The difference between notching your tag or going home empty-handed from a hunt is usually determined by a few decisions or important moments. It is often only with hindsight that the outcome of the hunt can be understood by analyzing the decisive moments that led to the outcome — for good, or for bad.
Every episode in this Reverse-Engineering Hunting Success podcast series will feature a conversation with an experienced hunter and dissect a successful hunt, looking back to understand or "reverse engineer" the key decisions or other decisive moments that led to their success.
On this episode of our Reverse-Engineering Success series we speak with Brian ("BMack") McElrea about a Wyoming archery elk hunt. As you will hear, this story is filled with ups, downs, and unexpected turns.
