Video of the Week: Benji Hill is a Traditional Hunter and Minimalist

Hunting is a way of life for professional guide and survival instructor Benji Hill. He lives on game meat year-round which is no small task. Hill builds and hunts with his own gear which is more challenging but infinitely more rewarding. It can take as many as 300 hours of scouting, glassing, tracking, and stalking for him to harvest a single large game animal, but the reward can be as much as 150 pounds of elk. Benji and his family live on a small farm in Idaho where he cares for his pack goats which he often takes for walks around his neighborhood.
