You dweeb. I know there's ONE rifle NOONE has.
If you need verification, you can read a book or ask the nice cat-loving puff in Key West who oversees his home for tourists.

Like the quote from Robert Service on Alaska, one day Im going to go there and have those pussies eating from the very palm of my hand . They will recognize me as a friend of the pen...and then ahhhhh the breeze the breeze the breeze what to make of the breeze while on the Keys...she comes she goes, she botches plans of loftily drawn sails and flutters flags with whimsical notice..and holds a lack of prejudice towards either with equal fervor...but I shall salute none and nobody, call the world my kingdom and let the hammock swing like a pendulum to the rhythmic sleep inducing matching tides of shore..and I wont even need a broken heart.....ahh come with me come with to Florida we shall go...I cant wait I cant wait I cant wait...do you think you could introduce us? And yes how far is Cuba anyway? Sighs. And when is hurricane season..would want to avoid travel during that time and do I honestly need a gun? Who or what animal could venture into the cross hairs with my eyes and vision distracted with so much beauty unbounded...all free for the taking without aid of scope or even casual aim? A moment alone if you will , between my trusted friend and I, -,.......

OOOOPPPPS! Robert Service was writing about the YUKON, damn me bad, but I was close as can be

There are hardships that nobody reckons;
There are valleys unpeopled and still;
There's a land -- oh, it beckons and beckons,
And I want to go back -- and I will. - Robert Service, Spell of the Yukon

In a poem called 'Spell of the Yukon', Robert Service once wrote: I wanted the gold, and I sought it,
I scrabbled and mucked like a slave.
Was it famine or scurvy -- I fought it;
I hurled my youth into a grave.

Service aside, you DO know how Hemingway passed away?
And do come up to alaska-as observed by a recent guest: there are so many different ways to die up here.
No Apologies.

"Every game hunter is at some point in his life a conservationist.

kill them all....for a price of course

Well . I didnt mean bumbling government bureaucracy. Or poachers or illegal wildlife traders.

Animal decimation is a pretty fascinating topic. Since it predates film and documentation, we are left to our imaginations to conjure of pictures of the 'fish in a barrel' type mentality that surely ran rife at that time.

With the prospect of natures bounty prey to mans fancy with his newly invented hunting instrument, and a much less people populated planet, we can just imagine the sense of jaw dropping wonder at continents literally teeming with wildlife.

What a freekin world that must have been, forgetting about how harsh it was without so-called modern convenience for a second, there must have at least been a sense, the same sense we have today: that things were getting better and improving, with each new small advance and modernity which we would otherwise no doubt smirk at today for its quaintness, doubtlessly at the time its no different from similarly held reactions today...no difference in way of response from each small improvement we see in this century and new millennium in the news all the time...a sense of wonder and pleasingness, but for them back then each new small thing introduced was the wonder of its day, and same as today anything beyond that , merely fanciful.

The first Wildlife Sanctuary in human history still exists in Srilanka

I mean have not hunters been the caretakers of our wild all the time? Heres a great link I found that supports this thesis:

And some dude who shot a bunch of tigers and then changed his mind about his hobby. These are the trailblazers, gentlemen. We often see them with crusty snow white hairgrowth but surprisingly enough it appears that trailblazers did at one point experience that thing we commonly refer to as youth. We can guess it went by very quickly for at a time when time seemed to have gone by slowly, fascinating to me anyway...
