Season is So close I can taste it and nothing gets me more fired up than Wapiti Wednesday. Today I am joined by Dan Solsman, an under the radar killer from Idaho who has had some tremendous luck in his first few years of elk hunting. In this episode, we talk about the struggles Dan has faced on the early road to becoming an elk hunter as well as the highs and lows of hunting.

Wapiti Wednesday is brought to you by Phelps Game Calls. Phelps game calls are the best diaphragms out there. Even if you have tried to use diaphragm calls in the past but couldn’t, give Phelps AMP frame calls a try they are hands down the easiest calls to learn on. Also, the New “un-RIVAL-ed Bugle Tube” is out and available. The new tube packs a punch with great volume and tone, yet in a compact backcountry size. at only 4.5 ounces and 17.5” long this is ideal for guys packing in and not wanting the full-size bat. I am actually planning on rocking just the un-rival-ed tube this year on my Montana Hunt.
