On January 16, Weatherby Inc. released an ad for a short film which shows Taya Kyle stalk then shoot an antelope in honor of her late husband, Chris Kyle.

The ad was released the same day that Clint Eastwood’s film about Kyle, American Sniper, opened in theaters.

According to Mail Online, the Weatherby project is titled, “He is With Me.” It shows a camouflaged Taya pursue an antelope as she “talks about her late husband’s love of hunting.” At one point during the project, Taya looked at the camera and described hunting as something “beautiful.” She said, “The more I do it, the more I fall in love with it.”

After shooting the antelope, Taya stood beside it, looked into the camera and said: “I do believe Chris was with me. This hunt, I feel like he is always with me, but sometimes more strongly than others.”

Chris Kyle was shot and killed at a Texas shooting range while trying to help a fellow vet with PTSD in February 2013. Since that time, Taya “has been prolific in promoting [Chris’s] charity, the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation.” She has increasingly been in the public eye since American Sniper opened in theaters.
