|Whale Tail Outdoors|
While being raised in the great state of Colorado I have had the good fortune of experiencing some amazing hunting in my short lifetime. I attribute most of my success today as an outdoorsman to being brought up as a traditional bow hunter. While most of my outings in the woods as a teenager produced limited kills with my longbow, I still cherished these days without harvest as valuable lessons in the woods. As I look forward to every hunting trip I plan, I especially look forward to heading deep into the elk woods with my dad and brothers each fall. Hunting elk with a stick and string during the rut has always had a way of stirring something deep in my soul. Maybe my favor for elk hunting stems purely from nostalgia. On the other hand, maybe the endless challenges of being a successful elk hunter is what keeps me wanting more.
