    Eastman's TV Wilderness Elk 2 part Hunt

    I want to thank Eastman's for the great 2 episode series for Dan Pickar's Wyoming wilderness elk hunt that aired last week and this week. I think this is what outdoor tv should be. The features of interviews of the Wyoming Game and Fish and National Park Service personnel regarding grizzly bears and wilderness areas was a great addition. Even some demonstrations were thrown in. If you missed it this time around, it will air again Feb. 15th and 22nd at 9 PM Mountain time on the Outdoor Channel.

    It was very informative, but I didn't like how he hit the first bull, and failed to show proper follow-up. It was obviously a non-fatal hit, but they just kind of glazed over that part.

    This was a awesome episode. The info from the wardens throughout the shows was very interesting and I enjoyed the format.

    There was no blood on the arrow and the broadhead was broken out of the insert when it hit a branch of the dead tree.
    When all the trees have been cut down, when all the animals have been hunted, when all the waters are polluted, when all the air is unsafe to breathe, only then will you discover you cannot eat money.

    I too enjoyed this 2 part series! I'd love to see more episodes like this. The only thing that would make it better is if Dan would send me a pm detailing when 'our' next hunt is...

    Yeah, they weren't very clear on what happened. He initially said he thought he made a good hit.

    There's a lot of choreography that goes on, especially in a professional production such as this I am sure that there is much that isn't shown or covered during the editing phase. I would hope that the other unseen guy (besides the cameraman) has a honker rifle at the ready besides the bear spray that Dan has on his hip. That said, this was an exceptional episode.

    It was a great show and congratulations Dan on a great hunt. I would love to see more of those late season Cody area migration type hunts.
    Do you know what Jim Bridger said about the Indians? " Just when your not seeing any is about the time they are fixing to get the thickest"

    Thanks for bringing this up! From what I could see, the arrow hit a twig and glanced off him. I could not see the rest of the bull, only his vitals at that angle because of the hill crest when I shot. When he turned to go, I saw the arrow tumbling down the hill along him. It was weird. To this day I honestly don't know exactly what happened and don't know how I didn't kill that bull. One of the few times it left me scratching my head! Glad you guys like the episode!
