Female hunters enter the hunting “game” primarily through their spouses resp. partners or their family background. In Pierre Bourdieu‘s theoretical and concep-tual terms that means women as the “parvenus” inside the field are related to the male “established” in an educational and socialisational manner. Thereby is being formed their hunting-specific habitus. Moreover, male hunters have various forms of capital on their disposal and largely dominate the field of hunting in a habitual and structural way. In contrast, the female teammates mostly gain symbolic benefits from their participation in the male-dominated game, distinguishing themselves from male hunting actors as well as non-hunting female actors within the social space. The value of the subjectively experienced profits overlays the act of killing as an irreversible act of violence, and hence makes women to ac-complices of male domination. Once women are positioned in the hunting con-text, their gender-specific habitus turns them into supposed equal hunting fellows or occasional hunting companions who in any case are (or must be) capable shooters. In addition, women are also reliable leaseholders (pro forma), virtuous partners, excellent cooks and/or unquestioning admirers of male hunting suc-cesses. Women seem to sense the fact of not being fully involved in the male hunting game, nonetheless they attach high importance to their privilege of par-ticipation. Accordingly, women experience a new and specific form of distinction from male appreciation and praise.
