Hunt with a camera, not with a gun.
"I joined a friend on a concession off Tanzania's Lake Manyara, but every time I pulled out my rifle, I hesitated. It just didn't feel right. I didn't fire a single shot on the trip.
And when my companion dropped a zebra, I walked over to examine the body and studied the face. Staring straight back at me were the eyes of my polo pony. That was it. I couldn't do this anymore."

Geoffrey Kent, co-founder of Abercrombie and Kent , remembers the moment he put down the rifle for good.
