Mindful hunting

Brandon Tennis, a former vegetarian, prays before he goes hunting.

Doug Martin, who grew up on a beef farm, detests factory farming. When it’s time for Christmas or Thanksgiving dinner, the signature dish is likely to be deer meat killed by himself, one of three children or retrieved from a roadside.

“The idea of hunting makes me sick,” says Wilson Alvarez.

Yet, if there’s not enough roadkill around to fill his freezer, he’ll hunt groundhogs, squirrels, rabbits and female deer with a bow and arrows he made himself.

Even as the ranks of traditional hunters decline, these Lancaster County residents are part of a new breed: the culinary or sustenance hunter.

They want healthy food, low in fat, high in protein and not injected with growth hormones and antibiotics. They want the animals they eat to have lived free until the moment they are killed.
