    No I don't. The world is kind of like a giant aquarium, when too many fish are put into it, eventually it will correct itself and kill off those the aquarium can't support, the world will probably, do the same some day. There are over seven billion people in the world it would be impossible to develop a plan that would even interest more than a small number of them. The world is on its own, as well as those populating it. Sorry, I don't try and cut down trees with a pocket knife, just ain't worth the effort.

    Would you want to be the guy who shot the one and only bison in 300 years in your country and everyone on a guitar forum half a word away are talking about you?
    But then doesn’t it happen all the time in North America where a farmer shot a very rare specimen of a species that used to be abundant?
    If it’s cute, shoot it.
    If you have never seen it, shoot it.
    When in doubt, shoot it.
    What the hell, just shoot it

    that is a man standing on top of and another in front of... a pile of bison skulls. Context is powerful.

    the second pic gives a sense of size... just, really, hard to grasp.

    You know, some like to shoot 'em with a camera, then again, some like to shoot 'em with.... Me? That old toxocara vitulorum risk just kind of turns me off. I just leave 'em be.

    Down off highway 46 between the 99 highway, and Maricopa, there is a BLM property south of the highway back up in the hills where they have some elk. A good sum of money was paid for a young healthy bull to try and get the herd into better shape. Someone shot the poor thing, and carved off a haunch, and left the rest for the buzzards. Man, you talk about outrage, you could SEE it boiling out of the folks involved. No, it wasn't me. I wouldn't shoot it, or eat if I shot it, which I didn't. I'd rather hit the drive through, and pickup a nice angus burger and some fries. The cook usually has the decency to rake off the stuff that's moving in the stuff he cooks, that's good enough for me.

    My local Moose story was real enough.

    You said it, I thought it, but I put both feet over the keyboard to keep from making one.

    that the bison might be dangerous and could threaten the well being of their citizens. Remember, if the only tool you know is the hammer, then all available tools become hammers.

    I don't think I follow your math. I live in a state that has wolves and more wolves = less everything else.

    Yeah, lest blame the wolves and wipe them out.
    Let’s wipe everything out, just to be sure

    I’m outraged!

    The rootstocks that saved France’s vineyards were not from California, but Missouri!
