Winner of 2015 "Best Book Award" from the Pennsylvania Outdoor Writers Association! The tone and tenor of this book is what the hunting community needs. Why? Because it tells the story most people don't know about hunting. This book explains why hunting is important to wildlife and will help hunters and others to think clearly about why hunting is important to them and how to share what hunting is all about. It speaks directly to many of the issues hunters face. Most people have no idea about the critical role hunters play to make sure wildlife thrives. This book changes all that. It tells why hunters are important to keeping North American wildlife (not just the hunted species) abundant and accessible. Growing Up With Guns is about America's hunting culture, about using guns responsibly, about hunting ethics and battling against hunter stereotypes. It's about how to think about hunting. The target audience is hunters, but non-hunters will see that hunters aren't the bloodthirsty exterminators some people think they are. Every reader will gain a better understanding of why hunters love hunting, and the role hunters must play if wildlife is to thrive in the future. Growing Up With Guns examines the hunter's unique, dual role as predator and conservationist, and presents thoughtful views about hunting in today's world. 50 easy-to-read chapters cover: >>the days when people didn't automatically assume guns were for killing people >>the predator who cares about his prey species and his impact on species that aren't his prey >>the hunter as a non-consumptive user of wildlife, and why hunting is life-giving >>tips and strategies that will make you a better hunter. If you want "Venison Stew for the Hunter's Soul," here it is. It's not thin, watered-down broth. It's deeply nourishing, and gives you plenty to chew on.
