Elevate Your Mindset with Bridger Miller

Elevate Your Mindset with Bridger Miller

January 1, 2020

Bridger Miller is a husband, father, and teacher/head swimming and diving coach at Kelly Walsh High School in Casper, WY. He's a former collegiate swimmer, current endurance athlete and avid shed hunter.  He also hunts as hard an anyone we've come across, but Bridger is obsessed with performance.  He says, "Performance is super important to all of us, whether it’s hunting or daily routine as a father, husband and professional. I enjoy trying to make the most of every opportunity. Limited time presents a unique challenge when hunting. Still have a lot to learn and I find enjoyment each season reflecting and trying to find ways to become a better hunter and outdoorsman. Most of these lessons come from failure... brutal but needed!"

So let's dive in with Bridger and work on elevating our mindset for 2020!

He has multiple Pope and Young entries from several states. For the past 20 years he has documented his adventures, writing for a variety of outdoor magazines and websites. He is the former editor and columnist for Extreme Elk Magazine. His first big game experience came when he was 19, bowhunting for the first time in Wyoming and harvesting a fork-horn mule deer. That solidified his passion for bowhunting. A few years later when he shot his first bull elk with a bow, a new obsession began. Ron is passionate about elk and is a life member of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and served years as a committee member and then Chapter Chairman for a couple of years. He also served on an elk working group for the Wyoming Game and Fish Department. Ron is from Cody, Wyoming, married with one son, who served in the Air Force for 6 years including two deployments. Ron spends 6-8 weeks a year bowhunting elk and other western game. He believes that hard work and persistence are vital to consistent success.
