I'm not sure exactly what you have in mind with the word "legitimate" but there's no moral difference in hunting any kind of animal over another.

The moral question is in destruction of species. So long as there's balance, any animal is huntable.

Guerilla, snow leopards, tigers, chimpanzee, rattle snakes, Dodo birds, passenger pigeons... take your pick.

The trouble is with extermination, not hunting.
