Slade Daniel is the perfect example of how hunting goes when you're not doing it for "the gram".  Lots of guys out there struggle to find time between being a good husband and father to do things they like and Slade takes a little time to show us why he chose a Crossbow this year and what it has done for him and his family.  Big Congrats Slade!  We hope duck SZN is as good as deer SZN has been!


Check out all the "BIG BUCKS" we have had encounters with:

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!
