Inverse hunting

or, indeed, Gnitnuh.
  [vote for,

Strongly suggested by the linked idea.

To participate in Inverse Hunting, you first need to turn up at one of MaxCo's Wildlife Parks.

Our Parks are located at various locations, worldwide and otherwise. Each park is densely populated with fierce predators, such as lions, tigers, bears or lawyers, appropriate to the local environment. These animals have been trained to associate the smell of peppermint with food.

After the waiver-signing ceremony, you will be stripped of all belongings, issued with a compass, a hunting knife and appropriate clothing for the weather, and dropped off in the middle of the park.

Did we mention that the clothing has been doused in peppermint oil? The clothing has been doused in peppermint oil.

If you arrive at our Reception Lodge, you will be allowed to keep any trophies which you have collected along the way, as well as your self-esteem. If you do not arrive at our Reception Lodge, then clearly the trophy issue does not arise and the self-esteem issue is moot.

       NEWS FLASH   

       "Disemboweled man found in snowdrift twenty steps from Maxco lodge entrance wearing only shoes smelling of peppermint. Claw marks of lawyers show clearly in the video. More at 11. "

       //Disemboweled man// Most predators are quite picky. You're more likely to find a disemmanned bowel.

       Your right! I have never seen the corpse of lawyer kill, just hearsay about the party of the first part. Just lucky I Guess.

       /The clothing has been doused in peppermint oil./   

       I hope you will exempt the standard Maxco bikini briefs that I expect come with the clothing. That oil gets things pretty warm.

       //bikini briefs that I expect come with the clothing//   

       What do you mean, come _with_ the clothing?

       Alternatively, participants could be issued with a veteranarian's field kit, and go out and save injured/dying animals.
Normal hunting = fewer living animals.
Inverse hunting = more living animals.
Although I could be getting overly pedantic... it could be a "reverse" / "inverse" thing. I'm sure your idea is more "reverse" hunting..?
neutrinos_shadow, Feb 23 2016

       Normal hunting = people hunt animals.
Inverse hunting = ...?

       The problem is that there is no linguistically consistent definition of inverse, reverse, obverse or converse. It's perverse, and adverse to precise usage.

       Reach in and pull a bullet from a bloody and grievously wounded stag, hurl it as hard as you can into a distant rifle, retrieve the bullet from the rifle and with your bare hands shove it back into the casing. That's inverse hunting.
the porpoise, Feb 23 2016

       //Normal hunting = people hunt animals// In western society where there is no need, only perverts hunt animals. Normal hunting is when animals hunt such perverts. I therefore fully approve of this idea. Can the perverts all be required to wear moron Trump comb-overs?

       [xen], tomorrow I shall go and have a MacDonald's especially for you. Anyway, everyone knows that eating too many vegetables stunts brain development.

       Enjoy your toxic, perfumed, dyed, carcinogenic muck. The cows were probably fed on Agent Orange Monsanto produced Frankenstein fodder. I trust you get regular checks for (inter alia) CJD, colon cancer and Alzheimer's disease? I won't gloat when you succumb. Lead on McBroccoli !! :-) ha

       You will be glad to know that I shall. Of course, if the animals had been hunted in the wild...   

       I should also point out that vegetarianism - apart from leading to transmissible spongiform smugness - is (a) remarkably tedious and (b) invariably fatal in the long run.   

       I shall add an order of those crispy battered (and, indeed, batteried) chicken fillets to my indulgence, specially for you.
MaxwellBuchanan, Feb 23 2016

       What's that you say, [xen]? "Try one of those veal and foie-gras pasties with the larks'-tongue topping"? Well, I was trying to take it easy after tonight's curry (panda is soooo moreish), but I'll see what I can do.

       Best consumed as you sit at the edge of a flat earth.

       Yes, I do live in East Anglia.
MaxwellBuchanan, Feb 23 2016

       If England was a person, this is the tumorous outcrop where its arse would be, whilst folk like me inhabit the control panel brain area. Ha.
xenzag, Feb 23 2016

       Ooh, somebody could use some more fish in their diet.

       Described in "Revelation Space" by Alastair Reynolds, except the hunters are post-Singularity cyborgs and the hunted are immortal rich people.

       A knife?!
