Thanks to the funding that hunters provide through hunting license and tag sales, the state of Oregon has been able to release nearly 10,000 wild Rio Grande turkeys since 1975. These conservation efforts led by hunters have equated to a flourishing population of wild turkeys in the South West part of the state.
Thank you for tuning in to watch Kristy Titus' premier episode to the Pursue The Wild digital series. Within this episode, Kristy and her father Lewis pursue archery elk on public land in Oregon with an over the counter general season tag.
This episode is the heart of Kristy's family. Being in the backcountry together sharing time on the mountain, the miles traveled, close calls and missed opportunity. This is the essence to what drives Kristy and her father to return to the mountain year after year in pursuit of elk.
The family bond and friendships forged on the mountain and the memories that are created, are priceless. This is the greatest gift that comes from the hunt, this is our legacy in action. We hope that you enjoy this episode as much as Kristy and her father did creating it.
This is the life for those that Pursue The Wild.
Be Wild. Be Fearless. Do It All.
