RMEF World Elk Calling Content finalist Joe McCarthy knows a thing or two about bugling for bulls.

These longtime duck hunters discuss the ways they read ducks and make adjustments, including what calls they choose and how they blow them.

Her first-ever elk hunt. On public land. On opening day of rifle season. And she lands a 6x8 bull. The Wild Race star Jessica Ann grew up whitetail, turkey, small game and predator hunting in Wisconsin. She added waterfowling to her list of passions a decade ago. When she got bariatric weight loss surgery in 2020, she set a goal for herself: Go on an elk hunt and, in Jessica's words, "don't die." Traversing the steep Idaho terrain and taking down a massive bull checks that goal off Jessica's list. But that's not all. By the age of 30, she's made a name for herself as an outdoorswoman, hosts he ..read more

"I just want people to feel confident," Matt says on this episode of The Slayer Hunting Podcast. "And then I want people to be able to kill ducks." Easier said than done.
