"In a civilized and cultivated country, wild animals only continue to exist at all when preserved by sportsman. The excellent people who protest against all hunting and consider sportsman as enemies of wildlife are ignorant of the fact that in reality the genuine sportsman is, by all odds, the most important factor in keeping the larger and more valuable wild creatures from total extermination."
-President Theodore Roosevelt
Although he was refering to hunters I think it pretty well sums it up! Something else that might be noted that Fish and game gets 100% of their monies from the sale of hunting and fishing licenses. Why don't the non consumptive users have to pay to see the wildlife?
