So much for spot n stalk. That’s what you get for being versatile what a great hunt and very well written. A bitter sweet hunt with the loss of John’s mom I’m sure. Look forward to John’s return and your story for 2021
1st off I’d like to just say thank you to everyone who invested in reading that entire story and to those that took the extra time to let me know how much they enjoyed the read. This is the best hunting audience on earth, so I am honored to have a story that so many of you found interesting. That encourages me to do it again on future hunts.
2nd, I was recently asked to be a guest on “The Hunt-Fish Bums” podcast to talk about this hunt (as well as some general hunting philosophies, weaknesses and many other assorted rabbit holes). I was so nervous about it! I was truly flattered to be asked to talk about hunting-it’s my favorite thing to talk about - but thinking about it being recorded really got me anxious! But after hearing it I think it came out pretty dang decent. Anyway, if any of you are interested I’d appreciate you adding it to your download list and giving it a listen. The guy running the show is such a great guy and does such a good job. No sponsors, no pay. He Just loves this as much as we do and he puts a ton of time into it.
here is a link to it. “Hunt Fish Bums, Episode 36 Colorado Archery Elk Hunt with Dru Bishop”.
@FlyGuy This is the type of hunt story that has given me the itch to get out west this fall in 2021 for the first time! Unbelievable write up without leaving a stone unturned. Congrats on all the success and hope you guys have more to come!!
Super cool to hear the furstrations, pain, perseverence and "hanging in there". As they say
"LOVE the Pain" and thanks for sharing! Good luck again next year and as we all know, nothing quite ever goes as planned. Great Story.
Thanks for sharing your story. Very well written, couldn’t quit reading it. I am just starting to research attempting a Colorado elk hunt, sounds like a good hunting partner or two are pretty high on the list
