Because the rest of the world isn’t willing to foot the bill to fund parks/refuges and enough rangers to protect against poachers. These big game hunters spend tens of thousands to go on a very controlled hunt. Most of that money goes to paying for the day to day operations of the parks and it’s employees.
The game these people are allowed to hunt are usually non-reproducing/sick/old animals. Often they’re still a threat to the younger of their species. Again, it’s very controlled so only so many are given out a year.
Big game hunting is a way of exploiting available resources available to a developing country. We did it with the Bison. I'm not a big gun-nut, but my husband is, so sometimes we go hunting together. I have Corbett .275, though I rarely use it . But I like viewing, so recently we bought a great rifle scope (www.atncorp.com/smart-hd-weapon-sight). I haven't checked it yet, but I look forward to use it! I always come back home being very excited after viewing the wild animals and the birds so close up.

Because of money. It gives a lot of money to countries that provide with it. I like hunting but personally, I'm against big game hunting. But we can't do anything to prevent it, unfortunately. I follow hunting news and trends here huntingfishingplus.com/. Hope to see the ban for bgh soon here.
