The Inertia

Shane Dorian, best known for hunting down and taming enormous waves, has another kind of killer instinct. He bow hunts for deer on Lanai with his son and a guide. Apparently, this manages the deer population on the island, which gets out of control otherwise, doubling every three to four years.

By hunting, he essentially claims there is an appropriate ratio of deer to food, whereas if the deer population was allowed to grow like it would, there wouldn’t be enough to go around and they’d suffer. The people of Lanai hunt for sustenance and for recreation and they have shown Dorian the ropes. For this, Dorian landed the cover of South Pacific Bowhunter.



Only the best. We promise.
