Trophy Hunting- HUNTERS
Transcript of Trophy Hunting- HUNTERS
How is it done?
- Johannesburg, SA
- Moreson, SA
- Game parks
- in the US it is legal to import animals from canned hunting practices
We hunt canned lions, rather than hunting them in the wild. This is because it is more economical, environmentally friendly and frankly easier to bring home a lion.
Canned Lion Hunting:
- A trophy hunt in which an animal is kept in a confined area, such as a fenced in area, which increases the likely hood of the hunter obtaining a kill.
- When in captivity, hunters have more chance at a clean shot causing their death to be fast and less painful compared to chasing them in the wild and needing more than 1 shot.
- Legal in South Africa.
- In 2012 alone, canned lion hunting generated 96.5211114 million AUS dollars.
- Canned hunting is not the hunting of wild animals, but that who are bred in captivity.
- Canned hunters are paying to kill a lion in an enclosure.
- We believe that canned lion hunting is more humane than killing them in the wild. This is because in the wild the game animals are chased to exhaustion and taken from their families, then killed.
- Canned hunting however, is kinder to lions because, they are bred in captivity which means they have never experienced the wild therefore don’t know any better are spared the pain from the loss.
- When these animals are bred in captivity they carry on a continuous cycle. This is then better for the animals in the wild as they can continue breeding and increase the chance of the species survival. The hunters make sure that for each lion killed, another is born.
Positives of this:
A little more info:
Canned lion hunting funds more than just the hunting industry as the hunters need to buy all the products such as bullets, guns, treatment/cure for the animal skin, dens/land where the animals stay prior to kill, the food while they are growing, general hygiene, and any medication/vet visits to keep animals healthy before kill. Canned hunting is more economical than trophy hunting.
- Home decor
- 'the thrill'
- Cultural rituals
- Shows a sign of wealth
- Shows masculinity
- Social status
- Bait is set up in much the similar fashion to that of leopard, excepting that the bait is not all the way up in a tree to make it accessible to lions. Drags are created and a blind / hide is built as soon as the lion starts feeding.
2. To walk and stalk:
- We drive along the sandy roads of the huge properties until we cut lion tracks. Our trackers determine if the tracks are fresh or old and if they are big enough to follow or not. Once we have established if it is worth our while to pursue the tracks we dismount and start tracking.
- Aim for the inside of the closer shoulder so the shot can penetrate the vital organs.
- Aim for the center of the chest just above the brisket.
- Head shots should be avoided as far as possible due to the possibility of hitting the jaw.
- If lying down wait until the lion looks to either side and be ready to place the shot where the neck joins the chest.
