On Naked and Afraid XL, hunting guide Matt W. finally tracked down the elusive wild pig he had been hoping to find. After going several days with almost no food, Matt and his tribe mate Russell were in desperate need of nutrition. Luckily for them, some nearby pigs happened to be noisy enough to catch their attention.
Matt and Russell tracked the wild pigs into the jungle, nearly shooting one with an arrow. Unfortunately the arrow deflected and they went home empty handed.
The next morning, inspired by the previous day's hunt, Matt decided to go out on his own and try and harvest a pig. Matt was successful in firing and arrow clean through a wild pig and killing it.
While Matt has harvested several animals in his life, the hunter was overcome with emotion after the kill. Standing above the slaughtered pig, and emotional Matt said, "I don't know if I've ever killed anything that meant this much. It's not just about the hunt right now, it's about our, essentially, gift from nature to, you know, aide in our survival."
While carrying the pig back to camp Matt continued to harp on the impact of harvest saying, "I've killed a lot of animals in my life. Right now, is seriously one of the most emotional kills I've ever had." Matt then thanked the pig for its sacrifice so that he might survive saying, "Thank you for this gift, it will not go to waste."
Upon returning to camp, Russell and Matt built a smoker and feasted on the first meet since arriving in the jungle.
