If only all hunting videos were made like Primal Dreams we would not have to defend our right to hunt. A video that should be in every hunter's collection.

Speaking of which....I couldn't find any credit for the soundtrack on the DVD or the case.  Is that music available on a disc?

Ah Biggie, you're too easy.  :)  

But I agree. It does make one want to cry, both in a good way and a sad way. Good way because it shows better than any other film I've seen what the bowhunting experience is to many of us. It also shows how far removed main stream bowhunting (all hunting really) has drifted away from what really is important, which is sad.

Biggie, are you exchanging your "pass the Mayo" for "pass the tissues".   :bigsmyl:

Beyond Adrenaline and Primal Dreams are completely different.  The first is more like your traditional hunting video with episodes and kills.  The griz charge is worth the price of it.

Primal Dreams serves a different purpose.

Primal Dreams: I watch the September elk chapter probably once a week and will be watching it again right before leaving for elk camp next Wednesday afternoon. Nothing puts me in a better frame of mind than that video. I have nothing against kill shots on video but with how well that video is done, they're just not needed. Too cool.

I have watched and re-watched my copy of Primal Dreams trying to make myself like it. I am just not there yet; maybe I am the only one. I am still a bit mad at myself for succumbing to the hype.

I Thank all who were involved in making that dvd. It does the soul good and it's good medicine everytime I watch it.If you don't have it do youself a favor and get it and invite some close friends over, grab some popcorn ( may I suggest 10 bags ) and sit back for two full breathtaking hours of good clean viewing. Thanks Guys for a job well done !!!! God Bless ! Keefers <")))><    :campfire:

Primal Dreams  is a great video, but I like the parts best with the hunters in it. I didn't care too much for watching the deer in the food plots--not my thing. I hunt in the deep woods. All in all it is pretty good.

Thanks for your opinion guys. We know that videos are not for everyone, and yes we did try to make PD a little different. Your comments are very helpful if we make another one.

Some folks have asked us about Bart Schleyer (the friend we dedicated the film to). You can read about Bart in the Aug/Sept and Oct/Nov issues of TBM.
 Thanks again,
Mike

I thought it was very enjoyable. The scenery was great and the messages from Gene Wensel's narration were right on. I would have liked to have seen a little more actual hunting though. It is not often that one gets to see the Wensel's or other archery legends hunt. I hope they will make a "hunting video" sometime soon that will share not only their philosophy, but also their strategy with us.

If we make another one???????

I was kinda' hoping you were at least 90% finished with the sequel.  :)  

Yes, PD was different from the run of the mill hunting video, but where is it written that a hunting video cannot be made with taste, class, quality videography, and a strong, meaningful message? I mean really, just how many times does one need to view a cameraman and a hunter  sitting in a tree whispering to each other before, during, and after a shot. They all start looking alike after about the third one.

Great job with PD guys.

Tom    You are right, we are working on another one.... the brothers are never in a hurry. Ha! I guess Barry tore a tendon and may miss early season scouting and filming, but he should be OK.

I bought a copy because I heard that it was beautiful and non-hunters would enjoy it -a good family video that might even help introduce people to the beauty in hunting.

My wife and I watched it -she is a non-hunter -and the film was beautiful in places. She especially enjoyed watching the turkeys -until the arrows started to fly. I had to admit it was pretty gruesome. The juxtaposition between wild turkeys doing their thing in the utter silence of the woods, then one after another, about a dozen turkeys being skewered on film was hard to watch, and my wife left the room.

I know hunting videos are an acquired taste, but I think in general kill scenes should be limited, and chosen with some care.

The process of the hunt is what brings us out there. The crescsendo may be the shot, but the kill itself is violent, and non-hunters are sensitive, and I hope most hunters are not entirely insensitive, to that fact.

PD was good and attempted to capture many of the reasons we spend such long hours in the woods. It succeeds in many places. But the number of turkey kills in succession killed it for my
wife. A single kill and Barry carrying out that Tom, and maybe a game dinner with family and friends, with recounts of the hunt, would have been much more effective, and more akin to most hunters experience.
