Big Game Hunting Podcast

Dec 9, 2021

We have long time podcast listener Mark Floyd on the show with us today to talk about some of his recent elk hunting experiences out in Wyoming. We’ll talk more in detail about his background shortly, but Mark is from Georgia and has only really gotten into hunting during the past few years. We’re going to talk about how Mark ended up going on those elk hunts, the story of each trip, what he thought about hunting elk with the 6.5 Creedmoor vs the 300 Win Mag, some lessons he learned along the way, and what the future holds for him.
