The Bull Moose Hunting Society founders, Nick Zigelbaum and Nick Chaset, provided the wild boar which they had killed themselves on a non-functioning ranch just north of Sacramento. "We've literally seen these animals from field to plate," said Zigelbaum. "They ate lots of alfalfa and almonds. They lived a good life and they died quickly." The aim of the Bull Moose Hunting Society is to bring hunting back into the food chain. Zigelbaum had never shot a gun until a year ago, but felt it was his responsibility as a meat eater to know exactly where the meat he was eating came from. "Wild boars are a non-native species. They can smell water so they dig up irrigation systems, and they eat everything." Shooting the boars was a service to the farmer on the plot next to the ranch. The ranch's proprietor taught the two Nicks not only how to track and shoot the animals but also how to skin, dress, and hang them. They drove all the way back to San Francisco with their first catch and went straight to a butcher to have it dissembled. "Everyone in this room could be a hunter," said Zigelbaum, as we watched the once-heaping plates of food diminish to nothing but leftover greasy tidbits in a matter of minutes. "What we want to do is bring urban people through the hunting process, from tracking the animals to cooking the meat."
