Wapiti Wednesday is here! The new Wapiti Wednesday has turned into a big hit and for good reason, who doesn’t love elk hunting and elk hunting stories. Today’s Wapiti Wednesday is with Mr. Scott Salmon of Washington State. Scott found hunting later in life but has really excelled in mastering the craft. Scott was able to draw a very coveted special draw tag last year and absolutely capitalized on the opportunity going the extra mile to make sure he took full advantage of the opportunity. We cover the story of his epic 2016 bull along with the quick turn around and helping a family member capitalize on yet another absolute monster. Scott shares many of the highs and lows of his journey in elk hunting and talking about all the things he wish he knew when he first started elk hunting.
