The Future of Hunting Depends on This!!

Beyond Fair Chase by Jim Posewitz is one of the best books dedicated solely to the subject of hunter ethics that I have ever come across in six decades of reading. It's easy reading - doesn't get into the heavy philosophy stuff - only 112 short pages and can be read in one evening by anyone. Also, it's very interesting with several examples of what hunter ethics is all about. I can't say enough good things about this book. As ethical behavior is something that most of us are trying to define and redefine as we evolves as hunters, this would be landmark reading for everyone. PLEASE, if you love hunting and wildlife, AND you would like to see our hunting tradition SURVIVE for future generations, READ THIS BOOK! PLEASE! You can get it from Amazon.com for about seven bucks - but, like they say in the TV credit card ad - it's priceless. Heck, if you can't afford it or can't find it, you can borrow mine.

might have to check it out .Never hurts to read a book once and awhile

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
