Get your note pad out because Mark Livesay is about to drop some knowledge on you guys. Last year Mark and I recorded a two-hour podcast about e-scouting and using all of the tools available today. There was still so much we didn’t get to cover due to time so this time around we skipped past the formalities and got right down to the meat and potatoes, finding elk. We reposted that first podcast yesterday if you want to dive into that one first.

This episode is brought to you by On X maps the most trusted maps for public/private mapping and one of the single most important tools in my toolbox. I use On X constantly for everything from scouting to in the field. If you don’t have an On X membership you are missing out big time. In fact On X just keeps upping the value, with even more awesome features coming out. They just launched new waypoint icons as well as new colors. This is huge for me because if your On X account looks anything like mine there is about a million little red markers. I have now been going through and updating colors to show different things like potential scouting spots, access points, water locations, feed locations, pinch points and things like that. On X is a must-have for every western hunter and if you are coming out west from another state I can’t stress enough how important it is to have.

This episode is brought to you by Phelps Game Calls. I have run Phelps elk calls for years and I can’t say enough about them. Phelps calls are in my opinion the most high quality easy to use calls out there. Whether you are a complete rookie or a seasoned pro these calls will work great. Not only do I constantly recommend the Phelps amp frame to people who have struggled using diaphragm style calls but I can run the same calls and get great life out of them throughout an entire season.
