Hunting: where we’ve been and where we’re going.
For prehistoric humans, hunting was simply a necessity that helped keep them alive. As we evolved, it became just one tool for survival in a quickly expanding skill set. And now some people think of hunting largely as a sport or recreation. However, the ability to hunt is invaluable for linking our human heritage to our future as a species.
Beyond the practical applications of food acquisition and resource management, hunting teaches determination, ethics, responsibility, self-reliance, patience and respect. These higher-order benefits are important for developing healthy adults and children, giving us the skills we need to survive a modern world that can be overly reliant on battery-powered electronics and fragile software. So, learn to hunt and pay it forward — your grandkids will thank you.
