WILDLIFE IN THE NEWS

EVER ONWARD — TOWARD THE DUSTBIN OF HISTORY AS LUKE DOMMER, C.A.S.H. FOUNDER, USED TO SAY::

· According to The Shreveport Times of March 13, 2005 Louisiana’s hunting population is dying out. In an article By Mike Hasten based on reports from Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Department: “From 2001 to 2005, the number of licensed hunters has dropped from 241,622 to 224,224. Louisiana is concerned about hunting literally dying out. Its hunting population is getting older, and fewer licenses are being sold to younger hunters.”

· According to an article by Frank Sargeant, posted on Tampa Bay OnLine, hunting license sales keep falling in Florida: Florida had 175,894 resident hunters in 1994-95…By 2000-2001 that had declined to 161,882. In 2003-04, the most recent statistics, sales dropped to 156,036. In a state where the human population is spiraling upward, declining hunting license sales indicate that the new Floridians are not hunters, and young people are not growing up in the rural tradition
