Hello Everyone,

I was kind of leery to make this post. For those of you that have seen me on this forum before you know I was apart of a different show for awhile. It was a great time, and I learned a lot but toward the end I felt myself loosing my passion for the hunt and the experience. Things just weren't the same for me anymore. So I knew I wanted to keep filming, I just didn't want to continue going the route of having a typical "hunting show." 

After talking with my family, I began to start an idea for a new type of show. This video is an introduction video to what my new show is, and why I am doing it. I think it is a very different concept that I hope more people can appreciate, and I know that I will get a whole lot more gratification out of. I was leery to make this post, because I don't want to seem spammy. But I would love to hear the feedback on what you all think of the concept and ideas I have. I appreciate you watching, if you think it sucks and you don't want to see anymore of my videos on here I will stop posting, but if some of you like it and want to see more I really appreciate the support!

it  is  an uphill battle to do this. Most of the reason is you need good private land to hunt on . So much of public land is so poor quality when it comes to hunting. I have walked 41 miles so far after gun season , scouting a piece of public land for more deer stands. In 41 miles , according to the GPS and I keep close track of the miles, I have not seen a single rabbit . I have seen one squirrel, two coyotes together and three deer.   When I deer hunt the area, I see a deer one in four times I sit.  No kid is going to hunt that hard to see so little if all he has is public land. Most people that hunt private would completely give up.  The only reason I even bother is cause I love to be out there . I hardly even go to see a deer. I just like the challenge of seeing them and enjoy it.

Thank you hunting4keeps! That has been one of the most meaningful compliments I have received. I have completely switched my mindset from producing shows about "being a good hunter" or having a "successful" hunt to my true passion, getting outside and taking part in the outdoor lifestyle. Now that I have a little one following in my footsteps, it's more important that ever to set a good example and introduce the next generation at as young of an age as possible!

I dig the videos and idea behind them Tree stand whacker! Preserving the outdoors lifestyle should be a priority to all of us outdoorsmen. The videos reflect your passion for passing down the lifestyle and I think you will inspire people with them. I agree, good stuff!

I have several other videos up, but here is another video of a pheasant hunt with my family. It was my sons first "real hunt" and my 6 month old puppies first hunt as well. There will be a lot more videos like this!

Good idea. I dont watch many H and F videos they seem to focus too much on the big rack or the big numbers so i think you have the right idea. Years ago i watched Dan Small a lot on PBS he seemed to have similar ideas as yours.
