Reading Heartsblood: Hunting, Spirituality and Wildness in America.

Many thoughts.  I will share in forthcoming posts.


Huge distinction here on the type of people that hunt. Petersen breaks it down into the three types of hunters.

Utilitarian Hunters – Hunt for food. prevalent in rural areas.

Sport Hunters – Hunt for sport. Disconnected from nature,, separate. Trophy hunters. Hunting media and the common conception of hunters by the mainstream.

Nature(natural) Hunters – Spiritual connection to nature, animals and the hunt. Deep appreciation of the primal nature of hunting and the natural world.
