Honoring The Hunted

Why doesn't society recognize the good we do?

Non-hunters find it difficult to believe that we care about wildlife in any emotional sense.

If we wish to convince the general public that we care for something more and pursue something greater than the animals death, we must emphasize the experience and the living animal most.

We care for animals in a fundamental way.

Yes we may take the life. And thereby take possession of one wild creature during our hunt. But that does not mean that we do not admire them in life, and wish to see their future secured. Even if that future does not include hunting. Let's diminish the focus on our achievements and on us. Let's start honoring what truly matters.
