Deer Stalking Video – Part 1 Of A Series

April 14, 2014

Big hat tip to my friend, Sten, at Suburban Bushwacker for turning me on to this video.  It’s the first part of a six part series, and I’m really looking forward to seeing the additional installments.

Note that there’s not a lot of hype.  There are no high fives or ridiculous, “now that’s what it’s all about,” after-the-shot posturing.  There’s no blatant product placement.  No politics.  Just a quiet, but beautiful setting with a guy for whom the hunt is not just an opportunity for self-promotion.

So enjoy, please.

    Beautiful! Thanks for posting Phillip. The piano line is a bit cheesy but to my mind, this captures the feel of hunting and guiding far better than most hunting tv. Somehow, the subtle meditation of glassing a hillside at sunrise is lost when it’s shot with wacky camera angles and crunchy guitar riffs…

    Good to hear from you, Charlie, and yes, I do think it captures the mood pretty well.

    His rifle has an open top like a Mauser, but it looked like a 90 degree bolt-throw, so I don’t know what it is. I visited the website and aside from a reference to rifle hires, I didn’t see anything about rifles.

    Anyone with better rifle knowledge out there want to enlighten me?

    John, interesting question. It looks a bit like a Sako to me, but I’m not 100%. You might pop over to Sten’s site and see if he knows this guy.

    The stock looks very much like a Sako! That’s where I got lost, I must admit. And the bolt throw looks too high. Still the open top looks Mauser. Anyhow, off to Sten’s site.
