The Secrets of Consistent Success in Bow Hunting by
Trevon Stoltzfus, a former collegiate and freestyle wrestler and professional bull rider, was born and raised in southern New Mexico, where he had the privilege of working as an Elk, Mule Deer, and Antelope guide. From an early age the love of hunting, fishing, and the outdoors was instilled in him by a heritage passed down through his grandfather, uncles, and older cousins. Having taken numerous trophy big game animals he now desires to pass that passion for the outdoors on to others through the written word, outdoor seminars, television, and videos. Trevon has had the pleasure of being an outdoor writer in the hunting industry along with appearing on various outdoor TV shows. He is also one of the hosts of the popular OUTBACK OUTDOORS TV show on the Sportsman Channel. Trevon also is an outdoor seminar speaker and appears at many hunting and outdoor events sharing his love of the outdoors and personally teaching others the secrets of consistent success bow hunting for big game.
Seminars with avid hunters Donnelle Johnson and Lisa Thompson
Donnelle Johnson and Lisa Thompson have been hunting the Rocky Mountains for over two decades.
Donnelle, an Oklahoma native and collegiate tennis player, grew up fishing the Rocky Mountains with her father and later learned the art of hunting.
Lisa, a Montana native and collegiate basketball player at the University of Wyoming, grew up with a fishing pole in one hand and a shotgun in the other.
Lisa has harvested ten 6×6 bulls all DIY in various Rocky Mountain States. Donnelle harvested an archery 6×6 bull last year aided by Lisa and Wayne Carlton’s elk calling. They continue to refine the art of calling in trophy bulls and love learning the different sounds of nature. They formed an outdoor group Hunting Divas as well as both serve on the non profit board of Step Up Step Out. While finding personal success in the Big Game Outdoors has been rewarding, they continue to have a passion to pass this love on to the next generation.
Teaching and educating hunters remains a priority to them. They have shared many hunting techniques and successes in various platforms and events including: Bass Pro, Cabelas, Sportmans Warehouse, International Sportsman’s Show, Fox News, Primal Instinct, Colorado Bow Hunters, National Wildlife Turkey Federation, and Sportsman’s of Colorado radio show. Join them this weekend to learn the habits that have delivered success for them in the archery, muzzleloading and rifle hunting arenas.
