Ed, the hunter, waits patiently for his doe as she comes within 25 yards. The amazing message of humility Ed reminds all hunters of at the end of this video is what we all need to remember when hitting the woods this fall.

To wait for a doe to get close enough to shoot with an old pistol like that takes time and dedication and reminds us of the beauty of the land and animals we are hunting.
