Mansal Denton, aka "Little Beaver" is the founder of Sacred Hunting, host of the Mansal Denton Podcast, and the subject of an upcoming documentary "Below The Drop" exploring our relationship to life and death through hunting. Feeling insecure in early life, Mansal chased a woman to Europe, which led him to prison. Struggling with shame and confusion of what it meant to be a man, he found his calling within the sacred art of hunting. He now desires to share this practice with more men and does so through the group hunt he facilitates over at Please reach out and connect with Mansal if you are interested in being a participant in one of his upcoming hunts. There is a link to an upcoming shed hunt in Montanna Mansal is hosting and linked in the show notes. We define what sacred hunting is, the importance of setting intentions, how sacred hunting differs from the majority of hunting that takes a sportsman or conservation approach. We discuss modern societies' relationship with life and death, rites of passage, what a healthy and united masculine and feminine energy looks like, and making hunting a spiritual practice and way to connect us with our ancestors while communing with local ecologies in a symbiotic and mutual beneficial way.
