Sharing the bounties of nature.
Most hunters consume the game they harvest, which gives hunting more appeal to people on the fence about trying it. And people don’t have to be experts in wild game cooking. For example, the healthy meat of deer can be prepared with traditional cooking methods. Also consider that many hunters donate wild game meat to food pantries and food banks. Such donations build and strengthen bonds with and within these communities.
For both hunter and recipient, the gift reinforces the importance of local sourcing and the wilderness the animal was taken from, making it more likely these places will remain protected for everyone’s benefit. As long as there are animal populations sizable enough to be harvested, hunters will be able to manage them and feed their own families while at the same time taking food insecurity off the tables of their fellow citizens.
