[hunt-og-ra-pher, noun] -- A Huntographer is someone who combines their passion for hunting, videography and photography.
Ever since I could remember, I've loved the outdoors. As a kid growing up in New York City, I looked forward to heading upstate New York on the weekends to our mountain cabin. There we'd get to enjoy the clean crisp air, lakes, streams, fishing, target shooting, hunting, campfires, the stars, the people, the stories and most of all, just being in the woods. It was a memorable time that left a huge impression on me. One that helped shape much of who I am today. I thank my parents deeply for that.
So what does this have to do with the video above? Well, it turns out there are many of you out there just like me. Regular folks who had the privilege being introduced to the outdoors at an early age. You grew up with a love for hunting and fishing. You experienced traditions passed down by our elders. You became outdoorsman!
Yet, on the flip side, some of your were not as fortunate. You may not have had the same opportunities to experience loading up your Marlin .22 rifle and taking aim at a target or casting a bass lure in a swampy pond or getting up at 5am at deer camp on a cold and frigid morning. Yet somehow along the way, you picked up a love for it on your own, at a later stage of your life. And today, it is a deep part of you.
Each one of you has something in common. A deep passion for hunting, fishing or our shooting sports. But there is something else as well that bonds us no matter what side of the tracks we come from. Our Stories.
