hunting in The United States

Hunting, nature, and freedom, are all essential parts of the great country we know as America. But the history of hunting on the North American continent, started a long time before the first Europeans settled there, as the natives had already been hunting in America for hundreds of years. And history has later shown how this liberated approach to hunting, and nature, would help define the country we know today.

Hunting, nature, and freedom, are all essential parts of the great country we know as America. But the history of hunting on the North American continent, started a long time before the first Europeans settled there, as the natives had already been hunting in America for hundreds of years. And history has later shown how this liberated approach to hunting, and nature, would help define the country we know today.

The first European settlers in America had brought their very feudal view on hunting, as all game in the European countries belonged to the king and higher social layers. But, none the less, it didn’t take long for the adventures Europeans to realize that this land couldn’t be tamed, and the hunting industry started to flourish.

This was the start of a century of professional hunting, and outdoor legends like Daniel Boone, Davy Crockett and Hugh Glass were born!

The legacy of these hunters and the common American trapper has survived till today. Therefore, you will most likely feel how the adventure sneaks up on you, as you hunt the very same species that Indians, fur traders, and presidents have pursued since the birth of America and the American hunting traditions.

Rocky Mountains, Grand Canyon, Yellowstone and Yosemite, are just a few of the most popular nature experiences in America. But apart from these very crowded tourist attractions, America holds a much more precious gem – the unspoiled nature! So, while hunting, make sure you do whatever it takes, and maybe take the time off to travel that extra day into the mountains.  The feeling of “isolation” and real nature, will be extremely overwhelming in a good way.

Despite America’s relatively short history, they have managed to build a very strong foundation based on shared values, with the most important being freedom! When speaking of American culture, nature and hunting has always played a huge part. A series of the country’s most important politicians, and even presidents, have been eager outdoorsmen. The classic example is Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt who has written books about his hunting adventures in the American outback.
