    Default Fishing and hunting

    I have been hunting with friends, and I used to like fishing quite a lot in an earlier life.

    I now think they have no future - not in wild areas. Too many people, too few wild areas.

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    Yes. The ones coming up see what is left and consider it paradise. We who have memories stretching back to our childhoods 70 years ago can see the change, and to us, paradise is long gone. The lone and level sands do not yet stretch far away, but that scenario is within sight.

    Here, at least, the future is not so much too many hunting/fishing in too few wild areas as very few youth hunting/fishing in vast areas.

    We are consuming the environment that nourishes us at an unsustainable rate, sea, land, air and the fossil bank. There are far too many of us.
    We will pay in the end

    Yes. Shifting baselines. The slowly boiling frog.

    But at some point you actually run out of fish/game. Then either it stops or becomes something exclusive for the elite, like caviar or bluefin tuna or shooting elephants for sport. I think it's best to stop before that, and find non-consumptive ways to enjoy the little that is left.
