The Hunter and the Hunted- Bridger National Forest

Carl Jung posited the concept of a collective unconscious - the idea that humans can not only create and retain memories, but that certain kinds of memories are with us from birth, passed down as unconscious concepts that we draw upon to understand the world around us. One of those archetypical memories includes the Hunter. For sport, for food, humans have indeed probably hunted since we became human.

We found this hunter, walking with the head of the elk he'd killed, walking back to his camp along Fall Creek Road.
