There are few things sadder than reading accounts of hunting expeditions in the area I live from the 1800's. Many of the species they talk about no longer exist here and none in the abundance they describe. All replaced with concrete and fast food.

They said David Crockett killed like 100 bears one year in Tennessee and I'm like.... are there even 100 bears in Tennessee? :angry_laugh:

@sapphire @Tepid_Tapir The thing is it wasn't individual hunters that did that. It was commercial hunting and mostly habitat loss.
