That is sad. I know nothing about African hunting, but I pray for his family. It's often hard to remember and more so to live out but Romans 12:14 is so important.

"Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse them."

The context is obviously different, but I think it applies to many areas of our lives, especially in today's social/political climate.

It is an absolute guarantee the intolerant hunter haters (they don't like wildlife as much as they hate us) will cheer this kind of tragedy. I've spent more time (in my past wildlife jobs) around these types than I ever wanted.

I found what unhinges them most is to refer to them as a "radical" in public. FYI. They have lost ground and hunters have gained it in terms of public opinion over the past 15 years. Much of that gain is due to the increase in deer populations and the damage they do to exotic flowers and shrubs (landscaping).

The closest they'll ever get to to "conservation" will be their computer screen or their bar mate's cocktail.

I was tempted to check out the anti posts but decided my doing so would do nothing but increase their "post hit numbers" and make me even more disappointed in my species.

Case in point: In June, 1997 the "Friends" wanted KY to abandon its plan to restore elk to the state because 10-15% per year would be taken by hunters. They would rather this native animal remain extinct in KY than for some of them to grace a hunter's dinner table. To these selfish people the "greater good" has no standing. The anti's lost and wildlife won. Today more than 10,000 elk roam 3,000,000 acres of Eastern KY. I drew my first tag (cow archery) for this year's season.

Sometimes, as a license buying and excise tax paying hunter, I resent carrying the conservation load for these folks. But as a perfect "man" once said, "forgive them because they know not what they do."
