Each deceased's fatal wounds had both front and rear entry into/from the body, with no sign of bullet fragments. And each only had other minor wounds, with no signs of struggle. The BAU immediately believe each was running away from something or someone in the forest. Piecing together the information, they learn that there are two unsubs whose killings will soon cease when the hunting season starts in three days.

Human Season
29 July 2014 | by (Melbourne Australia) – See all my reviews

Brilliant episode from start to finish with the BAU team chasing hunters in the Idaho forest. However these hunters aren't hunting animals but instead capturing humans & using them as their game. Guns aren't their favorite choice of weaponry, these hunters are smart they use arrows which are a lot quieter than guns.

The unsubs are brothers who were trained and taught these wicked ways by their uncle when they were young.

This episode reminded me of the movies Hard Target & Surviving the game where the human is the main target.

It just goes to show when your in the wilderness its not just Grizzlies you have to watch out for.
