Who Bites the Bullet First? The Susceptibility of Leopards Panthera pardus to Trophy Hunting
TLDR
It is shown that adult male and female leopards share similar incident rates to encountering hunters but adult males are the most susceptible to hunting due to hunter preference for large trophies, and sub-adult leopard rarely encounter hunters and are the least attractive trophies.

TLDR
Assessment of the significance of lions to the financial viability of trophy hunting across five countries to help determine the financial impact and advisability of the proposed trade restrictions recommends that interventions focus on reducing off-takes to sustainable levels, implementing age-based regulations and improving governance of trophy Hunting.
Effects of Trophy Hunting on Lion and Leopard Populations in Tanzania
TLDR
Lion population trends in protected areas where lion abundance has been directly measured and data on the frequency of lion attacks on humans in high-conflict agricultural areas are summarized and quantitative analyses suggest that annual hunting quotas should be limited.

Lethal control of African lions (Panthera leo): local and regional population impacts
Large carnivores have declined worldwide, largely through conflict with people. Here, we quantify the impact of lethal control, associated with livestock depredation, on a population of African lions
Sustainable trophy hunting of African lions
TLDR
A simple non-invasive technique for estimating lion age in populations lacking long-term records is presented, and it is suggested that quotas would be unnecessary in any male-only trophy species where age determination could be reliably implemented.
Potential of trophy hunting to create incentives for wildlife conservation in Africa where alternative wildlife‐based land uses may not be viable
There is a lack of consensus among conservationists as to whether trophy hunting represents a legitimate conservation tool in Africa. Hunting advocates stress that trophy hunting can create
Social variation of lions in a male-depopulated area in Zambia
TLDR
A limited number of males are allowed to manage more females, counterbalancing high male harvest in the Luangwa Valley, and this social system differs from those found in previous studies of lion populations.
