Chasing Solitude film- Now Available
My solo moose hunting film, "Chasing Solitude," is now available on Blu-ray disc and Standard DVD,( running time 107 minutes) and can be purchased on-line from my website Herd Bull Productions. Or you can pull down from the Bowsite Sponsors list. I take you along to three mountain ranges in Alaska in search of moose. It is self-filmed and funded. However, I have been on the Sitka Pro-staff / Athlete staff since 2007, and you will see equipment that I use. A story from one of the hunts from 2017, will be published in the next issue of Traditional Bowhunter Magazine, and may add to this video experience. Thank you for your interest and support. Mike
I am looking forward to getting a copy. I have to say, last early October, after recovering from my extensive heart surgery, my wife asked me, what should I bring you.....
I told her to get my book, One With the Wilderness, it was a great read, again, and great for recovery,,,,,,, I loved that book
Just ordered. Ship it fast! Lol honestly can t wait.
Congrats Mike! Looking forward to it:)
Just ordered. Look forward to watching the adventures
Sweet!! Just ordered Mike and I can't wait to watch it. I also have your book and really enjoyed that. You are an inspiration
I have a brand new shiny copy of Mike's dvd sitting at my tv set right now. Planning to watch it tonight...and have a toast to Solitude. Thanks Mike!
Just finished watching. Well done Mike! This dvd would be worth it for the scenery alone but the tips and big bull footage are just too much. I will say it made me feel like I was there in camp even though he is THE solo bowhunter.
Looking forward to getting the DVD and I think rather than ordering it I'll just take few hours and come down to see you in a couple weeks while your'e down in Berrien Springs for 3 days!
Thoughts during and after viewing this...
Amazing clarity; felt like I could reach out and touch the willows and blueberries. Sparse-but-excellent narration which is perfect for the theme of solitude. Superior job of showing the total experience, and not just the actual pursuit of game. Phenomenal, inspirational scenery. Brush-cracking up-close moose encounters that raise your hair. I could almost feel moose hair and touch antlers after the kill.
For serious diy moose hunters, this is the definitive video to watch. Mike has captured the essence of the Alaska experience. He is a true apex predator, real bowhunter and woodsman. I learned a few other things about him in this film, but I won’t spoil it for anyone. I’m proud to call Mike my friend AND a personal inspiration. We both love the wild and lonely places. Thanks Mike.
I know Mike has it set up for this to premier at a local to him movie theater. I’m bummed out I will be out of town this week and will not be able to see this film on the big screen. It would definitely be worth the 5 hour drive to see this in the theater proper rather than a 65” screen. I will dig up that info and post here.
Here is the info for the big screen showing:
Ordered. Looking forward to watching it. The book was fantastic.
Ordered mine yesterday, I really enjoy Mikes writings and I'm sure this video will be great , as well.
Wife and I made the trip to see the "Big Screen" premier. Made us feel like we were there in camp with Mike. I told him it was no longer a solo hunt. $20, worlds best deal on three fly in Alaska wilderness hunts! Highest recommend
Ordered it and looking forward to watching !
Looking forward to this one!!
Thanks for posting up Mike!
