fox hunting

David Isay's piece on the latest re:sound makes me think that hunting isn't so bad after all. Their type of hunting at least. 

Hinkel Schillings and Shade Pate are uncle and nephew. For over sixty years, along the Texas-Louisiana border, they have gone fox hunting. Several times a week they sit around a fire from sunset to dawn listening to their hounds bark. That's all there really is to fox hunting -- listening.

 Put on your headphones & have a listen of your own (it's on the Animals Show, which aired Nov 22nd.). Gorgeous, sound-rich, masterfully done stuff.
