Default "Chasing a Dream" My 2018 OTC Elk Hunt Recap

Adam and I spent 9 days hiking and hunting in the mountains of Colorado for archery elk (plus Adam had a bear tag). I have a lot of footage and photos from the hunt, but I wanted to put together a short video summarizing what this hunting adventure meant to me.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Up9_2aTYYec

I will be putting together more detailed hunt recaps, reviews and other videos from this trip, so be sure to subscribe to the channel!

I'd love to hear your feedback - both here and on YouTube.
