I realize that the reason the TV and hunting shows don't spend much time showing the scouting process is because it's probably a little boring. But is there something you'd want to see in a more educational elk and mule deer scouting video that would hopefully still have some entertainment value?
Is there something that generally isn't well illustrated or articulated that could be done either with video or a series of stills and some voice over?
The basic outline of the video will be in four parts and will encompass unit selection, remote scouting, on the ground scouting and hopefully some hunting success if we do our part right. In other words: How did we select this unit? How did we narrow down our focus within the unit? What are we looking for when we set foot on the ground in the hunting area to validate, disprove or disregard a specific drainage or region of a unit to hunt in? And finally, can we put it all together, culminating in a successful hunt?
I realize that those looking for something informative, won't expect quite the same amount of killing and action as with your run-of-the-mill hunting videos, but how would you still make it entertaining? I don't want to put together a range plant ID video, coupled with some live animal shots, but I do want to cover some good, in-depth habitat stuff that you probably haven't seen before.
