    Badenoch, not sure how much you have hunted in RSA, but I get all kinds of folks hunting with us, big/small, young/old, male/female, fit/unfit, who are from all over the world, different religions, ethnicity, culture and walks of life. The one thing they have in common is that they enjoy hunting. I have hunted buff that were actually easier to stalk than a wary giraffe. Shoot from the truck? Never have never will. Unethical hunting can happen anywhere and is only unethical if the law states it as so. I would love to know where you formed your opinion of hunting in RSA .... doesn't sound like anyplace I would want to hunt.

    He's well informed, he read about it in a "News Paper "-- fake news

    Further to that Giraffe that was discussed, it provided to the natives a lot of meat, " According to Babaz, Talley ate some of the giraffe’s meat during her hunting trip but gave most of it away to feed more than 200 local villagers, including children at an orphanage. " He was over 18 years old and provided over 2000 lbs. of meat.

    "
    An American hunter is pushing back against her critics, after photos of her next to a giraffe she killed in South Africa triggered outrage. Tess Thompson Talley told CBS News in a statement she killed the old bull giraffe to prevent it from attacking younger giraffes. She said, “This is called conservation through game management.”

    "
    In a statement, Talley said the giraffe she killed last year was more than 18 years old and “beyond breeding age, yet had killed 3 younger bulls… Now that the giraffe is gone, the younger bulls are able to breed.”
    According to Babaz, the trophy fee for a giraffe is about $2,000 to $3,000 per animal. He said because money from legal hunting helps support the local community, it provides an incentive to make sure big game animals don’t become extinct."

    jaycee, I hunted one a few years ago who was killing all the younger bulls and calves, it is quite something to see a giraffe take a disliking to another giraffe.

    They are the animal equivalent of a Serial killer, but they don't stop at other giraffes, other animals and people also can and will become victims to a "ROGUE" animal.

    How about the problems created by transfering only young bull elephants to new areas to reintroduce elephants, because they are easier to transport. They started attacking and killing Cape Buffalo and Rhinos. Rangers moved a few older bulls into the area the problems stop. Well they stopped after the older bulls kick the stuffing out of a couple of the young bulls.....

    Would you need a migratory license for that?

    But an 88 may come in handy.
