What is Game Hunting?
Big-game hunting is the hunting of large game animals for meat, commercially valuable by-products, trophy/taxidermy, or simply just for recreation.
The term is often associated with the hunting of Africa’s “Big Five” games, and with tigers and rhinoceroses on the Indian subcontinent.

Is hunting cruel?
Hunters cause injuries, pain, and suffering to animals who are not adapted to defend themselves from bullets, traps, and other cruel killing devices.
Hunting destroys animal families and habitats and leaves terrified and dependent baby animals behind to starve to death.
How do you hunt in Africa?
Most hunting in Africa is conducted “safari-style,” where hunters drive around the hunting area in open-topped vehicles searching for a game or tracks of the game.
When the game is sighted, hunters stalk on foot, or when fresh tracks are spotted, hunters disembark to follow on foot, sometimes for many hours.
Is sport hunting ethical?
Hunters see the act of stalking and killing deer, ducks, moose, and another quarry as humane, necessary, natural, and thus ethical. Critics respond that hunting is a cruel and useless act that one should be ashamed to carry out.
