This week’s episode of the podcast my friend Calvin Halladay and I discuss various hunting tactics and tips for rifle elk season. Calvin is the owner and of Sheep Mountain Outfitters and has taken some great bulls here in our home state of Oregon. With elk season in full swing, or fast approaching for others, this episode is great for anyone from novice to pro. I couldn’t be more pumped about heading out this weekend in search of a big old bull hiding in a dark canyon somewhere, and after this chat with Calvin I can hardly wait to get out there. My overall tip to everyone with a rifle tag in their pocket is to go that extra mile. I have seen a lot of good hunters not take a rifle hunt quite as seriously as they would say a bow tag, and end up paying for it because they underestimated the hunt or took it lightly. Even if you are a die hard bow hunter, I think you will enjoy this conversation about elk and post-rut elk behavior.
