Field Notes — 12/6/2013

Hunting is an activity that I have no real prior experience with. About seven years ago I started to think more and more about my food, where it comes from and was interested in the locavore concept. While I was not necessarily militant about my need for hyperlocal eating, I had fun exploring options and experiments to supplement my diet with a more local and sustainable way of eating. As I delved into this topic with interest I read: Steven Rinella, Tovar Cerulli, Langdon Cook, Hank Shaw, Michael Pollen, Eric Schlosser, Novella Carpenter, Jim Harrison, Bill Heavey, Alisa Smith and J.B MacKinnon, the list goes on and on. I wanted to read a wide berth of books on the subject of food and the more that I read the more I was led to learn to hunt. Now that I have hunted, I thought it would be a good time to revisit some of the articles and share them.

This edition of Field Notes it about other news articles that I read in those early days, that have been bookmarked and reread as I proceeded down this path. As I’ve openly admitted in previous posts. As Tovar Cerulli has defined — I am in the category of Adult On-Set hunter. There is no rich family history, or woodland lessons from my grandfather or my father. Hunting and bow hunting specifically is a consciouses decision that I have come to. Here are a few influential stories that helped to shape my desire to hunt for my own food.
