City Deer Make me Wish I had a Freezer Full of Venison

Seen through one lens, sure, I can understand how, to many urban dwellers, hunting and eating game sounds downright redneckey.

Seen through another lens, I could also make a case that my siblings and I were raised on protein that was all-natural; local; organic, sustainable; free-range; vegetarian-diet; low-input; biodynamic; soy-, hormone-, cage-, and antibiotic-free—not to mention compatible with the Paleo Diet—long before any of those qualifiers were righteous among savvy urbanites.

That’s an excerpt from “On Wanting to Eat the City Deer,” a guest post I wrote for the City Creatures blog (a project for the Center for Humans and Nature in Chicago). I hope you’ll check out my whole post here:  http://www.humansandnature.org/blog/wanting-eat-city-deer

  1. You write well about city Whitetail Deer.
    Interested in writing about free-roaming horses in a suburban community close to Albuquerque, New Mexico?
