Is it really good for the population to 'cull' the healthiest adult males?That not what they do.
From the BBC article: ""If you kill the wrong animal you pay a fine and get nothing, and you could lose your licence."

In GraubŁnden, he says, you cannot shoot a male unless you have first shot a female - and the hunting window is just two to three weeks to do so."
Yes, we can all read. So in order to kill the healthy adult male with the biggest horns they have to kill a female first. In Graubunden. Where you say this isn't an issue anyway, as it's only in Valais that the paid-for trophy hunting exists.

So that's all right then.
