Now, here's my take.

As a hunter and fisherman myself, I don't see her doing anything legally wrong.   In fact she has done nothing illegal at all.   She paid her license, the hunt was legal, and I'm sure the government made a nice chunk of change.  So it comes down to morals.

I think the biggest issue here is that she is a young woman who is under fire for doing something that men have done for years.   It's a shock to see a woman standing above her big game kill and excited about it.   That's where the controversy is coming from.
