„Shot to the head, if it punctures brain, brings the animal down on the spot, however, if it passes, is not always fatal, provided cutting the jaws doesn’t contribute to the death from starvation”. — W. Korsak, Year of the hunter. The thing for hunters and lovers of nature, Poznań 1922, 176-177 p.
Being a hunter is a complicated matter. The first hunt may seem a harmonious act that has a deeper meaning; contact with nature, a sense of strength, community… All these factors contribute to the visible attractiveness of this action. But these are just appearances. Pressing the trigger is not the most challenging act; anyone can do it. The most difficult thing is what happens next.
