Early season elk hunting success lies solely in the details and this especially holds true for public land hunters that are packing over the counter tags. With August quickly approaching, your master checklist should nearly be complete. So, have you digitally surveyed the area you’ll be hunting? Have you spoke with local DNR officers, tracked weather patterns, checked drought conditions, located OHV trails and formulated your hunting plan? If not, don’t worry because this week on The Revolution with Jim & Trav we’re Elk Bound and Down and we’ve assembled four of America’s top leading elk experts to help you finalize your hunting game plan. These experts consist of: Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation President and CEO, David Allen, Kristy Titus, featured member of RMEF Team Elk, Randy Newberg host of Leupold’s Fresh Tracks with Randy Newberg and Steve Nessl, Yamaha’s ATV and Side-by-Side Group Marketing Manager. The Revolution is presented by Outdoor Channel, Sportsman Channel, World Fishing Network and MyOutdoorTV.

If your hopes of hunting elk this season were crushed when you didn’t get drawn for a tag, that doesn’t mean there aren’t some great elk hunting opportunities still available. Randy Newberg is the host of Leupold's Fresh Tracks with Randy Newberg on Sportsman Channel and a public land hunting expert. Randy talks to Jim and Trav this week about elk hunting in Colorado. “Colorado has over the counter tags, and the largest elk herd in the country, with 23 million acres of public land to run around and chase these elk.” Randy will talk over the counter tags and creating a game plan before you ever get to your destination. He’ll also discuss deciding what animal to harvest and what dictates a shooter bull for him. Tune in for all this and to find out about Elk Talk Live, a live weekly forum where Randy answers questions from the public.

The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation works tirelessly to help ensure the future of elk, as well as other animals, and their habitat. To date they have protected and enhanced more than 7 million acres of land and opened or secured more than 1 million acres of land for public access for hunting and other outdoor recreation. This week David Allen, President and CEO of Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, joins The Revolution to discuss the need for prime habitat in order for elk to grow and reach their full potential. “To get a big trophy bull elk, a lot of things have to happen in his favor. But probably the single most important element is the habitat that he lives in. It’s got to be prime habitat.” Tune in to find out how RMEF plans to enhance even more habitat with their Managed Lands Initiative and how you can help.

Understanding and imitating elk vocalizations is something that takes time and practice to perfect. Kristy Titus, a featured member of RMEF Team Elk on Outdoor Channel, is a seasoned pro and joins The Revolution this week with a look at her line of elk calls and how to use them to engage with elk on your next hunt. “Elk have such a diverse language. You can judge a lot about an elk’s behavior, his mood, what he’s doing, and what the herd dynamics are, just based off of a call alone.” Tune in for more on vocalizations, Kristy’s line of calls, as well as her digital series Pursue the Wild.

Debuting in June, Yamaha introduced the all-new Kodiak 450 to their line-up of ATVs. Yamaha’s ATV and Side-by-Side Group Marketing Manager, Steve Nessl, joins The Revolution this week to talk about the new Kodiak 450. “We call it a Utility ATV, but that almost doesn’t do it justice,” says Steve. “Our new Kodiak 450: fuel injected engine, On-Command 4WD, Ultramatic automatic transmission – all starting at under $6,000.” Find out more about the all-new Kodiak 450, as well as Yamaha’s partnership with National Hunting & Fishing Day where they will be giving away a Kodiak 450 to one lucky winner.
