Waiting out a monsoon in Utah with @elijah.j.wallis The Red Bull’s probably weren’t needed after being woken up by what seemed like lightning striking the bridge we were under...

Excited to kick off the fall season chasing CA Blacktail bucks in the high country. Switching it up this year to a spot I’ve never been before trying to avoid smoke and fires. #Archery #Bowhunting #BowHunter #CA #Blacktail #Buck #HighCountry #PopeandYoung #Kifaru #KifaruLife #TytoKnives #MarsuialGear #KUIU #WildPlaces

My Greenland Muskox bull finally made its way to US soil a couple weeks ago. @aaronhunts_ and I were discussing how I wanted to mount him and I said I sure wish I would have got more photos of him straight on as I felt that was the best angle to show off these beasts! This is the closest photo I have to being straight on to see how he drops and hooks and see his mass. #Muskox #MuskoxMonday #Archery #Bowhunting #BowHunter #PopeandYoung #Kifaru #KifaruLife #KUIU #MarsupialGear #Swarovski #WildPlaces #GSCO #WSF #BowTech #BlackEagleArrows #VPAarchery #HuntingIsConservation

We often like to say we got lucky but I’d say @stikineguideservice and I made our own luck on this hunt as we ground out every hour of the hunt we had available to us and were met with an opportunity in the last hour of the hunt! We got to break in the new boat with it’s first buck as well. #SitkaBlacktail #AK #Blacktail #Alaska #Hunter #Hunting #GSCO #Buck #WildPlaces #FBF #HuntingIsConservation

My good friend @elijah.j.wallis took this cool management buck yesterday! 2.5 hour stalk in the blistering A zone July heat to stick this guy at 40 yards when he stood. I’ve hunted pretty close to half the NA Big Game species and these Blacktail deer with a bow is by far the hardest I’ve encountered yet! Congrats Eli. #Archery #Bowhunting #BowHunter #CaliforniaHunting #Hunter #Hunting #PopeandYoung #KUIU #PrimeArchery #BlackEagleArrows #MarsupialGear #Kifaru #KifaruLife #Blacktail #Buck #BuckSkin

Caught this guy at first light hammering the Barley. Put a stalk on him for a 30 yard quartering away shot.
