The Crowd is not the sum of its parts.
You're arguments are weak, they are not built on data or statistic, you have not quoted a single peer reviewed scientific paper on the subject. You use a government you admit to be corrupt as an example but then state it's corrupt on counter example to dismiss it. It's nothing more than a bunch of double speak to excuse calls for death against humans for engaging in activities that you do not like.
You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

Plus...I would doubt there are ANY novices hunting elephant... maybe the first and only elephant... but not hunting in general. The area to make a good shot on an elephant is quite small. there is a lot of tissue to punch through and it has to hit a vital organ.. (brain or heart).. or at that distance you are looking at a world of hurt from a pissed off pachyderm.
I can't see a professional hunter guiding a complete novice to hunting on an elephant hunt. even if a newbie wanted to do it. WAY to dangerous. Plus.. being able to not only hit that small target.. but with a large caliber weapon... when three tons of charging death can be on you? Not likely.
Just to point out.. unlike all the articles that have presented to you.. which are based on the science of wildlife management...
The opinion piece that you linked to has no science behind it.
