In the majority of hunting situations, time to get a shot off is SHORT.
I'm fine with the name Hunter Class, in fact embrace it, but reducing the time limit by half would more accurately reflect hunter (lower case) reality. Then I'd have no problem with Hunter Class shooters using whatever scope they like, bracketing, prone, etc.; but I suspect they would lose some points to the timer, just as they'd lose some shot opportunities in the hunting fields.
BTW, in my opinion though the terms debate and argue may be mostly synonymous, I think what we're doing is debate.
And FWIW, I'm 100% with you as pertains "tactical" bulls***. As far as I'm concerned, "tactical" belongs in the same file as "high tech" and "progressive", that being File 13!
