Welcome to the podcast. I get a lot of requests for Roosevelt elk podcasts and today we have just that. Oregon archery season is underway, and I don’t know how many folks will be listening, but maybe this will get you fired up for your weekend adventure. Today I am joined by Derek Carlton, who eats, sleeps, and breathes NW hunting. In fact, I need to say congrats to Derek for already punching his buck tag on a dandy 4 point blacktail. I really enjoyed this episode as it takes me back to my roots to hear stories from Derek talking about chasing big old Rosies. Like I said Derek gets it done year after year and it is easy to tell that he puts a serious amount of time into his craft and has a great understanding for his quarry. If you have a Roosevelt tag in your pocket, give this episode a listen!

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. Head over to PhelpsGameCalls.com fill your cart up with all the pretty colors and get Free Shipping with promo code TRO.
