The traditions of hunting dictate that animals be taken in the spirit of fair play. Some call hunting a sacred act, one of the few activities that allows humans to participate in the life and death cycles of the natural world.

Is hunting worth preserving... and is there a hunting ethic that works as we head into the 21st century? OUTDOOR IDAHO explores the issues surrounding "The Hunt."
