In this podcast we welcome Cliff Hockett, David Richter & Beau Reber of Antler Athlete. Cliff, David & Beau talk about their new venture into making hunting films and partnering with Antler Athlete to produce the best content possible. Their first venture as filmmakers was submitting a film to the Full Draw Film tour and it was selected as a top 10 contestant to be featured in the 2018 tour. They talk about the process of learning the technical side of filming, the learning curve it takes to be able to hunt & film at the same time and what type of films they are hoping to produce. We also discuss Cliff's company 4F Calls where he is making some unique custom elk calls out of elk horn. We talk about what makes these calls unique and why Cliff believes they have helped him call in bulls in situations where other calls would not have worked.
