Dusty what is your basis for saying the take in blonde subocs is unsustainable? The range of the blondes is vast compared to the tiny narrow 100 foot wide by 3 or 4 miles long strip of road they are taken off of. Very few people even hunt that stretch of road, the vast majority of blone subocs have been found by people merely passing though the area while going to or from from Study Butte and the main hunting area which is a good 20 miles away from the area where the blondes are found. Since few, if any, hunters stay for more than one or two passes at a time in the area where the blondes are found, I would bet that well over 90% of the blondes crossing that road are never even seen.

On top of all that the road is not even where they live, it is a kill zone. Most blondes in the immeadiate area adjacent to the road probably never even come out onto the road. Additionally there are likey thousands more blondes that are nowhere near "adjacent" to the road, living so far out in the desert that they will never even see a set of headlights go by in the distance, let alone venture onto the road themselves. I am just very surpised at what you have said because you have been to the trans-pecos have you not? You should now that the roads that snakes like subocs and alterna get collected from comprise less than 1/10th of a percent of their range. What's sad is that some wildlife agents seem to share your unfounded beliefs. Laws are being based on such hogwash and there is no data whatsoever to back them up.
