    Getting some yob to spend up to $300k to put an old one of these animals on his wall allows the species as whole to have a chance at survival.

    From what I have read, they put the animal in a space and is hunted.. not giving the animal a chance to get away so wimps like Trump Jr. can feel like a man..That is not hunting it is mean.

    They have to make sure they are killing the proper animal, the one selected by the conservation people as non-breeding or detrimental to the rest of the herd.

    Sometimes they "cage" the animal in a limited space, not an actual cage.

    Shooting the wrong animal can be a crime, so they have to make sure it's the right one.

    The Indians lived in our area for many years, never disturbed the balance of nature and the white man comes and massive kills the buffalo almost off of the planet.

    The indians respected the herds... for meat or fur.

    But there is no need to play God and hunt these animals like a game.. Take a picture ..

    Lets put Trump Jr.in a cage and hunt him without a weapon to fight back...

    .Now Rustic, and Marty hunt their food, I believe.

    Did you read what I wrote?

    How the hell did you get to me blaming Africans for the problems in Iraq? I didn't say that, I didn't even get close to saying that.

    I didn't "bame" America for all the World's problems, just the problems the US has caused.

    Who said I hate America? Oh wait, yeah. Don't agree with you, therefore I must hate America, right? Same old lame argument.

    They were actually quite damaging to nature, it was just that there weren't many of them. The "noble savage" myth is one of the heights of colonial fantasies, and quite frankly kind of racist.

    You may want to take a picture, but the type of people who will pay $100k-$300k a permit want to shoot something.

    And your "play fair" thing is simple stupidity on your part. Evolution gave us better minds, and thus the ability to make tools. Asking us to fight without them is like asking the lion to fight without it's claws and teeth.

    You are rambling onto another topic, try to stay focused.
