EP 142: The Life of a Wolf Hunter with Gus Thoreson. While spending several winters in the backcountry trapping and hunting wolves, Gus studied and learned a lot about wolf behavior and tendencies. Wolves are a very smart predator that are efficient in being unseen killers. A wolf hunt is one of the most exhausting hunts, both mentally and physically and yields the lowest success rates of most any hunts in the west. By learning to better understand wolves, Gus has found quite a bit of success on harvesting wolves. This is an informative podcast for anyone interested in wolf hunting.
Change Creates Opportunity. We often detest change and the pains of having our favorite hunts and hunting areas affected. Although it's not easy to embrace change we should always look for new opportunities created by those changes. Sometimes a new hunt date, a longer season, new tag numbers, new drawing procedures by a state, can play to our benefit if we pay attention. If we as hunters can be observant, change can sometimes lead to some of our best opportunities. This episode focuses on a lot of changes and highlights new ways to look at some of those changes.
In this episode of the Epic Outdoors Podcast we talk about the Nevada guide draw and the benefits of applying with an outfitter if you plan on going guided anyway. We also dive into some deep conversation on hunting trucks, life patterns, and plenty of joking around. We will be headed to the Sheep Show as well as the Western Hunting and Conservation Expo. Come see us there.
