Could Suburban America Actually Appreciate Hunting?

We all know hunting isn't always viewed favorably across America, especially in urban and suburban regions where our pastime may be considered anachronistic by some, and perhaps merely a necessary evil by others. So I was happy to see this cooler in my local grocery store recently, in Fairfax, Va., a 400-square-mile county of a million inhabitants. I'm sure most of them don't hunt, but I do, thus I was happy to see hunting mentioned here. Note the message: Dry ice is good for preserving game. I agree. I also agree it's nice to see a message in suburban America that puts hunting in a positive light. The take-home message for anyone in suburban America who reads the cooler: Hunting is alive and well, folks. This is proof.
