Episode 1: Living With The Deer

Wyoming naturalist joins game herd, 'becomes' a mule deer

Joe Hutto has spent the past eight years living with a herd of deer. He's a wildlife researcher, and he felt that the best way to understand the animals he was studying, was to essentially become one of them. This is the story of how he did that. It’s a story of love, of curiosity, and ultimately of sadness. And it’s a story about what happens when the line between fact and feeling becomes blurred.
