Read the comments and someone mentioned the conservation efforts of Kenya and what a great job they are doing, lol. There is also a lot of confusion regarding poaching, ivory, and hunting where it is all mixed up. But I didn't think it was as vile or hateful as usually, someone is really doing a pretty good job trying to refute with facts.

As far as celebrities, they are all pretty much hypocrites and even though they have a platform they don't have any credentials or real experience in conservation, so you almost have to laugh at their opinion.

La la land! No reality! Get a real job people! Let trained wildlife biologists do their real world jobs and you stick to your fantasy world.

Those comments would be funny if they weren't so sad.

Chelsea Clinton's comments were the best. Even her mother would be hard pressed to make a more factually incorrect statement than she did! :LOL:

Infuriating. Will increase poaching, make communities more vulnerable & hurt conservation efforts:

We are so fortunate Hillary didn't win the election!

You are especially fortunate. You get to bring your personal property back to America from Zimbabwe. (y)

Hmmm...maybe a few elephants, lions, Cape buff, leopards, crocs running around in la la land could change some “idiotologies”?

It's your right to hate hunting and choose not to hunt. You can abhor those who do hunt. But the reality is that the second you put a price on an animals head, the conservation begins. This guy - who is against hunting on a personal level - still gets it.

Until a person has been to Africa, when a drought has occurred, they cannot understand the amount of damage to the habitat that elephant do. I was at a 65 square mile reserve in the Eastern Cape which had 21 elephant and the habitat had been decimated. The animals were being fed hay to keep them alive. The PH said that the property could support about 6 elephant, and they needed to be culled. However, as we know doing that is a difficult task. I want to know how many of the people who are objecting to the ban being lifted have actually been to Africa and seen what is going on?

When I visited Kruger, the elephant were in the process of doing the same thing. Until I went to Africa, visit/hunt areas that elephant populations, I didn't realize the damage they do.

The balance of nature needs to be preserved. If hunting isn't allowed, the communities don't get the meat from the animals, any money from the hunts, and poachers will kill the animals for the ivory. Hunting is part of conservation. Let's be honest, if the hunter can't bring back a mount, then the number of hunters will decrease to almost nothing.

I don't want to see an unlimited number of elephant or lion permits issued, but responsible hunting will help preserve the habitat and help to curb poaching.

I’ve seen this video I was quite surprised how informative and honest he was for being a non hunter.

These ass hole celebs no absolutely nothing about everything except how to be perfect hippocrites. When it comes to wildlife conservation they know less than zero. I ask you then, name me one Hollywood personality who has donated a dime to anti poaching efforts. I seriously doubt it. They again play to their base of fans who as we know are for the most part not hunters. Again I say for the 100 th time , until we get a high powered PR firm or at least a division in say the NRA dedicated to publicity to immediately respond to issues on the web and in the media the general public will remain clueless.

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
