McGuane And His Bird Dogs In The Wall Street Journal

March 29, 2009 By: Marshall Cutchin

Thomas McGuane celebrates hunting dogs and their enthusiams in The Wall Street Journal. “There is so much in the air suggesting that hunting is an anachronism that it’s easy for a hunter to feel he is an anachronism too. An old fishing friend of mine said, as we headed home from an agreeable outing, ‘I thank God I’m not a day under 80.’ I’m a meat eater and have the teeth to prove it, but greatly pity the creatures in the domestic meat businesses.” (Thanks to reader John DeVault for this link.)
