In the last couple months we've been experimenting with some ideas of how to answer the many emails I get related to our elk hunts. In talking with partners about the volume of PMs and emails, they suggested I do a live Q&A. I take questions and answer them live. They have offered to handle the hardware, software and logistics to distribute the content.Edit - Links for quick navigation:
So with that, Bowtech, Leupold, and RMEF have pushed me to use the Bowtech Livestream Platform to do a Q&A session on Wednesday nights, 10pm ET (8pm by my Montana clock.) This new idea is being titled Elk Talk.
It comes with some serious apprehension. First, I'm hardly an elk expert. There are guys who have some amazing success on big bulls. I happen to be the lucky one who gets to travel to 6-8 different places each year, hunting elk or helping others who are hunting elk, over a wide array of seasons and geography, making a ton of mistakes that I hope to not repeat. Most my answers will be based on two decades of trail and error, mostly error, chasing public land elk in most of the western elk range.
Second, I'm accustomed to TV content, where you film something and it airs ten months later. Now, I'm diving into the pool where it is live streamed ten seconds later; no re-take, no edits, just walking the high wire without a net.
You can watch and provide questions on our Facebook page, the Bowtech and Leupold Facebook pages, or the RMEF website stream they will be using via the Livestream service. As we get more comfortable and we work out the kinks, we will eventually expand it to the websites and YouTube channels of the partners and our own. The recorded video files will be out on your YouTube channel.
Wish me luck. I'm going to need it. Thanks for following and/or providing any questions.
