Titus's seminar, Making the Shot of a Lifetime, discussed positional shots in hunting scenarios. “Positional shooting is a skill that is often overlooked by most hunters, and has surely contributed to many passed shots on trophies that otherwise could have been easily made with a little bit of training,” said Titus.  “I took attendees through the basics of how to gain stability from almost any position you could come across while afield.” 

Discussing how to build a solid shooting position from the ground up, fundamentals of marksmanship to include natural point of aim. Other topics covered, selecting a natural object for a support, how to properly use shooting sticks and tripods and more.

Kansas Elk Numbers Rise

Kansas is well-known as home to a thriving population of whitetail deer but is also home to a small population of free-ranging Rocky Mountain Elk.

In this episode of Tips From The Wild, Kristy Titus shares how elk populations have been restored to the Kansas Flint Hills. And the efforts that the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation has done in the area to benefit all wildlife, including the growing elk population.

Hunters, Whitetails & Conservation

In the latest episode of Pursue The Wild, Hunters, Whitetails and Conservation, Kristy Titus ventures to Kansas in pursuit of whitetail deer. During the episode, she takes a look back to the early 1900's, where whitetail deer populations were rapidly declining.

Today, thanks to the North American Model for Wildlife Conservation, spearheaded by hunters and the support of organizations like The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, whitetail deer numbers exceed 32 million nationwide. This is a true story of how hunters are the first crusaders in conservation.

2018 Season Sizzle Reel

Season 2 of Pursue The Wild, Presented by Ruger, was nothing short of epic. From hunting in Dall Sheep in the Northwest Territories to Mid-West Whitetail, and everything in-between. In celebration of these incredible memories afield, we are presenting this 2018 season sizzle reel. It is my hope that you all find inspiration in the moments and Pursue The Wild. And as always, thank you for your continued support.

Myers Ranch Public Access Project

Covering more than one million acres, the Little Missouri National Grassland in western North Dakota is the largest such grassland in the United States. However, getting to it is a real challenge in places because of surrounding pieces of checkerboard private lands.

Glenn Myers and his family own one of those pieces of private land—a ranch that borders the Little Missouri River. It’s also offers prime habitat for elk, bighorn sheep, whitetail and mule deer, mountain lions and other wildlife. Struggling with ongoing deer raids on his haystacks, Myers reached out to North Dakota Game and Fish for help.

The state suggested he enlist his ranch in the North Dakota’s Private Land Open to Sportsmen programs. RMEF stepped up too, footing the bill for 20 percent of the cost. The result is a 10-year public access agreement so the public can hunt both his 1,700-acre ranch and the thousands of acres of public land beyond. Opening and improving public access is a key facet of RMEF’s conservation mission.

To learn more about the sites and boundaries of RMEF access projects near you or your favorite hunting area, turn on the RMEF layer in the onX Hunt App.

Team VTAC Podcast with Kyle Lamb

It’s my honor to be part of the latest Viking Tactics Inc. podcast alongside Neil Davies from Hornady, and Professional Shooter and Ruger Shooting Team Captain, Doug Koenig. Click the link below to listen. We talk Precision Shooting, scope & bullet choices,and the 300 PRC being adopted by the Special Operations Forces in America. We might even talk a little bit about the 6.5 Creedmoor.

A little backstory, when this photo was taken of me and Kyle, I had totally pulled a “fan girl” move when I walked up to him, introducing myself letting him know that I really enjoyed his books. He looked at me and was like “girl you’ve got the wrong guy.” I was persistent and said, “no, I loved your books, Green Eyes Black Rifles and Leadership In The Shadows.” Well the rest is history and we are now friends. It’s an incredible world that we live in where I got to sit down with one of my idols to be part of his podcast with the best Ammo manufactures in the world and the best pistol shooter in the world. For that, God Bless America. And, it goes to show- never stop learning and always keep moving forward! Thank you Kyle for the friendship. I do hope you all enjoy the podcast!
