The following excerpt is from an article that originally appeared on Bullets First
Big Game Hunting has become a hot button topic recently. The Trump administration is currently weighing the option of allowing the trophies collected during big game hunts to be legally brought back into the United States. When his initially decision to remove the prohibition was announced it was decried by citizens on both ends of the political spectrum who somehow equate hunting big game to poaching. Or that they have some revulsion to hunting in general, yet have no issue eating a cheeseburger or wearing leather Birkenstocks.
After the initial backlash the President announced that he was postponing the decision until his administration could research the issue more.
What we are seeing on social media, the mainstream media and from anti hunting advocates are photos of dead elephants shot by hunters and the pearl clutching reaction of how “horrible and pointless” it all is.
