My favorite animal to hunt: Elk.  I love the physical aspect of it along with the nonstop mental game of trying to outsmart this huge animal and get him into archery range.

My favorite place to hunt: New Mexico.  From mountains to unending meadows, it offers just about every type of landscape imaginable.

My best hunting memory: It will forever be the first successful hunts with both of my kids. The only way you’ll know what I mean is if you’ve experienced it with your own children.

My favorite animal to hunt: Elk. If I was forced to hunt only one, it would have to be an Elk. Though my love and passion for Deer hunting (Whitetail and Mule Deer) runs deep and is strong, Elk hunting is a whole different ball game. The continuously mobile and very interactive style of hunting typically required to be successful in Elk hunting makes it hard to beat and almost always tests every single ounce of a hunter’s skill set.

My favorite place to hunt: New Mexico and Kansas. Dependent on what I’m going after my favorite places change. Elk Hunting, I’d prefer northern New Mexico. Deer and Turkey hunting, my favorite place is south central Kansas.

My best hunting memory: On a hunt a few years ago, where I was actually running camera on a hunt with Tim (my Co-Host) in KS where one of the other hunters in camp had a ‘handicap’ to say the least...his arms stopped at the elbow. No forearms, no hands. The fact that he was there on a rifle hunt and was, by his own admission, “more than capable of hunting on his own” with his BOLT ACTION rifle. Our intrigue and unspoken skepticism was tossed out the window when on the second day of the hunt, he shot his biggest buck ever, a beautiful 150” 10pt! I will never forget being there when he recovered his buck and seeing the genuine excitement on his face and being in awe of the perfectly placed shot he made on the deer from more than 150 yds out with his BOLT ACTION 30.06. It was inspiration in its rawest form and a hunting memory that I’ll never forget.

My favorite animal to hunt: Brown Bear

My favorite animal to bow hunt is the brown bear.. I have taken 3 Alaskan brown bears and 2 grizzly bears in my career and each hunt is more exciting than the last… The excitement of watching an apex predator close the distance on a remote beach is pure adrenaline. Bowhunting these dangerous bears requires nerves of steel and the challenge of getting close to a mature boar is often very difficult.

My favorite place to hunt: Africa

All the countries of southern Africa are amazing. Zimbabwe, Zambia, Namibia, Mozambique and South Africa offer amazing bowhunting opportunities. Everything about Africa is Adventurous…. The animals, the terrain, the climate.. even the sun and moon look bigger in the sky when your in Africa. The animals are all unique and there are many hunt-able species… I have traveled to Africa to bow hunt 46 times and been blessed to arrow Africa’s big six. Elephant, Hippo, Rhino, Cape Buffalo, Lion and Leopard.

My best hunting memory: Desert Sheep

Having been a TV bowhunter for 30 years….. I’ve gotten to go bowhunting a lot! I’ve been blessed to take well over 100 different animal species….. several of most.. including 60 whitetail bucks on video. My career is full of awesome hunting memories. One of my favorite hunts was a trip to Mexico for desert bighorn sheep. I had been to Mexico 3 times previous for sheep and not connected.. on this 4th trip I arrowed a fantastic ram the first afternoon of the hunt….. a ram that completed my 13 year quest to document the archery Super Slam on video.

So with one arrow…. I completed the wild Sheep archery Grand Slam and North American archery Super Slam. A pretty fantastic hunting memory!

My favorite animal to hunt: I grew up with whitetail and turkey being “the” animal that we hunted every year. Big Game, such as elk and moose were only a dream for me as a kid. Having the opportunities, I have been blessed with currently, the rocky mountain elk takes the cake for me hands down. From the sites to the sounds and the hunt itself, there is no other animal that gets me that adrenaline rush, like a 1000lb bugling bull elk.

My favorite place to hunt: We are fortunate to get to travel all over the US hunting all different types of animals. But for me, when I get to come home, be with my family and hunt what most would say is the toughest animal on the planet to hunt. Whitetail in Ohio is where I want to be.

My best hunting memory: My greatest memories in life are the ones spent hunting with family and friends no doubt. But the one that sticks on my head as #1 to this date and will probably remain there forever. Is the day I shot my first mule deer buck in Montana. It was with 2 of my best friends, Jason Matzinger and Jason Kalafut. I was hunting out west, which I had never done before and made a 1 mile stalk to the top of a butte that stood out like a sore thumb. With absolutely nothing else around it but sage and dirt, this buck sat in the shadows at the very top. I stalked to within 5 yards of that buck and made a perfect shot. My first western animal, an unbelievable hunt and episode 1 of our very first season which kicked off our television series. By far my best hunting memory and one that I am very thankful for.

My favorite animal to hunt: Being from the Northeast, Whitetail was always the most popular animal to hunt and to me the most challenging. Even after I chasing some different critters across the Country to me there is still nothing like playing a chess match with a big mature whitetail.

My favorite place to hunt: I always dreamed of chasing Elk as a kid so when I got to chance to hunt Elk in Montana I jumped at the opportunity, to this day there is not a trip or place I look forward to more.

My best hunting memory: My greatest memory is still my first Ohio whitetail hunt, I chased a certain buck for days having multiple encounters throughout the week. After hanging a set where I thought the buck was spending most of his time, I waited for the next morning planning to sit all day. At 10:00 in the morning I watched the buck come from 200 yards away right to the base of my tree, it was the oldest buck I had ever harvested and I was lucky enough to share that moment with my father. Looking back, I think that hunt is a big part of why I live in Ohio today.

My favorite place to hunt: I’ve been fortunate to hunt some of the most beautiful places all over the country, but if I could only chose one I’d have to pick my home state of Alabama. The whitetails here are so elusive. I’ll put an Alabama whitetail up against any other whitetail in the country when it comes to hunting them.

My best hunting memory: While my first buck ever taken which was a spike in Alabama will always be one of my best hunting memories, I’d have to say that my favorite is my Alberta buck taken in 1999. Seeing him bedded up with a doe under an irrigation pivot and no way to get to him had my heart pounding. Hours later the buck and doe finally got up. I was able to set up in a position where I’d thought they go to try and get back into cover. And when he got in range the last thing I remember is the cracking of my bullet echoing in the distance and the massive 192” buck hitting the ground.

My favorite animal to hunt: From an early age I've been consumed with hunting elk. My dad started taking me with him to Colorado when I was only 7 years old and that lit a fire in me that's never burned out. My favorite time of year to hunt elk is during September during the rut.

My favorite place to hunt: My favorite state to hunt elk in is New Mexico. Last year I was lucky enough to shoot my best bull to date in western new mexico. New Mexico is a place I try to go back to each and every year for elk.

My best hunting memory: My best hunting memory came last year when I finally got to wrap my tag around a giant bull in New Mexico. For years I had got so close to so many giant bulls with my bow but for one reason or another I never got it done on a giant. Finally last year in New Mexico it all came together and I was finally able to put my tag on a world class bull.

My favorite animal to hunt: When it comes to hunting, chasing bugling bull elk during the rut with your bow is in a league all its own. In terms of sheer anticipation, adrenaline and magnificence, nothing else really compares.

My favorite place to hunt: That’s tough because I appreciate so many aspects of so many different settings. If I had to narrow it to one setting, I have to say anything above timberline in the Rockies. That’s still fairly broad, but it’s as specific as I’m willing to get.

My best hunting memory: I have several favorite memories, but if I had to pick one I’d go with the time my dad arrowed his biggest bull elk ever on my birthday. We worked our tails off that day, but it was my best birthday ever!

My favorite animal to hunt: Obviously whitetails however, sheep have become a close second and there’s nothing like spot and stalk mule deer hunting!

My favorite place to hunt: Iowa! There’s no place like home! Also, every dime that we have ever made has gone to making our habitat the best it can possibly be!

My best hunting memory: This is a tough one as they all mean something special and I know it will just keep getting better as Cameron and Raygen start hunting with us. I love when Tiffany shot her first deer as she started to share her passion with me. But if I had to pick just one, my Kodiak brown bear was amazing!

My favorite animal to hunt: Just like Lee I love to hunt whitetails especially since that was the first animal that I ever harvested and there’s just something about being able to walk out you back door and hunt. But I also love heading out west every fall and have developed a passion for hunting elk!

My favorite place to hunt: Iowa! Just like Lee, there’s no place like home and no other place that I’d rather be hunting especially when I’m with Lee! But I also love the mountains.

My best hunting memory: Every hunt has a memory all of them are great! It’s so hard to just pick one! My favorites always include when Lee and I are out there together no matter if we are successful or not. Of course as our kids get older I know it will just get better as Cameron and Raygen start hunting!

My favorite animal to hunt: There is nothing like the bugling of a bull elk, especially at close range when you know a shot is imminent. All other bowhunting is a notch below elk hunting.

My favorite place to hunt: That's like asking which of my sons I like best but I'd probably vote for the Yukon Territories because I love true wilderness and there is lots of that there.

My best hunting memory: Using a Larry D. Jones elk call to lure in my first bull elk stands out as a watershed moment for me. I wrote my first magazine article for Bowhunter Magazine on that experience and it led to a life of elk hunting and writing.

My favorite animal to hunt: For both of us it has always been whatever we are hunting at the time. We are fortunate to have hunted many different species and everyone is unique from bullfrogs to bears we love it all.

My favorite place to hunt: Our home state of Colorado has to be our favorite and more specifically on our own ranch. So fortunate to be able to hunt multiple species from your backdoor from Waterfowl, Upland Game, Turkey, Whitetail and Mule deer, Elk, Bear, Antelope, Mountain lion as well as tons of Small Game.

My best hunting memory: My first deer. I was able to shoot it with my dad years ago.
