Podcast Episode 166: The Ballad of the Modern Western Elk Hunter

Justin and Casey tell the tales of their 2023 elk season. They discuss hunting in Colorado, drawing tags, the mobility needed in the West, tools for a successful hunt, hunting in South Dakota, two trips to Montana to hunt, and so much more! We also previewed this podcast live on social media which was confusing and fun at the same time.
