    Those were subsistance hunters prior to modern
    game management. All state agencies follow the basic blueprint laid out by Aldo Leopold in his seminal book Game Management.

      that the extinction of species was totally driven by subsistence hunting.  We were pointing out other reasons extinctions happened that had no connection with subsistence or even game management, but were from other reasons - wanton slaughter without any relation to management for sustainability and political calculations that extinction was a good outcome.  I take issue with your implication that modern management is taking place wrt wolves - they had it and then politicians overruled wildlife biologists and the slaughter has resumed.

      •  interesting theory but conjecture means not much (0+ / 0-)

        you might want to find an instance of politicians over ruling wildlife biologists or modern hunters leading to extinction.

        I mean you can't just make things up. oh, yes you can.
