    Default Float Hunting How-To Series (Outdoors Directory's new YouTube channel!)

    We're going to build up our educational library here on Outdoors Directory with some how-to video materials. Here's one of the first ones we did just a couple of weeks ago. I'm interested in your feedback in terms of length and content.



    There are a lot of different ways we can go with this. I'm sure it's not perfect, but it might help some folks.

    Here's another one we did on oar selection. Pretty basic stuff I know, but we're trying to target some of the newer float hunters out there who may not be aware of these details. We're interested in your feedback!



    Thanks for watching!

    Thanks!

    Thumbs up

    Very professionally done!

    And I love the effect you added at the intro where your (moose) logo slams down and the dust flies up. Nice effect.

    Terrific stuff: valuable information in the spoken and unspoken tips (gloves, waders, black headnets), a hint of how appealing a float can be when the water's calm and the weather fine... and just the right props in those full game bags. Excellent job. Congratulations, Mike!
    PS- your cameraman does very steady work.

    I wouldn't know about that, except I do know that I watched the videos from post numbers 1,2,& 3 in this thread without paying him even a nickel. And that he'll provide just about anyone an account on this forum for free.

    OK, that was fun. But seriously, .

    you are making it too easy for the cheechacho to have a safe and sucessful adventure.... less all the adventure of losing all your gear , and getting hurt etc..
    keep making these videos and they wont have any fodder for the show,, ( I should have died )
    Great job mike
