    ^ Thanks, I'll do the same. Seems something that long and detailed should have been printed, if only in paperback.

    Is there anywhere in NC where the forest is original? I don't think so except possibly part of dismal swamp? I think everything had been cut at one point by the early settlers.

    I cannot fathom a lack of habitat in the early 1900s? In NC.

    what am i missing?

    but you got it,,,,,,thanks
    i wasnt even talkking directly to you or your infpormation merely stating a possible misconception on my part.

    with only two millon people in the state in 1900 and almost 11 million today it is hard to conceive more trees here today.

    in my half century i have only seen woods destroyed for big ag and urban sprawl.

    a quick google search yield conflicting "facts" on teh amount of trees now versus "then"

    and there is a another school of thought on how the lack of forest was or was not a factor.

    but at some point the effort isnt worth it. the level reached here talking about turkey populations is absurd.

    beneath us all.

    Photographic evidence exists. I've told you what to look for to see it. You seem to think it's a personal attack on you, when it's just fact pointing. I can't tell you anything about the turkey populations then vs now. I won't comment on what I don't know about, so trees and forestation will be the extent. Carry on.
