A few years ago, I was your typical office-worker: stressed out, uneven energy, overweight, and inconsistent complexion. Now I'm just your typical 28-year old urban hunter-gatherer on a quest to be healthy, and having a few adventures along the way. See my full bio.
Michael Pollan vs. Ted Nugent on Hunting
On the surface, you couldn't find two more different people than foodie journalist and author Michael Pollan and hard rocker, gun rights activist, and avid hunter Ted Nugent. They certainly don't vote the same way. Is it possible they have similar views on hunting?
I'm going to post a video of each of them. WATCH THEM BOTH. They each speak in a completely different manner. But if you can get past Nugent's brash and unmeasured language (particularly the first 30 seconds), you'll hear a message of wildlife conservation, reverence for nature, natural foods, and an anti-drug and healthy living philosophy. Pollan's video, on the other hand, fittingly takes place at the Yale Farm, and he speaks softly in measured fashion, acknowledging nuance and subtlety -- but at about second 54 he starts to criticize the environmental movement for excluding "the hook and bullet crowd".
NOTE: If you are squeamish about hunting or hold liberal political attitudes watch Pollan first. If you are a gung-ho hunter or hold more conservative political attitudes, watch Nugent first. Put your reactions in the comments.
