August 16th will find me in Northern New Mexico hunting black bear with my brother in law as well as two gentlemen from the World Hunting Club. The world hunting club will actually be professionally filming this hunt as I try to take a respectful sized bear with my .58 caliber CVA Hawken that I pieced together almost two years ago.
This hunt will be a Do it yourself hunt, no guides, no baiting, no dogs, just lots of hiking, spot/stalk and watching waterholes under the blistering New Mexico sun!
New Mexico is currently under a fire ban at the moment so that leaves it all up to me to film little sections of the video with me casting my round balls over an open camp fire. Other segments will include me lubing my own patches, weighing the round balls that I just cast, swabbing the bore with TOW and preparing my rifle for the hunt.
If YOU would like to see something specific or give me some tips, Let me know!
I want to do this filmed hunt RIGHT. Not the silly lame rear end way that we have to see things on TV today.
Hunting with a traditional patched round ball muzzle loader,has always been one of my passions, and with me being able to film it cleanly, I want to make sure those watching it, get to voice some of their opinions on area's that I may over look. Scenery will NOT be left out, that's for darn sure!
Long speaking sessions will also try to be limited, I am a shut up and hunt style hunter, not a sit in front of the camera and talk your ear off, hunter.
You'll get to see my equipment close up and see how it's used and me HOPEFULLY putting it to use!
Speak up guys and girls! I want your views and opinions and tips on getting this done RIGHT!
