RMHC Elk Calling Seminar with Rockie Jacobsen, Michael Batease, and Kristy Titus- Archery Unlimited in Etna, WY
On July 16th I hit the road and headed to Etna, WY. I worked my day shift and drove as far as Bozeman on the 16th. The morning of the 17th came early and I was on my way to Etna to meet with fellow pro staffers Michael Batease and Kristy Titus as well as owner of Rocky Mountain Hunting Calls Rockie Jacobsen.
I pulled into Archery Unlimited around 11:30 and met with Rockie. It was great to finally meet him in person again. We visited for a bit then hit the range to shoot our bows for a bit. It was great to get a little shooting in as I haven't been doing near enough of it as of late. After shooting for a bit we cooled down in the archery shop and Michael and Kristy pulled in. Again it was great getting to meet up with everyone in person again. We shot our bows a little more and had a friendly 3D shoot.
After visiting a little more it was time to set up. After setting up it was time for the seminar. It was very eye opening and great to gain the knowledge that Rockie, Michael, and Kristy have when it comes to elk hunting. The seminar went great and got to talk a little bit about decoying and throw in other information when needed. This was my first seminar with RMHC so it was more of a chance to see how they like to do seminars. It was a great experience and a blast getting to hang out for a day and talk about elk hunting.
After the seminar we took everything down and relaxed for the evening. Everyone was pretty shot and tired after driving a long ways, some much further than others. Everyone crashed out somewhat early.
I was up early the next morning around 4 a.m. and hit the road back to home around 4:30. I made it home just in time to watch Lane so Leah could go to work. It was a fast trip but a fun one.
If you ever get the opportunity to sit in on a seminar put on by RMHC don't miss out. There is more information there than you can process, but it is information you need to help make you a better elk hunter.
