60 minutes did an incredible job with this.

Almost makes up for "The Guns of Autumn".

Kudos to 60 Minutes and CBS for this one. Unfortunate the animal rights idiots "won" their battle.

Re: The End of a Conservation Era?

Just watched it...very interesting. At the end of the day, I absolutely believe that judicious and controlled hunting is key to conservation and actually improving species quality. I don't know what to think about the exotic hunts in Texas. Are they fenced? Are the ranchers looking at big dollars and using an essentially fail proof conservation argument to make a lot of money?

It just all seems so distant from my idea of conservation-big ranches, exotic animals, big dollars. I have become used to my local brand of conservation...shoot a doe or two, buy some seedlings, and volunteer a few days a year. Don't really know what to think about the report yet. Thanks for sharing it.

Re: The End of a Conservation Era?

I think that it was Kenya that banned hunting of elephants many years ago. The ban took money away from their conservation efforts. Thier elephant population took a nose dive due to poachers because there was no money to combat the poachers.

Another country in Africa did the opposite, and their elephant population thrived.

When there is incentive to preserve wildlife, be it on a fenced ranch, or in Africa, then man will see to it that populations thrive.
