Hunting as Rite of Passage

Dominique Haller

On today's show, we'll be talking to Randall Eaton, an expert on the ethics of hunting. In his latest book From Boys to Men of Heart: Hunting as Rite of Passage, he describes hunting as a transformative experience for young people. According to him, it helps to instill good character, values and virtues. While hunting, young people can learn life skills they will need in marriage, parenting and providing.

What do you think about hunting as a transformative experience? Do you agree that hunting can offer important life lessons? Or do you have qualms about hunting in general? Is there a gender difference in the experience of hunting? Are you a woman who hunts? And how is your experience different from that of a man who hunts?
