In todays episode we are chatting with Jay Scott. Jay is a very accomplished guide down in Arizona and has guided hunters to some truly amazing bull elk over the years. Jay and I talk about many of the differences and similarities that hunting elk up here in the north have in comparison to down where he is at in the Southwest.
There’s an old saying that 10% of elk hunters kill 90% of the elk in DIY elk hunting. Well we sit down with Zach Bowhay and chat about what the 10%, like himself, do differently to be successful in elk hunting. I love that Zach is a well rounded hunter and knows how to get it done in different ways and is not afraid to try something new. We talk about his new found success and love for stalking elk, his success with implementing decoys, his favorite gear, and much more.
I’m super excited about this episode as we are chatting with Trevon Stoltzufs of Outback Outdoors. Trevon and his team are top notch at telling the story with a video camera and really creating something special. Trevon and I chatted a lot about the industry and filming in general. We also cover his thoughts on becoming a better hunter and surrounding yourself with greatness to increase success. Trevon has some great advice and is always more then happy to share with his fellow sportsman.
Jim Burnworth is about as successful as they come in the hunting industry–on all levels. Jim has taken over a thousand big game animals in his career including 71 elk to date. So we chatted about his system and routines that he uses or does to make him the hunter he is. We also talked about western hunting in general and what species of animal will hone a hunter’s skill the most. This turned out to be a killer conversation with a ton of takeaways on how to become better hunters, bowmen, conservationists, and outdoorsmen in general. We also cover some of Jim’s other passions such as hot rods and hunting for old gems while on hunts for big game.
Today we are sitting down with long-time backcountry mule deer hunter Marc Smith. Marc is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to bowhunting and chasing monster mule deer, as he has been hunting and teaching backcountry bow hunting for decades. In this episode, we chat about Marc’s learning curve into the sport of bow hunting and how he would go about becoming a top hunter if he had to do it all again. We talk about hunting fitness and how his ideas on that have changed and evolved over the years. We cover a lot of great conversation based around the hunting industry and what it takes these days, as well as gear that Marc couldn’t live without. Marc dives into his bow setup and why he chooses a lot of the things he does and what makes a good product.
