From Southern Deer to Western Elk

Show Notes

On this episode of The Western Rookie Dan talks with Travis Thornton, a Louisiana native who has become a passionate elk hunter.

Travis started out as a kid hunting with dogs. He killed his first deer when he was 10 and has been fishing in the gulf since he was 8 or 9. From there he transitioned to a lease in West Texas then found a Missouri lease during college. Around 6 years ago he started elk hunting and it quickly became his number one outdoor passion. To date Travis has harvested two bulls and the desire he has for chasing elk is unmatched. Dan and Travis discuss everything from fishing the gulf to transitioning from southern deer to elk in the mountains.
