The thrills experienced by ‘hunters’ whose delight is in turning living animals into bloody carcasses are real enough…The sense of power gives a boost to maladjusted egos….That type of hunter is more numerous than one likes to believe; and they’ve one trait in common—they take no chances of being hurt themselves. The sporting idea that an animal should be given a fighting chance for life seems fantastic to them.“—Alexander Lake, Hunter’s Choice, 1953
