This year I launched Backcountry Fuel Box, a monthly subscription box for backcountry meals, bars, snacks, guess, and all kinds of great new products you have probably never heard of. It is a killer way to test out new options, or just save money by stashing each box for season. Check it out at backcountryfuelbox.com and save 10% with code TRO.
Hang on to your headphones girls and boys, this podcast is going to blow your mind! We had been kicking around this idea to put together the best elk hunting parts from every podcast we have done in the last 274 episodes on elk hunting. This was a monumental task and I can’t thank everyone who helped enough, without the help of the listeners who stepped up and helped us go through literally hundreds of hours on content to pull out the extra special nuggets of wisdom. Also the big round of applause to John the producer for bringing it all together. We really wanted to create The Ultimate Road Trip to Elk Camp Podcast with the idea you could jam out all the way to elk camp. We may be a touch late for some of you but hopefully, this podcast helps you find success this season. This podcast was a huge undertaking but the only ask I have from you guys in return is that you share it with your hunting buddies and also go check out my newest project Backcountry Fuel Box. These podcasts and this information is only made possible by you guys supporting the companies that make the show happen. So make sure you support the sponsors, and if you are a dead broke college student, I totally understand, just help spread the word. Tell everyone you know The Rich Outdoors is your favorite podcast. Alrighty, enjoy this gigantic compilation of badass elk hunters, and thank you so much to all of the fans who helped put this together.

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.

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.
