I agree that hunting is not more sustainable in every case. If you live in a city it is much more sustainable to have a plant-based diet.

If you lived North of the Arctic circle (or a similarly cold place) it would be impossible to survive on local vegetables. If you lived in the desert it would also probably be impossible. In this case, which is more favorable? Importing food across hundreds (sometimes thousands) of miles or hunting?

Who specifically are the monks that you speak of? Is there any environmental history I can read concerning their dietary and agricultural practices?

Just ask me. I've lived off the land as a vegan for more than a decade.

If everyone hunted to survive, there would be no wildlife to hunt. The only reason the swarms of hunters here have anything left to shoot is because the gov breeds and releases dopey tame game for them every hunting season. Fed on cultivated grain that would be better served feeding people.
