Local Hunters Express Concern

A very preliminary meeting with several hunters from Abaco may pave the way for eventual formation of a concerned hunters group on Abaco. Many hunters of wild boar and wild pigeon have expresed concern over dwindling stocks of these animals. Irresponsible actions by a few hunters affect all the hunters when, for example, young boar that have been raised in captivity and released are killed before they even reach maturity or can reproduce.

A number of hunters have expressed support of the preserve the Abaco Wild Horse Fund is seeking to have established. They agree that it would make an excellent nursery area for replenishing wild stock. While the Abaco Wild Horse Fund itself does not endorse hunting, the Fund does feel that good dialogue with local hunters can lead to a strong coalition in support of the preserve and can lead to more responsible hunting activities.
