Well, this is weird. Justice Scalia was on a hunting trip with The International Order of St. Hubertus.

The International Order of St. Hubertus is a worldwide organization of hunters who are also wildlife conservationists and are respectful of traditional hunting ethics and practices. Founded in 1695, the motto of the Order is Deum Diligite Animalia Diligentes or Honoring God by Honoring His Creatures.


The group's motto is Deum Diligite Animalia Diligentes or Honoring God by Honoring His Creatures.

One way they honor God's creatures is through 'box hunts'. That's where the member's squire (or whatever their porters are called) puts a box with a bird in it in front of the 'hunter', the squire kicks the box to get the bird to fly, and the hunter shoots the bird. I'm pretty sure it's bad form to shoot the bird while it's still in the box. After the birds are shot, the 'boys' gather the carcasses, clean & prepare & cook the 'game' and they have a big dinner.

I imagine it's great fun - old farts get with other old farts like themselves (i.e. same economic, racial and social class), they get to dress up, they get to shoot things, they don't need to exert much effort, they get to eat 'game', they drink a lot and they generally yuck it up.

I think maybe it's an East-coast-old-money vs West-coast thing. Upper class rich folks in the East are just weird. They belong to 'supper clubs' that don't even have golf courses. They think bird hunting is shooting a bird that someone had to coax into flying. They think big game hunting is shooting a mammal that was raised on a ranch.

But The International Order of St. Hubertus takes old-money, East coast weird to another level on the spectrum - so to speak. I go on fishing trips on the Snake that are vaguely similar -- on the scale.

Here's a group picture from their 2013 meeting in Spain. I think they dress differently when they shoot things. But I'm not sure.


The order's current Grand Master is His Imperial Highness Istvan von Habsburg-Lothringen, Archduke of Austria.



Here's the order's web site

Justice Scalia traveled to the order's meeeting in Texas, without security, with his friend, C. Allen Foster (not a hooker, thankfully) on a private plane from Houston. Here's a longer description of Justice Scalia's trip.
