My Favorite Films - TO THE HUNT
The Forest Lodge Library continues its My Favorite Films series on Thursday, November 20th at 6:30 p.m. with a screening of the documentary feature TO THE HUNT: Deer Season in Tomahawk, Wisconsin.
Jay Leggett grew up in Tomahawk, WI but departed from there decades ago to pursue a career as an actor and comedian. He did pretty well, too. He appeared on ER and The Drew Carey Show and was a regular on In Living Color. He also wrote and produced the films “Employee of the Month” and “Without a Paddle.” Although he found success in Hollywood, his love for his home in Wisconsin and his fascination with the deer hunting culture never abated. He made the trip home for the hunt just about every deer season. Sadly, he departed from this world during the 2013 deer season, collapsing after unloading his buck from his four-wheeler.
TO THE HUNT is Leggett’s love letter to his home, his people and his traditions. Shot on location in and around Tomahawk and including the “testimony” of dozens of life-long hunters this is a fascinating inside look at deer camp culture.
"Most people in America have no idea this exists," Leggett told the Journal-Sentinal’s Paul A. Smith. "I'm proud to be a hunter, and I think the camp culture is fascinating." Speaking of TO THE HUNT Leggett described it as being about a, "joyful, moving and sometimes strange American subculture whose generations are held together by the deep traditions and compelling rituals of the fall deer hunt." (quotes taken from various Journal-Sentinal articles dating 2010 and 2013.)
