The outdoor television series known as The Best of the West has been on air since 2003 and the focus of the program is long range hunting big game in the Rocky Mountains.  The production crew at Best of the West Productions strive to present an exciting cinematic version that immerses the viewer in the mountainous outdoor experience.  Being all too aware that hunters want to see big game hit the ground, it's also been the goal to bring the entire "package" of the journey, knowing full well that even an unsuccessful hunt is never a waste of time.  The times spent with family and friends in the outdoors is a rejuvenating experience to the very depths of the soul.
