    Getting a thrill out of killing something for sport is sick. If you merely enjoy the hunt, then photographing them should be just as satisfying.

    "And saying that "rare" species like Leopards are more valuable than "common" animals like Chickens is kind of... racist." That's just a stupid statement. Chickens are products of humans. We made them and they live in artificial environments that don't have the effect of say wolves on an environment. One reason for preserving species is because no species is an island unto itself. The loss of a species or more than one species, effects the ecosystem it lives in and causes a domino effect. The loss of chickens wouldn't have such a profound impact on any ecosystem. Let me give you an example.

    When wolves were reintroduced to Yellowstone National Park in the United States in the mid-1990s, after being absent nearly 70 years, the most remarkable “trophic cascade” occurred, effecting hundreds of other species.

    Gary Wockner, a wolf expert in Colorado explained, “Willows grew higher and spread more widely, beavers returned and made ponds, riparian-dwelling plants and animals returned including songbirds and trout, elk carrion fed scavengers such as grizzlies and ravens, and coyote populations dropped resulting in more ground squirrels and gophers which in turn fed hawks and eagles.”

    The species remix that was created by wolves has also changed the rivers in the park.

    Yes ?

    No ?

    * Degenerates At Large *


    This one should register as a big game hunter and , because of the types of animals killed , get on the list of available big game hunter targets that only other big game hunters can shoot , where once one shoots another big game hunter , the big game hunter is added to the list of available big game hunter targets ,

    I have done plenty of hunting in my lifetime but will never understand how someone could pull the trigger on that animal.

    Oh there is a lot of logic in the OP. Don't worry about chickens or big game. Put your bet on your favorite of two hunters.

    Given the propensity of more than a few people and probably many , one might imagine the number of lunatics who register for the thrill of killing and not being prosecuted , even though they could potentially be killed themselves .
    I am guessing you're right. Who could pass up a chance of free kills with a minor downside.

    As long as they call themselves big game hunter hunters, I'm fine with it.

    The ones that are really enthusiastic about pursuing the hobby can say "I'm a big big game hunter hunter."
    Thanks from Minotaur

    Now, there are hunters who trophy hunt, but not everyone. Believe it or not, many hunters disagree with killing non game animals and many hunters will not go on canned hunts.

    Not all hunters are the same. I only kill what I eat. Not for a rug, a pelt, or a mount
    Being raised in the foothills of Virginia, if we got hungry something died. Fast food was hitting a 'possum at 60 mile per hour. But what constantly was drilled into me was--if ya ain't gonna eat it, don't kill it.
