In THE SHOTGUN CONSERVATIONIST: Why Environmentalists Should Love Hunting (Timber Press: April 25, 2023), conservation historian and author MacDuff shares his personal journey from hating hunting as a child (with the journals to prove it) to learning whole-animal butchering at one of New York’s most prestigious butchers to working as a taxidermist and holding hunting licenses in four states. MacDuff tells Radio Free Galisteo's John Shannon his provocative, humorous, and insightful story of how he became a hunter and his firsthand research that helped change his mind about this timeless human activity.
