Livin' off the land
About a month ago I posted this article hailing hunters as the original locavores and in the following weeks the topic has came up in a few dinner conversations (mainly those that took place among taxidermy ducks). Just recently, I've come across this article in Slate discussing Sarah Palin's hunting habits not as Cheney's "canned hunts on private game reserves," but as a nod to self-reliant, traditional, living-off-the-land locavorism and what that may mean to folks against animal cruelty (think feed lots and CNN videos), voters, and sustainability.
It's an interesting read - especially if you don't know a whole lot about hunting - so definitely check it out.
