Know Hunting: Truths, Lies & Myths by David E. Dr. Samuel

Many West Virginians know David Samuel as a longtime professor of wildlife management at WVU. Others know him as a nationally known advocate for hunting, especially bowhunting.

Samuel effectively combines both facets of his life in this informative, thought-provoking volume. In clear, simple prose, he examines who today's hunters are; why they hunt, what their values are, what their impact on the environment is, and the ethics of their sport.

At the same time Samuel takes an incisive look at the anti-hunting movement: its motives and its strategies.

Know Hunting is the best treatise I've read on hunting since Allen Jones "A Quiet Place of Violence." Both belong on the bookshelves of anyone who has ever had to answer a nonhunter or antihunter's questions about hunting.
