If the first 20 seconds or so of this video seem stark, it’s because they are. Staring into the skinned skull of a sheep isn’t meant to be macabre so much as it to be true-to-life. Cole Kramer isn’t going to Nepal simply to kill a sheep; he’s going to walk the razor’s edge that is hunting, complete with the dangers of a possible fall, exposure, and the inevitabilities of old age—his, his guide’s, the sheep’s, everyone’s and everything’s. All hunters have to be aware of these facts when they go afield.
