I think the answer to this question may trace all the way back to the post which asked ‘why do you hunt’? I hunt because I am a hunter. I am descended from a family of pioneers who gave up their lives in England to build something better for themselves, and ultimately me, in the New World. Hunting takes me back to that time and reminds me of who I am. When I walk out after a tracker in the bush of Africa, I carry wood and steel.
