Modern Hunting, Ancient Philosophy

Hunting is an instinct, one that has fueled our species’ inventiveness and that affirms our natural-born love of nature. When done right, hunting means hard work, respect and no guarantees.

Man Made Of Elk
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. And just as we need them, the animals we hunt need to be hunted in order to stay wild, healthy and free. In “A Man Made of Elk,” accomplished nature writer and avid hunter David Petersen looks at 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. Petersen also shares insightful anecdotes and sage advice gleaned from his decades of traditional bowhunting.
Modern Hunting
Without the precise sort of physical and intellectual exercise provided by predation and evasion, spectacular prey species such as elk, deer and antelope — so beautifully sculpted by the artful knife of natural selection — would devolve into mere meager shadows of themselves, as pampered park and suburban deer are even now becoming in many parts of North America.
