Thats a Blessbok. The person sitting next to me is the skinner. Yes, I have got shoulder mounts done by the taxidermist . I also shot an Impala , Springbok and Steenbok which are now hanging in my house. In my post "hunting abroad" a few members have criticised "hunting". I personally feel it is a matter of choice. (Somewhat like one chooses to be a vegetarian or a nonvegetarian.) In some places they have put the hunter and the poacher at par with each other. Yes the poacher and the hunter are both killers. But the basic difference (apart from the legal aspect and the ethics which I have talked about in detail there) is that "The poacher kills for meat" while the Hunter hunts for the "Trophy". All the animals I shot were big males. Some had probably crossed their breeding age . A poacher on the other hand would shoot anything which he came across....be it a baby , a female or an immature male. Today whenever I look at my trophies I feel a sense of satisfaction. They remind me of every moment I spent in the "savanna" and the lovely time I had there. I also feel that when you get the taxidermy done the animal is immortalized, and like a priceless piece of jewellery is passed on from one generation to the other.

Prashant: "the poacher kills for meat, the hunter kills for the "Trophy". You could not be more wrong with your definitions. The poacher hunts/kills outside the law, without regard for seasons and regulations. He kills an animal in order to kill, or to utilize but part of it. He hunts were he is forbidden to. He abides by no ethics. He does not care how long the animal suffers. He mainly kills for commercial gain, or the thrill of killing. Yet, there are "poachers" who hunt ethically and do so to feed their families.
The "hunter", on the other hand, abides by law and ethics. He does not waste the meat. If he does not like the venison, he gives it to those that do. He may, or may not, preserve and treasure the trophy. But not doing so, does not make him a poacher. Just as the "trophy" hunter who hunts ethically is not a poacher. Only when his only concern is the trophy, going so far as to kill, or wound, several animals in order to get a bragging size trophy, while wasting the meat, would I put him even below the poacher.
And yes, where the expansion of human populations has destroyed or limited the natural habitat, and intense management of game (and hunting), is required to maintain wild game populations; hunting/culling of females and fawns may be called for if numbers exceed the carrying capacity of the available habitat.

Happy Hunting!

Dear "Two Rivers",
Please go through the topic "Hunting Abroad". You may find it interesting with lots of different opinions. It would be nice if you could put up some comments there.
You have quoted only a part of what I wrote.....missing out on....."But the basic difference (apart from the legal aspect and the ethics which I have talked about"....

You have mentioned exactly the same things which have already been discussed in "Hunting Abroad".
