Today is an epic podcast with another under the radar killer in Wyoming. Stephen Rosso straight up gets after it in the backcountry with a pile of elk and deer to show for it. When Wyoming announced that they were planning to wipe out the Mountain Goats that were threating the Bighorns in the Teton Range Stephen threw his name in the hat. This hunt was no walk in easy picking, with very few goats even out of the park odds on this hunt were some of the lowest out there. Call it luck or skill Stephen turned up a great billy before the season and the hunt turned out to be one that he will not soon forget.
Huge shout out to Phelps game calls, makers of the finest elk calls out there and to Backcountry Fuel Box for making this podcast happen. Stephen is actually a subscriber of the box and has been since day one. We got to talking after the podcast and he was telling me how much he loves getting the box every month. We just shipped out a pile of August boxes but we do have a few leftover boxes so if you sign up for a subscription now we will ship you out an August Box right away and you will get your September Box on the September 20th.
Also, we are giving away a Phelps Unleashed Tube and two elk reeds every week on my The Weekly Bugle, my weekly email about what I am up, to the gear I am testing, or probably most popular what songs I am listening to. So if you want to win some free Phelps calls and get a short, sweet, to the point email about what I am up to, sign up for The Weekly Bugle and therichoutdoors.net/bugle
