Glamping and Glunting: What You Need to Know

In the world of hunting and wildlife conservation, we’re always looking for new people to join us in what we love. Recently, fellow blogger, Bob St. Pierre, wrote about Georgia Pellegrini and how women’s participation in hunting has increased 36.6 percent over the past decade. A pretty staggering number, isn’t it? I think this new trend is a great sign for the future of hunting and conservation.
I know I essentially said “the more the merrier” when it comes to people being interested in the outdoors, but… let me try to weigh the pros and cons of this latest fashion trend:
- More people viewing the outdoors as being “cool” or “hip” equals more voices willing to stand up to protect the wild places we love
- It’s now acceptable for me to wear my hunting boots to church
- I can finally wear that camo sport coat out to dinner
- It’s fair to say we all saw what happened to trout anglers when pheasant feathers became a hit with hair stylists
- Honestly, did you see that pair of high heeled upland boots?...
Now that I think about it, maybe it’s a good thing fashion tends to be like technology in the fact it’s obsolete before you even get it home.
