If you’ve followed the the Rok Blog for a while, you know I like to share the adventures of other successful hunters on here. Besides entertaining, I think studying other hunters can help you be more successful.
If you’ve ever hunted Alaska or longed to, then you need to meet my friend Billy Molls. Billy is a top Alaskan guide, author and videographer. Billy grew up in Wisconsin with a dream to guide on The Last Frontier. He made that dream come true and has now been guiding in Alaska for 17 years (the dude has spent six years of his life in a tent!) Billy recently placed in the top 10 at the Outdoor Film Festival and Tour for his short film “Spirit of a Mountain Man”. I’ve also reviewed his book and DVDs on the Rok Blog here
Billy is back with his latest release, “Hunt for the Unknown.” This hunt takes place in August of 2013. Billy hosts his own father and family friend Greg “Gus” Quade for an Alaskan Barren Ground Caribou hunt. Billy’s movies are never short on action, but this one takes a slower path than usual. Billy frames the movie with background about his family, his roots, and how he came to Alaska. You’ll appreciate his style; here’s a short sample.
The next quick video introduces what’s to come. If you like Super Cubs and flying as much as I do, you’ll love the flight to camp and prescouting their area. The pilot sets Billy down on a virgin “airstrip” to set up camp and await his father and Gus while the 24-hour no-fly rule expires.
Billy and his dad have talked about making this hunt for years. They decided to hunt with Billy’s Grandfather’s old 303 Savage rifle with open sights that he purchased in 1922. While this puts them at a huge disadvantage in the wide-open country, (they’re called Barren Ground Caribou for a reason,) it also sets the stage for one of the most exciting kill shots I’ve ever seen.
The video is filled with all-things-Alaska from the Super Cubs, to abundant game, to camp-robbing bears, to August snowstorms and more of what makes Alaska truly wild. You’ll also see First Lite gear and Stone Glacier Packs in action. You will thoroughly enjoy this DVD.
