Well, because I know you guys can’t get enough of ol’ Elk Nut Paul Medel I had to have him back on and dive into the seasons’ highs and lows. Paul was on for Wapiti Wednesday back in August and I think literally blew peoples minds as we ended up talking in depth elk calling tactics for nearly 3 hours. This time he is back and this episode is jammed packed with elk knowledge as well. Get ready to take some notes is all I have to say.
Real quick before we get started, earlier this week I posted a State of the Union of sorts where I talked about some of the big plans for 2018 as well as the launch of my new project Backcountry Fuel Box. A monthly subscription box for backcountry snacks, meals, bars, mixes, and everything else you could need for fuel on your next hunt. We have already received a bunch of feedback but I would love for you guys to do me a favor and check it out. If you wanna hear more listen to episode 192 or head over to Backcountry Fuel Box .com sign up for the prelaunch and we will send you all kinds of information about the project as well enter you in to get the first box free, and we are going to be giving a bunch of free boxes to the listeners for all your guys’ support. Now without further ado and for your listening pleasure its time to dive into a rabbit-hole of elk knowledge. Have a very Merry Christmas everyone, enjoy the holiday and we shall be back next Thursday Morning.

On X Maps
This episode is brought to you by On X Hunt. I recently harvested a great bull in Montana and I owe a huge part of that to my OnX. This was an area that I had hunted years ago but because of On X, I was actually able to find a new access point to get into the area from a new way and save myself a lot of miles. For that hunt, I actually spent a ton of time on my laptop scouting areas and marking locations which are super cool because then when I get out in the field all of those points of interest I marked on my computer are now right there on my phone. It all worked out really well and I ended up finding a really cool bull and was lucky enough to harvest him. Another really cool new feature of the OnX hunt app is that after I shot the bull I was able to share that location with my buddy Butch who was coming in to help me pack out. which made it super convenient for him to know exactly where to find me. On X Hunt is hands down my best hunting tool I have for under $100 dollars and highly recommend getting it. Check it out and use The Rich Outdoors promo code TRO to save %20 off your membership.
