Wapiti Wednesday is here! This week I am joined by fellow Bozemanite and elk fanatic Shawn Melland. Shawn is a beast and takes his elk hunting to a whole new level. As a former pro athlete, Shawn knows what it takes to operate at the next level and knows what kind of work goes into being successful. If his first 6 years of elk hunting he is averaging a 377″ bull killing 5 bulls all well over the 350″ mark, and all DIY public land. Shawn doesn’t even own a bugle and has never actually called in a bull at all, this fact alone intrigues me and want to dive into elk tactics that are completely outside of my wheelhouse. Shawn is amazing at thinking outside of the box, and even when I think that I am thinking outside the box Shawn will push me to think even farther and challenges most assumptions in elk hunting. If you like big bulls than you need to listen to this podcast!
