A Definitive Study of the Mind, Body, and Ecology of the Hunter in the Modern World
Hunting is our heritage, our heart, and our future.
Where does hunting fit in the modern world? To many, it can seem outdated or even cruel, but as On Hunting affirms, hunting is holistic, honest, and continually relevant. Dive deep into the ancient past of hunting and examine its position today, demonstrating that we cannot understand humanity without first understanding hunting.
Drawing from ecology, philosophy, and anthropology and sprinkled with campfire stories, this wide-ranging examination has rich depths for both nonhunters and hunters alike. On Hunting shows that we need hunting still—and so does the wild earth we inhabit.
"On Hunting provides the foundation for an honest conversation about hunting in the modern world. I hope that you will enjoy On Hunting as much as I did and apply its principles to your own life and worldview.”

What People Are Saying About On Hunting
"Without knowing where we came from, it’s impossible to understand how we got here. On Hunting not only offers a comprehensive look at the evolution of hunting but also reaffirms the modern hunter’s connection to his primordial roots. A great read."
"I loved this book! A very intellectual and historical study of why we hunt. Understanding the why naturally results in improving skills for tactical situations and survival, not to mention making us better hunters!"
"In the end, a man’s worth is not judged by what he knows but by what he has done. Lt. Col. Dave Grossman has done way more for the good of others than he will ever know. His books, all of them, are required reading in my family. His latest book, On Hunting, has now joined that required reading list."
"I very much enjoyed this book. It will have a great reception, as it is about all of us (humans), not just hunters."
"All true hunters “feel” the truth, but few are able to “articulate” that truth. Now, thankfully, we have On Hunting to be our champion of the wild!"
"I believe this is the most important study of hunting since the Meditations on Hunting writings by José Ortega y Gasset."
