Ya that sounds good, but we both put in for the Breaks again so it depends on if we draw tags or not.

checked out some of your coyote calling
footage …calls sounded familiar??

Hey guys I’v been really impressed with your video and photography skills. I just need some feed back on some camera equipment, such as tripod and lenses for Nikon SLR camera. I’m getting a great deal on a brand new Nikon D3100 SLR camera for $400 dollars which shoots video. I’m pretty familiar with cameras you usually see on other shows, but personally I like SLRs, However I’m not as familar with the SLR. My question is what kind of tripod do I need and what is the lenses I need to be able to see coyotes about 800 yards. Thanks.
June 6, 2012 at 6:43 pm
Honestly to really film at 800 yards your going to need a 400 or 500mm lens which isn’t going to be cheap. You could also use a teleconverter on a shorter lens but I don’t have any experience with them. As far as filming at that distance you going to need a very nice tripod to keep the footage from being shaky unless you lock your tripod in one place. So you looking at probably anywhere from at least a $1000 to $3000 for a setup that could film that scenario properly. I’d just plan on calling them a lot closer and saving some money. You could also film through a spotting scope but that’s not very practical if your on stand.

Which one of you guys works for Halliburton? I saw your truck over at the PSL shop. I’m a frac engineer, but I live in Sidney.
June 10, 2012 at 8:20 am
That’s actually our good buddy Tyler McCann. He’s a good guy if you ever get a chance to talk to him.

Guys, First off, thanks for a website that shows true hunting on public land. Hunting the way it was meant to be. Hard country utilizing fair chase methods. Your website is wildly entertaining and keeps me depression free in the winter.
I just wanted to commend you guys on your statement and philosophy regarding bear hunting. Sitting over a bait pile, while popular is no way to hunt a bear, or any animal. Thanks for having the guts to post that and good luck the rest of the season. The first and only bear I ever shot was a fair chase hunt on the west side of the Bob Marshall, a gut wrenching hunt and a back breaking pack out. The kind of trip that will be remembered forever. Keep up the Epic work!!!!
June 19, 2012 at 6:36 pm
Thanks Taylor. Glad you feel the same way about bear hunting. Nothing like spot and stalk bear hunting, and we plan to never break away from that trend!
June 20, 2012 at 12:44 pm
Thanks for replying to my previous question about lenses and the tripod. I actually went with the Canon 600D than the Nikon because I already had DSLR Canon Camera from 2 years back and it took the same lenses so I saved my self about $2000 on lenses I also ended up getting a really good deal on $400 only spending $150 on it. Well I just need a little advice on the setting on a camera such as ISO and the aperture for day and the night shots. Thanks.

I am working on creating a website that will be imbedded in our Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks website that is geared towards getting youth outdoors. It will have its own tab – Get Outdoors.
I want to attract youth and your videos are sort of what I am looking for. However, I am looking for shorter footage.
Wondering if you have shorter videos? Please get in touch with me and we can chat more about it.

Take a look at the video my brother and I made on our trip to the Bob Marshall last week. It is only a minute long–make sure to watch the whole thing. Here it is:
July 30, 2012 at 1:42 pm
Couldn’t watch the video. Try another link maybe.
August 5, 2012 at 8:34 pm
Hey guys I see that you use the d7000 and was just wondering what you think of the d5100. I’m looking for something comparable to the d7000 just not wantin to dish out that much cash to get set up. How weather proof are these cameras? Thanks for the insight.

Hi Montana Wild Im from Canada and I am going on a trip to Montana with my family and would love to do some fishing. I would love to know some nice spots. I saw your contrast fly fishing video, and would love to know what stream that was/river? PS: great video!!! I also commented on the video my username is Inger132.

August 13, 2012 at 9:14 am
Thanks Mike. We’ll have to check it out.
August 13, 2012 at 8:02 pm
Hey guys, loving the posts. Some of the water you guys have been fishing looks like something I have could only dream of. I live in Montana, why the heck have I not seen places like that!! Look forward to seeing what the future has for you guys.
August 22, 2012 at 9:41 am
Thanks chris! Set some time aside and get out there and explore!!

I am looking for someone to go Bow Elk Hunting with in the next week. Need a partner or group. For my significant other who is very rugged and can more than pull his weight. Do you guys know anyone or have any suggestions? He is an excellent bow hunter.
September 2, 2012 at 5:57 pm
Has his tag for the Missouri breaks.
September 2, 2012 at 5:58 pm
Were pretty busy with filming but have him contact us through our contact page and we’ll see if we can help him.

Hey fellas, awesome videos and blog!! I started bow and gun hunting whitetails in the midwest when I was 12 years old. I was fortunate enough to learn how to hunt from my father and uncle and after over a decade of hunting I still feel like I have much to learn when it comes to scouting and hunting whitetails from a tree stand. Hunting elk in montana looks to be much different than hunting whitetail in the midwest and seems to present many different challenges. You guys seem to be pretty darn good hunters after just a few years of hunting and I am sure after seeing how hard you guys hunt that you have learned a ton from previous experiences/trial and error but I was just curious if you also do a lot of reading to learn different ways to hunt that may help you in the field? The footage in your videos is great and very well put together and it really shows your passion/appreciation for hunting! In my opinion your videos blow those outdoor channel tv shows out of the water! Keep up the good work!
October 6, 2012 at 11:21 am
Thanks Midwest Hunter. Basically we did a lot of research online and reading/watching anything we could. The greatest way to learn is to get out and hunt. Read some elk hunting magazines to learn more about different tactics.
October 10, 2012 at 1:36 pm
Just wondering what your camera set up is? Do you have a fluid head? What lens? Also in some of your videos you pan side to side or front to back completely steady…. Is that something you do with editing or what?
October 29, 2012 at 2:07 pm
We run a manfrotto head along with our DSLR. Tripod/fluid head are extremely important, but prepared for the price tag. Sometimes we will take out and use a Konova slider.
October 29, 2012 at 3:20 pm
I don’t suppose you could tell us when your 2012 archery elk vids are going to come out…
January 20, 2013 at 4:44 pm
Recently found your website. Nice work, and great photos. You all have created some amazing videos.
We have put together something kind of similar. Mostly just for fun and trying to get more people out there and enjoying Montana’s wilderness. Check out our website: www. montanahunting.org.
We are out in Helena, if your ever out here.

I want to show my appreciation for what you guys do! I found your website/videos a couple months ago and you have really been my inspiration to seriously start bow hunting next fall. I shot my first whitetail with a bow this past december, a doe, in northern Wisconsin, only weeks after watching your videos. It was my first real bow season, and it took me two weeks to finally bag her. It was one of the greatest feelings in the world! I haven’t been able to bow hunt due to sports, I have been playing college football the past four years, and am extremely eager to begin a new hobby that I can enjoy the rest of my life.
I love the challenge and pureness of bow hunting. I have hunted whitetail during gun season since I was 12 and the rewards of filling your gun tag are not even close to that of filling your archery tag.
I plan on buying a Bear bow this spring to get ready for next fall and the adventures I will have.
Thanks again for all you do. You guys are the best! Love your trout fishing videos too. Can’t wait for Wisconsin’s opener this spring!
February 13, 2013 at 2:41 pm
Great to hear Tyler! Email us your address @ email@example.com and I’ll ship out a montana wild decal if you would like one. Thanks for the support!
February 13, 2013 at 2:54 pm
Thanks guys! That would be awesome!
