Welcome to turkey call practice with Scott Ellis of Mouth Call Magic. We wanted to throw together a way for you to practice your turkey calling, along side a guide to help you get the right rhythm and tone. So grab your favorite turkey reed and try and mimic the sounds and rhythm of Scott as he calls.
Today, Ryan Carter of DC Outfitters in Southern Utah joins me to chat about elk hunting, chasing the biggest bull on the mountain, and understanding the difference in how to do so effectively. We talk about elk behavior, patterns, movement, and more. We also chat a little bit about whats going on with the Western Hunt Expo scandal and his thoughts on that as a local Utah elk hunter.
Zach Owens, of Beyond The Backcountry, joins me on the podcast this week to talk a wide variety of hunting topics. We had a blast talking about hunting motivation, fitness, and the difference between rifle hunting and bow hunting. We also chat about hunting with your significant other and some advice for how to approach that as well. Zach is a stand up guy with a great sense of humor and some awesome advice for hunters. We also talk about Idaho wolf hunting and some of the struggles Zach has faced finding an elusive wolf. All in all, we had a blast talking about hunting, and nothing gets me more pumped to head out to the mountains like chatting about it with good friends. Be sure to check out Zach Owens @beyond_the_backcountry on Instagram and let him know what you thought of the show.
Today’s episode is a special episode, and it’s one that I really wish more hunters would not only listen to but get involved in. We are chatting with the CEO of Backcountry Hunters and Anglers about BHA, and about what kinds of things they’re working on, as well as things that hunters can step up and be a part of too. Too many hunters these days go hunting and think that someone else is out there making sure you can still go hunting next year. We use this analogy in the podcast, but I want to make sure it sinks in. Hunting conservation is like maintaining your truck. If you want to have a nice truck, you gotta take care of it. That’s what joining hunting conservation groups like Backcountry Hunters and Anglers is, it’s ensuring that our heritage that we love so much will be around to enjoy for years to come. I really encourage everyone to check out the podcast and go join BHA. It’s only $25 and is great insurance to help ensure that we have a backcountry to hunt, fish, and go do what we love.
I am super excited to share today’s interview with you guys. I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out and I’m so thankful to Larry D. Jones for taking the time and share his wisdom and experiences with us. Larry D Jones started bowhunting in 1961, and has travel around the world chasing adventure and experience ever since. Best known as for his elk calling and blacktail hunting Larry is someone I looked up and emulated all through my youth. Not is great to get to chat with your life long idle’s but to hear so much advice on both hunting and life is really special. I hope you guys enjoy this interview half as much as I enjoyed chatting with Larry D. Jones. If you do, we’d love it if you simply share it with friends who may also enjoy it. [Read more…]
