Three bold women test their endurance and wits as they brave the formidable, migratory journey of a pregnant, scrawny doe.
|Sam Dwinnell, expedition leader, studied the behaviors, habitats, and life-histories of Wyoming Range mule deer from 2013-2020 as a research scientist with the Haub School. She has captured Canada lynx in Colorado’s mountains and tracked bighorn sheep in the Tetons among other wildlife projects, and is currently working toward a PhD studying reindeer in northern Norway.
|Anya Tyson, naturalist and adventurer, thrives at the intersection of conservation and communication. Wielding an accordion and a harmonica, she uses music to engage hundreds of volunteers. A former wildlife technician, she loves to bushwhack, cover ground, and use binoculars whenever possible.
|Tennessee Jane Watson, deer impersonator, is an award-winning documentarian and an avid long-distance runner who’s completed two NYC Marathons, the Boston Marathon, and countless 50k trail races.
|Jayme Dittmar, director, is an Alaska-based outdoors enthusiast and visual storyteller. She has produced national award-winning shorts for the Department of the Interior, Planet Forward, and Montana PBS. When not filming or editing photos, Jayme can be found behind a dog team, hunting, fishing, or climbing.
|Morgan Heim, director, creates films that weave together the stories of wildlife and humans sharing our planet. Mo is a Senior Fellow with the International League of Conservation Photographers.
