    Boutique hunting?

    All right chaps, just sit tight and I'll send a couple along to you............

    stills first then video

    It was a confusion of ideas between him and one of the lions he was hunting in Kenya that had caused A. B. Spottsworth to make the obituary column. He thought the lion was dead, and the lion thought it wasn't.

    Does this sort of thing break any rules or is it just looked at as not very sporting?

    Technically yes, will something be done about it probably not.

    Read down the page on the report, you will see 22.3 & 22.4 refer to herding and hazing, which under the heli hunting permit are not allowed.
    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    Yes I agree, but there are certain people who don't give a f*&k how they get their "trophy", as long as they do and then get to rub cocks and egos with their mates.

    Then add in the "buzz" of "tracking the beast down with a hughes before mowing him down" (insert yank accent) and you've got a product to sell. Many rich "hunters" who are insecure about their hunting ability and need a regular ego hit, or have more money than brains lap this sh*t up. Ethics mean nothing to these people, they want the pat on the back, and don't care how they get it.

    Obviously I'm referring only to the guys that do this helihunting and think its ok. I'm not discriminating against rich yanks (or arabs or Asian etc etc), as I know there are a lot of paying hunters from overseas that would always prefer to do a hunt the hard way.

    Yeah you are right. Its sad really. Id rather slog my guts out and sleep well at night knowing the few Chamois and Tahr heads I have in my shed Ive got the old fashioned way. Climb- stalk - shoot - descend.
    I think the animals deserve more respect than to be mowed down in that fashion. Pretty appalling really.

    Bullshit. So sad. Especially on DOC land. I don't see how this is hunting at all. Will be interesting to see govt/DOC follow up with such solid evidence.

    I find it hard two fathom that the pilot or shooters didn't see the 3 people filming them, I think it sums up the brain power of them both, 6 shoots for one thar
    I'm glad i wasn't on that hill I may of done something silly.

    As sad as it is everyone knows it happens. Good on the guys for filming and doing something about it

    Shame the cops can't confiscate the chopper for 28 days then if the fine and storage costs not paid it gets crushed along with the guys license
