This is a kind of silly cartoon, but it explains very well why trophy hunting = conservation. It's preaching to the choir for the folks on here but it might be worth forwarding to any non-hunting young folks or coworkers.

“He grouped his last five shots right in the center of the bull’s-eye. Then I showed him my technique of scattering shots randomly around the target because, as I explained, you never know which way the deer might jump just as you pull the trigger.”

Agree it's silly, but it makes very accurate points.

To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

My daughter sent it to me also. I don't like the caricature of hunters as egotistic buffoons, but aside from that it at least speaks the factual truth about the role of hunting as indispensable to conservation.

It's a good example of even a liberal-leaning group willing to examine the facts and find the truth on an issue. We could use more of that from both liberals and conservatives.

What these toolboxes don't understand is that hunters respect and value the animals more than they do. Hunters go spend time and immerse themselves in nature and understand and appreciate it far more than some faux intellectual hipster who never leaves the confines of some urban enclave. Hunters spend their time and money protecting and increasing the health of the animal populations. Hunters do far more to protect and encourage animal populations than do these sideline sitters, and hunters do it out of a deep appreciation for wildlife.
