Opening Weekend Elk 2012- Sage Buck Productions
Well, the time has finally come, elk are starting to bugle, and our elk decoys are helping hunters get their first elk encounters of 2012.
Sage Buck Productions did a 6 mile backpack hunt this weekend, and boy did they get into the elk, as you can see from the video.
I got involved with Sage Buck Productions when I saw their trailer on Facebook in 2010, I was very impressed by their videography and production. After pinging back and forth with John Tolbert from Sage Buck via Facebook messaging, it became evident that he was also impressed with the concept and design of the SLIP System, and we became Sponsors for them.
When I got on the phone, and talked with John Tolbert, I found out that even though he lives in Idaho, he grew up here in Northern California, just a few miles away from us. John has become a good friend, and I was fortunate to meet him in person here in Redding, CA several months ago. John is the real deal, a Family man who works hard, and hunts whenever he gets the chance. Most of the Sage Buck hunts are DIY on Public Land, which was another reason I really wanted to sponsor them. They work very hard for the video they get, and it shows in their productions. John and his crew use Elk Mountain Gear for filming, decoying, hiking, and concealment. And of course, to keep the rain off if need be.
As John states in the video, they are just getting started. With the opener behind them, they have a great starting point to move back in to the Idaho backcountry, and put an elk or two on the ground. We will be eagerly awaiting the Season finale from Sage Buck Productions.
You can see many of Sage Buck Productions’ videos on their main website, or on their YouTube Channel. Their videos are all for public viewing, without commercial obligation to the viewers. Their motto “As Real as it Gets” becomes very apparent when you watch their videos; this is DIY hunting at its best. Congrats to these hard working boys, and we will be looking forward to many more videos to come
