In America maybe.
“The biggest difference between Americans and your Europeans..” Thus began the African outfitter (that is someone who organizes hunting trips) His story against Me “.. Is that Americans ask for the most beautiful piece-with the biggest horns-and that Europeans ask for an old piece-ill preferably-with a deformity or some other blemithing. “
An American will show the beautiful antlers against his brothers and sisters.And everyone does “oohh” and “Aahh” and will knock the American on the shoulder.” So” the American thinks “again a few POINTS on the CIC score closer to a membership of the Safari International Club”.
A European, on the other hand, will show that Antler is something. A growth.A disease. A genetic disorder. His/her hunting brothers and sisters are bending over it. And then the discussions begin. What kind of sickness was that? How would this come? May require further investigation? Forget about that weird point count, which is much more interesting. Even more interesting are the stories that come with it. Because that old, sick goat who ran mank by an inflammation that became a growth, knows that his days are counted and is a thousand times as cautious as in his younger years. There the hunter has to work for, sweating I say. Tens of kilometers of walking. Nights in a little hut in a tree. Observe for months through the binoculars. Still often that Hunter will stand for that antler, and mumble “You have done your best, but it is good so, now you may frothy again on the Eternal Heath”.
(This wild boar was shot with a plastic jar, grown with his muzzle.
The muzzle was never completely mature and brittle with loose bone pieces. It weighed also 20kg lighter than a boar of its age should normally weigh. This is worth keeping to learn as a ‘ trophy ‘)
No, banning trophies is not going to help.
Maybe in America.But here in Europe it is still cheaper to buy trophies, then you must first follow thousands of euros and a year of solid training and finally you will also be close to something that resembles a trophy.And then there is social media. Sharing a photo is much easier than inviting your brothers and sisters in green. Then many more people think about it if you have something special. A veterinary student. A couple of armchair biologists. The veterinarian wants to have a sample. And then you don’t have to have anything on the wall.
And then you have people like the undersigned, who have no need to have trophies on the wall at all.Those pair of crows and those Nile goose from last week set up? I’m not kidding. Then I keep going and when I want to see Crows and Nile geese I look outside. I don’t hunt because I want to have trophies. I hunt because that farmer and the nature manager suffer from problem crows. That is why at four o’clock in the morning (or earlier) I leave my hot house with my goodies and step out of the air.
(At five o’clock in the morning in the rain sit outside waiting for that one crow.
I can advise everyone. There are enough nicer hobbies where you don’t get mud in the boots and the cold that starts at the toes, after a handful of hours until the armpits is crawled)
Or that in the middle Of the night the bed should be looking out together with another with a well trained dog in the hills to a deer that is running on 3.5 feet after a collision.
Or those nights in that tree hut, waiting for those boar who can decimate that field, from thousands of euros in crop to a thousands of euro damage post for the community.
Do you know how to discourage hunters?Not by banning trophies, but by offering alternatives. Oh, what would I give if the state of science is such that we can treat sick roe deer without dying on the operating table of the stress. Oh, what would it be a beautiful dawn, if we can grow vegetables without a large part being eaten by wild animals and birds. Oh, I welcome that day when young tenderloin can grow without the crows picking up the eyes. Oh, in what a beautiful world we would live without myxomatosis and stray waste.
Then I could do what I prefer to do: look at animals.(By the binoculars, of course. I do not have a talent for photographing, and if I want to share with others all that beauty that our nature has to offer, I would rather invite them. I recommend good boots and warm undergarments)
A few things to think about where the animals (and the Hunters) can be helped with:
- A locker in the car that automatically brakes the car when there is a game at the point of crossing.
Of course compulsory in the car.
The whole harvest to the galemiezen because a few hippos have been in the corn. Now, such a farmer asks for such a foreign hunter or who wants to pay the damage (and some) in exchange for shooting the problem animal in question. Me seems to be a very bad idea.I have little pleasure hunting and for my part it is drastically reduced. But the Netherlands has an extremely high number of bans, it is a national disease. When there is a problem, roommates and local politicians start calling for bans immediately. That is a situation that we must prohibit in the first place. A mounted Everzwinenkop on the wall is otherwise quite cozy. Imagine that the situation is being created that you may have a prepared human head from new Guinea in the showcase, but the wild boar on the wall would be banned.
芒 鈧?艙If one takes away from you, you will give the impossible to get it.And you’ll too. 芒 鈧?p>
Take drugs: in the Netherlands (weed for example) is legal, while it is much less common to use drugs than in America!It’s going to make no difference.
I would like to have a tsantsa in the house.A tsantsa is a dried up vekleind people head. Some South American Indian tribes seem to be very able to maintain the original facial features. Unfortunately it seems to be forbidden by law to have such a thing in house.
No, that puts Gern on the dike.There are hunters who are kikken. On trophies, but for the majority of hunters, hunting instinct is the Kik.
As a photographer I understand that the search, finding and sneaking of prey is quite exciting, and it also gives me kik to put my prey on the picture.Only. Inplaays of photographing kill hunters their prey.
I used to hunt very much against all the hunt.Nowadays I accept that hunting can be noidbusiness to keep animal populations within limits. Too much to deer, rabbits or other animals can mean a deterioration of the whole nature in that area.
That said Hebend, real population control for me is the only acceptable form of hunting.Wolves shoot down because they think lambs, chickens ect suits. I that that’s not so鈩?N good idea. Those few wolves that we possibly bring hrbben though. Is What damages farmers, they are part of our original nature that we as humans have soaked up. The fact that the animal is slowly coming back again is finally a small sign that we are again on the right path to restore the balance that we have lost for decades or even more.
Oehh I like it!
That’s just a good idea!
Sure there is a history behind it, and a kind of “wildculture”, but in the 21st century it should not be a thing that we want to boast of what we have shot down; In addition, we strive as 芒 鈧?虄species to a selfish future, plus we are 芒 鈧?艙humans “and there is nothing humane about a deceased animal hanging on the wall, or portions of it.
Do not get me wrong, both my grandma’s & Oma芒 鈧劉 s have/had stuffed animals at home, as a child I found it to look interesting; But the older I became all the stranger I started to find the idea.
Yes, it would be a good idea!(In my opinion) Especially if you look at those tourists who are shooting for fun here wild in another country to be able to photograph it. (Better they make that also banned by law.)
