I don't doubt that there is a black market for game meats, and fish as well, especially with the way prices have risen in stores over the years. But let's not lose sight of the fact that it is a black market and that those involved, both selling and buying, are breaking the law.

A politically correct observation. The corollary to that is there would be no black market for game meat if there were no illegal harvest for a black market supply. The problem is we have an unregulated segment of the population that can hunt whenever they want, wherever they want, based on sustenance. Sustenance purposes being key here in definition.
Let's not pretend we don't know where the illegal supply of game meat and fish come from. So ya, we could say the hundreds buyers of product are as equally culpable in the crime as the few dozen suppliers, but if we want to target an end to the industry, should the light be on the dealers or the consumer?
Good luck with that cuz if ya try to, you are a racist or at the very least not understanding of traditional trade practices. Somehow, meeting someone in the Safeway parking lot to buy game meat or fish for cash only has become a traditional trade practice.
Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard.

The same principles could be applied to the drug trade.
