The Wild Hunt blog is a must-read for those interested in news and events dealing with the modern Pagan and Heathen communities – and religion coverage in general. – M.Z. Hemingway, Get Religion

…a source for smart commentary on a broad range of news, media, and ideas from a pagan perspective. – Jeff Sharlet, author of “The Family: The Secret Fundamentalism at the Heart of American Power”.

The Wild Hunt
is a community-supported, daily online news journal. It has become the primary destination for those interested in following news and commentary relating to modern Paganism, Heathenry, Polytheism and other minority religions. Since its founding in 2004, The Wild Hunt has grown to become one of the most-visited and popular destinations exploring these topics.

In 2004, founder Jason Pitzl began The Wild Hunt blog as an experiment. He wanted to create a daily blog focusing on news of interest to Pagans. Over the next seven years, Pitzl was the sole writer and editor of The Wild Hunt. During that time, interest in his work only kept growing. Then, in Summer 2011, The Wild Hunt was recruited to Patheos.com, a central hub site that hosts blogs from many religions.

However, after another year of substantial growth, The Wild Hunt returned to being an independent entity. In the fall of 2012, Pitzl brought on its first weekly contributors and monthly columnists. Since then, The Wild Hunt has blossomed into an independent media outlet with 3 weekly writers, 10 dedicated columnists.
