The Urban Huntsman
The Urban Huntsman explores the meaningful things that sustain us in the natural world and our culture at large; the things that feed and nurture our bodies, minds, souls and communities. We explore the vast European hunting cultures and hunters throughout its regions.
As we guide the audience back into a wilder way of life, where through encounters with wise teachers, we discover what it means to be a hunter in 2021 and ahead.
Wild food and game are pillars in each episode. Together we explore and appreciate that we are a part of nature and not just spectators.
