This is a pretty good video for those interested in who owns wildlife (I'll cut to the chase and tell you we do, we the people of each state) and what is the background for our current legal way of dealing with wildlife ownership.
The initial speaker is a bit much with the books background and what not, but the vid quickly progresses to a background of wildlife appropriate shots and historical photos with a very informative narration.
Almost a year ago today, I stood in some snowy buffalo grass and knelt next to a sage. I remember smelling both the sage and the hair smell from the animal I'd harvested. I carefully tore the portion of a plastic license that said Dec, and then on the other side I found the number 30 and made a slight nick in the plastic. Taking out a pencil stub I scratched my autograph on the line and what used to be wildlife in the state of CO became a 600lb carcass belonging to yours truly. That animal had been kept in trust for me by my state.
A big hat tip to the folks over at Fair Chase a blog for people affiliated with Orion, an institute concerned with, "ethical and philosophical issues to promote fair chase and responsible hunting."
