Hey Y'all. Just wondering who all had watched the documentary on Netflix called "Trophy." Sort of an interesting watch. I definitely learned a couple things I didn't know about some of the Africa Hunting.

I mean for the most part it was like a 50/50 split. I think CNN did it but I didn't get an OVERWHELMING sense of anti hunting. They talked to a couple hunters, couple outfitters, a guy who was raising rhino on a ranch, and a couple anti hunters. There wasnt any narration, it was just talks and discussions with all these people. They videoed a couple hunts, definitely an interesting perspective. They also talked to some more free chase management minded outfitters and some almost caged hunt outfitters as well.

But it wasn't a soap box of anti hunting.

every hunter should watch it. It's about as unbiased as anything one could expect from a liberal org. They actually interviewed and highlighted a former EWA president.

It does show the ugly underbelly but it also shows the positives of hunting.

Agreed, I thought it was worth the watch.

I liked how they showed the facts about the rhino horn ban causing almost all of the poaching issues.

I didn't think it was biased. Very interesting and worth the watch.

On another note, does anyone else have a problem with this brainwashed POS claiming to be a vegan? I don't think there's enough broccoli in the world to maintain that physique.

that is EXACTLY what my wife said! i think her question went something like "Does she know a bucket of fried chicken is neither fruit OR vegetable???
I was stunned at her remark actually she never says anything bad about anybody, but she was horribly offended that someone would judge us for the way we live and what we choose to eat

That sweat hog could be a vegan and still fat. Vegan diets can make you fat no problem at all.

The only thing that kind of bummed me out was the African Outfitter that was pulling crocs out of an enclosure for a hunt I guess. Like, I wouldn't be near as happy taking a crocodile if I knew it had been pulled out of a swimming pool a day ago. To me the life it must've lived is part of the trophy.

Absolutely. An all brisket diet is much healthier than an all twinkie diet. Frankly, it's probably healthier than any diet loaded up with packaged foods and sugar.

Guess what, fellas. We are omnivores so supposed to eat some meat.

LOL, my wife and I were laughing about her too. My wife said, "uh lady, you know chocolate cake has milk and eggs, right?"

Overall, I thought it was a pretty balanced portrayal and showed how hunting dollars are helping save these animals. Without hunting dollars, the local population would wipe out the native wildlife to protect their farms and livestock.

Crazy how the Rhino guy was gambling on the rhino tucks. Has 60+mil in inventory. You would think the "poachers" would find his stash house and raid it.

Interesting show for sure. Not sure I agree with the DB that shot the gator in the stock pond. All types, I guess.

That guy that shot the croc in the pond came off as a multi generational trust fund kid.

I also thought it was pretty interesting the council for the ban on ivory trade tried to claim, the ban wasn't the main reason for the rise on rhino poaching.
