Human’s are at the top of the food chain, and in fact, most of us are completely removed from the food chain all together. We understand that our fruits and vegetables grown on farms, but we go to supermarkets to get them. We try to suppress the idea of where our meat comes from, or spend copious amounts of money to get it from a relatively humane source, but no matter what we do we just get it from somebody else that does any of the heavy lifting for us. Today’s guest, Stephen, likes to hunt and eats the animals that he himself kills. Some might consider hunting cruel, but Stephen explains why getting back into the food chain changes your perspective and appreciation for your food.
