— Scott Ellis, Turkey Caller & Turkey Hunter
This episode is brought to you by Polaris Adventures
Today’s guest is really well known in the turkey hunting space. He’s one of the more recognized turkey calling competitors. He’s been a grand national Champion multiple times. He has his own TV show. He is sponsored by a lot companies. He has his own app.
But he doesn’t do this for a living.
Scott Ellis is a throw back for some of you who have been listening since the early days. He was my second guest on the show. He and I had a very good conversation last time around the ethics of hunting. And today, we’ll talk about the future of hunting.
Scott talks about the truth behind the curtain of a lot of these TV shows. Not everyone is getting paid $100K by each of their sponsors to travel and hunt. In fact, those instances are few and far between. Striving to be that person is unrealistic, and honestly, I’d rather have Scott’s life.
He’s not enslaved to brands. He only works with the ones he likes and respects. And in everything he does, he’s looking for a way to help people learn and to pass on the hunting lifestyle.

This episode is brought to you by Polaris Adventures. GoWild recently teamed up with Polaris Adventures, which is Polaris’ network of ride and drive experiences. This is an awesome program, which has quickly scaled to include more than 125 adventure Outfitters across the country. You can find and book off-road and on-road experiences across the country with this service.
To kick off our partnership, Polaris Adventures and GoWild are hosting a sweepstakes, which allows the GoWild community to first vote on the Polaris Adventures prize location. Once the location is chosen, the entry period opens for a chance to win an all-expense-paid trip to the region of the community’s choice. Voting opened this week, and location options are Zion National Park, Rocky Mountains, Appalachian Mountains, Hawaii and Alaska.
The next phase will be the entry phase. Once voting has ended, a randomly selected person will win a $500 voucher to a Polaris Adventures location during this round. The contest then opens for entries, and the winner of the final round gets an all-expense-paid trip for two to the location chosen by the community in round one, a $4,500 value.
