It’s Wapiti Wednesday and only 3 more Wapiti Wednesday’s until its September, the greatest month of the year. I can almost taste it! This episode of Wapiti Wednesday I’m joined by the founder of The Elk Addicts Facebook Group to talk elk hunting. Chris started Elk Addicts as a place that elk hunters could come together and share their passion for all forms of elk hunting. The Elk Addict group is a great place to get feed back on gear, tactics and just about anything in elk hunting. In this episode Chris shares with us some great hunting stories from the last couple years on chasing elk, in particular, try to chase the same elk. The one that keeps getting away. Chris runs a lot of trail cams and likes to have a good idea about every elk in the area. We discuss the pros and cons of running cameras and the frustration that goes along with it.
