In this episode, I am joined by long-time elk hunter and predator caller Ed Sceery. Growing up Sceery game calls were a staple in my hunting pack. In fact, the first elk I ever called in was with a scenery Hyper Hot Cow Call. It is always a pleasure getting to chat with those with many years experience on me, they tend to have the best stories. In this episode, Ed shares his early days of working horseback for the forest service and finding a love for the mountains as well as elk hunting. We chat about the early days of learning to call coyotes and making a living off coyote hides. We also talk elk hunting of course and tactics learned in a lifetime of studying animals.
Welcome to the podcast, today I am joined by one of my hunting idols, Mr. Wayne Carlton. I grew up watching Wayne’s hunting videos and was obsessed with calling elk and the various sounds he could make with a diaphragm. To say it was an honor to get the opportunity to chat with Mr. Carlton is an understatement. In fact the very reason I started the podcast is to be able to ask guys like Wayne Carlton questions and pick their brain on elk hunting. In this episode Wayne shares some great tips for elk calling, elk calling strategies elk hunting stories and everything in between. Wayne truly is one I would put in the elk hunting hall of fame, and has probably forgot more about elk hunting then I will ever know. We also talk about Wayne’s newest project Native by Carlton and some of the products he has created over the years of elk hunting. Hope you enjoy my conversation with elk hunting legend Mr. Wayne Carlton. [Read more…]
Will Primos really needs no introduction. The founder of Primos Game Calls is working on his 20th elk hunting DVD this year. We have all watched in awe at the bulls Will has chased over the years. Will’s success both in business and in hunting is something I truly admire. His story is very much one of the American dream, and through that success he has been fortunate to spend a lot of time around elk and elk hunting. In this episode, we chat about everything from elk and elk hunting tactics, to industry direction, and great life lessons. One thing that I have always tried to draw out of hunting and from guests like Will, is the life lessons that hunting can teach us. Hunting has the ability to make us strive to be better–whether that be getting in better shape, learning patience, humility, or even compassion–we are constantly striving to be better. I love to chat with hunters who have been around and have some life experience, I have found that they have more to share than just which brand of bow I should use this year. Anyway, I hope you guys pull something from this conversation with Will Primos on elk hunting and success, and at a minimum I hope it gets everyone pumped for elk season right around the corner.
