WE APPRECIATE YOU TAKING THE TIME TO SUBSCRIBE / RATE / REVIEW How in the heck do I begin to decide where to hunt elk? How do I even pick a State? What factors do you look at when deciding where to hunt elk? What are ways to break down a hunt unit to locate elk? When looking at a mountain, what do you see that others don’t? On today's show, our special guest Garrett Weaver, of the OnPoint with Garrett Weaver Podcast, joins the ElkBros crew to help our listeners with the decision dilemma that elk hunters go through when it comes to where to hunt for the upcoming season.

It'a real easy to get caught up in all the complications and technical advances when hunting elk....  Our gear can be as advanced or as basic as you want. The technical level of the gear often becoming a personal choice based on a hunters spiritual, competitive or outcome based needs and wants. But at the end of the day, it's still just elk hunting. A dance of survival between hunter and prey that has taken place for a thousand years. And for many, no matter the gear, the hunt is about way more than the harvest. On today's 4th Edition of this Series, the crew welcomes Grinder Bryan Collins from Pound, Wisconsin as he shares a story about brothers, elk hunting dreams, a borrowed bow and a special honor. Bryan is a traditional archer and reminds us that elk hunting is not necessarily about the gear, but more about the person and what they know and the hunting skill set they bring to the mountain. As well as what's in their heart. This is one great story y'all! This series is designed for you to hear real stories from folks just like you. You'll hear all the decisions, the ups, the downs and outcomes of a 2021 Western elk hunt. Each in itself a learning moment towards the final day. Was the hunt a success?

Elk hunting, as in life, is all about choices. The choices we make in preparation prior to a hunt, on where we hunt and all decisions and choices made during the hunt. Each of those choices, a culmination of events that influence, alter or set us on a path that will result in a punched tag, or another year of scratching our head. Those choices can also directly influence the difficulty, danger, enjoyment or life opportunities that come our way. On today's show, the crew welcomes Grinder Stephan Richardson from Springdale, Arkansas as he shares how those very choices not only effected his hunt outcome, but they also added a newfound faith and friendship. This series is designed for you to hear real stories from folks just like you. You'll hear all the decisions, the ups, the downs and outcomes of a 2021 Western elk hunt.

Imagine hunting elk, an animal you have never seen or heard before, in a part of the country you have never been! We are talking ZERO experience! What are your chances of punching an over the counter tag in one of the highest pressured elk hunting states? Shoot, would you even see one? Where would you hunt? How would you find elk? Where would you even begin on such a journey? On today's show, the crew welcomes Grinder John Lane from Florida (via Virginia) for an incredible story about going for it. John talks about his crew and the adventure of a lifetime that they permitted... and then committed themselves. You'll hear all the decisions and the ups, downs and outcomes of their 2021 Western DIY, OTC, Colorado elk hunt. Were they able to accomplish their goal of seeing and just hearing the bugle of a bull elk? Well, y'all... pull up a chair and just find out! WORDS & NOTES FROM JOHN: I hope I got across that I did not kill this bull but, WE the whole group killed this bull. This bull was all of ours. Anyone with questions can contact me through my instagram @lane_vahunter. I always want to share the passion for the outdoors with a field to fork mindset. Books: Sovereignty: The Battle for the Hearts and Minds of Men by author Ryan Mickler (all men can gain something from this book to better their life) Wild at Heart by John Eldredge. (christian book, literally the 1st two pages of book paint a beautiful picture of hunting Colorado for elk) Body: Workouts to prepare for hiking with a pack and running to get better cardio. Not needing a gym membership, just go cut the grass with a weighted pack and specific exercises any working man could do at home with a busy family life. Equipment: Changing from single pin to 3 pin slider due to the spot and stalk hunting method. Upping my arrow weight and higher FOC. Using a sidebar to balance bow due to quiver. Testing gear before trip: Making dehydrated meals at home on little stove and making sure I knew how it all worked. Making sure I sampled the meals to find ones I liked and did not upset my stomach. Setting up tent/sleeping system many times to make sure you could do it in your sleep (or more importantly the dark). Practice: Shooting every week with a quiver on a bow full of arrows (most east coast guys are tree stand hunters so the quiver comes off when we get in the tree). Going to 3d courses with pack on (with trip weight) & bino harness to help simulate the hunt. Making sure to guess 3d course shots before using rangefinder to get better at judging distances (may not have time to pull rangefinder out with screaming bull in your face). Practicing out to 75-80 yards so can be deadly inside 40 yards. Making sure to practice with broadheads. Success: I talked about my goals for the trip but not what success meant to me and what success should be for any rookie hunting elk. New western hunters need to know that just planning and making the trip happen with all the family dynamics (t-ball practice, work schedule etc) is what it is all about. Spending time in nature with your brothers and the fellowship is what makes the trip. We all want to kill a bull but that is the cherry on top. Spending time in God's country, seeing the beautiful aspens, the amazing stars at night or telling old stories by the campfire is what will recharge your soul and that is what success really is. God Bless and happy hunting!

Everyone has heard us say it... WE HUNT AGGRESSIVELY! But what in the heck does that mean? Are we calling angrily? Are we challenging every response? Do we run into a situation like a bull in a china closet? The problem with the word "aggressive" is that it has different meanings for different folks and most people misinterpret our tactics because of it. So it's time to fix that! On today's show, we cover the ElkBros levels and progression of aggressive elk hunting. What it is and what it isn't. First we cover what it is in the most basic and simple of terms. From there we break down all the different aspects of a hunt and how we apply our aggressiveness. During our conversation on aggressiveness, we will cover these areas and more: Locating, finding elk or bringing elk from other areas  Injecting rut activity when it’s been quiet Selecting the time of day we hunt. When we start Frequency and use of calls, scenarios.  Reacting to a response Moving to make a shot opportunity happen Drawing or get in rifle position  Deciding on hunt areas SUBSCRIBE / RATE / REVIEW Looking for an Elk Hunting Partner?

A GAME CHANGER... That's the one thing that changes your elk hunting life forever! It's not always a skill, technique or strategy. But more of a realization or an "Ah-Ha" moment. Something happens... OR someone finally put it to you in a way that the light bulb comes on and things are never the same from that moment on! Today we share some of those "Ah-Ha" moments. With us today is special guest, Guy Duplantier, of the Western Contours Podcast. Guy returns after a 24 day elk hunt in which he calls in 13 bulls. One of them actually beds down only 5 FEET AWAY!  It was the season of a lifetime for Guy and not by accident. Guy dedicated his off-season to finding the resources needed to fill the holes in his elk hunting game and then put them into practice. What he discovered was game changing for him. Come on into elk camp as we talk to Guy about those things that made the difference. How he put his knowledge to work and gained five years of experience in 5 days! We hope you enjoy the episode!

On today’s episode of Blue Collar Elk Hunting, we are still out in the mountains chasing elk and getting some great content to share, but since we aren’t back, we going to share a collaborative show I prerecorded with David Brooks of the Don’t Be Mediocre Podcast. David and I talk elk and elk hunting: Scouting for elk, comparing e-scouting vs boots on the ground. I also talk about what I look for when scouting and finding my focus areas and how I’m not focused on finding bulls while scouting. From there our conversation goes to hunting scenarios, and some of the strategies I use and how some of those strategies came about. Hope you enjoy the episode.

You hear over and over again about the major events or actions needed to successfully harvest an elk with archery equipment; how to get a response,... what a setup is,... knowing your effective range,... and then make a killing shot. Step 1, then 2, then 3 and finally four and BULL DOWN! If ONLY it happened that way! But what about all the variables leading to, or in between those steps? It's those "unknowns" not talked about from one step to the other that we are missing. Well, y'all... let's see if we can help with that! It's Part 3 of our next series: Archery Elk Hunting From Response to Release... Connecting the dots! The goal of this episode is to help you fill in some of those gaps and we begin by talking about things that happen from before you see the elk, to “there he is”. Just a few of the topics: How do I know if he is still coming? If I’m not sure what to do? Should I call to verify his location or stay silent?  If I do call, what calls should I use?  What if he doesn’t answer, should I move and go look for him? I still don’t see him but he sounds like he is moving to my downwind side… what do I do? He just busted out a bugle closing in, I haven’t seen him yet, but he’s way closer. Do I respond? I didn’t respond when he sounded closer, and he is still bugling but from the same location.  Do I go after him? Do I call now? If so, what call? I hear another hunter off to my right, calling into the situation. What should I do? Another hunter walked into my set-up… what do I do? We hope you enjoy the episode.

The goal of this episode is to help you fill in some of those gaps and we begin by talking about things that happen between creating a set-up and an elk coming into range. Just a few of the topics: What is the difference between a good and a bad set-up? What am I looking for? Does it change with a two person team? What exactly is a “Stop & Scan” spot? How should I position myself according to the wind? Can I make noise when setting up? Should I take my pack off where I set up? Can I move my feet or body with an elk within sight?  How do I keep from making noise if I move? Should I hide behind a tree? How far should I be from my backdrop? What if cover is really limited? How should my bow be positioned? We hope you enjoy the episode. Looking for an Elk Hunting Partner? Check out our free Elk HuntingBUDDY site. Click here!

Absolutely yall are amazing and we contribute our yearly success to your teachings and building upon that for each of the situations we meet. Going from new hunters never filling a elk tag to 3 out of 4 tags filled after 2 seasons. Thank you elk bros for all your hard work and dedication!
