The places in Africa where trophy animals are in the most stable numbers are where they're legally hunted. It seems the profit motive in an impoverished country motivates the stewardship of hunted animals. Where hunting is banned their is no incentive to protect the animals and poachers are decimating their numbers -- sometimes to extinction levels. Of course, many Left leaning people are more interested in how a position makes them feel about themselves rather than results. So they'll bash Nikon and big-game hunting -- regardless of whether or not that position actually helps preserve the animals they claim to love.
faterikcartman: Joe, I know Kata has an optional waist strap for other packs and wouldn't be surprised if it is available for this one as well. Sure, I know, then it's even more expensive. I own three Kata bags and love them all.
And if I didn't make this clear -- the optional waist strap is heavy duty and well padded.

I have Ansel Adams' "The Camera", "The Negative", and "The Print". Does the book offer anything "The Negative" doesn't cover? I spent most of my photographic life shooting positive slide film. I'm really not a post-processing digital expert so I'm not sure if this sort of work is really helpful today. Personally, I regularly get properly exposed shots right out of the camera, or have a good sense what needs correction/adjustment. But I'm not sure if that's from reading about Adam's zone-system, or years of experience shooting slides and their tight range.
