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.
