Welcome to the podcast! I know you hate hearing awesome elk hunting stories but I had to share this hunt with you guys. Devin Leonard (@devinleonard_) was lucky enough to draw a killer rifle bull tag in Utah and decided he wanted to get it done with his bow. Those of you who listen to the podcast have probably heard Dallas Hemeyer on the show and I would guess have seen his film work with The Experience. I absolutely love Dallas’ filming style and the duo did not disappoint on Devin’s amazing elk hunt. Taking a Bow to a Gun Fight launched on The Experience Youtube Channel July 1st and already has well over 100,000 views. In this episode we dive into the story and get the behind the scenes look into the struggles of using a bow on a rifle hunt.

This Episode is brought to you by onXmaps. If you are a serious hunter onX is 100% a must have in todays hunting environment. I often ask on the podcast what the best piece of gear under 100 dollars is that makes them a better hunter and this is hand down on my list of gear under $100 dollars. onX maps is not only the most trusted public/private mapping system out there for all 50 States, but it also has all kinds of map layers. From hunting units, to road systems, to burns it has a ton of information. I don’t think I can stress enough how important it is these days to know where you are and where you can and can’t hunt. On top of all of that the onX app allows you save maps and use them when you are out of service. I actually just learned this out on my last bear hunt, but onX maps uses your phones GPS so it shows you exactly where you are even when your phone is on airplane mode. The best part is your onX maps sync between all your devices. So when you scout on the computer at home and mark all of your points of interest, glassing points, bugle spots, they all automatically sync with your phone or tablet as well. I think this is an awesome product and a must have for hunters which is why I am super excited to have OnX as a sponsor of the shop. Use the Rich Outdoors Promo codeTRO and save 20%on a membership. It truly is one of the best tools under $100 to make you a better hunter.
