After the great season that the Bowhunting.com staff had last fall, and with the popularity of our online bowhunting videos and bowhunting gear reviews, we decided that an upgrade to our filming "studio" was in order. So several weeks ago we tore apart was used to be Todd Graf's office and completely remodeled the room into our video/photo studio, which has already proven quite handy.
Here we see Coon Creek Hunt Club manager and general handyman Mark "Cupcake" Oakley putting up the cedar boards in our new photo/video studio.
After the room was completed, or pretty close to it, we were able to give it our very first test run with a great interview of our buddy Richie Music who found a monsterous shed antler this spring. If you missed that video and blog entry, you can check them out here.

Once our room was completed and all of our mounts, lights, and props were moved back in place we finalized the last of the interviews for our Bowhunting.com DVD which should be out this summer. This DVD is going to feature some great bowhunts that the bowhunting.com staff and some of our friends have collected over the past two seasons. This includes Todd's 192" giant that he harvested this fall and of course my spectacular miss from this fall. So far the production is coming together great and we're looking forward to showing you all the final product in a few months.

Yours truly giving an interview for our Bowhunting.com DVD. If I look tired in the DVD it's because I was. It was almost 10:30 by the time we finished!
We'll keep you all updated on the progress of our DVD as the official release date is firmed up. So make sure you keep checking back for updates and new videos. We will be adding 2-3 new videos per month from now until the season starts, with weekly updates once October 1st rolls around!
