Hunting: The encyclopedia entry

by Tovar on March 17, 2013 · 15 comments

Suppose you knew someone who was asked to write an encyclopedia entry.

The topic: hunting in the United States today.

The encyclopedia: a new three-volume, million-word tome on Food Issues.

The goal: to give readers—mainly high school and college students—an overview of

  • issues, controversies, and fascinating things about hunting
  • the range of perspectives on hunting
  • who hunts and who doesn’t
  • related laws and regulations
  • the current resurgence of interest
  • and so on.

All in 3,000 words or less.

A foolhardy mission, perhaps. But I accepted.

So here’s the question: If you pulled this encyclopedia off the shelf, what would you hope to see mentioned there?
