Before Hunting Laws
During the 19th century, many game animals were hunted nearly into extinction. The thundering herds of buffalo that once roamed the plains were reduced to about 800 head. The beaver was almost wiped out. Once plentiful elk, deer, and pronghorn had been reduced to a fraction of their original number.
