If there was no way to hunt without driving the population to extinction, I wouldn't hunt. And I'm satisfied to limit my hunting desire to species that don't bear that danger.

If you are trying to make me feel bad about that...sorry.

But you may not realize that hunters are what keep wildlife areas in the US in existence. People who don't actually get into the outdoors, in practice, aren't willing to pay the money to preserve them.

So you're either ignorant of that fact, or you're the real hypocrite.
Yeah, yellowstone would not exist without hunters? Oh wait there's no hunting allowed.

I'm not trying to make you feel bad. I in fact said it's absolutely ridiculous going after a lion trophy hunter. I tend to feel bad about the MILLIONS of cows being killed, not a few lions. There's over 200k lions in Africa. No risk of extinction. A lion is a ferocious beast that kills their own young and kills other animals all the time. They are also a threat to villagers and need to be hunted so that people fear them. I was actually just calling out the hypocrisy of people going after trophy hunters while eating factory farmed meat or hunting deer themselves. I have no ulterior motive and I tend not to force my beliefs on others or threaten death on someone. These lunatics on twitter give death threats to these trophy hunters and get them to lose their job. It's the most ridiculous hypocrisy I've ever seen.

Yellowstone would not exist if not for the hunter Teddy Roosevelt who established the park system against corporate interests for the sake of hunting.

But, no, Yellowstone does not pay for itself

Some national parks do allow hunting. Hunters, overall, spend about 1.5 billion in licenses and excise fees that support national conservation, and hunters make up most of the voting block that enables continued government support of conservation and national parks.

I do too... If hunting down things in the grocery store counts.
