Dirk Durham from Orofino, ID joins us today to talk all things elk.  Dirk has hunted multiple states with general elk tags and has had a lot of success, but that wasn't always the case.  We explore his learning curve on elk, what elk tactics he's employed over the years and how he's adjusted his approach over time.  Dirk is an incredible elk caller, in fact he competes in the RMEF Elk Calling Championships each year.  His handle on Instagram is @TheBugler and he's got his own elk call from Phelps called The Maverick.  We talk about how to approach...

Today we have an electric conversation with Zack Owens better know as @beyond_the_backcountry on Instagram.  Zack's an Idaho guy who hunts exclusively on public land for elk, but his day job has him guiding hunters on a private ranch.  Zack is authentic, unapologetic and full of insight.  We talk about his archery elk hunt with a recurve, his first wolf harvest, and what it is like guiding rookie elk hunters.  We even get into ranch bulls versus public land bulls.  Don't miss this one!  ELKSHAPE PARTNERS Bohning Archery Caribou Gear Game Bags Hoyt Achery Vortex Optics Exo Mountain Gear Option...

Today we talk frontal shots on elk.  We get into Justin's 7 year elk hunting learning curve and the story of his first bull on public land with an over-the-counter tag.  Justin has worked behind the counter of an archery pro shop for years and has seen it all.  We go over tried and true equipment for elk including arrow rest selection, string selection, and common pitfalls of archery technique.  Like all our episodes, we bring on ordinary people with extraordinary knowledge.  Enjoy.

Thanks for checking out this podcast designed to get you out of the elk hunting learning curve and help you be more consistent year after year on public land.  That's right, this is for the blue collar crowd that hunts on their own with over-the-counter elk tags. Today I talk about my idea of a ELKSHAPE CAMP 2019.  After listening, if you have ideas send them to me on Instagram or my email address that I give during the episode. We bring on my good buddy and shed hunting fool Jason Barkemeyer from New Mexico to break down his elk...
