“To be able to work with Randy and focus on a subject we’re both incredibly passionate about – and to bring others along on the experience through the platform of a podcast – is going to be awesome!” said Jacobsen.

Video: Bowhunting Bull Elk in Idaho


Big Idaho bulls!

From Stuck N The Rut:

“Bowhunting elk. This is a continuation from Episode 34. After Travis shoots the bear, we skin it out and continue our elk hunt. As we get to the top, we hear the bull on the other side of the mountain bugling, but because he had a herd of cows, he refused to come in. After a couple hours of bugling, we decided to move into his territory without bugling (the silent treatment). As we moved closer, we heard him bugle again. After getting within 150 yards from the bull, Travis stayed put and Tom moved in with his bow closer. Tom found a good spot to set up with his bow, and so Travis challenged the herd bull to fight. You’ll need to watch the video to see what happens. This is what elk hunting is all about. This is two brothers DIY on public hunting ground. Make sure to subscribe to us and if you want to watch these hunts in better quality, go to http://www.stuckntherut.com and these are free hunting episodes”

More Pennsylvania Elk Country Protected, Open to Public Access

Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation

MISSOULA, Mont.—Another piece of Pennsylvania elk country is permanently protected and open to public access thanks to a collaborative effort by the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and the Pennsylvania Game Commission (PGC).

The Woodring Farm II project entails 37 acres and is the newest addition to State Game Lands 311. It is located near a project finalized in 2014 and marks the 13th RMEF land protection and access project in Pennsylvania elk country.

“Even though these three parcels amount to just 37 acres, every piece of the puzzle counts in expanding the total amount of elk habitat acreage protected in Pennsylvania,” said Blake Henning, RMEF chief conservation officer. “We appreciate our partners at the Pennsylvania Game Commission as well as RMEF members and volunteers for their continual support.”

The property lies within the heart of the Pennsylvania elk range in Elk County’s Benezette Township which boasts the highest elk population density in the state.

“This acquisition is critical as it protects a very popular public corridor for elk viewing.  Public visitation to these viewing areas increases every year,” said Bryan Burhans, PGC executive director. “However, high-quality elk range is finite. This area is now protected perpetually thanks to our partners at RMEF and an anonymous donor.”

Funds generated from Pennsylvania elk tags and the anonymous donation to RMEF provided funding for the project.

Since 1991, RMEF and its partners completed 425 conservation and hunting heritage outreach projects in Pennsylvania with a combined value of more than $25 million. These projects protected or enhanced 26,907 acres of habitat and opened or improved public access to 10,152 acres.

Video: Hunting a Battle Worn Monster Elk in Montana


It’s not just the people of Montana who are tough.

From Eastmans’:

“Head to the broken hills of Montana with Guy Eastman as he pursues rut weary bull elk. Much can change in the course of one night as Eastman learns on this hunt. Watch as he puts a 380 class trophy bull in it’s final bed.”

Video: Elk Hunting in Colorado


A Colorado bull elk hunt is definitely up there on many-a-hunter’s lists!

From Eastmans’:

“Guy Eastman hunts a nontypical Colorado elk. Antler growth is strong after a wet spring making for great fall hunting opportunity. Fall rain showers add to the advantage creating the perfect conditions for stalking and hunting elk.”

Video: Muzzleloader Hunting Big Bull Elk


Finally getting that elk tag!

From the video maker:

“After 11 years of waiting to draw this muzzleloader elk tag, Chris quickly began scouting with his hunting buddies to put in the work this tag deserved. With several good bulls on the trail camera, opening morning couldn’t come quick enough. The first day was full of close encounters only to have the second day go silent after the elk were pushed further down. Join Chris as he looks to shoot a big old bull on his hunt!”
