If you are a hardcore bowhunter who dreams of huge, screaming bull elk, and of hunting them on your own on public land, then you don’t want to miss the fall-series premier of Bowhunter TV! After 18 years of applying, producer Danny Farris and his dad finally draw the public land elk tag of their dreams and head into the high desert country of northwest Colorado. This is public land, DIY action at its very best with two experienced elk hunters chasing monster bulls in their home state. And our father and son team’s trophy tags prove to be absolutely worth the wait, delivering point blank encounters, incredibly broad-beamed bulls, and memories to last a lifetime.
“This hunt proved to be everything we’d hoped for, and more!” said Farris. “Dad and I took a couple of great bulls, but what really made it special for me was sharing the excitement of so many incredible encounters. I’ve been following my dad through the elk woods since I was a little boy, and when it comes to calling elk in close, he typically has ice running through his veins. On this hunt, however, I got to see his ice melt! I’ll never forget it!”
In addition to amazing elk action—and priceless elk-hunting insights—viewers get solid gear advice from host Mike Carney and Equipment Editor Tony Peterson, who will share tips on peep-sight selection and building a bowhunting “possibles bag.” Pro archer Randy Ulmer will teach you how he preps a bow for the backcountry, and Editor Curt Wells will give away his personal elk-calling system.
Team Farris’ epic elk hunt delivered more action than we could fit into just one episode, so plan to catch Part 1 when it premiers at July 5 at 9 p.m. Eastern on The Sportsman Channel, and then the grand finale on Friday, July 12. You won’t want to miss a single moment.
