We’re driving south to Idaho, and it feels like a late season rip instead of the mid-October trip I had envisioned in my head.
BOZEMAN, Mont. – Stone Glacier, a builder of ultralightweight, performance hunting gear designed for backcountry use and a Vista Outdoor Inc. brand, this week announced the release of a new short film, “Over & Out,” which celebrates the spirit of hunting.
Set on opening day of Idaho’s hunting season, “Over & Out,” available now on YouTube, honors the sanctity of the sport, the thrill of the chase, the joy of the shot and the bonds formed during backcountry adventure — with hunting companions and even with the animals themselves.
“Over & Out” depicts the adventure of several hunters on a quest to harvest an elk or deer in Idaho — not too far from Stone Glacier headquarters in Montana’s Big Sky country. The captivating film, shot over several days in the Idaho backcountry, is centered on the hunt, of course, but it also showcases how Stone Glacier’s apparel and gear keep the hunters warm and dry in the cold, snowy conditions that persist for much of the trip.
“It’s mid-October and the highway is covered in ice and wind-blown snow that’s packed on the asphalt,” begins Zack Bought, Content Director, Stone Glacier, in his blog memorializing the adventure. “We’re driving south to Idaho, and it feels like a late season rip instead of the mid-October trip I had envisioned in my head.”
