60th Parallel consists of two Alaskans whose passion for extreme hunting and the outdoors is matched only by their passion for sharing their experiences with others.
"For many hunters, a true backcountry hunt for big game is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, with memories they will treasure for the rest of their lives. Living in Alaska as we do, we consider themselves honored. For us, EVERY hunt is that hunt. Instead of roads and trails we travel rivers and ridgelines. Instead of hopping in a truck, we often find ourselves in a Supercub. We feel that life is too precious to spend it doing anything but what we love and experiencing it with those we care about, so we strive to live out our dreams every day." -John Whipple
Realizing what a blessing it is to have access to such experiences they have felt compelled to share their adventures through film with the hope that others will be inspired to follow their dreams, get out and enjoy the outdoors, challenge themselves both mentally and physically, and share in all these experiences with their friends and families.
