Author and hunter David Petersen

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, Utah – In an age that is in natural historian David Petersen's words "increasingly urbanized, denatured, domesticated, and virtualized," why do so many people still engage in the ancient ritual of hunting? For Petersen, it is a love - a sacred game that places the human animal squarely at the heart of nature. As the West enters the Fall hunting season, Petersen talks to Doug Fabrizio about the ethics and responsibilities of the modern hunter. (Rebroadcast)

In addition to his writing, David Petersen is the Colorado field coordinator for Trout Unlimited's Public Lands Initiative, and is on the Advisory Board for Back Country Hunters and Anglers.
