    This time of year, there's only one way to beat the heat: Ignore it and go hunt hogs anyway. There is some tactic to it, but really its a lot about collecting intel and making precise strikes. Its also a really good chance to brush up on your skills for SZN and give your equipment a really good check.

    The Video In Contest:

    BROADHEAD DESTRUCTION VIDEO

    Recently we put out a video where we shot a bunch of broadheads into a big piece of steel. It was about as much fun as you could have in 100º Texas heat. A lot of people like it, a few didn't. We thought we should talk about it. This led to a serious deep dive into the back corners of our hunting ethics.

Great Job

I found out about this show from having listened to an episode of The Southern Outdoorsman podcast a few months ago. I’ve been listening ever since, and I really enjoy how down to earth, blue collar, and relatable the guys are.

I live in Mansfield, TX and took up archery in 2020. I’ve been lucky enough to harvest a Texas public land buck in 2020 and 2021 with a tree saddle. I’ve also been up to Oklahoma and have aspirations to hit some other states. I say all that because it seems there aren’t a lot of Bowhunting podcasts that are based in Texas and it seems like bowhunters outside of this state are surprised when they hear about Bowhunting taking place (in this state).

It’s refreshing and relatable to listen to these guys and I always make sure I’m paying attention, and often I’ll rewind pieces back to ensure I really absorb the information - because they go in to such great detail. Great job guys and keep it up. I’ve only been at this for two seasons now but I’m hooked. I listen to podcasts and try to absorb as much content year round, just being a student - getting that itch for season in February haha. You can catch me all year sippin a cold beer in my garage with Whiskey Myers (shout to east Texas) jamming, and me shooting arrows in to my target from 7 feet away to make sure my mechanics are dialed. Thank you for all that you guys do!!

Good Ol Texas Boys and Bucks

I’m so glad I found this podcast. They are hardcore hunters but seem to be great family guys and Christ followers too who are unapologetic about sharing their faith while telling epic deer hunting stories. I’d love to share deer camp with these guys someday and chase big whitetails! Keep up the great work guys.

Awesome podcast

I love the Element podcast. KC and Tyler are fun, energetic, and educational. I look forward to following along with each episode and watching their YouTube videos. John from Suffering Outdoors.
