Can hunting endangered animals save the species?

The scimitar horned oryx . . . the addax . . . the dama gazelle three elegant desert antelope that you'd hope to see on a journey through Africa, except that their numbers are dwindling there. Which is why Lara Logan went to Texas yes, Texas. There, on large grassland ranches, some exotic species that are endangered in the wild have been brought back in large numbers. But there's a catch: a percentage of the herd is hunted every year by hunters who pay big money for a big catch. The ranchers say this limited "culling" gives them the money they need to care for the animals and conserve the species.

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

The Audad and the Blackbuck were pretty much gone from the areas they used to inhabit. Because of them being raised in areas like Texas they not only protect the species, but Audad have been taken from those ranches to Africa and returned to the wild and Blackbuck have been returned to India. Win-win situation.

You want to save something? Make it valuable and put a price tag on it.

You think the petafags would do that?
To you gutless cowards and scumbags, who are trying to lie and rewrite history. To those out to commit genocide on the Southern people with your destruction of Confederate monuments and your attacks on Southern heritage and pride. Be happy for now. Because someday when that civil war you wanted starts. I will find you. And I will kill you.
