Default Re: odd question

Until recent years, I never even thought about wildlife management. For instance, I released the little ones and took the keepers home. And when hunting, I would shoot the first legal deer I saw. Same thing with turkeys. But I have noticed a trend in recent years. People let the little fish and the ones of "prime breeding size" go, keeping only the really big ones. They pass on a 3 year old deer and wait for one larger, maybe 5 years old. We even pass on the turkeys with short beards, waiting for that monster to come strutting along. Yes, people are acting responsibly toward nature. I know there are fanatics out there, and honestly, I think they may be going overboard. But they have a point. If we don't act responsibly, our children may not be able to enjoy the things we take for granted.
