As an avid hunter and biologist myself, I don't see the issue here...these men pay thousands of dollars to hunt exotic game and this money goes to the local conservation agencies as well as the local villages. In most cases, the meat is donated to the villages as well, feeding starving families and children. Before you condem them, take a moment to realize that they are providing just as much, if not more, then they are depriving.

I love the comments that run like this: "hunting with a rifle is easy. anyone can do it."
And the perennial favorite: "It's ok to hunt for food, but if they enjoy it, they are horrible and wrong."

I have no problem with hunting if you are going to use the animal in a meaningful way but one should never take pleasure in killing something.

Make them eat every animal that they kill...I bet that would knock the smiles off of their faces.
Probably not though ....their bloated sense of entitlement probably keeps them giddy all of the time.
I am not opposed to hunting for food.edit on 15-3-2012 by spav5 because: wrong use of since : )

There usually is a list of excuses for the killings.
Money goes back into local community and the animals are bred specifically for hunters.
I think it is excuses. Why can they not just donate to regions like this.It is not as if they are short of money. Why do they feel the need to kill defenseless animals with guns?
I suppose if you are rich enough you can do what you like. I wonder if you had enough money will you be able to pay companies to clone humans so you can then hunt and kill them. If they are simply bred for hunting it would be ok , wouldn't it? people can already pay for whatever new organs they need if they are rich enough.
