The small percentage who hunt can make a great difference to the result
of any election. Given that is usually only a percentage or three
between the major parties a group that might represent 10% of the vote
cannot be ignored. Hunters are unusually passionate about their
'calling' and any politician or party who 'ripped from them their
traditional way of life' will be in for a fight.

Still the arguments against hunting are persuasive on conservation
grounds, and, to a lesser degree, animal rights concerns.

Perhaps the labor party could introduce a ban a few months out from an
unwinnable election?

ciao for now
