Wild Sheep Foundation Joins HFT!

It’s been many months in the making, and we couldn’t be more excited to announce that the Wild Sheep Foundation has officially partnered with the HFT to bring North America the best hunting film tour in the industry!  Growing up in the shadows of the Rockies in Alberta, Canada and having the good fortune to have the opportunity to bowhunt bighorns this organization is near and dear to my heart.  I have witnessed first hand the tremendous conservation initiatives and…

Mountain Magic

It’s that time of year. The thermometer bounces between -30 and -10 for the umpteenth month in a row, seasonal affective disorder and a lack of vitamin D threaten our sanity as the winter solstice drags on. Living north of the 49th parallel leaves us limited options, you either embrace old man winter and enjoy it or hunker down and be miserable. I for one choose the former, and there are a few options to ward off the winter blues.…

HFT – Bronzed

The initial discussion translated into this conceptual drawing. One of the most enjoyable & exciting elements for me personally throughout the management of the Hunting Film Tour is the travel and all of the interesting people you meet along the way.  An artist I recently discovered named Tanner Billis out of Montana is one such individual.  Tanner and his father are the owners of a studio called Billis Fine Art (www.billisfineart.net) that specialize in Bronze artworks. I have had an…

A Booner for Ben

I have lived in a land my whole life where dreams can become reality if your most treasured experience is stalking up to a bedded mule deer buck with horns so large you can only describe them as gothic.  My eyes have seen things that make my heart race like a drum, my hands and knees shake uncontrollably, and things that I don’t even believe I’m witnessing are actual real life events.   I have experienced things very few people on…

Umingmak & Tea

When the imagination conjures up images of the Arctic, the legendary Inukshuk instantly comes to mind!  There is no better way to break up the daily routine than a dose of exotic travel mixed with some bowhunting adventure! It had haunted my thoughts for years, such a far away land filled with mystery and steeped in tradition.  Victoria Island, NWT and the prehistoric creatures, known to the local Inuit as Umingmak (Muskox), provide an amazing bowhunting adventure.  As my hunting…

HFT Boise – The Egyptian

After a visit to Ketchum, ID with Ryan Callaghan who is one of the most respected Elk hunters in the Northwest, we loaded up our rig and hit the highway headed for Boise, ID. We had one night in Boise to scour the town and run a little Hunting Film Tour street team, inviting locals that haven’t heard about our show. The Boise landmark – Egyptian Theater Marqee Show time at the Egyptian Theater kicked off on time promptly at…

HFT Missoula – The Wilma

    After Bozeman we made our way to Missoula. With a day to spare we enjoyed an unbelievable time spent fishing the Blackfoot river with the HFT Crew. The following day was the much anticipated show at the historic Wilma Theater on the river in downtown Missoula.     The Wilma show inspired lots of hooting and hollering from a terrific crowd. Big shout out to Pheasants Forever and Backcountry Hunters & Anglers, both who raffled off .22 rimfire…
