In today’s world there is no other possible way to manage our wildlife in such an effective manner as we do it now. What people need to realize and accept is the fact that hunting does not harm the animals as severely as leaving them to overpopulate does. There would be more problems that would present themselves in the future if nothing was done to prevent them now.

I don’t believe it is our job to decide whether an animal should live or die, and I don’t see how killing an animal is supposed to help the population.

Deer are not the only animals that are stopped from creating problems with the ecosystem. Animals such as warthogs and the Springboks are also hunted to stop problems such as destruction of
Each year, trophy hunters want to reach a goal. The goal being hunting for the most exotic and rare animals. Trophy hunting is a booming business all across the world. Hunters claim they are “conservationist”, arguing that the only way that wildlife can survive is if it is given an economic value. Votes should ban trophy hunting because it causes pain and suffering, species to be endangered, and distribution of the food chain.
Wildlife Conservation is often seen as a bad thing, but if you look at it from my perspective, then it is actually a good thing. People think of it as holding wild animals captive, but we are actually protecting them from poachers. The purpose of Wildlife Conservation is to protect the animals in danger, which I am in agreement 110%. Other people argue that we shouldn’t have conservations, but they don’t know the harm that can happen to unprotected animals. Now, there are some cons to wildlife conservation, but so many more pros.
Although the strong opposition to hunting comes from the majority of the community, it does have the positive side. First of all, hunting contributes to the human food supply. Despite achievements attained in farming and livestock, there are still severe famines taking place in underdeveloped countries in Africa. People in these areas are mostly unemployed and unable to afford food, so hunting is the only way to guarantee their supplies of food. Secondly, as a form of outdoor entertainment, hunting provides people with recreation.
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.

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. Hunting is a way that humans see to keep balance of the ecosystem.
Most of the money that is spent on hunting equipment helps support the wildlife management programs. The nation gains about 61 billion dollars off of hunters around the world, and approximately 1.4 billion dollars is added to just the state tax revenue. Just in tourist coming into the country to hunt has made a total of 20 million per year which equals out to 200 million per decade.

There is nothing wrong with hunting for survival. Mankind has hunted animals large and small for hundreds of centuries. Hunting for sport should also be acceptable, with the appropriate rules, guidelines, and limitations. This past year the killing of a Cecil, a lion living in a protected reservation in Africa sparked a great deal of debate in regards to trophy hunting. The issue of the debate was whether it is morally justifiable to kill animals for sport.
Hunting and all those that partake in this hobby supply countless dollars to programs dedicated to ensuring that the environment stays healthy. Next, the act of hunting itself helps keep animal populations at a manageable number, where the animals aren 't doing damage to other species and people. The final reason is that for many families, mine included, hunting is part of our heritage. When our world faces pollution and animals experience loss of habitat it is detrimental to our way of life and existence. For many hunting is a conservation effort and the best way to protect the country that we live in.
