Listen to Donnie Vincent and Cory Herendeen give an expanded look at Adak, Alaska and the making of the film.
In November of 2019, explorer and hunter Donnie Vincent traveled to Adak Island, Alaska. Located at the westernmost end in the Aleutian chain, Adak is wilderness with the exception of a now-abandoned naval base that once housed more than 6,000 people. Winds of Adak chronicles Donnie’s exploration of the island, a hauntingly desolate abandoned military outpost and three unique hunts—caribou, ptarmigan and sea ducks—as the unforgiving elements, the terrain and the Bering Sea test both man and equipment.
Driven by nature, Donnie has consistently let the outdoors and his passion for adventure be the compass for his life. Deep in the heart of the wildest of terrain is where Donnie thrives.
The premier example of explorer, biologist, conservationist, and sportsman, Donnie takes a wider view of the topics he tackles while in the field, because to him, it is all a story worth telling. By doing so, Donnie empowers us to open our minds to the bigger picture and inspires us to find our own adventures.
