Re: Ibex hunting in CH

I think the biggest issue non-hunters have with hunting is that most people whoíve never hunted canít fathom the fact that it is both fun and a skill. The Alpine Ibex is a magnificent beast that Iíve been lucky enough to see in the wild on more than one occasion. It is also one that I myself would never dream of shooting.

The issue is that while there are people there will be hunters. If this is banned then it wonít stop Ibex getting shot, it would only likely increase the amounts of illegal hunting activity. I would much prefer that the few Ibex that are shot are done so in a heavily regulated environment that provides money for the canton.
