Millions of people take to the woods in pursuit of whitetails each year in North America, but what is it that they are truly hunting for?
In this film, we’ll join a trophy hunting bowhunter, Dustin Lutt from Nebraska, and Aaron Hitchins, a traditional party-hunting rifleman from Ontario in their first deer season spent in Kansas, the nation’s whitetail capital. With polar opposite perspectives on the sport, how will a season in the heartland affect their views on this Game of Inches?
An official selection of the Hunting Film Tour, this film is about more than bowhunting, more than deer. It is about creating an understanding between all of the parties who share our love for the hunt, and reminding them that regardless the specifics of their pursuit of choice, to evaluate what it is we are truly hunting for.
PLEASE comment with feedback on the film, we are looking to create discussion here so don't be shy about your opinion!
Also, take the time to thank our sponsors who made this possible:
There comes a time in all of our lives when we let ourselves dream about living life on our own terms. When we wrestle with the decision to take a step into traffic, follow our passions and live deliberately - or simply let another day, and daydream, pass.
In the end, it doesn’t matter if we make the decision of our own accord, or life makes it for us. It’s where our heart and soul are that matter. For some, the result is a closer alignment between vocation and avocation, for some it’s a reprioritization of what’s important in life, for some it’s the very real difference between life and death.
Set primarily against the diverse, rugged and breathtaking landscape of Idaho and Oregon, A Deliberate Life explores the stories of five unlikely friends who share the same love of fly fishing and the outdoors and their choice to lead a life according to their passions.

On September 25th we were proud to be a part of Zach and Lindsy's event. They are a really fun couple and made our jobs very easy with this project! We only hope that our vision has matched theirs and their film will make their day impossible to forget even a detail. This Reel is only a fraction of all of our favorite shots. Three minutes is never enough! Their full film will fit them all though :)
Thank You to Scott for being my assistant. This shoot was 20 hours door to door and I can't do this without him.

So according to Tracy I spend all my time taking pictures and videoing everyone else but us :) Maybe she's right but its hard to to be the guy behind and in front of the camera. Thanks to Scott for filming most of this for us. I hope everyone enjoys!
