Without hunting of certain animals the population would explode then many of the animals would starve to death while suffering from a severe disease outbreak from overcrowding. Worst yet with no hunting some farmers would have to resort to using poison bait and traps that mutilate animals or an unfortunate human being. Animals threaten human existance when they are over populated because they become extremely aggressive by entering neighborhoods and eating children, dogs, cats, and residential crops. Do not believe me do a internet search of "when animals attack" or "wild hogs in south Florida" or "black bears in the city and suburbs".
Hunting provides food to individuals who may otherwise have no food to eat especially during the winter when the ground can not produce any food. Hunting keeps the forest parks and other public nature parks safe for humans to roam without being mawled to death by a bear or gored to death by a buck's (bull, mule, or male deer) antlers. Granted people still do occasionally get attacked by animals in parks by bears it would occur much more often with a higher and broader animal population. The need for greater control of the animal population is becoming very clear with bears showing up far beyond normal habitats due to over populated territories along with enviromental stressors of wild fires and poor levels of precipatation in recent years.
Still do not believe in hunting try feeding a bear to make it leave you alone and your pets, children, or neighbors... no do not do that because it will one day resort to eating / attacking you since you have taught the bear you are the bringer / source of food and will mistake you for a piece of grub when delusionally hungry.
Deer also suffer when the population gets too big for their environment, then suffer starvation, disease, reduced herd size, and / or local population reaches zero at worst case scenario. They usually end up starving to death from inadequate food sources whether from drought after plenty or just because they are not hunted frequently enough. Fortunately, around the areas I have been it happens about once every decade or two; however, some areas are lacking deer from starvation have simply stayed sparse and agressive towards people (mainly bucks using there antlers as thrashing and charging). Some ae lucky and live on animal reserves and get corn or acorns, etcetera to keep from starving to support the population before transfer or relocation to an area without deer for repopulation and / or genetic diversity.
Truth be known, the various native tribes were almost the sole means of maintaining buffalo, deer, and bears at sustainable levels where wolves, mountain lions, cougars, and other various wild cats do not roam for a multitude of reasons. Buffalo are not legal to shoot or otherwise hunt. All hunting requires a license and limits on particular animals and some form of enforcement to prevent poaching or out of season shooting for ensuring continued survival of the species.
Deer and other wild game live a better life than livestock since they get to breed and roam freely especially with the help of controlled hunting. Additionally, some individuals would have no food for winter without being able to hunt deer and moose. Think of the children starving because of no hunting and the deer or moose starving from over population.
Also for the record I am against atrocities such as clubbing of seals for their fur or hides because of the brutality which is simply inhumane especially since the meat is thrown away and is a means violence on a precious creature for only fur. I do not believe in shooting or killing animals for trophies or bragging rights especialy if you do not eat it or offer it to less fortunate people who would otherwise have nothing to eat.
