EP:231 | A Journey Towards Understanding Hunting

By: Mossy Oak GameKeeper


This week we have a very interesting discussion with author Erika Howsare, whose recent book, The Age of Deer, The Trouble and Kinship with Our Wild Neighbors recently caught our attention. It’s a fascinating look at the white-tailed deer and its relationship with man over time. She explains, “deer have been an essential part of human life for millennia and today our relationship is still intimate, yet full of contradictions:  we hunt and protect them, we cull them in suburbs while mythologizing them as icons of the wilderness.”  Erika didn’t grow up hunting and readily admits she was ambivalent about the whole process. However, through her research on deer and an open mind, she develops a very deep introspective into hunting, hunters, and our view of the world.  If you’re a hunter, especially a deer hunter, you need to listen to what she has to say. Listen, Learn and Enjoy.
