Hello everyone and a Happy New Year!
I've just listened to this programme "The Why Factor - Hunting" on the iPlayer which should be of interest. It touches on many of the topics we discussed late last year in this thread.
BBC World Service - The Why Factor, Hunting
Interestingly, in that thread I'd mentioned that apparently there was very little good scientific literature on this, and this is confirmed here where all they can come up with is that a very small number of hunters may hunt because they're psychopaths, but the lady interviewed does make it clear that this is a marginal finding. There's a South African hunter who quite eloquently tries to explain how it feels, and an interesting piece about "a new breed of hipster hunters". I don't think that's a very good way of putting it but I do understand what they mean. There is no firm conclusion at the end, and I don't think there can be a single one, but this is a good attempt at a balanced view by and for non-hunters. Well worth 18 minutes of your time.
