I’ve long tried to explain to non-hunters that providing my own healthy meals is one of the greatest satisfactions I find in hunting. I often compare it to the process to gardening
“There is no honor or true appreciation in any meal that’s killed or grown by others,” is one of my favorite lines.
Now, it appears that a growing number of young, previously non-hunters are giving it a whirl, too, and some are writing books about it.
The linked-to review by the New York Times takes a look at several such books, some of which are written by men and women who were previously vegans. I’ve yet to read any of the books because I have a pretty good idea what they’re going to say, but I might load one or two on my Kindle for down the road.
I did learn, though, that famed Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg pledged for a year to only eat meat from animals he’d killed to achieve a greater appreciation for life and his meals…at least I assume he’s still able to afford to buy his own food.
