photo stories: the vanishing hunter
While hunting has been a part of the American tradition back to the country's founding, over time it's popularity has fallen dramatically. Much of it has to do with the disconnect people have with the 'harvesting' of their meat. Many now look unfavorably on hunting, even those who eat meat, and for a variety of other reasons, including a diminishing of available land, hunting is on the decline in America. But for those who still hunt, the reasons for hunting remain numerous, including: a greater sense of appreciation for nature, a shared comradery with fellow hunters and wildlife conservation.
