Originally shown in 2014, "Touching the Wild" follows naturalist and author Joe Hutto’s quest to coexist with a family of wild mule deer in Wyoming s Wind River Mountains. The experiment began with his two-year effort to be accepted and trusted by the animals, then lasted much longer as he remained in their company without scaring them off … something that could be done at a moment’s notice by the presence of another person with whom they were unfamiliar.
