Filming Bow Hunting Challenge

Whitetail bow hunting is a challenge.

Getting big bucks on film is rewarding.

Well tomorrow I am heading out for an action packed adventure of bow hunting and filming hunts.

Bow Hunting

I’m looking forward to a day in the world of outdoor videograpy. Actually I’m taking my rifle as well and hoping to see some big bucks. But I want to make it more challenging and get the footage whitetail bow hunting. And maybe one of our big bucks on our property will meander into bow range and maybe I can get it all on video deer hunting. If he’s not in bow range I’ll have my rifle to be able to (cross my fingers) reach out and touch him. Filming hunting(outdoor videography) is one thing, but trying to do it by yourself with amateur equipment on nocturnal bucks is another thing. If I am able to pull it off maybe I should change my career to filming hunting. The big bucks seem to be nocturnal at this point in the season ,and appear to be very hard to pinpoint. So my confidence level is not very high, but I am trying to think positive and just hope to enjoy the day of being in the great outdoors. And hopefully get some good footage of some deer. I plan on filming hunts in a couple of different locations on our property. In the morning I plan on hunting in a location between where the whitetails feed and where they bed. My hope is to catch a mature buck heading back to bed for the day. Then in the midday I am going to set up on a food plot that has a lot of thickets and nice bedding areas nearby, and I plan on staying for a nice long evening of adventure. A cold front has moved in and tomorrow should be a great day, except the wind is supposed to be blowing quite a bit. But I hope to use that to my advantage and use the wind to setup downwind of where I expect to see the whitetails, and the wind will make it harder for the deer to hear any noises I make approaching the stand or any unwanted noises I make setting up or while in the stand.

I enjoy filming hunts and recently I have gotten the fever for filming hunting and whitetail bow hunting. Outdoor filming is something that I am very interested in learning more about. So what’s better than a little on the job training?

Also, today I ordered a cable for my camcorder that should allow me to download the footage to share with everyone.

Potential World Record Deer

Can you imagine being the lucky hunter harvesting a world record deer? We all dream about one day harvesting a trophy buck deer hunting. Heck most of us would love just to see a big deer. Every year many hunters harvest big bucks. Just think what it would be like taking a world record deer hunting. These days it probably change your whole life if you were fortunate enough to do that. I have heard of  hunters taking big bucks and then getting many different lucrative offers to put the story on TV hunting shows, in magazines, or advertising products such as scents, bows, guns, calls, and many other items, and sharing your story about the deer. But imagine the way your life would change if you harvested the biggest typical or non typical buck in the world. I imagine for the most part it would be a positive thing to happen for someone, but I also think it could have it’s negative aspects as well.

World Record Deer

Recently I heard about a humongous whitetail harvested in Buffalo County Wisconsin, that is a potential world record deer. I guess we will find out after the 60 day drying period for big bucks to be officially scored. I imagine the man’s life has been kind of crazy since he took the whitetail. I bet his phone is ringing off the hook!

A food plot can make your property more attractable to deer. Maybe even a world record deer.

The deer will go nocturnal when pressured.

I am going on a hunt this Tuesday morning, and I am planning on taking my camera and camcorder to get some good footage to share with everyone. It has been rainy this weekend and is supposed to rain tomorrow then Tuesday is supposed to be nice and cold. So hopefully the weather will get the big boys moving again. Also, the does that were not bred during the first estrous cycle should be coming back in heat soon, and that should get the monsters back on the prowl again. Our food plots are looking really good and we are seeing quite a few whitetails using them. The later it gets during the season the more attractive they seem to be, since the other food sources become less abundant. The great thing about having food plots is that they provide year round nutrition for the herd when other food sources diminish.

Filming Deer Hunting

Filming deer can be fun and exciting.

Filming deer hunting is a real challenge.

I have tried filming deer hunting before and it is something I am very interested in learning more about.

Filming Deer Hunting Fun

Yesterday I decided to take my camcorder hunting. I setup my tripod in the deer stand with me and attached my camcorder, and waited for the big bucks. I was hoping to get some deer on film, and maybe try to capture myself harvesting a whitetail, bow-hunting.

I got in the stand and the action started filming deer hunting early and was able to have a great afternoon of videoing and hunting. I am really getting the fever for bow-hunting and outdoor videography. I took my bow to test my archery skills, but I didn’t bring my arrows, I always forget to bring all of my supplies hunting. I was able to get a big fox squirrel  and seven whitetails on film, but the big bucks never showed up. I got some really good footage of the whitetails and squirrel. But it started raining while I was there, and rain and expensive video equipment just don’t mix. Especially when you don’t have the right equipment to protect your camera while filming hunts. I am already wanting to invest in a professional outdoor videography package. I found a really cool website that offers professional outdoor videography packages. You can go check them out at CambellOutdoorChallenge. They have a great line of products, and they even have a competition you can enter and compete against other teams filming hunts. So be sure and go over and check them out.

The rain wasn’t too bad so I was able to keep the camera out and I just covered it up and still got some great footage. I had a wonderful evening, I had several whitetails feeding in the food plot and they stayed around feeding for quite some time. It was fun catching them on video. I’m still trying to figure out how to download the video so I can share it with you. I am looking forward to getting some great footage in the near future. I’d like to do it for a living, who knows maybe someday soon I will.
