WILBUR SMITH’S books described a time when hunting was a contest between a skilled marksman and the animal. The aim was to kill cleanly with one shot, not only to spare suffering, but because a wounded animal is dangerous.
it surprises me that trophy hunters are happy to pose with telescopic rifles that can pick off a target from half a mile away, with little to compromise their personal safety.
why they need a photograph of this unfair contest is beyond me.
