Benchmark

A standard by which something can be measured or judged.

 

Benchmark Outdoors is far more than a Production Company or a Film Team… Benchmark is a Brotherhood compromised of everyday working people, ordinary blue collar folks with an Extra-Ordinary drive to hunt hard, hunt ethically and pursue god’s creatures the hard way, DIY, on over pressured public land. It’s no secret that hunting is becoming more commercialized every day, that’s not us; we are a young group of hunters with an old school foundation. We don’t own any private ranches, pay for crazy hunting leases or beg for access to private lands. Nope, that’s just not our style! So, in the fall of 2013 Jearred Foruria put his lifelong plan into effect and Benchmark was born. After countless hours interviewing potential Team members, the final selections were made and the team was established; the Benchmark had been set.

Our mission is simple: Hunt hard, film our adventures and share our experiences with you. Our confidence in each other, our capabilities and our tenacious approach to hunting and video production will shed a fresh perspective on Outdoor Video Production. We are fans of the short film movement and use this avenue to share our experiences with all of you.

We thank you for the support and look forward to seeing you in the field! Make sure to check out our sponsors to get your hands on the gear Team Benchmark relies on. As always we appreciate and welcome any feedback. Hunt Hard, Hunt Ethically and remember, we all are reaching for the Benchmark.

The history of the bow and arrow is the history of mankind.

Fred Bear.
