About this book

Sometimes Hunting Can Seem Like Business provides insight into whether or how sport hunting might play a strategic role in the conservation and management of polar bear in Canada's North, and examines the economic benefits to Inuit and their communities, both in terms of its monetary and sociocultural importance by examining Inuit participation in the polar bear sporthunt in the communities of Taloyoak, Resolute Bay, and Clyde River.

At first glance, sport hunting may appear to have little to offer by way of insight about resource co-management. Yet, there are several important lessons to be learned from the way this aspect of the Inuit-polar bear relationship has evolved. For Inuit, the cultural, economic, and social aspects of polar bear hunting, including that carried out by visitors seeking tangible trophies, are equally intertwined.
