"too many people couldn't control their lusts"

3 posts on THR, all 3 are new threads. All questionable.

And in the second place, it had a heck of a lot more to do with commercial market hunting then sport hunting.

Sport hunters were not filling horse drawn wagons with Passenger Pigeons or Geese & Ducks.
But market hunters were.

It was a combination of both, I think. But you are correct, hunting for profit did the damage in the largest numbers.

Ohhhkay...so that's an interesting historical tidbit.

Why are you bringing it up now? Is there some new concern on this front or just a bit of nostalgic debate?

I think it goes hand-in-hand with a similar post in General Gun Discussions re: use of lead shot. Not so much wanting an answer as wanting to stir the pot.

Methinks I smell a troll....

Just throwing the puck out to watch people fight over it isn't High Road.

Do you have a real question? If so, I suggest starting a new thread with a legitimate question.
