your entitled to your opinion as i am of mine.boo hoo jerk.
Not really just my opinion...it is a societal norm! Making a joke about watching a human being die is NOT FUNNY...and it doesn't make you a jerk for making the joke...it just makes you SAD.

You seem to be very proud of your opinion...I would suggest you call the Secret Service detail protecting Former First Lady Hillary Clinton and tell them that you would like to watch her die...they will be more than happy to explain to you societal norms.

He states, although he has photographed PEOPLE who have lost everything (including their family members) in natural disasters all over the world, he has NEVER photographed anything as sad as this lion dying!
Folks this is the misplaced empathy we face today. Animals are more important thepan people. Now that is sad.

Yip. That is typical animal rights talk. Very sad.

However. And please see this where it comes from. In rural Africa we become blunted to human demise and suffering. I have seen thousands of people die, working in tribal conflict (faction war zones) and because of HIV and related disease. It takes only so long to become blunted , primarily for self preservation, to these inevitable deaths - often self inflicted. Hence I have also erred to the side where seeing such an animal suffer, and die, has a bigger impact on me than the former...

I am 100% for ending that lion's slow dying process with a well placed soft 3 months earlier

Nature is cruel, that is no way to die........but it happens if you live long enough.

Yes the way the lion died was sad, but that’s what makes us who we are....Hunters. We feel the pain of his death, we’re not cold blooded killers the antis make us out to be.

I have never had to much feeling for a predators death. They are so humane when they kill their prey. Kind of look at them as competitors.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference

Good morning friends

i‘ve taken to heart a suggestion to tell my story about a lion hunt 37 years ago. ‘I don’t know, but am thinking there are site rules as to posting and file type. Three of the four posts (chapters?) are done, I took time away from here to write up the story. I have a couple of photos too.

also, I’m going to dissemble the rifles and see if Butch may have signed them. I’ll let you know.
