Michael Strickler Professor Euken English 101 01 February 2013 Hunting in America Hunting is a pastime that helps people become one with nature and frees them from their normal lives. When hunters get the chance to go hunting they are able to go to the woods where they can relax, and clear their minds. Hunting allows one to get back to the outdoors and experience what nature has to offer. “More than 38 million Americans hunt and fish.” (“Hunting Facts” 1). Location is the key to where big game and trophies are. To be a successful hunter one must prepare and utilize tools that are ideal for where they will set up and kill their game. Picking a good area to set up the equipment is very important. Hunters do this by scouting the woods looking for fresh markings such as rubbing/scrapping, feces, bedding, and traveling routes of the deer. Scrapes and rubbings are markings on trees and branches from the deer’s antlers. Scouting heightens the hunter’s chance of bringing home......

Rhino Case

...II. Define the Problem Case 27: Rhino Capture in Kruger National Park brings about many ethical questions and concerns one of the world’s greatest animals, the rhino. Kruger National Park (established in 1898) was a part of South African National Parks (SANParks). According to the case text, by the turn of the century white rhinos were said to not exist at Kruger National Park anymore. However in 1961, white rhinos were re-introduced to the park. In 2009, there were said to be 10,000 white rhinos and 500 black rhinos located within the park. Because of the significant number of rhinos located within the park, management from within decided to being selling some of the rhinos at auction; however, selling the rhinos was under one condition: “its removal could not negatively impact the populations from which it came.” White rhinos tended to sell faster than black ones because since they were less rare and were less aggressive. Some of the biggest issues presented in this case were: Kruger National Park did not know to whom they were selling the rhinos, poaching on Kruger National Park land for the rhinos horn (leaving rhinos dead or tranquilized and in pain to the point they could be killed by other animals,) and the loss of funding that Kruger Park was undergoing. In the Asian population, it was said that to rhino horns worked to retain their cultural beliefs and also that the horn of a rhino could cure cancer as it is said to be “a very beneficial aphrodisiac”, which in......

Hunting

...Savageless Many would argue that hunting sends us back to our primitive days when we lived only on the land and everything was used for money. It is actually quite the opposite of what most believe. Hunting is a way of life for some people and the only way we know how to get by. Hunting is by no means savage and is vital to everyday life. Without the hunters in the country we would be over run by animal populations and would have many predatory animals living in suburb communities putting our wellbeing at stake. Many people do not realize how much hunting indirectly influences their way of life. The meat in the grocery store was made in a more savage way than hunting. Slaughter houses are highly inhumane towards aimals. Hunting at least gives the animal free will to do whatever it wants in the wild. At a slaughter house animals have no hope to live any amount of time, but in the wild the animals are able to experience their natural habitat and be happy roaming the woods as they please. Many of the people who are against hunting are not even vegetarians and eat meat from the store and they are completely ignorant to the fact that what they are eating is killed in a horrible savage way. I am in no way saying that eating meat from the store is a bad thing to do, but only that venison is a more humane way of eating. Not only is it more humane its healthier than proccessed meat and has a less chance of carrying harmful bacteria gained from meat proccessors. Not only does the......

This demand has created organized international poaching criminal groups for profit, also effected to number of rhino in the world. One of numerous reasons for poaching rhinos is superstitious usage of their horns. In East Asia, rhino horns are used to produce traditional medicine to treat a variety of ailments. In Viet Nam, people see it as an esoteric medicine which can cure fevers, maintain beauty, and treat terminal illnesses. However, scientists shown that the main component of rhino horns is keratin, the same as in human nails. It means Vietnamese spend thousands of dollars for pharmacological equivalent to buy their fingernails. Moreover, in some Middle East countries, rhino horns are used to make hafts or amulets, representing for social status of locals. It had a devastating effect on population of rhino. Poachers can earn huge amounts of money if they huckster to the other countries through the network of transnational trafficking without the controlling of the authorities. The cost of one kilogram horn powder is $66.000 - more expensive than gold. Therefore, illegal hunters find all the possible artifices to get their purposes. They utilize diversified technologies such as silenced sedatives, night sight scopes, specialized equipments and experience freelances.

...Hunting It rose up inside of me, the sense of fear was undeniable, as if it were a coiled snake being taunted and ready to strike. The foul, acrid, bitter smell that clung to my nostrils made me gag. Sweat dripped down my back, as my body trembled and my heart beat furiously in my chest. Goosebumps rose, making the hair on my body stand on end. Fear gave way to revulsion as my eyes registered what was in front of me. Bile rose up in my throat. Taking a breath, I forced myself to tear my eyes away from the carnage that seemed to be swallowing me whole, trapping me in its embrace… As I stepped out of the dugout the smell of churned up earth, and excrement filled my nostrils. It smelled bitter, old, decayed and tainted, holding the stench of death along the trench lines. I breathed in, inhaling the cold crisp air of the Ypres making me shiver of what was to come. I could see the sun rising behind the thin veil of morning mist. Silhouettes of comrades’ breath hung in the air, and shadows of men running to and from positions, danced across the trench walls that were as jagged as steel tipped arrows, rising above the height of man like giants breaking the earth’s surface. Small patches of dew covered crevices on the East faces of no-man’s land, glinting in the sunlight like stars in the night sky. I could hear a stream flowing in the distance, water cascading over the rocks, teeming with wildlife, but this was not my place,......

Hunting

...Hunting Hunting has been around since before man was even thought of and has evolved ever since. Now only a sport, ounce was a skill used to survive. “Hunting is a natural, ethical, and healthy undertaking” (“History”, par1). Hunting is a way of life without hunting nothing would live that’s why we have a food chain. Herbivores eat plants, carnivores eat herbivores and bigger carnivores eat other carnivores. “Perhaps one of the eldest activities on the face of the planet is hunting” (“History of hunting”, par 1). Hunting has been one of the oldest activities known to mankind. During the first era of hunting men were to learn how to hunt so they could hunt daily and bring food home every night to eat. The women had the roll of staying home and preparing any meal brought in by the men. Unlike today hunting was used as a key to survival, and wasn’t used for sport. Every piece of the animal that was killed was used and nothing was wasted. The men also used hunting to prove who the bravest warrior was. The better of the warriors would hunt the ferocious animals that were found by their home. Several weapons where used from slings to spears made from wood and stone. To hunt bigger prey they would hunt in packs and the only trophies kept where antlers and teeth. And sometimes the skulls where kept for decoration or as symbols of a clan or family. In the second era which was the growth of civilization the roles of men as hunters started to change. Hunting became a task......

Rhino- How to Stop Poaching

...How would you reduce poaching if a rhino’s horn could be cut and re-grown in 6 years? The horn is cut off while the rhino is chemically immobilized (anaesthetized). The removal of the horn is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure, similar to cutting one’s hair or nails and should not cause the rhino any pain or injury. Once the antagonist is administered, the rhino can be up and back on its feet within a few minutes.   The risks associated with dehorning include those associated with anesthesia, cutting the horn off too close to growth point and, drugging and handling a very large animal and effects on behaviour.   There are always risks associated with anesthesia. Etorphine\M99, the drug used for immobilizing rhino is procedure is a strictly controlled, high schedule potent opioid. Newer drug combinations and experience have reduced the risks. The current calculated mortality risk for free ranging rhino to < 1%. This procedure should only be carried out by a ‘rhino experienced’ wildlife vet and team using the correct protocols and taking the relevant precautions, should perform the dehorning. Due to the continual growth of the horn, dehorning may need to be repeated every 18 – 24 months. Repeated exposure to anaesthesia may contribute to short and long-term health problem; and increases the mortality risk to between 1-2 %. Contradictory opinions were expressed at the workshop. A specialist veterinary aneasthetist confirmed that risks increase with frequency of......

Hunting

...Kristen Davis Hunting, whether being called cruel and murderous by animal rights organizations is a growing topic of conversation in our community as a social and economic issue. "How is comparing hunters to murderers and criminals different from racial/demographic profiling or stereo typing? This sort of thing is a prime example of hatred, intolerance, prejudice and discrimination. It is unacceptable to speak or act hatefully toward demographic groups based upon their race, religion, gender or sexual preference. But somehow it is ok to categorize responsible, law abiding citizens who hunt and own firearms as violent criminals. " (Lapierre) Though for me hunting goes much deeper than that, growing up on a ranch, waking up before the crack of dawn, devouring a plate of hot grits, wrapping a biscuit in foil and shoving it in my pocket and making my way through the trees and undergrowth to my favorite deer blind was just like for most people going to the supermarket. The only difference being I knew what I was eating, "in this day and age, we are detached from the realities of where our food comes from" (Lapierre). So for me it is difficult to understand how "it is acceptable to pay someone to kill the cows, pigs and chickens we purchase at the supermarket" (Lapierre) but then for me to do it myself is wrong. While many animals spend their lives in cramped cages these animals roamed free and were left in their natural habitat. Without hunter there to regulate the wild game......

Deer Hunting

...November 22, 2011 Deer hunting is a very demanding hobby. The one thing that everyone must keep in mind when hunting is your safety and the safety of others. The reason for this is that you are using a weapon that can cause serious harm to you or someone, but this is not what this essay is about. I want everyone to actually learn what it takes to be a hunter. Being a hunter takes skill and understanding how deer sense things. The first thing that comes to everyone’s mind when thinking about hunting is killing Bambie. This is not the way I think, because of how I was raised. I took up hunting at an early age. I would always go with my father. So, here is what I have learned about hunting deer. You, as a hunter have got to know where the deer are. This is the easy part. Just find some good land with a water source, and good food that they eat i.e. acorns, wild persimmons trees, apples trees, corn, clover, and winter rye. Scout the land after locating these, to see if you can find there bedding areas. Finding the bedding area is the hard part. Deer in general will bed down in areas where they feel protected. Like in open areas surrounded by thick brush, or in low lying areas. After finding these good spots look for trails leading to their food, and water sources. These trails are what will make you or break you when it comes time to kill that big buck. The trail usually will lead to natural pinch points in the land. This is where you want to be hunting at due to the high......
