Hunters usually target species that want resource investment disproportionate to associated health rewards. Costly signalling theory provides a possible description, proposing that hunters target species that impose high costs ( ag e.g. greater failure and damage dangers, reduced consumptive returns) given that it signals an ability to soak up behaviour that is costly. If expensive signalling is applicable to modern ‘big game’ hunters, we might expect hunters to pay for greater rates to hunt taxa with greater observed costs. Properly, we hypothesized that look rates could be higher for taxa being larger-bodied, rarer, carnivorous, or called dangerous or hard to hunt. Continue Reading
