Transition Wild | Archery Elk Hunt Recap with Garrett Roe

Posted from: https://audio.simplecast.com/c293a680.mp3

Today we have another returning guest, Garrett Roe where we talk about his 2018 archery elk hunt in Colorado. We cover everything from drawing the tag, to his August scouting trip, to the heart pounding encounters over the two weeks he spent in the mountains. Even though this hunt took place in a draw unit on public land, Garrett quickly realized that the hunting pressure and the elusiveness of elk remained just as high as OTC units. His determination and will to find and kill an elk with a bow on the final days is admirable, and he tells a cool story of the ultimate grind.

In this podcast we also talk about the many blown attempts and close opportunities that slipped through his fingers, as well as the final moments of a bull closing in and taking the shot. After many years of waiting and getting pushed back from point creep, he was able to fulfill a 15 year dream of taking a bull in Colorado. Garrett Roe is the owner of Heads Up Decoy, a maker of portable lightweight decoys for deer, elk, turkey, moose, and pronghorn.

GRAPHIC: Absolutely Brutal Snowmobile vs. Deer Collision

https://www.wideopenspaces.com/graphic-absolutely-brutal-snowmobile-vs-deer-collision/

Facebook

A collision between a snowmobile and a whitetail deer resulted in one of the more gory pieces of video that you’re likely to see.

Everyone outdoorsman knows that collisions between animals and vehicles happen far too often. The results are often catastrophic on both sides. When a snowmobile traveling at high speed strikes a deer, we shudder at the thought of what damage might result to both machine and driver, let alone the deer.

This video shows just such a collision. It is both explosive and surprising.

WARNING: Graphic footage in the video.

As the deer races onto the snowmobile trail, the driver has zero chance of avoiding it. He T-bones the small whitetail with such force that the deer’s back-half almost literally explodes, spraying tissue and innards into the air. It’s ugly and shocking.

But the video is also surprising because, from what we can see, the damage we might have expected to the driver and his snowmobile was thankfully about as minimal as could possibly be. He immediately slows and comes to a stop, gets off of his snowmobile with seemingly little after-effect from the collision, and checks the front of his machine. It appears to have suffered little if any damage.

Amazing. Surely the small size of the deer resulted in far less damage than what there might have been.

In any event, it’s a rough scene. If you’re a snowmobiler it is certainly worth reminding yourself to be alert and treat driving a snowmobile with at least the same defensive attitude and care as you do with your automobile.

Be safe out there this winter!
