Sacred Hunting is a Rite of Passage

Join our sacred hunting co-ed immersion experiences, build confidence, and build a deep connection with nature and food.


Most modern people feel they are missing something before they are initiated

This is what initiation creates...

Confidence in self

"There is nothing that inspires confidence in me than literally being able to go out and eat what I kill. Cannot recommend hunting enough."

- Mansal D

Intimacy with nature

"It's a powerful experience to get to connect with the land... spiritually, I had a really big breakthrough just being in that container..."

- Brandon E

Connection with food

"It’s no secret that the food system is broken…[I want to] only consume the meat that I directly hunt or trade” 
- Jordan B

Healthy relationship with death

"Seeing her approach death was an emotional experience...I teared up and cried a bit."

- Tim K


"It was a really great experience to bond with the other [people] there...[I enjoyed] the fireside convos. Awesome group..."

- Kitch W

Deepen spirituality

"My experience with you... has been the most spiritual experience of my life. I can't tell you how much it has changed me and sent me down a rabbit hole of exploring new ideas..."

- MaryBeth Schappert

How its Done

There is no therapy, method, or program as old or as profound as sacred hunting.

Hunting Ethically with a Tribe

Hunting is older than humanity itself. Tribes of men would bond around the fire, share laughs, and provide meat for their loved ones and community.

Indigenous Practices, Prayers & Intentions

Indigenous hunter-gatherers had an intimate relationship with nature and the mysteries of the universe. Reclaiming these practices boosts our sense of gratitude and presence.

Sacred Ceremony with Plant Medicines

Plant medicines, taken in sacred ceremony, have allowed men to expand their consciousness for tens of thousands of years. Examples include cacao, reishi, and others.

Guided By

Mansal Denton "Little Beaver" is the founder of Sacred Hunting, author & TV show host of Blood and Spirit, where he explores psychedelics, ritual ceremony, and wild nature in order to track and connect with the world's deadliest predators. 

Feeling insecure in early life, he 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 with the sacred art of hunting. He now desires to share this practice with more people.

His indigenous name comes from a Crow Sun Dance chief. His spiritual lineage is derived from 8 years of mentorship from a Muskogee/Creek medicine man named Will "Star Heart".
