Exposure to Bear Repellent Sends 24 Amazon Workers to Hospital

How to Bowhunt Elk When It's Hot and Dry

Hunting in dry, hot weather can be tough. I've faced those conditions during 20-some years bowhunting New Mexico's Gila region to be sure; the corn-flake ground, each step an auditory assault. Idaho normally affords quieter footing, though thick brush that clutches and trips can turn this long-time denizen of open...


A Dangerous Alaskan Moose Hunt

I'd been suckered back in — back to bowhunt moose in Southeast Alaska. I should’ve known better. I'd visited Southeast twice before. Some of the worst hunts of my life, though the second time I actually saw a couple bulls. I bowhunted somewhere else for moose before that, trudging through...

Elite Elk Hunters: The 20 Percent Club

The thought of yet another missed opportunity the previous evening boiled through my mind as I pounded my way up the trail in the black, early morning hours. “Was I being too conservative?” I relentlessly asked myself as I made the 2-mile hike back to a secluded drainage. Or, should...


How to Bowhunt Real World Public Land Elk
