Episode 1: The Journey Begins

Hi! I’m Crystal Egli, a videographer for Colorado Parks and Wildlife. 

I spent the last year and a half documenting my first big game hunt from start to finish. The result…? This 16 part video series about big game hunting from a true novice perspective.

 Before I started working for Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW), I had no resources or connections to hunting. With lots of help and support from my coworkers and friends at CPW, I finally decided to give it a try. And because I’m a videographer I just had to film the whole thing, no matter what happened. Join me as I learn the steps necessary to hunt big game in Colorado, and stay tuned every Monday to see what happens. Wish me luck!
