I know this is true from experience - well, half of it
anyway, i.e., that a good hunter will hunt even if well fed.

We feed our cat as much as she wishes (canned food twice a
day, and kibble at will) and she hunts all day long with
great dedication and skill, and kills many voles and mice.  

She brings all her catches home and leaves them on the front
porch:  that's how we know she kills so many.  She would
rather bring them inside the house, but has resigned herself
to the fact that we don't allow this.  She does not eat her
catches, except for the very occasional nibble.
