"Ya gotta start with the fundamentals."
I look at it this way. There are individual ethics and there are laws that apply to all. Sounds like the DNR is attempting to do a reasonable job of both allowing the population to expand without fully expanding in an uncontrolled or unmitigated manner. They are both working to help the population and at the same time help allow people to feel like the population isn't being thrust upon them as fearsome killing machines.
If you don't want to hunt them, that is your call. I certainly don't, would not recreationally, but limited predation on the population is part of the process of re-establishing in some areas and allowing to be maintained or grow in others.
For lack of a better comparison, think of it as a controlled burn that is used to help keep a forest or prairie healthy.
