I’ll come right out and say it, I am not a big fan of about 90% (pun intended) of the hunting shows and videos out there. I don’t subscribe to any of the outdoor/hunting channels, and I don’t have a library of hunting videos. My main gripe with most hunting videos is they don’t show you the true essence of a hunt. Most videos feature a guy setting up, whispering at the camera, and then putting down an animal…all within a few minutes. Where is the preparation?…the hard work?…even the failure?
All of that said, there is a glimmer of hope out there, as there are some great shows and videos being put together these days, not by “professional” hunters, and not by product spokesmen, but by regular hunters like you and me. Guys like Rudy from Huntography, Randy from On Your Own Adventures, and Steve & Lenny from Pure Elevation Productions.
Pure Elevation Productions was founded in 2009 by friends and hunting partners, Steve Speck (owner of S&S Archery) and Lenny Nelson. The guys from Pure Elevation have done an amazing job with their first full-length DVD release, “90%“.
90% tells the story, the whole story of Steve and Lenny’s 2010 hunting season, as they chase elk in the remote backcountry. While most hunting videos are concerned with getting only the “hero shots” on film, the guys of Pure Elevation have captured the whole hunt: preparation, training, failure, and yes…success – BIG success! (One of the bulls harvested in this film was featured on the cover of a recent issue of Eastmans’ Bowhunting Journal.) There are no staged hero shots, no fake encounters, no guides, and of course no fences. 90% is real public land, do-it-yourself backcountry hunting at its best.
90% shows us all that regular guys like you and me can have success in the backcountry with over the counter tags, if we are willing to put in the work.
