Hunting Film is a sketch that appears in "The Ant, an Introduction," the ninth episode of Monty Python's Flying Circus.

Synopsis[]

Bevis (Michael Palin), the homicidal barber, tells his customer (Terry Jones) that he always preferred outdoor life, with things such as hunting. The camera zooms in on a building and a film is shown of hunters exiting the building, mindlessly firing their rifles, one of them dead on the steps as the rest leave. The hunters are then shown in various situations, including disrupting couples making out, falling backwards while firing, breaking a rifle, shooting down planes and getting an egg dropped on the face. They soon return, all injured with birds while the dead hunter still lies on the steps and fires his rifle, causing a bird to fall down as well.
