About Big Game hunting
Big game is a term that covers most animals larger than rabbits and squirrels that are typically pursued by hunters. Big-game hunting, when regulated and controlled as it is in most countries today, is a highly efficient tool to conserve wildlife. It’s important to understand that well-managed big-game hunting relies on conservative quotas determined by biologists and other professionals to maximize conservation benefits and minimize impact on the species as a whole. Hunters who pursue big game experience a personal involvement in nature and a rare chance to be participants in, rather than just observers of, the land and habitats in which they are hunting. Through this, most hunters gain a profound appreciation of the natural world and great respect for their quarry. Most hunters recall the taking of game animals among the most memorable moments of their lives. But there is far more to big-game hunting than the personal connection to nature it promotes. Hunting generates the bulk of revenues that are used for wildlife conservation across the world. Hunting in less developed regions creates incentives for local people to conserve wildlife and habitat, and provides employment and other economic benefits in rural areas. The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service noted in a recent press release, "Legal, well-regulated sport hunting, as part of a sound management program, can benefit the conservation of species by providing incentives to local communities to conserve the species and by putting much-needed revenue back into conservation."
