Now that’s a wildlife market…

This morning on NPR there was a report on today’s field bird (grouse, quail, partridge…) hunting day in England. Evidently a LOT of hunters go to these reserves on August 12th each year….the example being a group of 20 might well go out and kill 300 birds. The fee structure is around $200 each bird, so these twenty folks are spending $60k for the days hunt!
