Today I chat with some good buddies from Bozeman about an EPIC first bull. My friend Paul Kemper has been trying to kill a bull with his trad bow knowing full well that it could take a lifetime. Not only did he harvest his first bull this year but it was a bonified giant too. While just looking for any elk that would let him get close to it Jered Frasier of 2% for conservation and Pual stumbled into a giant bull that just did all the right things. I am so pumped for Paul and love hearing the excitement in their voices as they relive the epic day on the mountain. We also talk about all kinds of random shenanigans and lots of stories as we crack some postseason brews and enjoy some fine wall tent snacks.
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.
