Whether you're against hunting, for it, or indifferent, the short stories in this book provide some rare insight into why we hunt. Unlike author's who write with a like-minded audience in mind, those chosen for this collection seem to be trying to reach a broad audience of nature-lovers, anti-hunters, and hunters alike.
Remarkable collection of short stories and narratives from some of the best outdoor writers practicing the craft. It provides a lot of insights into why I, and others hunt. While I may not agree with every premise discussed, every author makes me think. And I become a more thoughtful hunter as a result.

Note: There are more than one David Petersen on GR's database.

This one (dissambiguated via 10 spaces) is a general catch-all because David^Petersen is taken by the author of the Mouse Guard series.
