    The "Hunter" said it's full of half truths and lies. I'm shocked I tell you, shocked.

    You are right. The publicity for the show has a hunter with his rifle pointing at "something" you can't see, then shows a full picture of a rhino giving the illusion that he is going to shoot it. I am pretty sure rhinos are completely protected. Unfortunately I'll be at a shoot in Az and won't have access to the show.

    Well, I watched it and to me it left more questions unanswered than it answered.

    It did cover the problems of the rino's quite well in showing that if there is no economic value then they have no value. The same was hit or miss on elephants and lions but wasn't covered very well.

    In the long run I don't think that it will change very many minds one way or the other or even get people talking about it one way or the other except for on internet forums like this one.

    Just so that some of you know, I did go to South Africa to hunt plains game and saw a lot of what was on the show first hand. However it is hard to explain a lot of it to a non hunter that has their mind made up on the other side.

    Watched it as well.

    Makes me appreciate the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation even more...and definitely exposed the flaws in the management style of Africa, Europe, etc.

    There is a different mindset with hunting in Africa than here in the states, it is more along the European ideas. The vast majority of it is going to be on game farms and high fences but the properties are larger than most think. The ones that I hunted on a person would be hard pressed to walk from one side of it to another in a day if not two days or even more. Plus the animals that I hunted acted just as wild as any animal here in North America.

    Granted there are the canned hunts. The one for the croc in the show was a canned hunt and I actually think that part of it was put on by the show. I can't believe that someone would hand someone else a beer after taking a shot at a animal, but then from their accent I would say that the person that shot the croc was European also. But we also have canned hunts here in North America. I know where you can go shoot a 500" bull elk if you have the money along with bison and deer.

    You just have to realize that over there if the animal does not make the landowner money then they are worthless and will be done away with. Which is not much different than anywhere else.
