At Weeks End
I had an epiphany this week.
Coursing through TV channels on one of those rare evenings when I wasnt absorbed by a book, I ran onto one with 24 hours of outdoors programming. I arrived at the start of a hunt for mountain goats in New Mexico, those sure-footed animals with mildly serrated and curled horns.
Three were jogging over jagged outcrops, cute as adult wild things could be. In pursuit were three hunters, dressed in obligatory camouflage clothing, as if it hid them as they traipsed through green yucca and cacti dotting a desert landscape. They were armed with high-profile hunting rifles topped with high-resolution scopes.
