Hunting Or Not
Hunting? Non-hunting? Anti-hunting?
My family and I have always enjoyed a variety of Wild Foods, including venison. And it was actually the love of Wild Foods that led me to found WeatherWool.
Among the companies that provide products to outdoors-oriented people, there is a real divide ... do their customers hunt, or not. Very few companies (LL Bean is an exception) seem to be in the good graces of hunters and non-hunters, let alone anti-hunters. We hope our orientation toward Weather can help us to also be an exception, and appeal to outdoors-oriented people of all persuasions. If there is one thing that all of our customers seem to agree on, it is a love of Nature. And all of us who love Nature are natural (sorry) allies in the most important effort ... protection of habitat. (We've been members of The Nature Conservancy for over 30 years.)
Until my family goes vegetarian (Debby and Denali have been vegetarian for years, but not currently) I plan to continue to hunt wild meat.
We have gotten a lot of our Wild Foods at The Swamp, our little place in the North Jersey Swamps near New York City.
The variety and wonder of Wild Foods used by humans is almost infinite ... worldwide, every day, vital, since the beginning. For a bit, we were getting active on the Wild Food scene but we can't even give WeatherWool all the attention it deserves, so our Wild Foods efforts will have to wait. But someday, we hope to bring Wild Foods into the WeatherWool circle ... there are a lot of possibilities!
