If a certain huntable species' population is down, perhaps way down to the point you'd be unlikely to fill your bag. Do you or would you keep purchasing a license or stop to save money?

    I don't hunt turkey for that very reason.

      I watched a recent episode of 'The Last Alaskan' and was disappointed to see a total lack of conservation. While outside he spotted a spruce grouse and ran in to get his .22. He got the first one and was happy to have a good meal. Then he spots the others and proceeds to wipe out the entire flock - 6 or 7 in all. What does he think he is going to eat next year? I don't know the population numbers of the grouse, but to take that many, in the middle of winter, from the same group does not go to good conservation. JMHO.
      I've never seen the show - is it worth checking out?

There are a lot of species, magnificent specimens that are on the endangered species list that I ate as a child and would sure like to sample again. LOL. The bayou is my backyard and it's beautiful here! That is the reason I use for purchasing a high dollar Texas license. And will continue to as long as my money and my mind will allow.

        Nice picture! Makes me want to build a pirogue

          In Alabama we have just a general license for hunting.
