haresfur:  good comments.   If you use the whole fish the way I do, the only thing you toss back in the river are the entrails which disappear much faster than meat-heavy carcasses.

Fisher-people, eh?   Recreational fishermen used to be the standard term.  The best gender-neutral term is anglers.  

And yes, anglers can be very disrespectful of the environment, of their fellow anglers (sister anglers?), of First Nations,  and of other recreational users.  The deeply entrenched support for 'open-access' style angling (unrestricted access, unlimited effort) causes lots of congestion, crappy mediocre fishing, poor economic outcomes and occasionally violence. 

You are in part right about the source of the attitudes to FNs.  But that deserves a separate post.

Hei Lazy8,

What drives me a tad crazy here in British Columbia are all the righteous folks who dump on First Nations for wasting fish or wasting this or that when their fellow righteous culturally superior pasty-faces are big wasters of fish, for example.

 Most cut fillets, cut out the ribs and toss the carcass and head.  The alternative is to leave the rib bones in (remove them after cooking) and use the tail, carcass and head to make soup, chowder or a spaghetti sauce.  

Besides, if you are travelling with harvested fish, having the rest of the fish on hand can help one minimize problems with conservation officers who typically insist on being able to identify the harvested fish.   Salmon and trout cheeks are thought by some to be a delicacy.  Personally I like the chewy texture.
 
For perspective, I am half Norwegian and grew up on Nazi occupation stories.  During that time many Norwegians starved.  My capo terrorist grandfather kept guns not to shoot Germans but rather to hunt fresh meat to supplement the family diet.  He did so at considerable risk.  

So I am hardwired for fish and do not waste food.   I do feel sorry for about 40% of North Americans who work extremely hard to eat themselves to death and in the process typically waste massive amounts of food.  

End of rant....

The best thing I've heard about trophy hunters is that they are highly unlikely to shoot me by accident because they will see that my rack isn't big enough (although it's improving with age).

Don't hunt bear myself but I know plenty who do, and yes they eat the meat.

And yes, I've had it. And that's why I don't hunt bear.

Blech. I've heard that bear is not very tasty. The trouble with leaving apex predators totally alone is that we don't have any natural ecosystems anymore. My belief is that people are not going to leave so we have to manage the systems. Australians killed off their carnivorous marsupials about 60,0000 years ago so the main apex predator for kangaroo is the Holden ute. We have a weird (to me) system here where they hire professional hunters for kangaroo, wild pig, and wild dog control, but heaven forbid someone get some meat or enjoyment out of the population control.

Note: I am not defending this (insert your favourite sexual organ). Especially since they didn't stick around - if it was getting too dark to track the bear, he shouldn't have speared it. That being said, I understand that bow hunting is pretty accepted and have heard claims that an animal shot with an arrow is more likely to drop quickly than a poor gun shot.

The best thing I've heard about trophy hunters is that they are highly unlikely to shoot me by accident because they will see that my rack isn't big enough (although it's improving with age).

Though of course he also had 'assistance' in the hunt from a couple of local outfitters.
