The Ethics of Sport Hunting - ... Trophy quality should connote a challenging hunt where we stay in the field longer and hunt harder for a larger old male in his last year or two of life. In the end, however, every animal we kill is a trophy; that is to say, a cherished reality brought to fruition by our honest effort. “Fair chase” hunting as a concept is meaningful only in the broad domain of recreational or non-subsistence hunting. However, “hunt ethics” may be a better term since hunting is more than just the chase. It is the preparation, anticipation, finding, stalking, and legal killing of the prey....   [tags: Hunting] 2300 words

The Necessity of Legalizing Wolf Hunting in Wisconsin - ... The attitude towards wolves spiraled out of control, causing hunts based on vengeance and hatred, and inhumane practices of poisoning, trapping, and torturing began. Even a former governor of Alaska, Jay Hammond, felt that flying in a plane and shooting down hundreds of wolves was necessary to protect the citizens of the state. Wolf furs were coveted, the animals were loathed, and the image of the wolf as a cowardly murderer stuck based on old-fashioned beliefs and legend-based fears. Nothing was done to stop the practices, and the hunts continued to be encouraged, until there were basically no wolves left to hunt (Lopez 139-145)....   [tags: animal studies, hunting]

Fox Hunting - Fox Hunting Fox hunting and fox hunting for sport is currently being argued widely. In my opinion I feel that “living in a free country” does not mean having the right to be cruel or spiteful to anyone or anything. Although many throughout the world may disagree with my opinion, I think that fox hunting should only be done in good deed such as helping farmers who can’t afford to pay for a knacker. Another example that suggests fox hunting is a bad sport as they are doing it for their own pleasure and is not at all helping others, as the majority of people when asked said that they are totally against fox hunting and that huntsmen are mostly: “These huntsmen are always Snooty, Rich and aristocratic.” As Richard Sidaway states: “If ‘country sports’ really are a sport, how come the same side always wins?” Many people may argue that they are hunting to help the farmers keep predators away from their cattle but in my point of view they are doing it for “pleasure” as many of them call it but I feel that farmers should make more of an effort to secure their cattle and animals....   [tags: Papers] 722 words
