If eating meat is a part of your diet this organization provides great support for this wonderful animal. Hunting is a great way to harvest true free range meat from an animal that has enjoyed a truly free life with no interference from corporate America, meaning no hormones and no additives. The only true and natural meat is one that we harvest ourselves and through this process we learn a respect and a reverence for the animal and its natural world that has given their energy and life to sustain ours.
