Since 2004 I have teamed with Gene and Barry Wensel along with my brothers David and Mark Mitten to promote bowhunting through the creation of films (Primal Dreams and Essential Encounters) and books (One with the Wilderness).
I am still part of Brothers of the Bow, but as a Bowsite Sponsor I am attempting to reach additional people through my own Herd Bull Productions where I originally published ' "One with the Wilderness." Sometime this May I plan to release a new full length film called "Chasing Solitude – Passions of a Solo Moose Hunter,” where I take the viewer along to three mountain ranges in Alaska over three hunting seasons in search for moose. I hope to offer the film in DVD video and Blu-ray disc. I have attached the self-filmed hunt trailer that you can view on my website and on my Herd Bull Productions YouTube channel. Thank you, Mike
Looking forward to that Mike and I still relive the May 2009 fly-in bear hunt and fishing trip we did with Monty where you gave me the autographed copy of your great book! Primal Dreams is also fantastic and I would bet your upcoming stuff will be the same. Be well man---Mike S!
TopGun- I'm not sure why the trailer link would not play for you, but I too am getting error when I click on my banner at the top. Pat just activated the account a few days ago. I will attach a link to Herd Bull Productions here. And yes I went back up with Monty in the fall and took a bear and caught some nice northern pike. Mike
Brotsky- Thanks for your help. Not sure if you just copy and pasted the link in the text portion or what. Thank you all for your interest in the feature film. My son Tim did the editing of the film which demands a lot of time and a vision. He left a lot of scenes in that I might have edited or refined, but leaving them in gives more truth to the solo filmed hunt experience. Speaking of full disclosure, this film was self-funded by me and I took on no sponsors. However, I have been a Sitka Gear Athlete/Pro-staff member since 2007, and there are some endorsements in the form of products or equipment I use as well as acknowledgements of appreciation in the final credits. I can hardly wait to take you along with me on this grand adventure showcasing Alaska's allure. Mike
I plan to show my feature film in a local theater in Antioch, Illinois on Thursday, June 7th. Get tickets in advance, a free popcorn and a drink with each advance ticket. Thanks for your interest. Mike
