"I love to watch animals. They're alive to everything going on around them. At the same time, they're completely focused on what they're doing. If a bear isn't good at fishing, she may starve to death. If a deer is not alert and fast, he may be shot. Good hunters respect their prey and shoot accurately. Some of them thank the animals for giving them their life. I try to be a good hunter with a brush."
