Public hunting, as we know it in America, does not exist in Europe. There the hunter may not keep all the game he shoots. Hunting and game management are controlled by the foresters who have learned that silviculture and game production must be co[odiaeresis]rdinated and that neither can be intensive without injury to the other. In asserting that there must be working agreements between timber and game interests and correlation between timber and game as land resources, such as he learned of in Europe, the author has sounded a timely warning. American game is owned and administered by the states and forest considerations and conflicts have not yet been given sufficient thought except where damage has resulted from overpopulation by game.
