Episode 20 Hinterland Outdoors
The pursuit of the outdoor connection is ingrained deep within ones spirit.
An unspoken bond and silent pursuit of the next sunrise, and towards the next sunset brings us closer to ourselves, and closer to our heritage.
The draw to the flame of a campfire is felt around the world.
I Hunt…to just be.
Pull up a seat, we have a story to tell….
It’s more than that.
I hunt for camaraderie with my friends and family.
I hunt for mushrooms, berries and wild edibles.
I hunt for rocks and precious gems.
I hunt for time outdoors.
I hunt for the silence and solitude.
I hunt for quiet contemplation.
I hunt for the views.
I hunt for the connection to the landscape.
I hunt to reconnect with my heritage.
“I have always felt that it’s important to be connected to our food, to garden and forage and really think about what we are consuming and the implications its production has on the rest of the world. Physically connecting with & giving thanks to the animals that I harvest, as well as aiding conservation efforts, allow me to pay respect to nature in a way that others simply cannot.”
Does Taina fit the mold? For years, there has been a stigma that surrounds those that choose to harvest their own protein, for those that choose to live off the land in a way that is completely sustainable, renewable and has minimal impact.
In times like COVID, we are incredibly lucky to be able to rely on Mother Nature’s bounty.
Respect, reverence, tradition.
When someone asks “Why”, take the opportunity to engage and enlighten.
Tell them “I Hunt”.
