Fair enough in the entirety of the overall view of the World, "Bruce".

But lets get back to the original title of this thread:

Time for hunters and Fisherman to stop patronizing Delta airlines

staying on that point and not straying to the various spins and tangents that have popped up......
I cant fix the entire worlds' problems. But I can stand up for what I believe in.... one small item at a time.

The man killed the lion for the SOLE PURPOSE of putting its head on his wall.... and left the carcass to rot. That is NOT "harvesting".
IF the lion was butchered and people actually ate it, that would be a different scenario and receive a different response from me.

PS: Yes. People are whack. The entire World is whack.
I get it Wils, but the hype on this is just stupid.

Selective Moral Outrage.

Boo F'ing who, he killed a lion to hang the on his wall. Shit, Airlines better stop flying bear heads/skulls and skins home from Alaska, because they do the same in Alsaka. Shoot the bear, skin it, and leave the meat. Its the norm, and its legal.

more humane to die by a hunter than waste away by starvation or die off in the winter
What is best for the wild kingdom is beyond your comprehension. Your attempt to justify big game African trophy hunting in this day and age as a noble humanitarian service is a half baked sophomoric excuse for greed and only serves to perpetuate all of the inhumane behavior that defines Mugabe himself. Hunting Lions and elephants for sport is not sustainable.

I was talking about the old and yes their are plenty of trophy animals to sustain this in some areas........they also help rid the villagers of animals that destroy crops and their villages.

Ever see Shockeys Uncharted?
It may open your eyes.....he goes in and films in remote villages all over the world it gives you an understanding how the third world lives and how dangerous game and hunting plays a huge role there.

This is really very straightforward, and trophy hunting isn't the issue:

Killing lions isn't my cup of tea. Hell, I've never even shot coyotes, 'cause I choose to eat what I kill. But unless US laws were broken then leave the guy alone and shut up. Or, if you feel strongly about it, actually use your liberty to get off your butt and go do some work to change the laws (like we need more of them, but knock yourself out!).

This is still the land of freedom. Where you draw your moral and ethical boundaries are almost sure to be different from where I draw mine. If together we decide that some activity is an undue strain on a resource, or so universally reprehensible that it should not be allowed, then we change the laws and move forward as such. But otherwise, the agreement is that you can pursue your happiness, and I can pursue mine, without fear of undue punishment.

But just because you do not agree with trophy hunting, does not mean you have the moral high ground (even if you are pedantic enough to name your boat Pequod and pontificate with pejorative insults and unsubstantiated declarations from the poopdeck, not to single any glaring example out).

This is the same tactic that PETA-types use against Sea World. It is the same tactic that the anti-gunners use. "Our position is ethical and caring! You disagree so you are an evil hater!"

Take a long, hard look in the mirror. What you see looks exactly like Dr Palmer to those in the population who view fishing as unethical. Their boundary is a little different than yours.

I choose to celebrate the beauty and freedom of a country where someone can plan it, pay for it and make it happen if that is their dream. Personally, I'd much rather go catch some maguro!
