Netflix is releasing a movie about the love of the sport and father son bonding of whitetail hunting.
A movie on Netflix about whitetail hunting with an A-List actor? You better believe it! What a breath of fresh air for the hunting community to see hunting put in a positive light to the masses in America and more.
The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter will be released on July 6th and it looks to be a great mix of humor, family traditions, cinematography, and more as a father and son share the great outdoors. Josh Brolin, a very credible actor, known for his roles in the Goonies, No Country for Old Men, True Grit, and American Gangster, takes on the lead role as a father named Buck Ferguson who loves whitetail hunting, just like most of us avid sportsmen. Buck has a TV show, and over the years has lost touch of the father he hoped to be.
His character embarks on a hunting trip with his cameraman, who is played by Danny McBride (Eastbound and Down, Vice Principals), and his young son for an epic weekend of whitetail hunting in hopes of reconnecting with his offspring and hooking him on the great sport of whitetail hunting.
As a hunter, do you need to hear anything else? It is a movie about hunting...on Netflix! Check out the trailer.
We all remember our first hunt and many of them are full of memories with our fathers. There is something special about a father/son bond that is created on a hunting trip, so we're predicting this movie will be one we can all relate too.
As I mentioned earlier, hopefully this movie can portray a positive light on the hunting world. In a society that often sees hunting from the outside and pins it as a vicious hobby of harming animals, this movie could possibly showcase the family values, work ethic, and true meaning of hunting and enjoying what the wilderness has to offer.
It looks like they'll accomplish all while giving us a few laughs along the way. The creators of Eastbound & Down, a wildly popular HBO show, contributed to this production, and it seems to have a lot of potential.
We'll check back in with a review after it's released.
