The shotgun conservationist, why environmentalists should love hunting, Brant MacDuff - hardcover

"The Shotgun Conservationist doesn't teach you how to hunt. It teaches you why to hunt. As public lands remain imperiled, factory farms pollute the earth and denigrate animals, and global uncertainty presses us all to be more self-sufficient, there has never been a better time for the conservation-minded, environmentally concerned citizen to take up hunting. Writer, natural historian, and public speaker Brant MacDuff has done just that. Two years ago, he turned his academic lens on the topic of hunting in America to either refute or support the claim that "hunting is conservation." He now holds a hunting license in four states and gives lectures on the positive impact it has on conservation efforts nationwide. Join MacDuff as he recounts his personal journey to becoming a hunter. As he takes on popular misconceptions surrounding hunting, we meet the colorful characters and firsthand research that changed his mind. All told in a narrative that is equal parts provocative, scientific, humorous, and insightful"--, Provided by publisher
