Served in Alaska in a remote radar site before it acquired statehood (1958) when hunting laws were not very restricted. Our commanding officer allowed us to hunt moose and bear as long as we did not waste the meat.

Needless to say that we did not shoot many because of the huge amount of available meat. We got pretty tired of eating moose day in and day out, breakfast, lunch, dinner and midnight chow.

Just imagine how it is for those tribes that live in Siberia who eat nothing but reindeer for their entire lives.

I was reading a historical book on the US in the 1700’s and 1800’s.
There were large herds not only of Buffalo but almost as many Elk.
They were hunted to extinction in the Prairie States and people growing up in the last century haven’t seen a single Buffalo or Elk except in Zoos.
Even Zane Grey wrote in his books that most of the early westerners would much rather have an Elk steak than beef.
