Searching for West is an epic short film about Mark Seacat, a Montana hunter, and his connection with hunting, the outdoors, and the responsibilities of a husband and father of a newly born son. The film has a very powerful idyllic potency. Just as Mark describes these trips as being a rejuvenation for his mind and soul, I too find the same cleansing when I’m in the remote wilderness and I’ll bet many of our readers do as well. For that very reason, I think you’ll enjoy this short film, so please watch it.
The hunt is a pursuit of balance, while searching for the unknown. The balance that death has struck with life, the one sustaining the other. Everything we eat was alive once. The farmer clears his field in autumn for new life in the spring, and there’s a rhythm to it all. One man in one place, doing just one thing at a time.
