‘‘

As a pioneering wildlife biologist, eloquent spokesman for the ethic of land management, insightful ecologist, best-selling author—in various editions, A Sand County Almanac has sold more than two million copies—and practical lover of the land, Aldo Leopold (1887–1948) has had no peer in infl_uence on the development of modern conservation practice and philosophy. What is often overlooked, however, is that an important and integral reason for his love of the land involved hunting. He recognized and appreciated the primitive, atavistic impulses that are the beat of the hunter’s heart and reckoned that “the man who does not like to see, hunt, photograph, or otherwise outwit birds or animals is not normal.” Today, that keen interest in the quest of the hunt and in the occasional conquest—elements at the center of Leopold’s outlook—is too often overlooked.
