On Veterans Day it is so easy to get caught up in just having a day off. I would like to take this day and go a little deeper into it’s true meaning. To take time to honor our Veterans. I spent some time with some amazing veterans this fall during hunting season and it was truly awesome.
You have seen me post videos with Operation ReBoot OutDoors before and I am truly honored to be able to work with them again. They asked if I would go along for a moose hunt. I had never been moose hunting before, but I truly understand and respect the tradition. You all know how much I love the state of Maine and this tradition definitely brought me true essence of Maine. It wasn’t just about tagging a moose, as you will see in the video, it was about being together in nature and being on a true Maine adventure in the deep Maine woods.
This hunt was veteran Matt Hunter’s first moose hunt and Operation ReBoot did not let him down. Matt served in Afghanistan where he was shot in the line of duty. He really went above and beyond to serve our country and I have so much respect for him.I really wanted to be able to capture the true meaning of this trip for him to look back on. It was amazing to be able to see the correlation between the men they were from their war stories and the men they are now, as they trudged through the woods together. They are good guys who have sacrificed so much of themselves for our country.
This video is not your typical moose hunt video (it is not gruesome). I wanted to spend more time reflecting on Operation ReBoot’s mission, and on the emotions that came out of the whole experience. I have to say this video has meant a lot to me.
Operation ReBoot OutDoor’s mission is solid and so is their character. Help me spread the word about all they are doing to help our veterans get out and discover something awesome.
