Mike is on his way to hunt Mule Deer but receives a phone call that the elk are rutting in New Mexico. He takes a detour to elk country to chase screaming bulls.
The name "9-Lives" isn't a name given to a buck at a young age. It's a name that's earned and one that carries a lot of weight.
Nate, Skyler and Mike Wirsig are all familiar with hunting in NE Wyoming, but this year finds them hunting a new property that they hadn't stepped foot on before.
This year marks the 10th season that Skyler has shared camp in North Dakota, a tradition almost as old as HB itself.
