On this Episode of Gritty Bowmen we hang out with my uncle Kevin Call--joint owner of High Point Outfitters in Arizona. Kevin runs highpoint with his son Blake and their longtime friend John Adams. Kevin knows Arizona--he’s been hunting Arizona since the 70’s. 

I grew up watching my uncle Kevin hunt all over the West killing monster mule deer, elk, antelope and more. I grew up seeing photos of his hunts and his hunting stories in magazines and hearing hunting stories at family reunions. I can still remember the first time I walked into his giant garage--there were deer and elk antlers from floor to ceiling of all the animals he’s taken. To me, those antlers represent a mountain of time spent in the outdoors and a vast amount of collected experiences. In this podcast Uncle Kevin shares his thoughts on hunting AZ. My Dad and Kevin share some special memories of hunting Arizona in areas like the Kaibab and the Arizona Strip when they were younger. We talk about guiding and being an outfitter and why he does it. 

And we learn about Kevin’s favorite game camera--after all, High Point Outfitters runs about 200 game cameras all year. Coincidentally, I bought a couple of the cameras recommended after recording this podcast and I’m quite pleased with their performance.

If you’re listening to this podcast you might want to take a moment to watch the beginning to see some pictures of some amazing Arizona elk, deer and antelope.

In this podcast Brian Call and the fellow Gritty Bowmen, Ben Morris and Anthony Spencer share the story of their 2015 Elk Hunt. They ultimately end up with a Warrior. The antler in his shoulder and missing antler were just a few of the clues to this old bull's life.  - Stay Gritty

Which type of Hunting Partner are you? In typical Aron Snyder fashion he has come up with some different types. For example "The Grass is Always Greener Than Syndrome Guy" - There is always going to be something better over the next ridge. Or "Mr. Rogers" - He's always happy and positive to the point of annoyance for some. Or are you the "Through Hiker"? All go, no quit. Or "The Hunting Nazi"? He shoots everything out from under you. He's the first guy to break rank. Find out which one you are and which type of partners you have.

The share the story of how Chris Pascua of Is It September Yet, donated his raffle prize --a brand new Hoyt bow--to Wishes For Warriors. The bow was auctioned off that night and raised more than $1,000 for Wishes for Warriors--adding significantly to the total dollars that evening. And Jason and Corey share a few parting elk hunting tips before the conversation is over. 

Lastly, we sit down with our good friend Kody Kellom and huge FDFT supporter, Mike Crawford. These two men share their passion for the tour and why it’s more than just a collection of movies for them. And they tell us what they think makes a good film and more.
