    CNN Film "Trophy"

    CNN has produced a new film called "Trophy" which according to their website is about trophy hunting. It premiers on Sunday January 14th on CNN. I can imagine what the message will be....ANTI HUNTING! According to their writeup and release on the film it is about trophy hunting in Africa for "The Big 5", game farm hunting and Safari Club.

    I won't be able to see it as I will be at a shoot in Az where I won't have any TV available. Just a heads up as I believe a lot of anti hunting garbage will be out there.

    I saw this and have my DVR set to record the show.

    Same as you I wonder what the message will be.
    ... because every picture tells a story

    I'm sure it is taken from the Nat Geo magazine article. It is completely bias. Lamenting that the trophy hunters leave the meat without telling the truth that the meat can not be taken home as well as it is donated to local villagers. Don't waste your time.

    Not watching or reading anti hunting stuff, IMHO is like going to a gun fight with an unloaded gun! I want to know whats being said out there so I can have answers when I hear that kind of crap being discussed. Being uninformed is really not the answer, have rebuttal comments and information is the way to fight it. You need to know what to defend.

    To each their own but the reality is you're wasting your time and you won't change anybody's mind. Most people have already made their minds up when they get involved in a conversation and they have no intention of listening to any kind of counter-argument. They are too lazy to take the time to research opposing arguments, they have no real intellectual honesty, and their real intention is to piss people off rather than reaching a consensus. I used to debate ideas but since most arguments turn in to personal attacks rather than well reasoned discussions I prefer to spend my time doing more productive things.
