How'd you all figure out that no one ate the meat from those animals from that picture?
It's funny how people like to bash hunters when they fund much of the wildlife here in the states, contribute to economies around the world, and feed many poor in the areas they hunt.
It's obvious you don't know much about hunting, here, or in other parts of the world. Not all hunters, but most are conversationalist. And rarely is meat wasted. Even in safari hunts in Africa, rarely does anything go to waste. Meat is normally dressed and prepped immediately, and either eaten at the camp, on the reserve by locals, or sent to market. So it's not for no other reason. And while I'm sure that some hunts are "lazy", most are active "stalk". And even in lazy hunts, the meat is not wasted.
It's hilarious how most folks will pearl clutch at hunting, yet order their fast food chicken sandwich or hamburger which is made from animals that never had a chance to run wild. I guess mass systemic killing is better than rifle or bow? And most don't have a clue that hunting is needed for population control in many areas. As long as the animal is not endangered, and as long as there is no waste, folks shouldn't have an issue. If they do, they need to go vegan or loosen up on their pearls.
A customer of mine , a woman, owned a hoagie shop locally. A well-known establishment that had success for 50 + years. The owner died , and left business to his MUCH younger wife. She proceeded to travel the world shooting everything in site. Soon, the restaurant wall were covered with pictures of her smiling face next to DEAD big, beautiful animals. Lions, Tigers, bears (oh my! Haha), deer and elk of all types, etc, etc, etc. Beautiful animals, dead for no other reason than to hang on a wall.: Many are shot in enclosed areas with high power , from a distance.
Well, business fell off the face of the earth and she eventually sold.
I always say “impress me, hunt with a bowie knife, or stay on the couch.”
I just don’t “get it.”
