Just as dead

Review of David Carpenter’s A Hunter’s Confession.

The ambiguities with which he wrestles endure in the pursuit of wild creatures to which he now limits himself: fishing.

“You don’t shoot fish,” he tells that same hunting buddy. “And you can’t do catch-and-release hunting.”

Yet a photograph on his website shows Carpenter holding a fine trout in his hands, and it looks just as dead as anything he might have shot.
