Watch the first few minutes of this episode.
Shawn is in his home state of Missouri going through his normal preparation for whitetails.
Skyler's dad, Mike Wirsig, is no stranger to elk hunting in Arizona.
"Heartland Bowhunter" documents the adventures of the team as they bowhunt all over the Midwest for anything from whitetail deer to Canada geese.
Once again the crew kicks off the season with a high country mule deer hunt in Utah.
Adversity is something that we commonly have to overcome as bowhunters, however, this season provided more obstacles than normal for Shawn.
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.
