A hunt can go without a single word spoken. Within the quietness of your environment and mind, everything suddenly springs awake with the sight of an approaching deer. The shot is taken, and just as soon as your eyes open, theirs are now closed. Now laying there, the air is even quieter than before; and even though a life has just been taken, there is a new sense of rebirth and peacefulness to it all. This series intends to bring light to the viewer that in hunting, there isn’t always this sense of boasting; that much more of the time, it’s the experience of being out there that makes it worth the journey.
