ABOUT WORLD WENT DARK OUTDOORS
It was a crisp November morning, the grunting and snapping of twigs in the pre-dawn darkness told of the rut crazed bucks in the area. Crunching leaves gave away his approach, the arrow was off and when he crashed, the words, “his world just went dark” were uttered. World Went Dark Outdoors was born. That was back in 2007 and since then, we have expanded our business and direction. We have added pro-staffers, great friends if you will, to grow WWDO along with us. Todd Davis and “The Esterly Boys”, Jack and Carl Esterly are vital parts of this organization.
We film all our hunts, which are 100% fair chase, adrenaline pumping, fast paced action hunts. Most are with our bows but occasionally you will see a gun. We pride ourselves in bringing the viewer into our world, showing them the up close and personal encounters we experience. The viewers will feel as though they are part of the hunt. We are as real as real gets, just some average guys living a dream. We capture everything involved in the hunt from the successes to the failures and everything in between. We are the reality for most working class hunters. Whether its a deer hunt, coon hunt, turkey hunt, or something else, we will bring the action to you!! You will feel like you’re there with us. It’s that close, and it’s that personal!! WWDO style!
