Pornography is perceived by analysts as a facter that contributes toward serial killers' violent fantasies--particularly "bondage-type" pornography portraying domination and control over a victim.
Hunting magazines contain page after page of (a) pictures of hunters, weapon in hand, posing in dominating positions over their lifeless victims, (b) advertisements offering a huge range of trophy hunts, and (c) stories of hunters' "exciting" experience of "near misses" and danger.
These pages no doubt titillate the hunter, fueling his own fantasies and encouraging him to plan more and more trophy hunts.
Trophy hunters often hire a camera person to film their entire hunts in the bush, including the actual moments when animals are shot and when they die. These films are made to be viewed later at will, presumably for self-gratification purposes and to show to other people--again the longing "to be important" factor?
This could also be seen as a form of trophy which mirrors in some respect pornographic "snuff" videos known to be made by some serial killers. Other serial killers have tape-recorded the screams of their victims, which were kept for later self-gratification.
In The Serial Killers, the authors also wrote about Robert Hansen, an Alaskan businessman and big-game enthusiast who hunted naked prostitutes through the snow as though they were wild animals, then shot them dead. Hansen would point a gun at his victim, order her to take off all her clothes, and then order her to run. He would give his victims a "start" before stalking them. The actual act of killing his victims, Hansen once said, was an "anti-climax" and that "the excitement was in the stalking."
How many times have I heard trophy hunters describing their actions in similar terms? "No, hunting is just about killing," they say. "Its also about the stalk, the build-up to the kill."
Hansen was a trophy hunter, who, according to Wilson and Seaman, had achieved "celebrity by killing a Dall sheep with a crossbow." He also trophy hunted women but, as a married man with a family, he couldnt put his human trophies next to those elk antlers and bear skins in his den. As an alternative, Hansen, it was revealed, took items of jewellery from his victims as "trophies" and hid these in his loft so that, as with his animal trophies, he, the hunter, could relive his fantasy-inspired killings whenever he wished to.
This type of arrow head give a wider cut on the animals and their death becomes more horrific and its more ways for the other disgusting bowkillers to show off their destruction of innocent sentient life. Whats scary is that these arrows being shot right near your back yard with your children and pets at risk of being hit by one. Look at one google map of bowkilling done very close to homes.
Arsonists burned churches while deer hunting 3 Students Held in Church Fires Set in Alabama Submit letters to the NY Times at: firstname.lastname@example.org. March 9, 2006 By RICK LYMAN Three college students from the prosperous suburbs of Birmingham, Ala., were arrested yesterday in the burning of nine Baptist churches last month in rural Alabama. Federal officials said the fires were a "joke" that spun out of control while the students were deer hunting. After initially setting ablaze five churches in the county just south of Birmingham, two students burned four additional churches days later in more remote areas, hoping to divert investigators, the authorities said. Two students, Benjamin N. Moseley and Russell L. DeBusk Jr., both 19, from Birmingham-Southern College, were arrested on the campus after admitting their involvement in the fires to federal agents, officials said. The agents were led to the students by tire tracks at several burned churches, officials said. Several hours later, the authorities arrested Matthew Lee Cloyd, 20, a student at the University of Alabama, Birmingham, whose mother owns the Toyota 4Runner that left the tracks, federal agents said in an affidavit with the criminal complaint.
