I am not a believer in hunting and I’m surprised that like it.” Right after the publicizing of hunting photos, they were immediately criticized by PETA and other conservation groups.
In spite of several outrageous reactions, Trump Jr. confronted to The New York Times saying, “There were people who I didn’t know who were hunters. And, from that perspective, I get invited (to hunt) a lot. Too much of hunting has turned into the notion of the kill. He added, “It’s a component, the meat. But so much is experiential, so much is relationships. It is sitting in a duck blind with seven people, cooking breakfast. For me, it’s best a great way to see the world. The least interesting part is the three seconds it takes to pull the trigger.”
