It depends on who you are asking; both factually and legally.

For some Native Americans that come from Reservations that have a Treat with the federal govt'; hunting is a right and not a privilege.  The Salish Kootenai Tribe is one prime example.

The remainder of us, it is a privilege.

Interesting question..

Where I lived most of my life (Arizona), hunting is more of a privilege. You are very lucky to find yourself on good hunting grounds..or you have the money to make it happen.

My family and I made the choice to move somewhere that hunting/fishing and access to,  is a right (Montana). But, even here, that right seems to be under attack from people who think they can force their views on us. It is a sad time here. If politicians, and special interest groups have their way here, we will lose that right.

Best regards...shoot straight and vote smart

I'm of the opinion that it is a privilege. Too much land that is "public" is landlocked and a lot of the other land that is private you can't get access to. If you can get access to any of this it is definitely a privilege.
