Mike Ellig, owner of Black Gold Sights gets to do a lot of hunting, and Marc wondered what his favorite critter was.
Well, here’s an except from his podcast telling us exactly what he loves to hunt most…. and we’re not surprised by his answer.
“[…] I think it’s important that we acknowledge as bow hunters we all have certain things that make us unique as a hunter, and then there are certain critters that catch our hearts. And bowhunting can be such a personal experience that I find it interesting to find out what your personal experience is about like.
So let me ask you, number 1 is what’s your favorite critter? What’s the critter that haunts you every night and has for a long time?” -Marc Warnke
“Well, being from Montana I think it’s pretty tough to beat elk hunting. I mean there’s just nothing like being in close and having those bulls bugling and you’re looking through the trees and all of a sudden you see some bull walking down through the timber at you.
I mean if that doesn’t get your heart going you might as well go pick up some other sport because that –” -Mike Ellig
“Give it up there ain’t much higher to go, huh?” -Marc Warnke
“But I just love variety too, Mark. I’ve got some buddies and we go out antelope hunting, we start the 15th of August here in Montana and we always take a trip out to eastern Montana on antelope early there. And I usually save September for elk and then in October and November I’m on the whitetails and doing that and I love to split my season up like that.
And I get a good 3-4 months of hunting that way and just I love the change and love the variety. And I just really enjoy all of it.” -Mike Ellig
