Do-it-yourself high mountain big game hunting in “Chasing Velvet” — a new film coming to the Full Draw Film Tour.
From the Full Draw Film Tour:
“Bow hunting velvet bucks in the mountains was just a dream when we first picked up a bow. We read all the books and magazines and watched all the videos of the “pros” taking massive bucks. After many unsuccessful seasons and learning from countless mistakes, this year, Jerad and Adam had tags in their pockets looking for another chance. We had planned this hunt years in advance, playing the point game across the western states. We knew filling a tag was a long shot. Nothing was easy about the place we were going. The hike in seemed to go on forever, increasing hunting pressure, and the unforgiving terrain did not lend itself to guaranteeing a notched tag. With the odds stacked against us we were able to glass up a good buck by opening day. Over the course of the week, we grew a love-hate relationship with that deer. A couple close stalks to get in bow range and a missed shot, this buck seemed to have us figured out. With only a day left in the hunt, we were blessed with one more opportunity. Tired, sore, and worn out we decided to give it one last go. We said a prayer and hoped for the best but struggled to stay positive. God is good and we were able to notch a tag on a velvet buck we had been chasing all week.”
