Re: “World Record Bull Elk, Sort of ...

@ SamathaJones

Wow. Really?.... I'll bet you've reformed hundreds of murdering hunters with your poetic writings and articulate mannerisms. You go girl!

"Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end."

Re: “World Record Bull Elk, Sort of ...

@ Whatif

For the same reason cattle ranchers don't take photos with the cows they slaughter and score the moo-cow on it's antler measurements. It's not a matter of better or worse, hunter vs. rancher. You're off topic and way off base.

The article is about "canned hunting" which most Idaho hunters DO NOT agree with. It's a rich man's game, which goes against ALL the rules of "hunting." This man paid almost $6000 to kill a domesticated elk in a small area. I've read stories about these canned-hunts where the "hunter" had trouble finding the animal, so the ranch owner would tie it to a tree for an easy find. These canned-hunts are about making money, a lot of money.

Also, wounded vets and handicapped people might benefit from a hunt like this, but they too hunt on public lands and harvest animals just as much as anyone else. So that argument doesn't hold much weight.

Idaho doesn't need such rich man sports. Pay for kill canned-hunts are for people who don't want to put much effort into it. It's for out-of-State rich people who need a picture of themselve's with an animal. An odd looking elk at that... Did anyone else notice this Elk looks a little odd?

Re: “World Record Bull Elk, Sort of ...

This isn't hunting and this man is not a hunter. Hunters go out and scout for months on public land. Then the hunter locates an area where they plan to harvest the animal(s). A GOOD hunter will spend months, if not years preparing. All the while enjoying the great outdoors and the excitement of the hunt. And harvest or not, animal or no animal, a REAL hunter understands the meaning of FAIR GAME.

This story is about "killing" and not hunting. A man went out into a large cage and killed an animal, which could not retreat. This crap gives all the humane hunters a bad name. Shame on this ranch and this hunter.
