Figure how it would be without Ducks Unlimited, the grand-daddy of restoration/preservation. Now we have the same sort of organizations for quail and elk. The desert bighorn sheep is also benefitting.

Were it not for the hunter's view of the monetary value of elephants, they'd be in short supply in many countries, as well.

No game animal is threatened or is in danger of extinction, just because of the efforts of hunters. A side benefit is the incidental protection of habitat for non-game species.

Anti-hunters worry about the fate of an individual animal. The hunter cares about the health of the entire species.
