Wayne has guided elk hunters to records-class bulls, and taken elk in all nine western “elk states.” A recognized firearms authority and student of the rifle, he has shot elk with 36 different cartridges! Share his most memorable hunts! Get valuable tips not only on rifles, loads and optics, but on DIY hunting tactics — and how to choose an outfitter.
