They won't introduce bison because there's too many tuberculosis issues to deal with. But they sure do eat good!I'm 50 years old, saw my first deer at age 16, it was rabbits,squirrels,groundhogs,quail, and dove untill then. Deer hunting was a dream, you had to go to eastern ky,ft knox, or LBL, which may as well been Africa for a poor country boy with no father. Was squirrel hunting with a buddy on his uncles , farm near salvisa (ky River) he kept telling me there were deer there, and not being the most honest fellow I knew, I didn't believe him untill I jumped two bedded in a brushy field. It would not have shocked me more if they were Elephants!
Today in Ky we have gobs of deer,elk,coyote,turkey,otters,beavers,and eagle sightings are more common all the time.Sadly the quail are pretty scarce these days, at least in my country. I credit the experienced ,educated KDFW, and the monies sportsman have raised, for all this reintroduction of native species. Whats next Bison?
