Death and the Spirituality of Hunting

The Modern Carnivore Podcast

A successful hunt can bring many mixed emotions. It is exciting to succeed in your goal but can be equally as troubling because you have taken the life of a living being. To help sort through these emotions, Mark has a talk with Tony Jones, the Reverend Hunter.  Tony has a Ph.D. in theology from Princeton Theology Seminary and is an accomplished author. He has many books and is frequently found in the “Outdoors” section of the Minneapolis Star Tribune.  You can also listen to Tony on his own podcast titled, The Reverend Hunter.  Mark and Tony discuss hunting ethics and the spirituality of hunting.  Join us for this in-depth discussion.
