and what should i pay
Why would you want to shoot a lynx?? You cannot eat a lynx or a wolf and unless it is raping your livestock then an only assume you are doing it for fun or because you can.
Each to their own, but as an ethical stalker/shooter I find this unacceptable.
I hope you pay a lot for this, an awful lot.
You dont know this guy yet you confirm to him you are superior to him.
I dont eat fox but it dont stop me shooting them because they are vermin, as are i suspect wolf and lynx.
Humans are pre wired with fight or flight response

Lynx are extremely efficient predators of roe deer, I am sure some of our Scandinavian contributors will give more details. Now I have no interest in shooting them but that does not mean they don’t need controlling, especially if you want enough excess roe to be able to harvest a few for your freezer.
Wolves will seek out and kill your hunting dogs as well as knocking off live stock and keeping the deer numbers down, again I don’t want to shoot a wolf personally but that does not mean that in curtain circumstances it is not necessary.
I expressed a view nothing more. If you want to shoot lynx you can same as my dog can lick its arse, but it is not for me.

Just did some a little research there and found this for you if it's any help, seems a good place to go
They don't have lynx but the have most others e.g. deer, boar, bear, fox the list goes on
Hope this helps,
Hi Short shot
I have just looked at your profile which is un filled, why not fill your profile in and tell us about yourself and what you hunt and shoot ? before you get sarky with every one else on here about what they may want to hunt Just because you think it so unethical to you.
we have seen these what appear to be quite innocuous posts get out of hand before, so can we please avoid it this time. A member has asked for advice on hunting a particular quarry species, and has been subjected to attack because someone else disagrees with his choice of hunt. Now if the comments and replies could be kept within the forum requirement of civility then peace will reign.
Short shot, you have four post's to your credit only joined this month and already are in the midst of a potential nuisance thread. Now as you have already indicated a willingness to translate text into Yorky for the benefit of members, perhaps you would like to post an introduction (a site requirement) also for the benefit of members.
A clever man knows his strengths, a wise man knows his weaknesses
I have updated the profile and will do the introduction if I care to stay a member. The reason I got sarcastic was in response was the implication that "I am superior" to the poster which is simply and clearly not true and was intended to provoke a response, which it did. I have edited the post.
Just not overly keen on shooting predators unless they are a problem.
Incidentally, I was on a driven Boar shoot in Croatia a few years ago and a Wolf came by me at a very short distance, I found it fascinating to see and know it did not know I was so close to it.
I did not shoot it and was B*****d by the forester, as apparently, it was resposible for a lot of dogs and poultry being savaged in the area.
This was not to be confused with the European Coyote, a similar animal but different !!
