A Mother & Son Bond on Wyoming’s Call of the Wild, Wednesday on Sportsman Channel
New Berlin, Wis. by (Ammoland.com)-
There is a nothing like the adrenaline rush of a first hunt – especially when it’s an elk hunt. Sportsman Channel, the leader in outdoor TV for the American sportsman, is proud to give viewers an up-close view of a very unique “first hunt” on Wyoming’s Call of the Wild.
There is nothing ordinary about this elk hunt as a mother of four and her son experience hunting for the very first time at the spectacular Wagonhound Ranch in Douglas, WY. The results are “spot-on” and you can watch Wyoming’s Call of the Wild on Wednesday, May 2 at 7 p.m. EST.
The cold December day begins at the Ranch as Mary Billiter (mother) and Kyle Thomas (son) prepare for their elk hunt with shooting practice. Mother and son are on their first guided hunt and the rolling hills of Wyoming present a sturdy challenge of hiking in search of elk. Billiter’s patience pays off as she spots a cow elk and makes a direct harvest for her first cow elk.
As the day winds down, Thomas experiences the ups and downs with the hunting, but is not deterred. After spotting another cow elk, he takes aim from 280 yards and connects for his first harvest on a 400 pound cow elk. His persistence was impressive and his results gave gratification to the entire group!
“Kyle is a perfect example of never giving up and staying dedicated to a goal,” said Craig Conrad, Host of Wyoming’s Call of the Wild. “I really think the outdoors forms bonds between people and Kyle and Mary are living proof. It was a privilege working with the Wyoming Game and Fish Department, Orion Entertainment and Sportsman Channel on this episode.
