E86: Trials and Triumphs of Hunting as a Family (The Story of K.C.’s Bull, Elk Hunting With Your Parents, Deer Season Opening Day Strategies)

September 27, 2018

Arrows have been released. The sweet taste of success has already been sampled. We are hungry for more!

As I am typing this description there bucks are nudging does in the neighborhood, making scrapes on persimmon trees, and the breeze is a brisk north. 

In this episode we discuss the conclusion of K.C.'s Colorado DIY OTC Elk hunt with his family. Their hunt came down to the wire! Also, as we recorded, we were driving around truck scouting a public property here in Texas trying to formulate a plan for the season opener. We got a huge boost in confidence when we spotted a true Public Land toad at last light! Right away the OnX came out and we started scheming away. We've plotted our attack. Now we wait to put the pieces in motion for opening day!

Look for the PLC from that Texas trip coming soon!
