“I find this to be one of the absolute pleasures of my life right now. And every one of these is a treasure. Truly.” – Perry Masotti
Tripp ventures across upstate New York bird hunting what he keys in as wild birds. Set on the adventures of the northeast landscape, he stresses that in a world of hunting preserves and instant satisfaction this tradition can not be replicated or replaced.
“For Tripp Way, Northeast Regional Director of The Ruffed Grouse Society, ruffed grouse and his pursuit of the bird represents many of the best things about hunting. Way talks about some of those things in ‘Because They’re Wild’, a rich and heartfelt film by A.J. DeRosa.” – Wide Open Spaces
