A wonderful “hunting” video has come along that I need to share with everyone.
It’s unlike any hunting video I’ve ever seen. When I was only half way through viewing it for the first time, I KNEW that I had to write about this video. “Primal Dreams” will appeal to the non-hunter just as much as to the hard-core hunter. What makes it different from other hunting videos is that they portray it from the standpoint of why we hunt.
It’s also very appealing to women, whether they hunt or not. (It caters to our emotional senses.)
“Hunting is much more than killing. It’s human beings absorbed by God’s creation.”
From the opening scene of a full moon viewed through leafless trees, and the sound of a barred owl accompanied by an elks’ bugle; to a whitetail buck in full velvet and a majestic elk coming closer, you know this is the start of our shared hunting dreams.
“When we can no longer draw bows, when sinew has shrunk and bone gone brittle, we will hunt in our dreams because hunting is part of our souls.”
Summertime comes with antlers of velvet and young fawns with spots, and the hunter keeping an ever-watchful eye on the fields of green, in preparation of his autumn hunt. We are shown some magnificent bucks that we can only hope that any one of these hunters will harvest.
“Because of our deep personal interest in wildlife, hunters have paved the way for intelligent wildlife management, in both conservation and preservation”
We are privileged to see the very bucks of summertime, be harvested in the fall.
The late season brings us back to the fields, where wildlife gathers to find food from the harshness of winter. A coyote is harvested. Shed antlers are gathered from the snows’ encasement.
“Hunting is not a sport. It’s a basic human instinct no different than eating, breathing, sleeping or reproducing. Hunters function on instinct. They quietly follow their hearts in a complex form of tracking. We’re all brothers. What we look like and carry in our hands might be different, but what we carry in our hearts is solid proof that we are in fact family.”
