Buffalo Hunters - a hunting movie like no other

"Buffalo Hunters" is a series of films which puts the hunter in the focus of the story. The movie shows their emotions and perspectives, their effort, exhaustion, resignation, hope and after an unforgettable wilderness drama their personal success or defeat.

"Buffalo Hunters" highlights the responsibility of the hunter through his respect for wildlife based on a deep knowledge and understanding of the fascinating cycles of the natural world. The hunt itself rather then the final shot, will become the most intense natural experience irrelevant to the hunters traditional background.

"Buffalo Hunters" lifts Big Game hunting onto a higher level, one that allows the viewer to be moved by experiences captured in the film. The passion to hunt, the love of nature and the importance of sustainability melt together to a unique adventure.

The production “Buffalo Hunters” started in July of 2010. All four parts (13 episodes) will be filmed by Juli 2012. “Buffalo Hunters” will be presented to a wider audience through DVD, downloads and as a 13-part TV series in various countries around the world.
