trespassers, poachers.  Not to mention deceased deer in less than a state of glory tied onto a vehicle.  I'm lucky that I have a large pickup with a cap and I place them inside on a piece of cardboard.  I can remember taking a 7 point to the butcher a good number of years ago when my children were young and I had an SUV.  The buck was on top tied to the rack.  A car next to me beeped its horn to get my attention and as I looked 4-5 East Indian females all popped me 'the bird' and sped off.  I can't honestly say that it didn't sour my mood for a short while.

I would say deer hunters only because of the popularity of the sport. I don't know how it is where you guys live but here a good buck makes the local papers and those pictures are not always edited as they should be. I can't think of any other animals that get the same coverage locally.

i think it is not what you hunt but how you hunt them
one of my friends got his first buck by shining fields and shooting it
thats not me i got my two deer the true way i worked hard for them and shot them with fair chase
i thinbk the way u hunt them is how it defines your charcter as a hunter

I voted hound hunters just because they always seem to be running their dogs through everybodies property and never seem to care when they cross property lines.

Most certainly in my area anyway deer hunters are #1, you have to be a relative to hunt anywhere in the area!!! Alot of what we call (CIT-IOTS) come from the city,buy 50 acres & just live there. Won't even let you walk the bush for sheds, I don't understand. Happy hunting...
Deer Hunting is a privlilege, don't abuse it !!!
