Why does SHP require 5 hunts prior to adding a new team member?
We make our living producing hunting videos. We need team members who are dedicated to their craft. By requiring a minimum of 5 filmed hunts, we are able to build a hunting team that will produce quality footage in a consistent manner. We are not interested in hunters only wanting to be filmed. We want good camera operators willing to make the sacrifices needed to capture quality video.

Does SHP use Guide Services?
No. All of the hunts featured on our videos and TV program are self-guided, fair chase hunts.
Does SHP hunt behind a fence?
NEVER! We do not consider shooting a caged animal as hunting in any way, shape or form. PERIOD! We believe in hunting game animals on their terms, not ours. We are not interested in convenience when hunting. We earn our kills.
How many days does SHP hunt in a given season?
We hunt 70-90 days per archery season in Ohio to capture the footage used in our videos. We hunt in the state with the LOWEST archery hunter success rate in the nation. We work hard for every second of footage we capture.
Does SHP provide guide services?
No. We are a production company. We do not provide guide services.
What makes SHP videos different from other hunting videos?
We feel we are different because the average hunter can relate to us. We are not hunting on managed game farms or high-dollar ranches. We hack it out just like you. We do all our own scouting, observing, stand hanging, hunting, etc. For us, hunting is a process. It is a year-round commitment. We also are not afraid to laugh at ourselves. We do not claim to be professional hunters. Do they even exist? We dont think so. Were just a bunch of goof-balls trying to take a nice deer every season. Most of all, we try to have FUN!
The Slunger Hollow Team has been producing Whitetail hunting DVDs for nearly two decades.
Over the years, we’ve found that it can be hard to maintain the level of commitment and dedication it takes to capture quality hunts on camera. It’s not for everyone. But the memories captured are worth their weight in gold.
Some new faces and young hunters have breathed life back into SHP and we are so happy for it!
Come join us for some close-range encounters with big Ohio bucks.
Spend some time in Slunger Hollow... You’ll be glad you did!
