Happy Monday everybody and welcome to the show. Today’s guest is known by his friends as probably the luckiest hunter in the world, but if you ask me, the harder you work the luckier you get. Kyle Jackson is a Californian who started as a rifle hunter, and within the last year has become obsessed with archery. Like most other die hards, Kyle hunts multiple states almost every year and has found success in huge variations of country. In this episode, we cover Kyle’s hunter from Spot and stalk blacktail in California, the high country in Colorado, and the most interesting to me would be the OTC Arizona hunt in January. This super late season hunt is action packed but is definitely not guaranteed. Kyle’s got some different tactics that he shares, particularly his ability to call in deer. We also cover a few the challenges that hunters face who are lifetime rifle hunters making the transition to archery hunting for the first time. Thanks for tuning in today guys!
