What is the draw? For many hunters it's much more than the hunt itself, it's the unique chance to find profound connections with our natural world. By escaping into the woods with nothing more than camouflage and a bow, archers are able to abscond the hollow distractions of everyday life and find a space for purposeful reflection.
"The Church of the Woods," epitomizes the sense of peace many hunters obtain on the hunt. To be truly still and hear only silence, is something that often goes undervalued. Life's to short to postpone these adventures, seize the day and find what draws you.
