Modern day hunting is rarely about "getting your own food" since you never have to live with the consequences. In other words, if you don't get something you don't go hungry.

Therefore, it's mostly about playing hunter and pretending that somehow you're having a wilderness experience. There's nothing rewarding or exhilarating about using modern technology while experiencing all the comforts of modern society that remotely resembles true hunting.

Is the issue here like the one suggested in Africa, where rewarding the locals with money and thus giving value to the animals stops them from killing them? The hunting is in fact part of a lerger conservation effort to ensure indigenous people value the lives of the animals?

I do not think you should kill any animal for sport unless it is overpopulated. The Polar Bear is an endangered species, let them roam. Save the planet!
