Default 3of4 Bull Elk Tags Punched NM DIY

Draw time is coming!!! Just finished up our video from last year's New Mexico hunt! Between the 4 of us we put down 3 monster Bulls! The video is kinda long but I wanted to show the ups and downs of the emotional roller coaster of a hunt. Chasing big game on public lands is by far the toughest yet most rewarding hunting you can do!! So here ya go! If you're using a computer, click the gear box on the bottom right corner and select 1080p HD for best quality. Also it helps to be on wifi! Enjoy!!!

In 11 days, I lost 9lbs... But we put in the work, got off the roads, and saw Elk everyday!!!

Monster bulls! Really cool footage. Wonder if the end results would have been different if the cameras would have made that last trip. Can't wait till next fall.

Prolly not man! We get too wrapped up in trying to make sure everything is on film and there's a lot of, "no, not yet, I'm not on him..." Then the shot is gone! Sometimes you gotta put the distractions away and get serious!!!

Sorry man, I meant PROLLY SO!!! If we would've had the cameras, we would've been too worried about getting it on film and been left empty handed...

Fantastic! Elk hunting is the most frustrating and rewarding and you captured it right there! You fellas did well and the video was amazing. Can you give some insight on the cameras you used. I saw the go pro and the drone but did you have another HD camera? Editing software etc? By the way, the music seemed to fit perfectly. Congrats and I can't wait to see 2017 footage.

Thanks Guys!! I really appreciate the kind words. I take a lot pride in my photography/film/editing... whatever you wanna call it haha It's very time consuming but it's great to have something to look back on years down the road!!!

And yea it was my first trip, but the other guys had a few under their belt... Maybe why they were more successful haha

It started out just 4 of us with 2 tags... When the 6x9 went down, those two guys headed home. Then my partner had to get back to work around day 7. Luckily enough while out on my own, I ran into 2 other hunters with 2 of the same tags. Come to find out, we were all 3 K9 Handlers for the same organization (just different States) so needless to say we hit it off real well. They took me in and allowed me to hunt with them on my last days. They could simply "talk elk"... every time we went out... we had encounters... I could've let the arrow fly a couple times, but all I could see was head and neck from the side and I just couldn't bring myself to risk it! We had been hard at it for so long, the last thing I wanted to do was spend another day tracking a wounded animal... but like I said, the experience was GREAT!! Greatest hunt I had every been a part of and I've been hunting for a very long time and seen some pretty cool stuff, but Public Land Big Game Hunting takes the CAKE, no doubt!!!

Thanks Again Fellas

Thanks for noticing the music. Some people don't care but for some reason that always bugs the crap outta me. I always try to find real suitable, matching music for every video

We had 4 GoPros. All set in different modes/settings for certain shots/scenes.
2 Sony Handycams (which were used the most) don't remember model #s
The drone footage was from early season scout trips, not during the Hunt (that's illegal, although that would've been awesome haha)

For editing I have Windows, use PowerDirector 13 Suite. Be been using it for years and love it! I don't even use most of the cool stuff it can do

I have other hunting videos on my channel if you ever get bored, all filmed with same cameras and edited on same program
