As an Englishman I could take exception to that; I can't abide tea.
OD can keep hunting for me, though.
The difference between our lands is considerable, as are the differences in culture. While I dislike the English manner of 'hunting' I don't have a problem with shooting for the pot (rabbits and pigeons here, wild deer, moose etc where they are native) though I am not so sure about 'preserving' game or fowl simply to provide targets.
Perhaps the two activities are sufficiently disparate for a new term to be used: I would suggest that the English term be riding to hounds (or something similar) as the term hunting is appropriate to the American activity, while it is less and less applicable over here.
