This is a well sourced an detailed view of hunting. It promotes the concept of not only hunting ethically but also of the spiritual characteristics of the hunt.

This book expands on idea an concepts expressed in his other book "The Sacred Art of Hunting". Ending with a well thought out practical section about how to keep hunting alive and well for generations to come.

Takes a look at hunting as a more of a spiritual activity than sport. Which is the way it should be. And I won't even hold the fact that he's a bowhunter against him. Awesome book for non-hunters and hunters alike.

A very long winded way of basically saying. If you abolish hunting and trapping the harm is far greater to the Eco system and to man, that can be imagined.
