Hey everybody, welcome to the show. On today’s episode, I once again bring on Zach Bowhay. Zach might just be in the lead after this episode for most appearances on the show, but how can you blame me? He’s always full of great advice and tactics and is a very well rounded hunter. Lately, with late season elk hunts approaching, I’ve been getting tons of questions regarding tactics for these later rifle tags. My podcast is normally been geared towards archery hunting since that’s my bread and butter, but it was just last year that I had a late season rifle tag in my pocket. So, instead of answering each of your questions individually, I figured a podcast dedicated to the subject would be the easiest way to help everybody with an upcoming hunt. Zach and I dig into what we know is the best way to find big bulls during this time of year, as well as finding elk in general when they’re not in their usual spots. Hope this episode brings some useful information to you, good luck and thanks for listening!
