EP 477: Managing Expectation and Making Game Time Audibles
1 hr 3 min

In today’s podcast young Jaden and I catch up on some recent hunts including my “deer” hunt that yielded one of the better rifle elk trips we have been on in years. We also chat about Jaden letting “The year of the deer” get to his head, and how to manage exceptions better while also keeping the “how its done” at the forefront of mind.

2020 definitely seems to have more hunters in the woods than other years, at least in places Jaden and I have hunted. With this we talk about how to use this to your advantage or at a minimum not let it get your head. Our recent rifle hunt was a great example of using pressure to your advantage. As Jaden preps for Colorado 3rd Deer coming up, this should be a great reminder to stick with your game plan and not get flustered by other hunters.

Today’s podcast is brought to you by Treeline Academy and the E-Scouting MasterClass. If you have listened to the podcast very long at all you have likely heard Mark Livesay and I talking E-Scouting. Those podcasts barely scratch the surface of what is in this masterclass. I am a huge fan of this, E-scouting is probably the single most important skill in my opinion to being a successful hunter. If you aren’t in elk you can’t hunt elk and if you can’t get away people you aren’t going to have much fun. Tags are getting harder and hard to get invest the knowledge to capitalize on those hunts. I can’t say it enough this masterclass will blow your mind and put you at a different level. If you weren’t into elk this year do yourself a favor and start planning now, this masterclass will take you weeks if not months to get through and that much time again to put into practice, it is just that comprehensive. Put in the work now and make yourself a better hunter. This class will 100% make you a 201 hunter if you put it to practice I whole heartedly believe that. Use code TRO and save yourself $20 which gives you access to the course for two full years. If you sign up now you will also get a couple extra month free because your clock won’t start until Jan 1. Head over to and sign up for the E-Scouting masterclass, its going to blow your mind.
Hunting Season is here and you don’t have On X downloaded on your phone you are living under a rock. On X Maps is the number one hunt mapping system out there. One of the cool features I use constantly throughout season is sharing waypoints and areas with hunting buddies. From glassing locations to camp pins this feature gets used often. I will even use the area shape tool to highlight areas then send that to say hey this hillside should have a good buck or bull on it. On X recently launched their new 3D mapping which is still in beta and only on the desktop but this allows you to really see glassing points hillsides and overall terrain features in an area. Good luck out there this year and remember to download any maps you may need before hitting the hills and you will have access to all of your saved e-scouting plans.

EP 97: Guided Elk Hunt or DIY? Pros & Cons
*Guided or DIY elk hunts? A question we have been getting a lot these days.* Many hunters planning their upcoming hunts, especially first timers, are weighing whether they should hunt DIY or consider hiring a guide: "What strengths does a guide bring to a hunt that I couldn't?" "Would I learn more from a guide?" "Will I have more success?" "Can I afford it?" "Can I get a guide on public land?" "What do you recommend?" *On Today’s Edition of Blue Collar Elk Hunting,* your elk hunting coaches talk the pros & cons of guided vs DIY elk hunts. Included in the discussion is how not all guided or "do it yourself" hunts look alike and the variables that can bring the two closer in some ways as well as put them on the opposite ends of the scale in others.  It's a great topic and one where your coaches have plenty of experience on both sides of the fence. Hope you enjoy the episode.  EVERYTHING ElkBros – PURCHASE ElkBros Merch - BLUE COLLAR ELK HUNTING ACADEMY  - Watch the Blue Collar Elk Hunting Podcast: Listen to their Blue Collar Elk Hunting Podcast:  *SUBSCRIBE!

Stories From The Season: Why Pack Burros Are Awesome with Shane Weigand
This week on the Stories From The Season Series Chad talks to Shane Weigand. We change things up a bit this week and talk about hunting with pack animals, burros more specifically. Shane uses two burros when he hunts and this year he was stuck in a sticky situation when the New Mexico weather took a nasty turn on them mid hunt. Shane talks about handling and caring for the burros as well as how useful they are. We cover a lot of topics on this show, but it doesn’t stop at hunting. Shane is also a pack burro racer. Yep I said racer. He explains the origins of pack burro racing and how he got involved with the sport. It sounds super fun to me. I may have to borrow a burro for a run someday. You will enjoy this show Stories From The Season was created as a way for us to let our friends share their hunting stories. I love to listen to great hunting stories to get an idea of the experience, but I think there is a lot of great opportunities to learn for other success or failure. When you hear a person talk about a stalk or how they achieved success you can apply the same techniques to your hunting strategies. Enjoy the Series!
