This week on your weekly dose of Wapiti Wednesday. This week I catch up with a fellow elk nut from my home state of Oregon, Sereena Thompson. Sereena is from a small town in eastern Oregon where hunting runs deep in the roots of culture. Sereena grew up hunting, but ended up becoming even more hooked on elk hunting and eventually got into archery hunting for elk to spend more time in the woods. Not only is Sereena a fellow elk hunter but she is also a fellow entrepreneur who founded Natures Paint. I love chatting with fellow hunting entrepreneurs who chase their passion for the outdoors and for business. Hear Sereena’s story on how Natures Paint came to be and how hunting has shaped that journey.

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. Head over to PhelpsGameCalls.com fill your cart up with all the pretty colors and get Free Shipping with promo code TRO.
