Aside from the rattlesnake roundup, I believe that wild snake populations are better sustained now that captive breeding has taken off. I think that wild populations are hurt more by corporate America building more housing and shopping malls that by the once existent professional collector. Those of us that go fishing and catch a few tuna aren't responsible for the decline in the tuna populations, large drift net fishing and climate changes are. I'm not a member of the cool guy field herpers fraternity that gets any attention in this forum so my views could be way off.
