Will you do me a favor? Will you read my latest article for Wired to Hunt? Don’t just skim it, or glance at it. Read it and think about it.
I don’t care what you think of the writing, or what “gaps” you may find it my reasoning. I know that this post over-simplified the issues and painted with a broad brush. The article isn’t perfect, and neither is the author. Nevertheless, I think you should read it, think about it, and hopefully do something because of it.
I have been contributing to Wired to Hunt for several months now, and hopefully that means that I am a part of the family, because there are a few things that I want to talk about today that are controversial. Now, I say that I hope I am considered part of the “family” because context matters and because relationship matters. The concerns and critiques that I bring up today aren’t coming as an attack from an outsider. In fact this isn’t an attack at all, just some concerns that a member of the “whitetail hunting family” has about our future.
I am concerned about the future of hunting. I’m not trying to be apocalyptic; in fact, there are a lot of positive trends happening right now that are helping strengthen the future of hunting, at least temporarily. But, the fact of the matter is, there are some large issues that should be concerning.
