It seemed they were always far enough ahead of us to be just out of reasonable range. Finally, as they were cresting a ridge, the Page 18 buck stopped and stood in profile, as mule deer often do. He was about two hundred yards away. 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.
Yet the fact that this argument has most frequently been made by antifeminists like Camille Paglia and Christina Hoff Sommers has allowed radical feminism to remain (too) comfortably perched on its moral high ground. This is especially true with regard to those distinctly American strains of ecofeminism inspired by radical feminism. Page 5 Women and animals, in this view, are necessarily the prey, men the predators. The testimony of women hunters, however, confounds this interpretation. Take, for example, the following narrative by a seventeen-year-old deer hunter about shooting her first turkey: The bird was less than thirty yards away and I had never been that close before.
In the past decade, owing no doubt to some extent to the women's and environmental movements in this country, the number of women who hunt has doubled, from one to well over two million. Women are more likely than men to have taken up hunting as adults than as children. More often than not they have to overcome substantial barriers of male sexism and negative peer pressure from other women to become adept at what might be, in the popular mind, the most male-identified cultural pursuit. Why women hunters, and why now?
