But putting two and two together, I think it's quite obvious Hughes didn't go on a journey to the other side of the world just to help out a few of the natives. He went over there to kill for fun.
Being considered a dick and a raging bible thumper does not automatically equate to "killing for fun". It doesn't surprise me that you screwed up adding two and two. You see you missed a vital thing. Where and how he grew up.
He grew up in a rural community on a farm. In almost every rural community in the United States hunting is seen as a perfectly fine hobby. These people tend to be educated about hunting - including more than the how but the why of it. The biggest of these? Not wasting meat.
