In an era of high-powered rifles, infrared scopes, specialized ammo, GPS, ATVs, and even now scout drones, hunting is now more about Nature.

Most of the time it's a way for a bunch of bros to have a bro time without having to say "no homo"

I don't hunt, but if I ever felt incline to do so, it would absolutely about dominance. We are the dominant species, I fail to see a problem with exercising our dominance.

All I use is a bow and arrow and a trail cam in the way of gadgets

Hunting for sport has always been about dominance.

skip all the gadgets and just enjoy being out there. It's actually quite relaxing.

I don't use that fancy stuff. Only an old fashioned hunting rifle.

I like hunting and do it as a hobby, I don't go out with high powered guns and gadgets even though I own them. It's a sport and requires restraint to stay challenging and fun

Hunting is my family's primary food source. I don't have all the gadgets ( I have a few ) but I don't hate those who do.

Dominance, but only by those hunters that choose to use all that extra crap!

Feeding my family is the only reason I hunt.

Poor choices. Hunting like baseball, football, surfing, golfing or any activity is what you make it. Most hunters can't afford or even want all the newest toys...

Funny how many of those items are built in your own backyard, suppressed.

I think that's all cheating. It's not even sport at that point. Humans are basically Predator.

If I was ever to hunt, which I have zero interest in, it'd be with a bow and on foot. Everything else is pussy shit.

Sometimes, you say things that I really really like.

This is one of those times.

For a hunter, all those things are just tools. They just make it easier to get food.

There is a tool involved, but it's on the stock side of the gun.

Every hunter? No.
Don't try to put words in my mouth.

What would you have me assume?

Look at the qualifiers in the question.
That's why they're there.

How is hunting ever about communing with nature?

It's what I've been told - repeatedly - by hunters.

Do they ever really explain what they mean?

How it puts them outdoors and they get in touch with their primal/pioneer roots.

I still don't understand how that is *communing with* nature. It still sounds like dominating over it to me, but whatever.

I'd rather see us dominate over rats, roaches and mosquito's, than lions.

I eat everything I kill. And I even bow hunt. I hunt legally and fairly. And I never go over my bag limit.

The people I know who hunt (deer, hog, turkey etc) do it legally in the U.S. and eat the meat of what they kill! They don't use GPS, ATVs, etc.. Some even use bows still.

The more we become dominant over nature, the more we rely on nature.

It depends. If you are using all (or some) of the things listed, its dominance. However, just because they exist doesn't mean you have to use them, and even if you do it can still be communing with nature.
