This week we had the extreme pleasure to sit down with the one and only Larry D Jones of Oregon. Larry is 79 years young and has a literal lifetime's experience of bowhunting, and is still getting after it to this day. We talk about his recent scouting trips for his upcoming elk hunt, as well as a much anticipated opportunity to chase Alaskan/Yukon moose this coming fall! Larry started bowhunting in 1961. Back then if you bowhunted, you did so with a recurve or longbow because that's all there was. Over the years Larry has held to his passions and has enjoyed chasing critters all across North America and the dark continent of Africa. Great visit with a great gentleman!

Woodsmanship, Ep 92
56:54On this episode we discuss something that is often overlooked, bow hunting big bucks vs bow hunting deer. We all love to dream about that big trophy buck slipping into bow range, but depending on where you live or hunt or what your perspective is will define what the word "trophy" means. Any deer taken with a bow and arrow under fair chase is more than qualified to be called a trophy. It's easy to forget that in todays constant barrage of social media posts and advertisements. On this episode, Alan touches on some of this as well as the difference in strategies for hunting "trophy" deer.
