The Heart of Hunting

The Heart of Hunting sets out to capture the essence of the hunting experience in New Zealand, by reflecting not only on hunting itself, but on the experience of wilderness that is so key to this cherished activity. The writer, Greig Caigou, combines storytelling and meditations on many aspects of hunting, all of which is based on the premise that wildlife is truly understood, and often deeply appreciated, through the eye of a hunter. Integral to the book are the wonderful wildlife photographs of Matt Winter, whose motivation is always to celebrate wild animals in their natural environments.

We wanted to add to the body of quality hunting books in New Zealand. The writing attempts to portray the very real and raw experience of the final act of hunting, as well as the other elements that get us out into the hills wilderness values, free living within the rhythm of nature, seeing and appreciating animals, comradeship, shared adventure and individual hardiness. Greig

My vision for this book was something that would appeal not only to hunters, but to all those who love wild nature and the high country. Working in the outdoors, I especially enjoy watching birds and animals as they go about their daily lives. I wanted to present this wildlife through high quality photographs, especially by capturing the dynamics of animals in their natural habitats. Matt
