Gilbert Ornelas, Joe Giglia, Leroy Chavez

Planning your first time elk hunt is just SO COOL. There’s the excitement of the planning and dreaming of screaming bugles. The anticipation of that first morning..the smells, the incredible scenery, you against one of the icons of western hunting.

But we also know about the questions lingering in the back of your mind. What’s it really going to be like? Where do I start? How am I going to react the first time I actually see an elk up close? Do I have the right gear and the right game plan?

Look guys and gals, just like the rest of us, you are going to make mistakes and learn a LOT along the way. And it’s all good. Just part of your journey as an elk hunter. So our goal, with these episodes, is to help smooth out the bumps a bit and give you years of experience that can flatten that learning curve.

On this Episode of Blue Collar Elk Hunting, your coaches begin sharing what they feel are some of the most common mistakes or pitfalls made by first time elk hunters. 

In this Episode they discuss mistakes often made with:

  • wind & thermals
  • hunting styles and shot selection
  • problems with trail heads or the end of the road
  • response to other hunter pressure
  • a first time back country hunt

Also on Today’s Show, The ElkBros Shoutouts and on the EBD (Elk Behavior Database) Segment your coaches discuss Elk Travel habits.
