According to “Big Game Hunting Is Also Big Business, for Wealthy Few” by Liam Stackaug, "6 major pros and cons of hunting" from NLACTP.ORG, and "can trophy hunting actually help conservation?" By science magazine. Big game hunting is good because it provides economic aid to countries that allow big game hunting, and controls the population of certain species. However, big game hunting is an unpredictable activity that could hurt you. Although there are negatives to big game hunting, the benefits heavily outweigh the opposition.
The International Fund also claims at “least 5,663 lions were traded internationally for trophy hunting purposes. More than half of these lions were imported to the United States” (International Fund for Animal Welfare). Several studies have demonstrated that excessive trophy harvests have driven population declines. Jeff Flocken of the National Geographic Magazine states that “600 lions are killed every year on trophy hunts. These hunts are unsustainable and put more pressure on the species” (Flocken).
I have been hunted by people while playing games I have also been hunted by animals while I was hunting. While hunting can seem like a one sided sport for the huntees it can very well be a two sided sport. The hunted can turn into the hunter in the blink of an eye. If the hunter makes a mistake then it could cause them to be the hunted. Just like in the story Rainsford becomes the hunter in an instant right when he appears in General Zaroff’s
He says in quote 2 “I’m still a beast at bay,” (Connell 18), referring to himself as prey is a major change. Due to him becoming sympathetic towards the prey, it might affect his hunting, whether or not he will continue the sport he loved. When the hunting tables were turned on Rainsford, in Richard Connell’s, The Most Dangerous Game, we see into the mind of Rainsford. He learns what it I’d like to be hunted, and his thoughts from before, to during, to after, all affects his views on the sport oh hunting
Connell creates uncertainty in the story by foreshadowing the reader of future events. At dinner, Zaroff interests Rainsford with the fact that he “‘hunt[s] more dangerous game’” (5). Zaroff explains that “‘hunting had ceased to be what you call ‘a sporting proposition’ it had become too easy,’” (7) he needs game that is “‘able to reason”’ (7), but Rainsford knows that “‘no animal can reason”’ (7). Connell foreshadows the upcoming events by gradually explaining the credentials of the animal he desires to hunt. Once the reader recognizes Zaroff’s intentions
“This hot weather is making you soft, Whitney. Be a realist. The world is made up of two classes-the hunters and the huntees. Luckily, you and I are hunters.” Rainsford has been there before, and I do not think he would want to go back along with anyone else, if he were to continue the big-game, he would not be able to kill someone, other than an animal, he enjoys hunting, just not people like General Zaroff. Rainsford got on Ship-Trap Island by falling off his yacht, once he heard a gunshot he went towards them, Rainsford did not mean to fall off his ship and land where he did, but he continues to go
That is the benefits he got from these powers he acquired in these mutualism relationship. Mostly, the powers gave him strength and courage. For instance, at the raid against Bull Shield’s village (Bull Shield was the that almost killed Yellow Kidney, Fools Crow’s father-in-law and the Lone Eaters, Fools Crow’s tribe had attacked the village to avenge Yellow Kidney), Fools Crow had sung “his Wolverine power song and had tied a small pouch containing the white stone around his neck” (147). This was to ensure victory at war for him and his tribe and even though he had almost not succeeded, he had found strength from the wolverine’s power to take down the enemy which had earned him the name Fools Crow. After the raid, he had also given thanks to the Wolverine for giving him a light “war wound” (150) which was indeed an honor back then.
Some of today’s traditional games like hide-and-seek were played during the Elizabethan time period. Games like bear baiting and hawking, which involve animal cruelty, having since been discontinued because they are considered inhumane in today’s eyes. There were a profuse amount of sports played hundreds of years ago from the Elizabethan era thought of as the basis for the sports that we play today. Archery was one of the most popular sports played in the Elizabethan period and contests were held between high skilled archers for prizes. Fencing is also a classic illustration of a sport from the Elizabethan era that we still play today.
Banning Poaching About 100 elephants are killed each day by poachers seeking ivory. To this day about 400,000 elephants are remaining, and possibly in the next decade elephants will become extinct. Although, a single pound of Ivory in an elephant’s tusk can go for one thousand- five hundred dollars, killing the living creature is brutal, and people need to find a better way to take the white substance from the tusk, because elephants are the source to making grasslands, creating water holes, and eventually will be next for extinction. Those on the other side of the issue may say that banning poaching is not going to change the fact that elephants are still going to die. For example, “If there were no poaching, there’d still be a supply of ivory from elephants who die of natural mortality”(John Walker).
Pit bulls were once respected animals, and therefore, should not be banned. Reasons for this opinion are former respect, media bias, and other breeds also being dangerous. Once respected First of all, before the civil war pit bulls were a working breed that gained much respect. According to source 3, by the 1900’s one of the most popular was the pit bull. These dogs were kept as pets, guardians, herders, and hunters.
Hunting licenses If you like to hunt do you think the deer tags are too much? Well I do because if you don 't see a deer that is big enough you are out at least $31 for one tag and that is way too much. I want them to lower the price instead of raising it because they get extra money. Another couple facts are the tags are expensive, and adding the base license its too expensive for some people, and leads to people shooting deer illegally, you can 't even shoot a deer unless it has four on one side, but it 's nice to the youth hunters because they can get a tag free and gets to shoot what they want, but adding the base license, they should mark down some hunting gear for the people who pay for it. This is a few reasons why its to expensive.
Some people say the age of hunting is over, but many people still hunt. People hunt for food or sport. It is true that most people do not need to hunt for food, but hunting is a sport that many still enjoy. Sure, there are other types of hunting that don’t use firearms, but are you really going to try to trap a deer in a cage? Self-defense is one of the most important reasons to own a firearm, because the crime rates in America are soaring.According to the Federal Bureau of
