Hello everyone. I'm glad you stopped in to check us out. On our site you'll be able to view short clips, purchase video's, get our evaluations of the gear we use and much more. We will be producing great videos for you to enjoy. We welcome you to send your photos to us and your stories. You can contact us with comments or suggestions on our contact page.
As you have read on our home page, we are hoping to do things a little different and will hope to compliment the great efforts of those who have come before us. As we have stated all of our videos will feature at least one new hunter or someone who has never been out of their local woods before taking on a new journey. You would be surprised how many hunters that are seasoned and have hunted for 20, 30 or even 50 years, but have never left their home state on a hunt. These are the people we are after. We all know the pro's can hunt and we can harvest animals. But when you take new hunters on new adventures it gives you a great feeling. I have been on a mountain top with a man in his 50's who never has left the mid-west on a hunting adventure. His comments on the beauty and the awesome power of the Rocky mountains made the trip. On that adventure he came home with an unfilled tag but a full satisfaction. He got plenty of pure adrenaline on the trip and never once regretted not pulling the trigger on the one big Bull Elk he did see.
Since I was a young boy watching those shows on T.V. I longed to be able to go out and hunt. When I became an adult I had to deal with the restraints of work, time off and finances and was sure that I could not afford to go on hunts like this regularly. Then we did our homework and found there are many ways to go out on these hunts that most any average working American can make work. Upon becoming a professional hunter we vowed that our mission was to focus on showing people how they could get out on adventures similar to those they see on T.V. Don't misunderstand, a guided adventure is something you will never forget and will surely leave you with a great trophy to take home. We will also show some guided hunts, but many of our hunts will be on public land or private land we have obtained permission to hunt on. There are ways to go on a hunt and pay only the cost of the tag and the gas to drive there. Those hunts may be a little more work but you can have a great time none the less.
Passing on this tradition we love so much is the key. Statistics show that our population consists of 10% hunters, 10% anti hunters and 80% non-hunters. Not only is it important to help the numbers of hunters grow but it is equally important to share the experience with a non-hunter. Once they see how great the experience can be they can decide to hunt or not to hunt but they will have a greater understanding of our love of the sport. They may find something else they like to do on the trip that is part of the hunt.
When I was young and first learning to hunt, I was NOT taught the proper ethics of hunting. I was taught safety but there is a big difference. The values of how to behave and follow the laws and bag limits were overlooked. It was not until after I reached adulthood and paid a fine or two that I realized how wrong this was and how dangerous it was to the sport I really did love. I took a long look at the values I wanted my children to learn and the way I wanted them to behave. Before they got old enough to learn bad habits I made my vow. I vowed never to return to that sort of practice and not to hunt with or associate with folks who do. Most of the new hunters I see today are very good for the sport. Since this change and commitment I have become more successful than ever and I enjoy the sport more now. We are constantly taking new hunters into the woods and teaching them the awesomeness of nature. We are molding more role models for our future. Sometimes we take a new hunter out and they never return to the sport again but they all have left with a greater understanding and respect for what we do. I have taken many young hunters out who may not have a parent to go with them, or the parents are not interested. The reactions you get from them is why we called the show Pure Adrenaline. We emphasize to these young hunters good values and the penalties of getting into trouble outside hunting. If they love the sport, they see that their actions on the street can have a negative impact on their ability to go hunting. We stress that they do not need drugs to get a rush out of life. We show them PURE Adrenaline!
We hope you will join us in our effort to spread the experience of Pure Adrenaline to as many new, young and old, men and women, outdoors-men/women as we can. You will not be disappointed when you take a new hunter out and they harvest their first trophy.
AAHH! the trophy. You will see that our trophies are not always record book animals. A trophy as you will read is in the heart of the person harvesting it. I have seen grown men get so excited upon the harvest of a whitetail doe in a management hunt, that they grab their cell phone immediately to call their wives and share their excitement. That my friends is PURE ADRENALINE!
A very wise friend of mine once told me something that I did not understand right then. He told me to always "Enjoy The Trip". Every time I got in a rush he would tell me this and he told me one day I would get it. I used to laugh and think he had lost his mind. Well guess what. . . I got it. Everywhere you go, everything you do has more to it. Whether it is work or pleasure you have to keep your eyes open and make the best of every moment. We tend to walk past so much beauty in our hurried lives and we don't take time to appreciate the things the Good Lord put here for us to enjoy. From the wonders of how the big oak in the back yard got so big to the beauty of the Rocky mountains, we need to slow down and remind ourselves to "Enjoy The Trip".
In our sport this is just as true. We can concentrate so hard on the hunt itself that we forget to enjoy ourselves. We tend to judge a hunt on whether or not we filled the tag and forget to enjoy the trip. Some of the best experiences I have had as an adult on hunting trips resulted in empty tags. In fact on one trip we never even saw an ELK! The memories from that trip with my wife and son were worth more than three unfilled Elk Tags.
So Remember, take someone new into the outdoors as often as you can. Let them experience a shot of PURE Adrenaline and most of all... "ENJOY THE TRIP" !
