The last trip of my 2013 season is upon me, and as I head for the hills I recall some of the season's most engaging moments. And focus on a mission to finish what the previous trip started. Written, produced and narrated by Bryan Huskey @fishbitemedia @skylinespodcast
Wired to Wander Ch 5 "Dead Reckoning"
Resuming the tracking of a big bull elk I arrowed in 2013. There is a lot to think about while crawling along the forest floor looking for drops of blood.

Chapter 4 resumes my Idaho archery elk hunting season of 2013. Note that this Wired to Wander series is produced as a video series, and in some instances captions display audio that is difficult to hear. So hop over to YouTube to see the video, or listen to the audio portion alone here via podcast.
For those who are listeners of this podcast series, I’m excited to add a visual element to my storytelling efforts. In addition to recorded essays, I’m also producing a series of short films called “Wired to Wander” that will chronicle the visual elements of my archery elk seasons from around 2012 to the present.

This essay is a look back at my 2016 archery elk season and what really kicked off a formalized effort to share complete accounts of my hunting seasons with audiences beyond my close friends.

(And that actually goes way back, even before the social adoption of email, to the 90’s when I’d haul photo albums around with me!)

#33 "1995 In The Beginning"
The year was 1995. I had a good paying job and owned my own truck. I’d just graduated high school and moved out of the house. Life for me was shifting gears and really opening up!
Following my first home-town summer as an adult in Bend, Oregon, September found me pursuing new and exciting endeavors that would shape the rest of my life; like community college. And archery hunting.
My first archery season began in the pine forests of an area South of Bend called China Hat. All summer I’d blazed down the endless miles of logging and forest service roads of the region, and in doing so had deduced areas with highest traffic of elk.
