Deer Hunters Wanted.  

Jun 3, 2017

Can hunting survive without conservation?  Can conservation survive without hunting?  History tells us that they need each other to survive.  Hunting without rules will surely devastate a species.  Conservation regulation without hunting has shown that hunting dollars matter greatly, and without the economic backing, poachers have a field day.   This is perhaps no better represented as in the case of the white rhino where the horn of the rhino brings big bucks in the far east to supply a culture's demand based on ancient medicinal beliefs.  Cole Reid, from the Stewards of Wildlife,  is all to familiar with these concepts as he is attempting to herd 2500 rhinos on his ranch in Texas. This herd will perhaps one day supply the world with what could be the only white rhino started-culture on earth. Cole is a long time deer hunter and now world conservationist. Stay tuned as we explore a global view of conservation and hunting in this episode. Oh, and we talk a lot about deer hunting too.
