A slightly bizarre video if you are not used to hunting. However it is a great demonstration of trusting the body’s natural tremors in response to the adrenaline surge of this young girls first deer hunt.
The person who posted the video calls the shaking an ‘adrenaline dump’ in the written comment on youtube. That is as good a description as I have heard of why we shake. The person shooting the video does a great job of making the response of shaking really normal and safe. Following Stephen Porges we could say the social engagement he offers helps allow the young girl to feel safe to shake.
