“Season Opener”, documents our time with a group of hunters on the opening day of duck hunting season a few Autumn’s ago. Every October as the leaves make their change, the mountains in Cobleskill, New York echo with sounds of gunfire. Amongst the cattails, reeds and the shade of the night sky and fog four hunters; Conner, Tyler, Ryan, and Andrew, covered from end to end in camouflage and paint march through the muck and marsh. All in hopes of getting the colorful fowl that occupy these bodies of water. With cigars hanging from their mouths, these shotgun slinging duck enthusiasts continue their yearly tradition and hope to start the year on a high note on the first day of the season.
