I don't have a problem with leather. The cattle are killed for meat and the skins are used for leather, it would be wasteful not to use the skins. Native Americans used everything that came from their kills and wasted nothing.
I dislike modern hunters who only want a mount for their walls. I hunt but my boyfriend and I eat the kills and save the skins to give to the local tribal craftsmen.
