Kulung climbs hundreds of feet up rope ladders to cut down the hives of the world's largest honeybee. His prize is hallucinogenic honey sought in Asian black markets. Ayers, a Colorado native, told Colorado Matters how shamans sacrificed chickens as part of their blessing for the film. "The Last Honey Hunter" plays Dec. 4 at 7 p.m. at the American Mountaineering Center in Golden.
