New Film Documents Three New Hunters
You’ve heard it before. Learning to hunt isn’t a one-time event – it is a journey. It takes time to learn about wild animals, safe firearm use, hunting techniques, and butchering an animal. And without a community of people to learn from, it can seem impossible.
Many hunters forget that the things they know today may have been learned years ago as a kid. But we assume every hunter should inherently know those things. So what would it be like to get a fresh perspective, looking at it from new eyes?
“Awaken the Hunter Within”
One Minnesota company set out in 2017 to produce a hunting film to do just that. Modern Carnivore™ mentored three new adult hunters and filmed their journey. From their very first interest in learning to hunt to eating a wild game meal, the whole thing was captured.
I had the pleasure of scouting with Becca, Pierce, and Alex as they prepared for their first deer hunt. We looked through aerial maps, talked about different kinds of deer sign, and ultimately used that information to choose a spot to hunt. Check out the clip below.
If you’re learning to hunt right now, did this resonate with you? Are you having similar concerns or struggles as you’re learning all of the skills that go with hunting?
And if you’re an existing hunter, do you see why it’s important to step back and explain the basics? When you’re mentoring a new hunter, take the time to explain the “why” behind every decision.
