Chris Glimour

Chris has been hunting for over a decade and harvested his first deer with a bow and arrow he made himself. He strives to harvest a significant amount of his families food from the land in a sustainable manner. Today he hunts a mix of big and small game as well as waterfowl. He hunts with traditional bows, crossbows and firearms. "Hunting to me is about so many things, it is part of my identity as a human. To me, hunting is about a deep connection to the land, being part of the food chain, providing for my family while being a steward of the earth, and achieving self-reliance and independence from the modern industrial food system."
