Fieldcraft: Destination Africa – Episode 5, After the Trigger Pull
Fieldcraft: Destination Africa – Episode 5 explores what happens after the trigger pull. Legal, regulated hunting plays a critical role in local African economies and in the very conservation of the species being hunted.
It creates jobs and feeds the local people: local people are hired to butcher the meat, which makes indigenous protein affordable for the community.
Older animals pose a danger to the health of the herd.

Well-managed hunting programs can be very valuable to conservation efforts. Often times, hunting fees go to conservation efforts.
