I am an avid turkey hunter, take kids and adults during the season, and was considering filming hunts on a small scale level. I guided at the Old West Invitational Turkey Shoot this year in Hulett Wyoming which I understand you attended but did not get a chance to meet you. Although I enjoy the sport, almost to a fault, I know very little about cameras, editing, or producing a film even on a small scale. What type of cameras, how many do you use, and the software for editing films? How did you break into the outdoor world on such a large scale? If the answer is complex I would enjoy exchanging email addresses and talking turkey hunting a the outdoor industry with you. Maybe we could meet up next year a the OWITS, it was such a great event and I had a blast chasing those Merriam’s as I always do.
Christopher, I’m surprised we didn’t run into each other at the shoot. I was there for most of it but left early due to work. Our filming setup for turkey hunting consists of one main camera, a DSLR, and multiple go pros. The main camera we are using now is the Sony Z-150. We film 90% of the footage off of it including the turkey kills. We use DSLR’s to shoot some beauty footage and cutaways. They are also nice for taking pictures during the hunt. The Go Pros are used a 2nd angle cameras which run during the actual hunt. Sometimes we can set these up where we can capture the hunter and turkey in the same frame. Good luck! Aaron (6-26-17)
