I dont see it really its that it requires much skill. Heck, he could shoot deers at age 5..
Have you ever learned how to use a firearm on a moving target? Do you realize just how difficult it is to do with a pistol, especially a hand cannon like he was using? Give it a try sometime, something tells me you may have a change of heart.
It was just ''trophy'' hunting, not for food. And look how fat he is, its not like he was starving
I highly doubt they did not eat the boar. That would be ridiculous and a waste of money. Bullets are not free, and boar is quite tasty when prepared right I hear. I am going to assume your judgement on the kid is a joke, if not its insensitive.
I do know where meat comes from but I bet most animal hunting there is not for food but for excitement/adventure. Ok they may use the meat, although often not themself and sell it to someone.
As pointed out by KoolHonda, most states don't allow you to sell it. I do not know any hunters who hunt purely for sport and its not something I support. I am sure some exist, but I would wager they are in the vast minority.
Over here we have very stickt policies and only when there is really too much of a certain species hunters are allowed to shoot them in very strict numbers.
We have the same policies, that is not a difference.
Are there still many wild animals in the forests over there?
Yes, yes there are. And due to the removal of predator species a century ago like wolves, they overpopulate and then starve to death since their natural check is gone. We are attempting to re-introduce wolves in the wild areas of the US(which, btw, are most of the country in terms of land mass), but that will take time, and is unlikely to ever completey rectify the situation. The US is still mostly untamed, and very wild.
You know a pig isnt that bad but a deer is worse and a bear, puma etc shamefull.
The largest nuisance animal in the US is the deer, which is so overpopulated that frequently they can starve to death by the hundreds or thousands if not controlled via hunting. When not enough hunters apply for permits the government has to hunt the herd themself, at great expense to the taxpayer I might add. Bears are not threatened here btw, there are tons of them and they cause problems. Big cats are not typically hunted, only if they become a threat to a residential area are they hunted, and even then its not by locals with rifles, its by game wardens or animal control who take it into captivity and try to move it elsewhere.
And when they are not enough sattificied they go to Africa for their wettest dream to become reality.
Yes, this is a sad practice. My boss is from South Africa and she talked at great length about the European tour groups who would come through trying to hire guides for illegal hunt. Oddly enough she never saw an american group, I wonder why that is? Not trying to disparage the Euros or anything, but perhaps having wild areas and being able to hunt mitigates the natural hunter/gatherer urges that our biology has bred into us for millennia...
Above are just bastards in my eyes but they sit there so proud while a bear is like 10 times stronger. Only with big rifles + scopes they have enough ''bravery''.
Perhaps, or perhaps your just reading into the image that which justifies your ideals.
I don't hunt, btw, I can't bring myself to kill something. I move spiders I find in my house outside rather than kill them. Its just how I am. But I have many hunter friends, and most are VERY environmenaly conscious, they feel they are the stewards of the land and take the job very seriously. Its not a bunch of happy-go-lucky yokels out with shotguns killing everything in sight.
