Embedding is disabled so you have to watch on youtube.
You may think a different way if you watch the 60 minutes video.

Hunting animals as a means to save them? It didn't work too good for dodo birds and carrier pigeons. It's not working well with Rhinos and Hippos.

poaching is illegal and sinful, But legal hunting is good both for man and animal. An example how it benefits animals, in 2000 I lived in Monterey Calif, it was a safety zone for all animals because of this the number of deer was so high they had periods of time when disease would overtake the herds. Here in Texas where I live know there are so many deer that about half the deer population self aborts every year because there are more deer then resources, and out here there are hundreds of thousands of acres unused land, the deer problem is not man it is over population. Lets talk rabbits, they have upwards to 6-8 per litter, 2-3 times a year, see we humans also need space and ability to grow foods if we don't control it can devastate humans lifely hoods.

I believe that most of you are making uneducated emotional decisions.
I beg you to watch and then discuss your displeasure if it still exists.

I think if you think about the question then the answer, possibly yes.

If you give the endangered animal a value by hunting to the people who live in that area then it is in their interest to ensure it survives.

My question is why hunting? Why not shoot the animal with a camera. Tourism.

I think there is room here on earth for both hunting and scenic wildlife tours.

Hunting isn't going anywhere so I tend to agree with you. If they are extinct in there natural habitat, but thriving only on a hunting preserve, then how can you argue with that?

I don't think there is a choice unless you want the animals to vanish off the face of the earth.

If they are animals that are almost extinct because of man hunting them, you keep them on an endangered list and make it legal to hunt & kill poachers.

If they are almost extinct because of a NATURAL issue like they are too stupid to reproduce or whatever the reason then let them die off like the Dodo.

I hate when we intervene in nature and try to fix her "mistakes".

Isn't hunting by man sometimes what causes endangered species to become endangered? If I recall, the American Bison/Buffalo almost went extinct from being overhunted by American settlers. So if a species is endangered and you start killing it off more? Doesn't seem logical to me.

Many animal are endangered (not all) because those evil poachers some are) need to feed their families in the short term and recieve very little for the animals they kill. ie Rhino horns.

If you make those animals more valuable alive to the poacher who needs to provide for his family he is likely to become a game warden.

I watched a recent hunting show where they were hunting in Argentina and they went out of their way to shoot what they termed assassin deer. They have points on their antlers that when during mating fight would cause nasty injuries to the other deer. The ranch is trying to remove said characteristic from the gene pool by leading hunters to those types of deer. Makes sense when you think about it and not go knee jerk.

Imo The new federal law going into effect soon seems to me to be a knee jerk power grab.
The horned oryx was saved from extinction by hunters in texas and this law will bring them one step closer to extinction.
If anyone has any info on this law they speak of in the video please share as i'm not finding anything yet.

Would you be so kind as to give a summary of the video for those that dont have time to watch it and for those with limited bandwidth... Then I will be able to pass comment.

I think that the title should be changed. From watching the video in the first few minutes I see that these hunting preserves keep some species that are hard to find in the wild or even are scarce in the wild and whatever they are doing is helping populations of said species multiply. these preserves know how to keep a population going.

But to address the op directly, NO, I do not think that hurting endangered species helps them.

No that was not hunters it was the murderous government at the time that put a bounty on them.They figured that they could hurt the indians by removing their food supply.
