* ''Series/CrocodileHunter'': Ecological awareness need not be a hindrance to the trope. The late Steve Irwin ran around in khaki shorts, and when he captured crocodiles to relocate them, he got to jump and wrestle them, which was [[RuleOfFun far more exciting]] than to have him [[WhyDontYaJustShootHim just shoot them]].

* Not-so-great (but still important) white hunters are a thing in most European countries, for the simple fact that they enact a control on animal populations such as deers, so these do not go out of control for simple lack of predator species like wolves or bears (that were driven away over the centuries) who would otherwise curb them. They are usually seen as "great" by their rural communities for keeping nature's balance in check.

* Kenneth Anderson was a hunter and conservationist in the same vein as Jim Corbett, who devoted much of his time to tracking down, in the words of one of his book titles, "Man Eaters and Jungle Killers", targeting rogue elephants, man-eating tigers and leopards, and the infamous [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sloth_bear_of_Mysore Sloth Bear of Mysore]], which had maimed or killed upwards up three dozen people.

* In ''StarWarsTheOldRepublic'', the Consular's first companion is a Trandoshan named Qyzen Fess. Hunting is a religious rite among his people with their goddess keeping score of a hunter's lifetime kills. (After the Consular defeats an enemy who managed to get the drop on him, he sees them as an avatar or "herald" of his goddess) Sentient or non-sentient matters little, though Qyzen prefers the latter. (They are bitter rivals to the Wookiees, however, and killing a Wookiee is a ''lot'' of "points." Qyzen even gifts the Consular with the pelt of a particularly difficult to kill Wookiee). Before deciding to go on his sacred hunt, he used to be a BountyHunter. A character comments that if he enjoyed hunting criminals as much as he liked hunting hostile wildlife, he'd be a household name. In the Knights of the Fallen Empire arc, a non-Consular Outlander can only get him to sign on with their team if they prove themselves by taking out several world bosses.

* Maston Thrust in ''Film/TheLastDinosaur''. He's a world famous hunter and wants to hunt the eponymous last dinosaur, a ''TyrannosaursRex''. Interestingly he considers himself the last of his kind too as he says so at the end of the movie.
