In South Louisiana it’s almost as common as breathing, the desire to hunt. Fathers pass the tradition to sons and daughters who in turn pass the tradition down the line. However, disappearing land for leases and perhaps the advent of computer games and a more sedentary lifestyle are cutting into the time honored tradition of the hunt.

Fewer hunters mean less revenue for state conservation agencies. Now officials nationwide are scrambling to preserve hunting traditions — and the billions of dollars they generate — before they fade away for good.

Is hunting soon to fade from the landscape of the Sportsmans Paradise or is that something that other parts of the country will have to deal with? Read futher and share your hunting memories and thoughts in a comment below.
