Hunting camps dot the ridges and valleys of northern Appalachia. Here families and friends gather annually for the white-tail deer hunt--a major cultural event for the men of the region.

This is a portrait of one camp, one of the oldest and most traditional. The men hunt the old way: they drive the deer. They keep the traditions of their grandfathers' camp alive in the stories they tell and the way they hunt.
