Welcome to the show, on today’s episode I am lucky enough to have sat down with Wayne Endicott, owner of the Bow Rack, and we had an awesome discussion about hunting in Oregon. We pretty much cover all of the over the counter hunts in Oregon, including some of Wayne’s history growing up, and how he became a bow shop owner. Wayne lives in Western Oregon, which means he is lucky enough to be able to hunt Blacktail deer every year, so we spend quite a bit of time discussing tactics for hunting these elusive deer. We also talk about some of the histories in Wallowa County, and how the wolves in Oregon have affected Wallowa. To wrap up the episode Wayne shares stories about Roy Roth, which I hope you all enjoy. I hope that you all enjoy this episode, and thank you for listening.   Show Notes:
