Well, Jaden did it he finally killed a bull! After one hell of a season filled with close calls young Jaden bulled it all together on his last day. If you have followed along with the podcast this year we put out a 201 mini-course, which mainly stemmed from conversations between Jaden Bales and myself. Jaden was bound and determined to kill his first bull with his bow this year. Before the season we recorded a podcast and Jaden had a lot of great questions around elk hunting and things that he was struggling with. This episode we got the chance to follow up after a roller coaster of a season. Poor Jaden had about as rough of a season as you can have with misses, bad weather, a blown up truck, and more he had every right to throw in the towel but he stuck with it to the very end and in panned out.
In this episode, we talk about the lessons learned, the mindset shift and what it means to him now to see that 201 level hunter. I think I was as happy for him as he was when I finally got that text of a blood-soaked arrow.
