COLLIN: My name is Collin and I am 10 years old. COLLIN: This is my first deer hunt. SOUNDS GETTING READY
Dad: Here Collin. BACKGROUND SOUND DAD: Just being in the woods are some of my
fondest memories of turkey hunting with my father and DAD: just kind of the woods coming alive. The different
birds and sounds that we hear early in the morning. DAD: Alright Collin DAD: I’m going to put this around here
out of the way for now, okay? DAD: When we get in the tree, I’ll pull
it out and wrap it around the tree. DAD: so you’re safe in the tree.
That’s your fall rest system okay? BACKGROUND SOUNDS DAD WHISPERS: Right now, we just have to be quiet. DAD: Listen, you can hear the coyotes. DAD: You can hear the cows. BOY: I don’t see them.
DAD: Okay so the safety’s off. DAD: I saw a really nice big buck.
BACKGROUND SOUNDS DAD VOICEOVER: I certainly would like to pass on to my kids DAD: a lot of the same experiences, the opportunity to spend time together, DAD: and have an appreciation for nature, the resource that it is
and how we can use it to have a good time DAD: outside of the video games and the
other media distractions that there are today. DAD WHISPERS: What they do is they come together.
ANTLER SCRAPING SOUND DAD: Sometimes they are running away (IMITATES SOUND) and they’ll
stop and turn around and wonder what made the sound. COLLIN VOICEOVER: I saw a gopher, some squirrels, some frogs, COLLIN: and a buck. I didn’t see any fish or birds. COOKING SOUNDS DAD: Hand me that plate Hunter.
BREAKFAST SOUNDS DAVE LANDOWNER VOICEOVER: For the kids themselves, there is enormous benefits. DAVE LANDOWNER: One of the really intriguing things about hunting or fishing, DAVE: or any outdoor activity is that you make
hundreds of decisions every time that you go DAVE: and learn all kinds of things about
responsibility and results of things that you do DAVE: and how they influence others.
They learn a lot about natural history DAVE: and I believe there’s a real intrinsic connection of people to nature DAVE: there’s a way to reinforce and it’s
just a time of peace and enjoyment. DAVE: And its really nice in these busy days
when kids are connected and engaged so much DAVE: to have the time to really seek some of
that peace that you can only get through nature. RAKING SOUNDS SETTING UP BLIND SOUNDS DAD: Those deer are either going to come
out from behind that fencerow over here. DAD: See that where that green is there?
COLLIN: Yes. DAD: They are either going to come out from behind there–that’s a fencerow, DAD: and go to this corner of the
pond, or there’s another break in the fence DAD: right over here and they’ll come right around that way. DAD: And again they’ll come right in front of us and
go to that same corner, that low spot on the pond. NATURE SOUNDS DAD WHISPERS: We’ll have to wait until official dark.
We’ll be here for another four hours or so. NATURE SOUNDS DAD WHISPERS: We’re seeing deer. The deer are moving. That’s good. COLLIN: Can he hear? NATURE SOUNDS MAKING ANTLER SCRAPING SOUNDS COLLIN: Why are they running? BACKGROUND SOUNDS COLLIN: It takes patience to have a successful hunt. DAD: It’s called hunting not shooting. DAD VO: I don’t remember the times whether we harvested an animal DAD VO: with my dad or not. It was the experience
of being out there with him that meant the most to me. DAD: Did we have a shot at any of them?
COLLIN: No DAD: That happens sometimes though doesn’t it? DAD: So the solution is to go hunting again isn’t it? DAD: You still gotta get your deer.
COLLIN: Yes DAD: It was a good time though? You know the best part for
DAD: That I got to go with you.
COLLIN: Yes. DAD: Alright. You have a good night’s
sleep and we’ll go hunting again.
Alright buddy. OWL SOUNDS
