Episode 43 Show Notes:
On this episode of Gritty Bowmen, Aron and I were supposed to talk about Ethical Shot distance. But instead, we got side-tracked on a few tangents and completely left the reservation. In this podcast we actually talk about hunting industry camo patterns--Aron makes a few jokes--no offense intended. We talk about what’s going on at Kifaru lately. And we promise that our next episode will, in fact, cover ethical shot distance. Please excuse the poor audio quality of my microphone in this podcast--I screwed up.

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.
