    Killing anything that is not causing harm to Ecology and/or human life should be illegal... And in some places , it is punishable!! There are exceptions, very few!

    Period.
    Don't know how we can put it any simpler. Hunting/killing animals for 'fun', is sick. Period.

    Stay on topic PT, someone has given you real feedback and you haven't discussed that.

    Just what I was about to say.

    There's a HUGE difference between hunting to eat and hunting for pleasure. It's sick and twisted to kill anything for fun.

    You forgot to mention hunting for conservation and hunting for community sustenance ... Then there are invasive species like coyotes and feral animals like hogs. It's a multi-facet issue. In developing countries, hunting exotic animals may bring needed funds to sustain communities, especially in Africa. My question is how much of it really goes to locals and how much is retained by safari organizers. I hope they are not getting duped.

    I'd speculate that sport hunting is by far the biggest one of the three, then conservation and community sustenance, and then "for necessity" hunting.

    As human population grows, more habitat will be destroyed to accommodate expansion. Wildlife will have to be culled or moved to other areas. UK is a good example of landscape transformation. It's "from woods to grass with human help" kind of thing.

    I am against sports hunting as well, but it's a part of human nature. There is no way to stop individual's desire to kill and control. You can only hope to manage it. And as I said earlier, conservation is often just an excuse.

    There is a passion for hunting something deeply implanted in the human breast.

    The site looks good, I'm not a big fan of the red but the style works.
    The CMS page could do with some improvements for people running high resolutions, it looks a bit empty on my 1680 px wide screen.

    What do you think?

    It appears to me you have worked incredibly hard to create a nice site.

    Possibly:
    • thread preview is not working, that may be intentional
    • you may want to simply list the states instead of adding predator talk to each one to reduce the amount of things on the screen
    • You may want to consider some basic information about what a predator is. Some innocent looking animals cause huge problems, and of course outlying urban areas have issues with other animals, and people in remote areas will have trouble with a different type of animal. I've had encountered all 3 types on multiple occasions. As you can tell from some of the responses in this thread people from other parts of the world may not understand some of the issues. It might be possible with some carefully worded, and accurate information, that it would be easier for those people to understand.

    Feel free to PM me if you want, I could suggest a few things. But based on how well your forum looks and is organized my input may be superfluous.

    Ok. All those trips in $40,000 trucks with best hunting gear and staying in a nice Best Western motel to find and kill that much prized buck is for providing food on the table. Touché.

    Lion hunting. They came all the way from Europe to do the slaughter of this magnificent animal to satisfy their need for protein? I hope they took some of it to serve aunt Betty with a lion steak to save her from hunger. Enjoy watching it.

    In the real world, our planet's ecosystems suffered greatly from people's egoism and foolishness. Gone long horned european ox, pure blood bison, turanian tiger, dwaft emu, tasmanian tiger, etc. all in the name of hunting . Note the explanation: hunted to extinction
