About Us

Welcome to the Baxter Bowman Podcast! If you're looking for strategies, gear, and stories that will make you a better backcountry elk hunter, you're in the right place. We're independent, unsponsored, and unbiased so we can give you straight up, detailed advice about what works and what doesn't.For our first series, I walk my co-host and mentee, Josh, through everything he needs to be successful on his first over the counter, public land bowhunt for Elk this fall. It's based on the "Hunt Elk in 2020" series of articles on BaxterBowman.com with even more detail.While we focus on elk hunting, we can't help but talk about our other back country adventures like deer hunting, fly fishing, backpacking, upland game birds (chukar, quail, and more), and more. If you're a Western Hunter and you want to learn as much as possible, this is your show.
