- As one of the owners, and hunting consultants at GotHunts.com, Russ Meyer has been given the opportunity to bowhunt many amazing locations. Truth be told, the places closest to his heart are the Idaho ridge lines and canyons where he’s left miles of boot rubber, sweat and tears. Sharing those places with his sons Jess and Luke was always a dream he knew would someday come true, and in October 2013, one of those dreams became reality.
Passing along the tradition of hunting is something all of us should take seriously, because if we don’t, who will? As hunters, most would likely agree, sharing in the experience of your child taking his or her first buck is a moment that will never be forgotten, and talked about for years to come. Russ and Jess packed into the backcountry sharing that moment, and were lucky enough to capture it on film. To top off the season, two weeks later, Russ took his bow into the same area for his hunt. As fate would have it, Russ was given an opportunity in the exact location and finished his season taking photos of his deer on the same rock as Jess’ buck days earlier.
This film was first aired on the Full Draw Film Tour.
