I think you need to do more of these it looks to be a big hit. I browsed though your channel and the original video of the hunt was posted 4 years ago, and has 165k views. The recap video is a week old with 95k views.I didn't think people would have any interest in this, but given the early results of this episode I should listen to the crew.
Me too. Testimony to a normally calm, yet pissed off, Finlander finally reaching his breaking point.
Hey Randy I could not help but notice the three stacks of yeti coolers in the garage, have you officially changed to having yeti as your cooler sponsor? This video was hilarious by the way. Especially the cameraman using all of the satellite phone minutes talking to his girlfriend, I had a buddy like that haven’t travelled with him since. Thanks for all the great content.
I laughed my butt off watching this. It reminds me of my own failed hunts. Some times you just can't buy good luck! Helps to put it in perspective that some times everything works against you and you eat tag soup.
I'd enjoy watching more of them.
The next shop story is about a hunt that went so bad, it didn't even make TV. New Mexico archery elk, 2011.
I almost died of the dysentery thanks to a camera guy who quit the night before season opened, which caused me to lose three of the six days of the hunt while waiting for a replacement camera guy, which is why I was scouting the opening morning instead of shooting the big bull I called in, which somehow resulted in me getting flat tire when I got back to the traihead, which caused me to go to town to get the tired fixed, which allowed me enough time to eat some authentic New Mexico 5-alarm chili while my tire was under repair, which resulted in a week of the dysentery and almost cost me the entire season while my GI tract tried to recover from authentic 5-alarm New Mexico chili.
Had the camera guy not wussed out, the chain of events above would not have happened. I would have hopefully killed a bull in that six-day hunt.
I felt like I had "ridden bareback on a belt sander" after having to deal with the GI issues from that chili. I couldn't walk, couldn't drive, couldn't sleep, couldn't blow a diaphragm call, couldn't do much of anything.
This episode falls close to the category of "Too much information," but we've all been there with some bad stomach problem that had lasting implications. So, I figured the audience could relate.
