For the first Wapiti Wednesday of 2019, and the first official one in the new Patreon Insiders feed, I knew we had to crush it out of the park. My good buddy, Shawn Melland, is right up there if not one of the best elk hunters holding a bow right now. This guy puts more work into finding big bulls than anyone I know and is averaging a 375″+. Inches aren’t everything but for those who know what that takes, it gives you a good idea of how much work he puts in. In this podcast, Shawn and I talk about our plans for 2019, how we look at application strategy, and how to think outside the box. We also dive into what it takes to find big bulls and how big bulls don’t only come from those max point draw units. There are some absolute treasures in this episode and I recommend you listen twice.
The last two years we have produced a segment called Tag Tuesday during the application season. This year, with so much going on and feeling like the state breakdowns are being covered extremely well by other podcasts, we have decided not to do a state by state breakdown. I have good news though! Now that Wapiti Wednesday and Muley Monday coming out year-round, we will be doing more podcast like this one where we break down things we like about states or don’t like within our WW or MM shows. I am pumped about year-round elk and mule deer podcasts and plan to stack up as much value for you guys as we can.
