Hunting is a cruel, archaic practice, and despite what some individuals claim, hunting purely exists for the pleasure of the hunter. It does not have any grounds in wildlife management or conservation. Research demonstrates that hunting is not an effective or efficient form of wildlife management. It does not control animal numbers but instead creates the optimal survival conditions with reduced competition for species to thrive. There are more effective and humane alternatives to wildlife management, including habitat deterrence and translocation.
