Below is a news release from the Idaho Department of Fish and Game.
Mentoring is woven in the fabric of hunting. For millennia the tradition has been passed down through generations and shared with friends. For the tradition to continue, the each generation of hunters are tasked with passing the torch to the next.
Fish and Game’s Maiden Hunt Series explores how rewarding it can be for hunters to pass on their passion for the outdoors, and shares the stories of new hunters, from completing their hunter education and seeking out a mentor to experiencing their first hunt. Each hunter comes to hunting with a different perspective, background, concerns, and interests. From balancing a love of nature with the emotional experience of harvesting an animal, to following in family footsteps, these short films explore the realities of becoming a hunter and illustrate how hunting is so much more than the harvest.
The second video of this three-part series follows the journey of Kori, as she undertakes her first deer hunt. Kori is led by mentor Katie Oelrich, who is also an Idaho Fish and Game wildlife biologist. Go here to view part one: Gretchen and Henry.
