Part II (Sunday) was recorded over dinner, feasting on Lane’s last buck with Paul Dupuis (Lane’s last camera man) at his cabin in central New Hampshire with the North American Tracker crew.
And finally, Part III (Monday) is a remaster of the original interview that we did with Lane, just under a year ago.
