    Ducks Unlimited has conserved 13,000,000 acres.

    Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever have enhanced over 6,100,000 acres (24,700 km2)—including planting grasslands, restoring wetlands, planting woody cover or food plots and purchased lands to provide habitat for pheasant, quail and other wildlife. This total also includes approximately 400,000 wildlife habitat projects, which have helped pheasant, quail and other wildlife.

    Meanwhile your 'spiritual-connection' has accomplished only two things: Jack and Shit.

    Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.

      I don't blame you for trying to change, because you were absolutely out in left field on the first one. You do jump around. Are you sure you're alright?

      You didn't mention any organization originally, and neither did I. How, then, I wonder, can you pick a fight with me on something I never even mentioned? Probably win a lot of "debates" that way, though, don't you?

      I've never met a true "conservation organization", ever, that I have a problem supporting.

      So now let's get back to you. You're alright with some "Dick Cheney wannabe" getting first crack at all of the choicest publicly owned wildlife, as long as they're willing to pay up for the privilege? Privately owned hunting marshes, clubs, and preserves also do some things for natural populations in general, but I still don't encourage them. I don't know, maybe it's the Democrat in me.

      There can be no protection locally if we're content to ignore the fact that there are no controls globally.
