ElkShape Podcast EP 67 - Spring Bear Q & A

April 15, 2019

 I love talking about spring bear hunting, and who better to chat with than my very own Father and partner in crime, Rod Staton.  My dad and I have been doing public land spring bear hunting in Idaho since 2007.  We've learned so much together and had some incredible adventures along the way.  Today, we tackle some listener questions on spring bear hunting, topics like where to find bears, how to glass for bears, baiting techniques, and the best times to hit the mountain.

ElkShape Podcast EP 66 - Train To Hunt

April 12, 2019

Today we're recording with longtime friend Kenton Clairmont of Train To Hunt.  We have a rich history, in fact I know Kenton since 2004.  We talk about the old days when we started a gym together called CrossFit Spokane Valley (I still own and operate) and how we started Train To Hunt (he still owns and operates).  We talk about business, fitness, training, elk hunting and our families.  Kenton and I have always been able to pick up where we left off, and he's one of the most down to earth people I know.

This was a fun podcast to record, we go in great depth on what Train To Hunt Challenges are all about and how he's going to help out with next ElkShape Camp.

We are chatting with Alishia Zemlicka today.  She's the real deal when it comes to hunting and fitness.  She runs a Day Spa out of Bozeman, MT and is a nutrition coach, crossfitter, and huntress.  We have a blast talking bear stories, shed hunting, elk hunting and eating for performance.

Alishia is a die hard bowhunter, she shoots leagues, 3D tourneys, shed hunts way more than me, and consistently fills her freezer up with wild game each fall.  I really enjoy getting to know her and her energy is contagious, enjoy!

ElkShape Podcast EP 62 - Josh Boyd

ElkShape Podcast EP 62 - Josh Boyd

March 18, 2019

Here's what you need to know on this episode, Josh Boyd resides in Northwest Montana and is in his mid-forties.  He is probably one of the most highly regarded DIY backcountry bowhunters that I know.  He's written hundreds of articles for publications and websites on numerous topics that pertain to hunting out West.  Josh is a super humble dude, but it was very special to talk one-on-one in person and record this episode.  We were at a crowded coffee shop at the time of this recording, but the information we cover is incredible for both rookie and veteran elk hunters.

Josh works as a biologist and has logged more than a lifetime of experience in the woods.  He's a woodsman, student, father, and teacher.  Your ears need to perk up on this episode, we cover some next level elk hunting tactics.

ElkShape Podcast EP 61 - LIVE from ElkShape Camp

ElkShape Podcast EP 61 - LIVE from ElkShape Camp

March 11, 2019

What started as an idea, quickly escalated to a reality this weekend.  20 humble, hungry and positive elk hunters made their way to Spokane Valley, WA for 3 days for the inaugural ElkShape Camp.  I was joined by some of the most amazing humans as subject matter experts to help this camp knock the socks off of the attendees.  Thank you doesn't quite cut the mustard.

This camp was supposed to impact and elevate everyone's game, but ultimately it made me understand the importance of encouragement, humility, and positivity.  So thank you all for making me a better version of myself.
We leverage elk hunting to make ourselves more disciplined on family, faith, finances, fitness and elk hunting.  We talked about using your elk hunting filter to elevate every aspect in your life.  We are lucky to call ourselves elk hunters, and it is easily the best excuse to wake up earlier, eat better, lead stronger, clean up our diet, love and serve more, and stay focused on our priorities throughout the year.
 
I'm joined by 3 absolute elk hunting studs as we recorded at my house after day 1 of the ElkShape Camp.  Were joined by Dirk Durham @TheBugler Ryan Lampers @SthealthyHunter and Willi Schmidt @purehunting_offical

ElkShape Podcast EP 60 - LIVE Q&A with a Rookie Elk Hunter from the Midwest

March 4, 2019

Jason Campbel @jason.campbell.bowhunt sent me a dozen or so questions on how to prepare for his inaugural elk hunt out West with 3 buddies.  I thought it would be a cool idea to go over his preliminary questions live on this podcast and coach him through the process of narrowing down a state, narrowing down an area, and all the unseen logistics that he'll need to be aware of.  Jason is a stellar dude with tons of humility and hunger to go West and experience some fantastic public land elk hunting.  If you're like Jason and are dreaming of doing this one day, why not now?  I hope to help you crush the learning curve when it comes to elk hunting and use elk hunting as an excuse to have more discipline in your life and become the best version of yourself!

ElkShape Podcast EP 59 - Chasing Longtails

ElkShape Podcast EP 59 - Chasing Longtails

February 25, 2019

After many years of saving up for a Mountain Lion Hunt and hustling several outfitters to work out some sort of arrangement, I got the call I've been waiting for.  As a resident of Washington State you cannot use dogs to hunt Mountain Lions like you once were able to.  Lion numbers are growing and management is extremely difficult without the use of dogs.  I have been hoping to find an outfitter in Idaho that could help me achieve my bucket list hunt of hunting cats with dogs, and I finally got the best hound guy to return my phone call and take me out for lion hunting.  Mike from Longtail Outfitters is a 25 year old houndsman who runs a legit operation out of northern Idaho.

We linked up today to talk about our hunt, his operation and the biology and behavior of mountain lions.  We also get into hunting spring bear and public land DIY bear hunts in northern Idaho.  We also cover elk hunting tactics and some mistakes folks make when coming out West to hunt elk with archery equipment.  This is a fun episode, thanks for listening!
