Re: subsistence or sport?
Im sure theres a ton of literature on Claude Dallas in Oregon, Nevada and Idaho.
He was a subsistance hunter/trapper in desert, and ranch country, who didnt feel it was nescisary to stay current on permits/tags. He just wanted to live off the land, and be left alone. When the game warden came to "check things out"..... well things went very very bad very very quick.
He's a local ledgend and hero to some, and a cop killer to others, but either way, it may tie into your story.
No one I know would condone what happened. It wasnt a good ending for anyone involved. Nor would anyone I know purposefully put thier self in that position. But you make up your own mind about him, and what happened, and why it happened.
Now back on topic, normal behavior for myself and most others I know is exactly as Bigngreen described. He nailed it as far as what category most of us fall into.
Sounds like an interesting, and somewhat controvercial paper. Difficult to write for something that sounds so cut and dried huh. Alot deeper than it sounds on the surface, or in casual conversation. Good luck I hope you ACE it.
UAF? Just wondering
