Paul Medel

“ElkNut” has dedicated much of the last 30+ years to a specialized subject – understanding elk vocalization. He has given seminars at sportsman’s shows in several states including for RMEF.

For more than half those 30+ years he and his son Paul Jr (owners of ElkNut Outdoor Productions) have made it a mission to share what they’ve learned to help other elk hunters through Instructional DVD’s, CD’s and ElkNut’s PlayBook designed for the OTC DIY hunter. It’s a deeper subject than you might think, and goes way beyond a few bugles, grunts, and mews. Paul and Paul Jr’s focus on elk vocalization will give you the ability to understand what elk are saying and more importantly you'll know how to respond to improve your own hunting success.
You’ll be drawn in by their insights and passion for communicating with elk. Learning The Language adds yet another weapon to any elk hunters arsenal. They will help you educate yourselves & not the elk!

Kokanee Kraze 2017
  Basic Techniques of Kokanee Fishing

Owner Alan Greenhalgh of Meridian, Idaho is a Idaho native and avid fisherman specializing in Kokanee Salmon.
A dream of mine was to start a fishing tackle manufacturering business directed at kokanee fishing.
In 2012, my dream came true with the start up of my business, Kokabow Fishing Tackle LLC.
Along with manufacturing fishing tackle, I felt the desire to share my knowledge of kokanee fishing to the public.
From the inception of Kokabow Fishing Tackle LLC, Alan has been offering free Kokanee Seminars to the public from Colorado, to the Pacific Northwest.
All seminars look into the biology, and management, of the kokanee fishery, as well as complete trolling techniques, and proven tackle set-up's, to catch this tasty fish.
Bring your questions and let's discuss kokanee fishing 101.
