Nov. 16, 2006 – WILLOW, ALASKA — A new calendar for 2007 features three things men love most — fishing, hunting and beautiful women.
“There are tons of different magazines and television shows featuring male hunters and fishermen. We figured we would spice it up a bit by using females,” said Vicki Priebe, vice-president for Wild Honey Productions, based in Willow, Alaska. “It is a 12-month calendar, and there is a gorgeous girl for each month.”
The calendar — for sale exclusively from the manufacturer on the Wild Honey Web site at http://www.wildhoneycalendar.com — also features facts about various fish and game animals, recipes, hunting and fishing tips, moon phases, holidays and fishing records.
The photos in the calendar were shot on location in Alaska and Minnesota.
“Getting the photos was a challenge. Some of our shoots were in the warm weather, but a lot of them were in the cold, so the models had to warm up between takes,” said Priebe. “The weather didn’t like to cooperate – it was usually too windy, too snowy, too cold, too sunny or too cloudy. But our models are all professional and they didn’t let the elements get in the way of a great photograph.”
It also was challenging getting the game animals.
“Have you ever gone out on a day fishing, knowing you had to catch a fish. They never bite when you have to have them for a shoot. Somehow, luck was on our side and we were able to get all the game animals in the calendar. But it was difficult. It is a great thing we love hunting and fishing so much or it would have driven us crazy,” Priebe continued.
The 12-month calendar for 2007 is ready to purchase now at www.wildhoneycalendar.com. The price is $12.91 each. A “Making of the Wild Honey Calendar” DVD is available via the Web site. It was released at the beginning of November.
