Hunting: The Necessary Ritual

Dominique Venner is now being translated into English.

A marvelous historian Venner [also] wrote handbooks about weapons, as well as a book on hunting called Dictionary for Those Who Love to Hunt. As he explains:

Venner's ColtTo my mind, hunting is not a sport. It is a necessary ritual in which every participant, predator and prey, plays the role imposed upon him by nature. Along with childbirth, death, and seed-sowing, I believe that hunting, if practiced according to the rules, is the last primordial rite to have partially escaped defacement and manipulation at the hands of rational, scientific modernity.
