Longer, warmer days are bringing back that Summer time excitement. That feeling of new possibilities as everything around us blossoms and grows. Even the animals take advantage of this new season to rebuild themselves for the coming year. As hunters, we love this time of year to watch things changes, and we look forward to what the coming year has in store for us. We dream about all the things we didn’t get to complete or do the year before. And now the question is, what are our dreams and what are we going to do to make them a reality?
Truth is, we all dream of things we would like to do, someday, but that day hardly ever comes unless we take steps towards making it happen. There are times, luck may come our way, but most things in life take some planning, work, and effort to make it happen. Maybe we need some directions to help get started, or some motivation or helpful tips and advice.
Many of us, have dreamed about filming our own hunts, making our first short video, commercial for a product, or gaining some editing experience. For some it feels like we don’t even know where to begin when it comes to equipment or how to start?
Here at Huntervids.com we have strived to bring quality and unique videos to watch, from filmmakers from all walks of life, hoping to have something for every style of hunter. Add to that a list of sponsors who all offer top quality products to help in our outdoor endeavors, all working together with one goal in mind, to help grow as outdoorsmen and women.
Not only do we cater towards videos of all sorts of species of animals, but all the films have their own creative style. We can look through the vast array of videos and find one that personally speaks to us, motivates us, or inspires us for days to come. Some of us use that inspiration to make notes of what we think is needed to create our own style of filming. Sometimes even searching out the producer of a film to ask questions and learn about new things, whether hunting or filming. Even researching equipment and coming up with options of things that will fit in our budgets. Ask others for tips or advice on the choices we can afford.
However, maybe filming is not something we dream of, and we just enjoy watching all the up close action in the hunting videos. That’s alright too; we have created this hunting videos website for all to enjoy the great pieces of work that others have spent countless hours creating for our entertainment! Perhaps our dream is to hunt one of those species shown in the videos.
Here is also our chance to watch and learn from others’ hunting experiences on some unique animals and even American big game like the Rocky Mountain Elk. Some videos may be a once in a lifetime hunt for an animal we are not familiar with. As we watch the videos, we make mental notes of the types of terrain they call home. Think of the commitment involved like an exercise program to prepare for the physical demands of the hunt. So many questions arise. Is there special gear or equipment that they used that would make the hunt easier or safer? Are there things about a hunt you hadn’t planned on, like special transportation needs, gear, or trophy?
We can see the times of the year different animals go into their breeding season, captured on camera and some of the creative tactics used to hunt them during that period or outside of it. Many seek to understand animal behavior, or biological questions like if it has to be close to water every day, what are the food sources, where are the bedding areas, or its migration habits. These hunting videos are a chance for all of us to learn, there is always something new to be found on Huntervids.com.
We challenge everyone to use our vast video library as an incredible resource for outdoor entertainment, an avenue for everyday people to pursue their creative dreams, and share those with the world. Hopefully they are a source of information for us to utilize in pursuing our own dreams. Whether it’s filming, or hunting, or fishing, we hope to inspire, to push people to find something, to help point them in the right direction, and give the motivation to fulfill our outdoor dreams in 2015.
