    what is the effect of hunting on the enviornment?

  • #2
    Keeps heards/populations healthy, population count where we can maintain it. A bunch of different things that are important. I am not a wildlife biologist so I'm not going to go into that kind of detail.

      If anything, it has to be favorable.

      If cow flatulance (farts) are polluting the atmosphere, deer flatulance must also be suspect. Ditto with the entire animal kingdom.

        hunters put a lot of money into the agencies that study and protect the environment.

          Read these links about the Kaibab and it will change the way you think and give you factual knowledge in conservation.

            Uncontrolled hunting can cause the elimination of species, as with the wolves and the plains bison, but controlled hunting keeps populations inside an area's capacity. If there was no hunting, the population would eat out all the food sources and eventually starve. Where I deer hunt in Sauk Co. Wisconsin, Earn-a-Buck has been going on for 25 years as well as multiple other special seasons to try and control the deer population, but the numbers just stay pretty even. The DNR even dropped a pack of 22 wolves off in Sauk Co. to help kill off the deer. The deer population stays high though because they have endless food due to the fact that most of the county is farm fields.

              just like some of the other guys said. you let the wildlife run high numbers they will eat all the feed for other species. and then the one with more dominace will die off cause they ate the food down to nothing. and diseases would be outraguos. then next would be possibly us
