Eastman’s Backcountry Bulls

As I am getting ready for my early season archery elk hunting trip in the rocky mountains of south east British Columbia, I am brushing up on calling and elk hunting by practicing and watching some elk hunting videos.

I popped in Backcountry bulls from Eastman’s tonight and liked the footage of the horseback hunting camp. Its neet to see hunting in this style as it is a rare occurance nowadays. They featured outfitter of Jackson Hole Wyoming William Flemming. There were alot of big bulls and good elk footage on the DVD along with some calling tips.

I felt it was a decent flick but was not the best elk hunting video I have ever seen. I do appreciate the Eastman philosophy of "no fences here" and appreciate there willingness to venture into very remote areas of Wyoming.

Overall I give the DVD a 3/5
