    Ep. 13: 20 Years of Elk Hunting Experience with Cody Rich

    Some things I wish I knew about elk hunting 20 years ago?  One of the best ways to learn is through failure, but what if you had the opportunity to give your past self some valuable information you have learned along the way. In today's episode I sit down with Cody Rich to discuss what we would tell our past selves and what really matters when it comes to elk hunting.  We talk about luck versus consistency, when to be aggressive versus patient, what we truly remember about the hunts and a lot more.

    Ep. 12: Backcountry Elk Hunting with Nate Simmons

    Nate Simmons is one of those guys that gets it done year in and year out on backcountry bulls. Nate is one of those guys I’ve always had a ton of respect for. He’s humble, quiet and knows a ton about hunting elk and I’ve always wanted to pick  his brain on the subject. We sat down to discuss topics such as; how long to force a hunt in a marginal area, his approach to calling an elk, hunting in Grizzly country and how he prepares for success and much more in this episode.

    Ep. 10: Finding Elk Through E-Scouting with Mark Livesay

    Ep. 10: Finding Elk Through E-Scouting with Mark Livesay

    It seems easy enough, but in order to kill an elk you must first find elk. With today’s technology it is easier to find elk than ever before. Jason sits down with Mark Livesay to discuss the current technology available and locating elk through features that elk tend to prefer. They then discuss how we can identify combinations of these features to exponentially increase our chances of elk being there when we show up to hunt.
