  • Read a poem or short story, don't remember which, about 10 years ago, and am trying to find it. It compared hunting\conservatio

    Read a poem or short story, don't remember which, about 10 years ago, and am trying to find it. It compared hunting\conservation with the "humanity" of letting nature deal with deer over population. The story was aimed at those who felt hunting was bad and that it is best to let nature take it's course. The author vividly describes the brutality of nature - winter, starvation, predation, etc., as compared to legally harvesting deer with a single, comparatively, painless bullet. An absolutely amazing story. i would really like to find this again. Any help?

        I tried for about an hour yesterday to find the writer's name but didn't have any luck. He was a young guy from Wyoming but I can't find it. Sorry.

            Hi all,
            Thanks for trying to help. I still can't find the article and Sports Afield charges $100 an hour to research old issues. I think DSM is on the right track with Kerasote, but couldn't find an essay that matched what i remember. I was thinking maybe Cerulli? Any ideas?
