There is a very real line that can be drawn between "hunters of food" and "trophy hunters."
And it's not some easily moving line, it's pretty well known and defined out here where I roam.
There are people that come from hundreds, if not thousands of miles away, to do just that.... try and show the other man that you are better,
taxidermy said head and mount it on a wall in your library - den, whatever. They pay to play.
Woo woo, look at that rack.
Those people are what I like to call "head hunters."
I'd like to think that they have no reason to be doing such things, other than for personal gain... it's simply machismo. Its kinda like... "Hey look
what I did." It's simply one-upmanship, or a status figure thought.
Now it's a totally different aspect to have the need
to hunt game to survive, and that is subsistence hunting.
While I don't hunt big (or any) game, I know plenty of people that do.. and it is only a sport to them.
None of them have any meat in the freezer.
