The Alaska Fish & Game is proving that "Trophy" hunting can actually be BETTER for the animal population under some circumstances. A number of years ago they changed the moose regulations (in most areas, not all) to where you had to shoot either a spike/fork horn OR a moose with a rack that is 50 inches or has at least 3 brow tines on one side. In some areas they have upped it to 4 brow tines. The moose population is on the rise. I'm not sure how this works out, I guess when you shoot the spike/fork you're getting rid of the ones that are dumb enough to stick their head out. When you kill the larger ones I guess you could be taking out the ones with genes that are going bad. I'm not really sure...but it is working.
