My wife commented that I looked to be having more fun than normal. As I think about it, I probably was. Very often when we are elk hunting, we have guests who, though they might be experienced hunters, may live somewhere that elk hunting is not something they get to do regularly. As such, I feel the burden of finding and getting elk is more on my shoulders, a responsibility I take seriously, along with all the concerns about caring for the meat if we are successful. In many instances, we have guests who have not been on camera, something that also requires me to focus on carrying the conversation and dialogue. That might provide a more serious tone from me, which gives a more serious tone to the hunt/episode.Very cool videos. Looks like everyone was having fun and congrats on the animals.
There was a ton of pressure near trailheads and in the lower areas. We just hiked further than most and got away the majority of people. There are clips of some folks walking along below us.Big Fin,
I love the Day by Day series you do. I’ve see you on other hunts where you express and sometimes show the large amounts of public land hunters. On this Montana hunt after having to switch locations you never really mentioned a ton of pressure or aired any footage. Was this spot you found fairly low pressure and that is why you guys had such great success?
Thanks. That was fun to watch and looked like a great time. You had so many people including the Destination Elk crew....were you all hunting the same santuary? I’m just a midwestern whitetail hunter and would love to hunt elk someday! With 0 points seems like my only chance would ever be to hunt on a general unit tag. I like your gameplan of getting away from pressure and finding the sanctuaries. Just curious if one area has multiple sanctuaries and everyone hunted a different sanctuary or do most bulls use the same deep pocket in one area as the core sanctuary? In other words how far apart were all 4 bulls killed?There was a ton of pressure near trailheads and in the lower areas. We just hiked further than most and got away the majority of people. There are clips of some folks walking along below us.
