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.

@valleyforge
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.
