Alright everybody welcome to Wapiti Wednesday, hope some of you have found luck so far this season, and as for the rest, I hope that some of these segments will help get you there. In today’s show, I interview a good old eastern Oregon boy- Toby Gangler. Toby is one of those guys that has found success in elk hunting in recent years, is all to familiar with the difficulties of the hunt and is the first to person to tell you that killing an elk isn’t easy. His wife, on the other hand, would probably argue otherwise, considering Toby admitted that she tends to kill an elk every year before him. Toby and his wife are absolute die hards, and even had one of their daughter’s transfer schools for literally just the month of September, that way she could be closer to them while they elk hunted. If that’s not dedication, I don’t know what is. In this episode, we talk a lot about hunting with your spouse, and the highs and lows that come with it. We tap into some early season elk tactics as well as late season, and how those tactics differ from each other. Toby was lucky enough to get a job that moved him and his family over to some great elk hunting ground, which means he is literally checking cams about two miles from his house. Be sure to check out Toby’s youtube page Switchback Outdoors, to see him and his wife be successful over the last few years. Good luck to everyone out there, hope this podcast is helpful to you as we continue on through the season. Make sure you tag us in your success! I love to hear from happy fans. Thanks, guys!

Lately with all the discussion around public lands I have been on a Theodore Roosevelt binge, and listening to every book I can. One of my favorites and a great starting point would have to be The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt, by Edmund Morris which is one of my favorite biographies of Mr. Roosevelt.
