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.

Hunting has been a tradition for many years. There are both pros and cons of hunting. There are several actions that you can do right and wrong to keep the environment healthy when you are hunting. Hunting is still very controversial and whether it is supported or not depends on who you ask.
Hunting to me is something special. Not only are you putting food on the table but you are making some very good memories. One of the best memories I have is my very first hunt, it was my dad and I we were in the blind for maybe thirty mintues and a little six point buck walks and looks around then goes back into the tall grass then my dad rattles the antlers and he comes out and boom that was the end of it. It was an amazing expericence and every since then I have never stopped hunting.
“Hunting is not a sport. In a sport, both sides should know they are in the game.” (Paul Rodriguez) makes it least that animals are not aware of the fact that they are being hunted. According to Britannica.com, hunting was a necessity in early history. Early hunting for sport was for rulers and their nobles, those having the most leisure and wealth. Hunting is defined as the act of killing or taking down a creature. Killing is a synonym of murdering, and murdering is a crime. Some may say that hunting can provide food, which is a necessity for humans, or that is one way for them to make money. Despite these facts, some people are selfish enough to exceed their wants and hunt down animals for pleasure. That is why, sport hunting should be made illegal because hunting destroys animals ’wildlife habitats and hunting contributes to their extinction.
The Great Outdoors. A place where one can get many of life’s necessities. Some of life’s necessities are provided through hunting and fishing of different types, such as fly fishing and deer or bear hunting. That does not seem inhumane. Well, some think it is and these actions do not sit well with them. Some may choose to go to a grocery store and pay for the things that are processed, rather than going and getting the freshest, free version of the same thing, in their own backyard. In cases like these, those who choose this method are not keeping any animals alive by doing so. They have to be killed first to get to the grocery store anyways. Even with that being said, many would see killing an animal to use as food as the cruelest thing a
Hunting has been a part of our society since the first man set foot on this continent, but animal rights movements have become popular in our society recently that has questioned the necessity of hunting in our modern times. Because of this, animal populations are left freely to where they can multiply at an alarming rate. Hunting is a great means of controlling animal populations’ growth, although greatly opposed by many. While hunting is a very controversial topic in our society, there are great points for being for and against it.
Description of the Media The Hunting Ground is a documentary film that captures students who have been sexually assaulted at their college campus. This documentary specifically focuses on two former University of North Carolina students, Andrea Pino and Annie Clark. They both share the same story of being raped on UNC campus.
There would be more problems that would present themselves in the future if nothing was done to prevent them now. Henceforth hunting should be acknowledged as a benevolent act that conserves wildlife, promotes personal growth for people who hunt, and maintains
In the long run, killing these animals will only result in endangerment of the species. I don’t see the wrong with hunting for food and/or hunting for survival. However, hunting to control population or simply for bragging rights, is what I considered
In the last couple of years, the issue regarding big game hunting has received more recognition since the killing of Cecil the lion in 2015. Despite the controversy concerning the use of legal paperwork by Walter Palmer, the individual who killed the lion, the killing of the exotic animal itself caused a major spark in the ethicality of trophy hunting. “The killing of Cecil the lion in Zimbabwe in July 2015 reignited the debate over big game hunting” (Big Game). When looking at big game hunting from an ethical point of view, it is more beneficial than opposers realize. There are many controversies surrounding the dispute of the legality involving big game hunting, most educated hunters know that big game hunting actually helps, not hurts, the
In the film, "Louis Theroux's African Hunting Party", South African wild game farmers advocate trophy hunting as a necessary activity for saving certain species from inevitable extinction due to illegal wildlife poaching. However, when considering Peter Singer's utilitarian theory on the ethical treatment of non-human animals, the process of shooting and killing an animal to preserve its species seems counterintuitive. Applying Singer's perspective, my position is that trophy hunting is morally unacceptable as it reasserts speciesism by disregarding the suffering of the animals being murdered for sport. Indeed, the act of purchasing a hunting permit so that a person may kill an animal for its material value dismisses the animal's personhood.
Hunters are very offended by these prohibition acts of gun control. Not all people use these fire arms for a defensive item but to put food on their families’ tables. Guns have always been around in today’s society; they have saved our country and made it what it is today. Taking away rights not only hurt what defense we have with them but it takes away the sport and enjoyment of those who hunt (1). Taking away from the second amendment and not having the freedom of using guns as we please or when they are in need is not fair.
The majority of the amount of animals that are killed in the wild are because of hunters. Humans usually kill these animals for accessories such as fur, meat, and other body parts. Creatures in the wild are almost always being hunted, whether it’s by a predator or a hunter. Law enforcers have tried to eliminate the amount of hunters by not allowing road building or hunting in certain areas. This definitely helped a lot, but still doesn’t fix the problem with predators.
