Without any doubt four of Arizona's most valuable speciesthe mountain sheep, the antelope, the javelina or peccary, and the Sonora deer are hovering on the verge of extermination. Moreover the blacktail deer and the turkey are about to become extinct in the southern parts of the state. Turkey may indeed be said to be totally cleaned out south of the Mogollon Rim. White-tailed deer are holding out better. Like the rabbit, they live in the dense brush and survive by hiding out. Quail are doing well except near the larger towns, where they are getting thinned out.
The value of this editorial, besides whatever effect it had to rally sportsmen to the cause of game restoration, lies in the insight it provides into Leopold's thinking at the time. Also instructive is his debunking the regional belief (still prevalent, and still groundless) that the Southwest's public lands were threatened by hordes of eastern big-game hunters. The federal game-refuge bill that Leopold was urging his readers to support (the so-called Hornaday Plan) failed in Congress. But this was only the beginning.
