Again, thoughtful/thinking, educated and well informed people, learn that hunting in many cases, helps check over-populations of wildlife that in some geographic locations have lost (due to human population growth and development) what would otherwise be natural checks to their populations, such as food supplies and predators.

Those who are strictly against hunting as being cruel to animals, do not seem to want to consider how it might also be as cruel or more cruel to condemn animals to starvation when their populations explode to the point disease and other downsides of too many, begin to kill. For some, a deer in the deep freezer makes some economic sense (versus the cost of hunting licenses/tags + hunting tools/gear (including bows, firearms, etc)) and it also makes use of an animal that might not otherwise be consumed.

Trophy hunting, especially of creatures that are close to being endangered (because of hunting/poaching or human encroachments on their natural territories) where most of the animal may not be used to feed anyone anything, but the soil appears to largely have no purpose other than to display human power over wildlife, which should already seem obvious and to a point that has been tragic for some animals, almost tragic for others (Passenger pigeons, Beaver and North American Bison to name only a few). Even examples of animals being totally pushed out of their natural historical territories by competition with humans and animals domesticated by humans (say cattle and sheep) causes controversy over which should take precedence and striking some sort of balance.

What one might consider in the spirit of the OP and humans hunting either other humans or animals, as trophies, is "culling" human populations in keeping with our discovered need to "cull" wild animals to keep their populations in check.

I don't believe I will see a lot of hands raised in consideration of culling human populations in the same way and for the same purposes we have found or give for culling populations of wild animals, ironically, in some cases because we were responsible for their populations growing to naturally unsustainable levels or responsible for encroaching on where they have always existed.
