The Way It Was follows Sid McCullin and Lynn Beaty as they share their hunting knowledge with the next generation of outdoorsmen. Lynn and Sid’s friendship was established in 1970, after a slight altercation on the college football field. The two players did not know each other at the time, but after the dust settled, the two became lifelong friends. Sharing the same core values of faith, family, hard work, and a strong passion for the outdoors has led to 47 years of hunting experiences together. Sid and Lynn’s vision for The Way It Was is to teach others the way things were when they were learning about the outdoors, and to positively impact a society that is filled with instant gratification and technology. The Way It Was demonstrates that a strong foundation of faith, family, and outdoor traditions can still impact a person’s life for the better, just as it did when they were growing up.
