I have blogged about this topic before, but it has been awhile. The model of wildlife conservation on this continent has been the most successful in history. Yeah, yeah, I know that is a boring topic and can be an extensive one as well. However, if you hunt, fish, trap, enjoy our natural resources in any way or feel that conservation of those resources is important, then you need to understand this model.
Stumbled upon this relatively short article that explains it well. Take a minute our two and read it!
I have often said that hunters, anglers, and trappers were and continue to be the original conservationists. As a matter of fact, if you feel that conservation of our fish and wildlife resources is important the best thing you can do about that is to buy a hunting, fishing, or trapping permit. Better yet, buy all three! While you are at it, swing by the local sporting goods store and pick up some ammo and crankbaits!
