A Hunting Season in Germany

A Hunting Season in Germany

In the new Krieghoff movie we follow Henrik Lott through an entire hunting season in Germany!

“The habitat of wild animals is where we hunters also find our spiritual home – here we feel one with nature – this is where we belong.
I am Henrik Lott. Accompany me on a hunting season in Germany, where we show what hunting means to me and other hunters: It’s about “being in the outdoors”, it’s about experiencing moments during the year that are reserved only for hunters, and it’s about bringing home venison, the highest quality food that nature has to offer.”

“Hunting for me means „Accepting the challenge!“, „Bearing the responsibility!“. Hunting fills my life, it’s fulfilling, and part of my nature.
We live in an industrial and agricultural dominated landscape with seasonally varying amounts of food and cover for our wildlife populations. But we have managed to establish some of Europe’s most species-rich habitats, and at the same time high densities of healthy game populations that are largely in harmony with agriculture and forestry.
Responsible and sustainable hunting is the reason. Our passion for game and our deep knowledge of the natural processes form the basis of responsible and respectful hunting practices. We feel traditionally committed to these.
Hunting is the most natural and sustainable form of land use, because it is an inseparable part of nature.”

    I am happy these old traditions are not forgotten.

    Schoen gemacht. Während Jagd eher nichts fuer mich ist und ich glücklich mit unserem waffenrecht bin wünschte ich im Rahmen von Bio und Tierhaltung fände jagd oefter Erwähnung. Artgerechter geht es ja eigentlich nicht.

  13. Mack Kline on July 11, 2020 at 8:13 pm

    This is awesome my blood is German but I am an American Son from Pennsylvania and we hunt here glad to see my old world brothers still enjoy it as well

  14. Tom Denk on July 11, 2020 at 8:16 pm

    Wow, that was interesting. Just how much smaller the deer, and their antlers, are compared to the US. We can’t use dogs or just shoot everything we see either. I always just used a 12 gauge, pump action, shotgun with just one BB at the end of the barrel for a sight…but I had really good luck, my gun shot so straight that I dropped most of my deer in their tracks-some at over 100 yards. Interesting video.

  15. Hubert Ornass-Kubacki on July 11, 2020 at 8:16 pm

    Absolutely great movie, well done

  16. Pear Chanel on July 11, 2020 at 8:17 pm

    Ein cooles video aber bitte mach die videos auch auf der Deutsche sprache

  17. Eric Ferguson on July 11, 2020 at 8:17 pm

    It’s odd to see hunters wearing shorts. Here in north America everyone is terrified of disease-ridden ticks. The Lone Star Tick has been known to render hunters allergic to red meat, but the worst is Lyme Disease that affects Deer Ticks.

    3:18 wie heißt die Jacke?

  19. DaRealRadioactiveMan on July 11, 2020 at 8:22 pm

    Hunting ducks with no dog?

  20. John Williams on July 11, 2020 at 8:26 pm

    Where are the boars ?

  21. Cesar Romero on July 11, 2020 at 8:27 pm

    Awesome, just 8 more months for deer season here! And 7 for duck season! Just counting down the weeks lol

  22. Chris Fronk on July 11, 2020 at 8:28 pm

    Very good video. Great display of hunting ethic and prowess.

  23. Full Texan on July 11, 2020 at 8:29 pm

    Around 14:30, what are some of these "hunting customs"? I notice you put a specific type of leaf on or in the deer as well. Can you explain further? I’m surprised it wasn’t explained in the video. Sounds intriguing. Fantastic video, hope to see more!

  24. Aristotle Kestner on July 11, 2020 at 8:30 pm

    Very well done.

  25. Thinking Man on July 11, 2020 at 8:30 pm

    LOVE these videos!

  26. Paul 815 on July 11, 2020 at 8:30 pm

    Guter Film, der lässt bei einem "noch" nicht Jäger wir mir ein Verständnis für den Sinn der Jagd entstehen. Es gibt ja fast schon "tradierte" Propaganda, speziell in Deutschland, die Jäger und Jagd per se nicht gut aussehen lassen will. Dass Jagd Verantwortung Respekt vor dem gejagten Wild beinhaltet kommt als Botschaft klar heraus. Und einige fast rituelle Aspekte sind mir auch neu. Befasse mich seit kurzem mit Jagd, Sinn und Zweck und hatte bislang eher die klar rationelle Sichtweise im Vordergrund – als notwendiges Handlung – sozusagen, aber Jagd hat offensichtlich viel tiefere Ebenen des Verständnisses als auch Geschichte.

  27. David Deiss on July 11, 2020 at 8:30 pm

    Can you guys make a movie about the German pointing dogs and upland hunting culture in Germany?
    Thank you in advance.

  28. Joel Fernandez on July 11, 2020 at 8:31 pm

    Awesome and American needs to have this kind of hunting culture. Being responsible and respectable is a good tradition to observe in hunting.

    Das verstehen nur die Jager…WMH

  30. The Big TG on July 11, 2020 at 8:34 pm

    Awesome narration, filming and hunting ethics. Great job mate👍🇦🇺

  31. Mate Vladovic on July 11, 2020 at 8:39 pm

    Wonderful video and a great way to show the ethics of hunting and what hunting should be, Mr. Lott is true gentleman hunter as all should be.

  32. Sercout WildHarvest on July 11, 2020 at 8:39 pm

    Absolute superb Film .

  33. Nate Viningre on July 11, 2020 at 8:40 pm

    That’s awesome

  34. thesheepman220 on July 11, 2020 at 8:44 pm

    Great video enjoyed it

  35. Benn Whitford on July 11, 2020 at 8:46 pm

    Schöner Film. Schön, dass Sie wundervolle Traditionen mit Ihnen teilen, Sohn.

  36. Hans-Georg Hauck on July 11, 2020 at 8:51 pm

    Phantastischer Film!!! Wußte gar nicht, daß es solch schöne Videos über die Jagd gibt. Musik, Botschaft, Information, Licht, Schnitt, Aufnahmetechnik (Drohne über dem Allrad-Kfz im Wald), Perspektiven … alles erste Klasse! In unserer Zeit, wo so vieles verdreht wird, tut ein solcher Beitrag richtig gut. Ich bin leider kein Jäger, sage aber trotzdem auch: Waidmannsheil!

  37. Michal Babuljak on July 11, 2020 at 8:53 pm

    I highly appreciated educational part and forwarder legacy to our young generation! Superb movie. My respect, hat down! Go on!

  38. Nicholas Nikezic on July 11, 2020 at 8:53 pm

    Who was the videographer for this video?

  39. Max K. on July 11, 2020 at 8:53 pm

    Not to fill our freezers, but our hearts… sehr schön gesagt <3

  40. dogrunnerlive1 on July 11, 2020 at 8:55 pm

    A great watch, thank you and safe hunting

  41. K. Theodos on July 11, 2020 at 8:55 pm

    Loved the video! Two thumbs up on that rifle/shotgun too. I like it.

  42. Ade4fish Ade4fish on July 11, 2020 at 8:57 pm

    Opening shot shows wonderful Beechwood just at the start of Autumn/late Summer, then all that Himalayan Balsam. Invasive sh*t is everywhere so it seems. Great film . Ade

    America should learn from the Germans about game management. In the USA hunters go after the biggest and strongest animal rather than culling the herd. It is not good management. Also in Germany, one has to study and pass examinations prior to being licensed; the same for fishing. At one time, there were healthy moose in the Rhineland, but were hunted to extinction by the aristocracy. Henrik Lott would love the hunt in the North America.

  44. Deportes de Primera on July 11, 2020 at 8:57 pm

    thank you most excellent

  45. Tonchy Shultz on July 11, 2020 at 9:00 pm

  46. Bob Mathieson on July 11, 2020 at 9:00 pm

    The Truth is though these beautiful creatures are just hanging on for their dear lives ( excuse the pun )

  47. Alamin Islam on July 11, 2020 at 9:00 pm

    I really like your hunting videos. Where did you go hunting in Germany? Do I need to get permission to hunt in Germany? Or are there any rules, if any? Please tell, I also like to hunt.

  48. Ásagrimmr on July 11, 2020 at 9:00 pm

    Wonderful to see that you are passing this tradition to your son and i hope that he continues on this path.

  49. Penny Braucher on July 11, 2020 at 9:02 pm
