Resting the rifle on a boulder, I tried to calm my breathing, pretty much succeeded, and squeezed the trigger. The safety was still on. The buck ambled over the ridge and out of sight. I sat down on the ground and cried out of sheer frustration. I should perhaps point out that the safety on a Browning rifle is easy to operate and virtually foolproof. I could not blame the gun, or even my novice's reflexes, for my failure to shoot. I had the hunting equivalent of writer's block. The spirit and the flesh were both willing, but something held me back.
Some like to start small, shooting birds or small game, working up to larger prey. The idea of thus easing oneself into killing troubles me. It implies a hierarchy of values that makes the death of a rabbit or squirrel somehow less significant than that of an elk or a bear. I cannot watch the death-arrested flight of a duck or a pheasant without an inner pang. Should the day come when I could, I would never shoulder a shotgun again. My first kill was a mule deer buck. It had seemed a long time coming.
Because family and home needed to be defended against invasion, men drew on their weapons, and their courage, to develop the art of war. 4 The sexual division of labor was, thus, crucial to the hunting hypothesis. S. Lancaster's "The Evolution of Hunting"a massively influential essay that quickly achieved a sort of canonical status in the literature about Man the Hunter. In their view, human hunting was to be distinguished from predation by other mammals precisely because the "hunting way of life" depended for its success on leaving the major work of evolution to the males.
