My friend Carrie, the host of the HuntFishTravel podcast, has had a Russian Bear hunt on her bucket list for years. She and I have also been talking elk hunting for years. Last fall we actually got to go archery elk hunt together. It was a blast to pursue elk and share the high country experience with her. Of course, while she visited, she had to pick my brain about the Russian Bear hunt experience.
Get a drink and a snack and kick back and listen as I recant the story of my trip to the other side of the world. I share some advice, some history, and of course the fun of the hunt.
Last fall I spent a week hunting elk in the Colorado mountains with Mia, while I was there she told me all about her hunt in Russia. From getting travel documents last minute to hunting bears in the dark to sketchy Russian border crossings.
