Get Inspired: A Veteran Tests Hunting Limits in the Alaskan Alpine


An Iraq veteran pushes his personal private boundaries and shares his journey with us in this quick film by SOG Specialty Knives &amp Tools.

Omar “Crispy” Avila is a beloved figure in the planet of inspirational humans. His life and service as a U.S. Marine is a story worth reading in its entirety, and I do not want to do it any sense of injustice. He pushed via wartime injuries to come to be a Paralympic powerlifter, an avid bowhunter, and a motivational speaker.

For this hunt, Crispy partnered with the group at SOG and Alaska Coastal Outfitters. Once collectively, they headed to Alaska’s Tongass National Forest in pursuit of black-tailed deer.

It is my preferred hunting film I’ve noticed hence far in 2019. The story speaks for itself. Prepare to be moved and motivated.
