Yeah i hope you didnt think that my response was just directed at you Bryce. I just wanted to emphasize that there are many consciousness and respectful hunters. I think hunting is def a great family activity and really is necessary to keep many animal populations healthy when other human activities such as farming could allow for populations to grow beyond actual carrying capacities. This killing of these extremely old fish is absolutely unnecessary and us no benefit to the populations

Indeed this is more a hunting trophy, than a caught fish, Right?
Hunting is important, or like they say in South Park:
"But why hunt? Because else they,ll die!"

Good reason for hunting, we have about 800 wild boars too much in our woods, so that has gotto be dealt with, or they come into the city's to eat.
No problemo.

But if a Gar is rarely big, killing it shouldt still not be even a concideration.

Those are one of the groups that get whoop@SS here.

We have some game fishing also for trout/salmon but you are very limited to the number of fish you are allowed to take home.


over here it's catch as much as you can,but in ponds with bred fish
An if it's barbecuetime, we go, and catch a bunch.
All taken home, often we drive past 6 houses, giving them some, for it's allways a lot.
