Hunting is a "sport" that involves killing things that are alive for no good reason other than fun. Hence it is a common activity for Pro-life activists. Conservative hunters tend to desecrate the bodies of their hunt, cutting off heads, making jokes about the animals' deaths and generally being unpleasant.
Real hunting is that which is done purely for food and not "sport", people who do this are much more likely to kill the animal in a way which causes the least amount of suffering possible and still displays respect for the animal.
