Bigger than my head and with a heavy weight, the heart wrenches attention from the rest of the world as the tundra refocuses. Cutting a slit through the heart’s wall to open it like a book, I let the coagulate fall to the ground. Setting the heart aside, we continue to butcher the moose, a true giant of the North.

Most of us get our food from supermarkets. Some of us try to go organic and natural and cage free and all those other positive buzzwords people use to feel good about themselves but there are very few of us who still hunt for our food. These guys do. And they’re not ashamed of it. Here’s why.


Man Hunts Giant Monster Boar That Weighs Over 200kg

Damn, that’s a big boar. Hunter Jett Webb took down this ginormous 2.1m long and 227kg boar on a hunt in the US state of North Carolina with just one shot from his AR-15 rifle from 45m to 95m away.

Watch A Sailfish Try To Bludgeon Fish Bait To Death With Its Spear
