My father raised me to be a hunter. Every fall, since my twelfth birthday, we've followed the migratory birds that descend from Canada to central North Dakota. Approaching manhood, I've become more aware of nature's vulnerability, especially as I master field dressing wild game for evening meals. Exhausting and exhilarating, the time I spend with my father in the field has become a ritual as steady as the migrations they depend on. My photographs are witness to this ritual and it's place in the layered order of the natural world.
