THat is a tall order, but good luck!
We film our hunts.. Its difficult, very difficult, because most of the time no one wants to give up hunting to film. We are not too serious about it. Some of the small companies around here asked for our footage, so we give them what we get.. Kill or not... like deer 30 said, it’s not all about the kill.
Depending on the time you have saved up to take off.. we do a lot of diy hunts out of state. Usually you can get in 2 or 3 states for less than $1000. That opens up the door tremendously. Only bad thing is, I hardly hunted PA this year... but we were in MD, OH, IN and MT.
Montana took us well over our normal budget, but that’s one we have saved up for over the past 2 years. You have to be very dedicated to the sport. To do it successfully takes a lot of work and attention to detail. Most times, I do leave the camera in the truck because I would rather get the full experience of the hunt and not worry about the camera. If you are willing to sacrifice a lot and work harder than ever to hunt, you are in the right mind set.. Getting up extra early.. Passing on shots because you don’t have the right camera angle.. It turns into work and I don’t like to work.. I like to hunt. You can PM me if you have specific questions.
We established ourselves as primarily public land hunters and we have had some success, from that, people started asking us to record hunts. Don’t get me wrong, it’s fun doing it, it’s fun watching the footage and its fun getting a little more notoriety around town, but it is definitely earned with hard work and dedication. Do not lose sight that you are out there to hunt and enjoy the outdoors.
