So trump tells prissy Piers Morgan in an interview last week that he is going to keep that elephant trophy ban in place and that he doesnít think that African hunting is conservation. Not so much as a squawk out of the hunting and outdoors community over this. We are the ones that support him not the anti crowd.

Good. Why does anyone need to kill and elephant anyway. You don't eat it.

Why go deer hunting if you can buy meat at the supermarket if you are going to use that logic. 🤨

This is exactly like the debate over owning assault rifles where you have gun owners lecturing other gun owners that they donít need to own an assault rifle.

Iíve actually never seen that on here. Iíve seen arguments about which is better for certain kinds of hunting-and then AR owners trying to put words in folksí mouth to that effect in an attempt to change the debate.

This is inaccurate. Elephants are consumed in their virtual entirety by villagers in the hunting areas. Bear in mind that the local villagers subsist almost entirely on ground cornmeal; any protean is very welcome indeed.

While i have no desire to kill one I do know that in most cases they choose an old bull that is doing no good for the herd and therefore it does help with conservation. Also, this doesnt ban hunting them, just importing anything from them back. Cheetahs and lions have same ban

There is much more to elephant hunting that helps those in need from food to money for their livelihood. To say there is no reason to hunt an elephant is a liberal mindset based on emotions and without facts or merit.

I'm glad his focus is elsewhere. He can always come back to the elephants after the swamp is drained and the wall is built.

Do a little research and find out which countries the importation ban is about and why it came about. Then ask your self as a hunter conservationist if the ban should hold or be reversed.
