The 8 Most Impacting Ethical Hunting Pics from the Short Film Hide to Heart

We're extremely excited to be sharing the release of TheAlphaHuman.net's first feature short film "Hide to Heart" February 2018.

What an epic experience it was having a camera crew follow us around for 4 days as we went about our hunt.

Shot in the magical high country of South Eastern New South Wales, this groundbreaking Australian film delves into the story of our thoughts and actions on why we need to get into the wild to connect with nature and be aware of our natural balance in sustainable living through ethical hunting.

This film reflects on our reasons for hunting telling an amazing story along the way and delves into the core beliefs and values of why we hunt in a raw and honest tale of mans place in nature.

This is a hunting film... make no mistake about that. We wanted to take the viewer through the whole process... From Hide to Heart to show our place in nature as The Alpha Human and what responsibility that bears.

These are our top 8 Pics from the feature film. We hope you enjoy!

1- The Stalk

 Taken the first morning of our first hunt we had just spotted deer at 240 yards. We decide to drop our bags and commence the stalk.

3- The Process

 This shot was taken halfway through the cape removal. Ensuring clean cuts and care is made the hide of the animal is a great gift given from the animal and should be revered.

5- The Recovery

 Recovering the animal in the quickest way possible allows plenty of time for the protein to be harvested. This 2.5 year old Buck was selected specifically from the herd as his front leg had been broken and he was clearly struggling to keep up with the herd.

6- The Final Breakdown

 Having removed the cape now we get to the more technical part of quartering up the protein.

8- Ageing 

 The temperature during the filming never reached over 4 degrees celsius. Some nights the temps got as low as -12 degrees so we could allow the carcass to hang naturally without fear of the protein spoiling before transporting it back in our Yeti's home.
