Our client with an outstanding antelope taken with us last weekend on a hosted hunt in New Mexico. We shot four great antelope but this giant was in a class of his own. Taking the hunt down to the wire and prepared to go home empty handed, the client spotted this gigantic buck from well over a mile and stalked to within shooting distance. This great buck had not been seen before, though this ranch produces bucks over the Boone and Crockett minimum each year. Thank you again for the trust and we look forward to finding another one like it next season!
Did you know that the Rocky Mountain Elk has the largest antlers out of all the 6 elk subspecies?
If you knew there were elk in the east period , you knew more than I did! It’s ridiculous to remember that for the majority of my life, I had no idea there were elk on my side of the country period! I was heading out of town with friends when someone pointed out an elk crossing sign. I actually thought this was some kind of joke originally. If you dig in, the over all history of elk is very intriguing to say the least. Along with countless other fun fact,learning information like this is apart of what makes hunting a lifestyle, not a hobby! I grew up unaware of many things regarding whitetail deer. For example, I was unaware of deer shedding their antlers and grow back in velvet. Realizing the value of knowledge, this is why the RMEF and many more are so valuable to the Hunter and none hunters! .
Have I been elk hunting? Not yet! Do you need an elk hunt success story to be apart of the @rmef_official
, no you don’t! Thinking about the future of elk hunting with my children in mind , means supporting RMEF is a must! With over 7 millions acres now protected , the future looks bright! Ways to pitch in include becoming a member(find your local chapter) , volunteering in various ways, shop the RMEF (like my jacket) ! .
All things come in time! I’ll get to hear my first bugle and experience an elk hunt when It’s time comes. Until then, I look forward to my bugle magazines and email updates and information!

How do you protect the herd when your not around? Get a donkey..and name him Guss
with and monster scrub bulls and on of our trackers from our buffalo outfit.
Looking a little sunburnt on the last day of the hunt. Such a unique experience to hunt on traditional lands - we are blessed to have this access!

Today’s show is a recap of the Rookies first elk hunting trip to Colorado. The guys get together to chat about the day to day of elk hunting and they discuss some of the highs and the lows that hunters face while out in the mountains. Neil talks about his first ascent up the steep Colorado mountains and the potentially dangerous situation he was in facing with dehydration and exhaustion. Chad talks about his first encounter with a bull elk and the lost opportunity. Gus and the guys all discuss the epic battle they engaged in the last night of the hunt that ended in the elk winning due to the loss of shooting light. After the hunt wrap up each guy from the crew talks about the gear they will leave behind next year and the gear they won’t go without and finally each guy remembers their favorite moments for the week. Enjoy the show.
It takes plenty of courage to stand this close to a buffalo, even with a gun in hand. Just yesterday, we read in the news that a guy had been gored by one of these up in the Northern Territory. They certainly put the wind up you when they give you that angry stare. But also, hands down, one of the most adrenaline pumping hunts we’ve ever done. #iamhunter #buffalohunting
When I was in Uganda a few years back, I was lucky enough to see a pride of lions on a safari. There’s never a guarantee you’ll come across them. You’ll likely see giraffes and elephants but you have to work harder to find the lions. The first one we saw was hidden in a big bush and nearly impossible to find. Today I saw on the news some jerkoff politician posted pics of his big game hunting trip where he not only killed a giraffe and a lion, but a family of baboons including the young ones as well. It hit me particularly hard because once you’ve seen them in their natural environment, you really realize you’d have to be a soulless a-hole to travel that far, with a gun, to shoot these huge majestic animals for fun. It’s depressing to understand not everyone sees it that way. And it also nags at me that I should probably seriously reconsider my own carnivore ways in general. That’s a much larger discussion I’m not necessarily looking to debate on social media. But I did want to post this pic i took that I came across today. ✌🏼
I don’t believe I ever posted a good image of this piece after it was finished. Passing through, Oil on Wood, 6x12.
Australia’s wild brumby, this stallion chased our vehicle for several km’s stamping and kicking up dust if we stopped. Often showing that white wild eye look taunting us to a challenge. Nothing domestic about this guy %100 wild and %100 ready to stomp you into the dirt if you gave him the chance - yep that’s the real Disney right there.
Awesome to see!
Up Close & Personal or Give Yourself a Little Space.......What’s Your Stalker Style?
! He wrote, “Thanks for a great product. I had so many does come within 5-10 feet with your decoy. This buck and the one he was with came to 20 yards with no hesitation, providing me with an easy shot.” #StalkerDecoys
CHAMOIS... Heading to Spain in 2019 to chase Cantabrian Chamois.
Final plans should be laid by the end of the week, DM or E-mail if you’re interested in joining on the hunt of a lifetime.
So stoked my man filled his tag on an incredibly rare hunt. @akleeper
and I struggled with this one.. very, very different than anything we’ve ever done before. It is essentially a scavenger hunt with guns. After fighting our way around figuring out who’s property is private, what’s open, (all military land that is normally accessible for this hunt was closed), where the herd is, and being sooo frustrated watching hundreds of bison run by on private property, Chris finally downed this 7 to 8-year-old cow. Very beautiful animal and will be some delicious eating! Proud of you!
