    I always do my friend i fish and always tell everybody take only what you need.But when you do take thank the gods and make sure you use what you take.Nothing makes more mad than to see someone kill animals just for the thrill and leave it to rot!!!

    When you say native american your doing a horrible disservice to the children of all heritages that were born on this sacred land. Half the Americans we see everyday are of mixed heritage with American Indians. And a lot of the time, you cant tell by the persons features.
