Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There is a pro-hunting party/movement, which is usually more present during local and European elections, and fighting mainly against EU regulations limiting hunting season dates. It's a yearly fight in Southern France, as hunters and bird-protection militants square off on the days before the hunting season officially opens.

The CPNT movement ("hunting, fishing, nature & tradition") movement have gotten a few percent of the votes (up to almost 7% in 1999, when they gained 6 MEPs, and 4% at the 2002 presidential election), so not insignificant.

They are classified as right-populist.
