    I always thought trophy hunting was horrible (and still feel bad for the animals that get shot, at least a little less) but I guess not. Thank you for all of these facts! It helped me make a good opinion and not feel horrible about something anymore.

    ...and how is this a topic to discussed lightly? What's not discussed here is the psychology of a trophy hunter. Hunting is hunting: kill an animal, eat the meat, use it's parts. Trophy hunting is killing for sport. Period. There is a fundamental flaw in the mental stability of this type of person. If a child kills an animal for no reason, then the parents, teachers etc. are concerned that there is a chemical imbalance or something not right with that child and the issue is addressed by education, therapy, and/or medication. But if an adult kills an animal for no reason it's called trophy hunting.

    Seems pretty simple for rich westerners to, instead, just donate the money to save the animal, than to spend the money / trophy hunt to kill an animal.
    Watched the movie "Trophy"; trophy hunting it is a perpetually flawed design of revenue and sustainability for the animals and African communities.

    What my family will do is we feed the deer in our area to make stronger bucks and does for healthier fawns and we will hunt one buck maybe a doe to keep the population healthy and more food for all the animals out there now there are tons of deer Turkey and coyotes up there we turned a pore ecosystem into a thriving one all because we have a patron for conservation, animals, and hunting.

    Just some facts. Namibia hunting industry was banned and government owned the animals on private land. Farmers (land owners) hated wildlife because they competed with livestock for grazing or ate the livestock. The government implemented ownership of wildlife to the property owners in 1970's and wildlife numbers increased from 500 000 head to 2 000 000 head of animals.
    They are currently trying to implement rural ownership as well hope that program work.
    Botswana generated R2 billion Rands worth of revenue from hunting a year until 2014 since then they stopped hunting. Since the hunting ban the lion population declined by 2500 animals. Due to the fact that they animals is now seen as a pest rather than an asset. They had their first big poaching incident in 20 years where 40 elephants were poached. Because the locals do mot protect them anymore.
    Kenya stoped all trophy hunting in the 1970'S and their animal population declined by 70%.
    Its not just trophy hunting that increase animal numbers but all controlled hunting.
    In all statistics the private land owners with game farms are never considered for conservation. 80% of all animals resided on private land.
    Currently the only option for allot of wildlife is to increase their value wile they are alive.
    The problem with poaching is its uncontrolled and breeding animals especially young females and pregnant females is mostly the victim. With trophy hunting a male is the trophy and usually have little to no influence on the population growth.

    I think people are missing the bigger picture here that goes beyond money from the trophy hunters. It doesn't matter in the end, certain animals will need to be killed due to gene pool issues. When there is a dominant asshole killing off other males constantly, and impregnating females with lack of a diverse gene pool, it is bad when trying to build the population back up. The new members don't get a chance, the gene's stagnate, and the population gets fucked over eventually. So you could do away with the hunters, but you'd still need to kill off select individual animals which would cost money to do. So instead, a guy comes a long and pays YOU an obscene amount of money for a problem that you have with protecting these animals. For example, imagine a tree falls on your house. Thankfully you have insurance, but YOU have to pay money to upkeep the insurance. Now imagine, instead of insurance, some builder comes a long and loves to repairs houses. He comes up to you and you say to the builder," How much am I looking at," and the builder says, "Well based on first glance, I will pay you 350,000 to fix YOUR house." Sounds absurd, but that's basically what is happening with the trophy hunters. And to me that is better than caging up the old, aggressive male for the rest of his life (Which would also cost money to house and feed. And he'd have to be alone for fear of impregnating other females and killing younger males.)

    People who kill things for pleasure are still fucked in the head. There has to be something fundamentally wrong with you to consider ending a life a sport. When kids hurt animals, they're considered psychopathic. Why does that change when people get older and are supposed to learn how to reason?

    Pragmatically the money is very useful, but ethically-speaking, this epitomizes act utilitarianism. If a rich man wanted to hunt a person, and was willing to pay money towards buying starving people food, or in some other way saving lives, would there be an argument that people-hunting is good?

    It's crazy people here are still missing the point that one of the biggest reasons for a most of these endangered species is because of poachers who do illegal hunting killing many animals for money to benefit themselves. While legal hunting is people paying to kill a few animals and the end result is they are helping the local communities.

    Dumbest argument for trophy hunting and one big lie. If it was true all the apex predators would not be severely endangered or on the brink of extinction. Like paying organized crime to keep crime low. It just doesn't work.

    Where I live every fall deer go in season for hunters and it’s a huge source of revenue. Plus since the wolves are no longer in the area which would’ve naturally kept the deer population under control the hunters are now required. Food is scarce over winter and an overpopulation of deer ends up hurting the herd more then a few hunters buying their deer tags and bagging themselves some food for their families.

    I cat believe Adam uses his platform to contribute to killing animals. This is so wrong, as humans we have no rights to be going into their forest, jungles, oceans or anything. We have to let animals live and don't come up with the lame excuse to kill animals. Really hate how ppl in power miss lead the public. trophy hunting sucks you killing wild life.
