Alright guys, welcome to the show. On today’s episode, I get together with the Hobson family, which, prior to doing this podcast, I had no idea that they only lived about 10 minutes down the road from me. So, to make it easy, I decided to drive down to their house and record an awesome episode. We talked a lot about each family members experiences in the past of calling in bulls, waiting on wallows, missing bulls, all of the things you can expect from elk hunting over the years. They share with us their brutal pack outs that lead to them buying horses, which brings them into a whole new ballgame. Hope you enjoy this episode as much as I did recording it. Thanks, guys!
