It is often said of true hunters that they are some of the best conservationists, as they understand that when a species is obliterated it is no longer available for the hunt. Many hunters will fight tooth and nail to save valuable habitat and wildlife in order to maintain the delicate balance which provides them with their bounty. If only this practice was as well understood in the days in which these photos were taken; imagine the harvest of American lumber we would have at our disposal today. If reforestation was a commonly practiced concept a hundred or more years ago we could have our cake and eat it too, with some to spare. I see much of this practice being taught today, and while there is a lot of hippie-dippie talk associated with ideas like reforestation and conservation I think having these natural assets available for future generations of woodworkers is well worth the fight.
