Item Description...
A hunter defends the ethical aspects of hunting, discussing why hunting is necessary, how it works to conserve certain groups of animals, why environmentalists support hunting, and how hunting is statistically less dangerous than sports.

Publishers Description
Why the Left's anti-hunting propaganda is dead wrong
Nothing is more hated--and more misunderstood--by the trendy Left than hunting. But now intrepid hunter and pro-hunting activist Frank Miniter sets the record straight. In The Politically Incorrect Guide(tm) to Hunting, he details the concrete benefits that hunting provides to all of us--even how it helps the environment. Speaking with wildlife biologists, hunters, farmers, anti-hunters, and victims of animal attacks, Miniter explains how banning hunting negatively affects wildlife populations and conservation. Miniter's fearless, politically incorrect take on hunting lays out the facts that liberal enviro-nuts don't want you to know, including:
*How a well-intentioned policy of "live and let live" with Florida alligators resulted in human deaths
*Why you're more likely to be attacked by a bear in an area where hunting is forbidden, such as a national park
*Why non-lethal alternatives to hunting don't work to control animal populations
*Why even vegetarians depend on hunting for their dinner (especially those who demand organic or locally grown food)
*How hunters are wildlife's best defenders--far more effective than big-budget "green" groups
*How deer cause more human deaths each year than sharks, cougars, bears, and alligators combined
*Why hunting is statistically safer for kids than football, bicycling, and tennis
If you love hunting, you need to arm yourself with The Politically Incorrect Guide(tm) to Hunting, so that the next time you encounter an anti-hunter, you'll be equipped to shoot down politically correct myths and defend this great American sport against all attacks.

Hunters are good, and we need them.   Aug 9, 2008
Miniter's book is a fact-based treatment supporting what is perhaps man's oldest honorable occupation. Hunting has changed from it's earliest roots, but Miniter says that today's hunters are the real conservationists. Yes, it's counter-intuitive, but sport hunting never endangers animal populations; it keeps them stable and healthy so that everyone -- not just hunters -- can enjoy them.

And, hunting benefits more than just game species. Without deer hunting, songbird populations would plummet. What's the connection? Miniter gives example after example. Ban hunting and plant diversity suffers, soil erosion increases, and habitat disappears.

Miniter says that hunters pour more money into conservation than anyone on the planet, including "environmentalists," and he offers proof. Miniter claims that hunters have saved many species from extinction, and he provides the evidence. Miniter shows how hunters even play a role in keeping our air transportation system safe.

I discovered how serious that issue is last spring. As I sat beside a US Airways pilot on a flight to Alaska, he told me that colliding with animals is one of the greatest dangers during take-offs and landings. He said that few pilots haven't hit a deer or a goose.

Think it's bad when you hit one with your car? When an animal is sucked into the engine or goes through the windshield of an aircraft, they cause millions of dollars in damage. One goose can crash a plane and kill a whole flock of people.

Hunters are good, and we need them. They are the key piece to the wildlife management puzzle. Don't get your information about wildlife management from Animal Planet and the Disney Channel, where wild animals stay hermetically sealed behind the TV screen. Get it from the real world. A good place to start is The Politically Incorrect Guide to Hunting by Frank Miniter.
From a Swedish perspective  May 12, 2008
This is a truly great book that all hunters should read. Hunting is threatened in all countries, despite the fact that the arguments for hunting are solid. The general public does not know enough about the effects of hunting, and tend to "vote against it" whenever they get the opportunity. This is an information gap that hunters need to close, by taking the discussions whenever and wherever we can. This book gives you ample arguments, in case you did not already have them. Also, it provides fun and interesting reading. As a Swedish hunter I am fascinated to discover that the situation is so similar across the Atlantic, but there are also some very specific issues that I had never herd of - like the aligator hunting. Thank you for an excellent book!
Great information for everyone... even hunters!  Apr 21, 2008
Information is well presented and hits on the key points that everyone, including hunters, should know. I was pro-hunter before reading this book, but now I have even more reason to support this all-American tradition and sporting pastime. Reveals the anti-hunting groups for who they really are... arrogant elitists who believe "rights" are endowed by MAN (not by God). The book provides answers to all the anti-hunting arguments and also educates the public of the beneficial impact of hunting in areas of the environment and economy that are not widely realized.

Excellent book!
Politically Incorrect Guide to Hunting  Feb 26, 2008

Affected by poor sourcing and potential exaggeration, but far from bad - let alone "incorrect"  Jan 31, 2008
The eleventh book in the erratic but fascinating "Politically Incorrect Guide" series takes a look at a subject my knowledge of Aboriginal foraging has entirely failed to help me understand, and which my previous reading of "New Age" literature or anti-hunting fanatics had clearly found me out even with the limited knowledge I could get at Melbourne University.

"The Politically Incorrect Guide to Hunting" demonstrates first of all how being an experienced hunter is an irreplaceable asset in understanding ecology. The knowledge Miniter gives of animal behaviour in particular, beats what I learned about environmental management as a student. Especially noteworthy is how he shows hunters must know a great deal about the behaviour deer and more essentially bears to hunt them at all. In a later chapter Miniter shows how this knowledge is needed to merely devise potential means of stopping animal-related accidents on roads and railways.

One good thing about "The Politically Incorrect Guide to Hunting" is that Miniter focuses enough on the practical benefits of hunting to avoid being too ideological. Indeed, in contrast to most other "Politically Incorrect Guides", he does not follow the hard-line track so beloved of Human Events. Ample space is given to the potential negative effects of unregulated hunting on private land before Theodore Roosevelt, which is welcome from a publisher that too often omits anything that does not suit its arguments. Like Robert P. Murphy Miniter shows hunting can actually save species from extinction by preventing illegal poaching, but gives far more usable examples than Murphy does. Consequently Miniter cannot, like most "Politically Incorrect Guide" authors, be criticised as ignoring evidence from opponents: instead, he clearly recognises the need for regulation and does accept it matters little whether it comes from a private or public source.

The section about animal attacks on people are particularly good and provide the best possible argument for hunting. Although Miniter shows how hunting bans make potentially dangerous animals genuine threats to people they meet, I do have considerable suspicion of his statistics' accuracy because he fails to back a single one up with reliable sources. This is particularly true of the data about bear and cougar attacks, which quite probably are better reported with improved communication. Miniter's data as to the safety of hunting can probably be doubted for the same reason, but hunting is obviously not as dangerous as, say, motor racing or gridiron.

Having experience with deadly pests like cane toads, foxes and feral pigs in Australia, I very much agree with Miniter's point that hunting is a very effective way of limiting the population of vertebrate pests. Tim Low shows the extreme difficulty of controlling vertebrate pests, and Miniter confirms my belief that finding ways to use their parts (e.g. toad skins or feral pig meat) is a vital part of vertebrate pest control. Miniter's illustration of how these pests are at their most deadly on isolated islands like Hawaii agrees 100 percent with my basic knowledge of biodiversity, further adding to his credibility.

Another thing is that - though only for a small part of the book - Miniter at least tries to move beyond the usual American-centredness that plagues the "Politically Incorrect Guides" series. His information about how Italy and Japan face the same problems as the American West is certainly surprising, whilst his point about elephant overpopulation is well-placed. It's a pity he wouldn't go into how hunting's effect would be different in different environments.

Apart from the statistics which often look and sound quite exaggerated, "The Politically Incorrect Guide to Hunting" offers what other books in the series claim to do but do not - refuting politically correct myths.
