    Gotta ask, what joy is there had to be in shoot endangered animals?

    I don't mind trophy hunting when it comes to invasive species, provided you actually hunt not just chase them down in a helicopter.
    But I don't get it when it comes to endangered or at risk species.

    I wouldn't know. Nothing I shot was endangered. Everything was managed by an biologist so they can tell have many to shoot, one animals to shoot to make it a stronger and healthier ecosystem taking our older animals pushed out from the herd etc.

    Its pretty interesting stuff. Probley better to learn about it than listen to the sheep tho hey

    Thank you for explaining. I asked that question 25 years ago when I met a guy who had shot an elephant.

    Exact same scenario - animal management - and the fee paid goes to protecting the herd.
    In a civilized and cultivated country, wild animals only continue to exist at all when conserved by the sportsman. The excellent people who protest against all hunting, and consider sportsmen as enemies of wildlife are wholly ignorant of the fact that in reality the genuine sportsman is by all odds the most important factor in keeping wild creatures from total extinction.

    What makes you think I'm a sheep?
    I know how it works, how each animals is selected and in many cases was likely going to die anyway but that's not what I asked.
    I've been to Canada a few times and seen some awesome animals in some amazing places, but never once have I though I wanted to shoot them.
    If I ever get to Africa I imagine it'd be much the same.

    What is the appeal in shooting these animals? It's not like the are a pest or introduced species, or there numbers are such they need to controlled.
    I'm not here telling you your an arsehole for shooting them, genuinely interested in why you would want to?

    Not feelin' the love here fellas.

    I shot lots of animals in the 12 years I lived in Africa. Many of which I ate with a big satisfied grin. Some of which others ate with an even bigger grin, and occasionally shared with me! Some were pests that I wouldn't want to eat in a million fuckin years. But none I shot were interested in maybe eating me, just the way I roll... that's camera time.

    Nor do I have a single "trophy" from that time.

    The rifle isn't my scene but its a for sale ad not a discourse on conservation hunting dollars surely?
