Modern Hunting, Ancient Philosophy

Why do we hunt? For meat, trophies, challenge, companionship, the simple pleasure of being outdoors? In part, we hunt because we are biologically and psychologically predisposed to do so. In this excerpt from his book “A Man Made of Elk,” accomplished nature writer and avid hunter David Petersen explores our human hunting history, the role of predation in a thriving ecosystem, and what it means to be an ethical hunter in today’s culture of “techno-hunting,” convenience and ego. When done right, hunting means hard work, respect and no guarantees, and Petersen offers ways we can shape stronger and more meaningful hunting ethics, both personally and for the next generation of hunters.
