Marrying of hunters and non-hunters. In 2019 everyone is free to have an opinion but what that means is more than just voicing yours, it’s rather listening to the opposite sides viewpoints. This goes for both hunters and non-hunters, however, it seems as hunters we opposed or misjudged more often than not. Many non-hunters are don’t have a full understanding of the tradition of why hunters hunt. Instead, non-hunters want to pretend that an animals meat or offerings somehow spontaneously make it to the table. In 2019, nothing draws more attention and animosity then hunting and animal rights activism. Which is why acclaimed writer Steven Rinella and Zero Point Zero Productions created the documentary feature, “Stars In The Sky.” In hopes to mend the misunderstanding of why we hunt and begin to teach the value of this tradition and hobby so many men, women, and children love.

Why This Topic Is So Important –
It’s hard these days as it seems that so many people and organizations have misconstrued ideas of their opposites. However, this is a time where it’s not about picking sides, but rather a time to teach and educate. When it comes to hunting there are so many components that are being challenged such as ethics, public lands, conservation, gun-rights, and many more. You name there is someone or some organization that wants to butt-heads with hunting. However, what few ever indulge in is learning about the tradition, the morality of it, and the reason behind hunting.
Thanks to Steven Rinella and Zero Point Zero Films, they have the resources and platforms to begin a conversation to educate the public. As now is better than to learn about hunting before it becomes more and more challenged and misunderstood.
