Deer Hunters Wanted.  

Feb 24, 2018

For some reason central Vermont is home to arguably some of the best deer trackers in country, especially when you throw the Benoit Family into the mix. Rodney Elmer is not exception to this.  I met up with Rodney at a hunting and fishing expo recently and in conversation quickly realized that Rodney was as much into the outdoor way of life as I am.  Rodney is well spoken and can speak intelligently on the hunter's hot topics of today.  But it doesn't end there. Rodney is a steward of the woods, has top notch navigation skills as you might expect, is a professional taxidermist of 32 years, and is the chief hunter's safety instructor and safety officer in Vermont.  Rodney has his finger on the pulse of the hunting community and shares his views through his popular and rising YouTube channel.
