JR's Random Outdoor Quote

“In a civilized and cultivated country, wild animals only continue to exist at all when preserved by sportsmen. The excellent people who protect against all hunting, and consider sportsmen as enemies of wildlife, are wholly ignorant of the fact that in reality the genuine sportsman is by all odds the most important factor in keeping wild creatures from total extermination.”

-Theodore Roosevelt
