Wouldn't surprise me.
The thing is, the PM convention isn't a contest. There is no "organized" hunt, and no contest. They have raffles, a banquet, shooting contest, etc. But the hunting is done outside of the convention. The members get together and go hunt. No different than what guys do every weekend, it's just more of them at one time(spending lots of money in the city/county while they're here, mind you).
"A man may not care for golf and still be human, but the man who does not like to see, hunt, photograph or otherwise outwit birds or animals is hardly normal. He is supercivilized, and I for one do not know how to deal with him." Aldo Leopold
