Bowhunter TV


AUGUST 31 MON - 12:30AM
Bowhunter Magazine Editor Curt Wells returns to New Mexico to hunt elk with well-known guide and outfitter Tuffy Barnett of Mangas Outfitters. Until recently, the Land of Enchantment has treated Curt very, very well; however, these ranchland bulls just don't want to cooperate. In "Dead On," pro shooter Randy Ulmer has a better way to tie in a peep sight.
Bowhunter Producer Danny Farris is joined by three generations of the Farris Family as he chases big bull elk and explores the Farris Family's long-lost homeplace. The bittersweet visit makes memories that will last a lifetime and adds to Danny's elk-hunting legacy. In "Moment of Truth," Editor Curt Wells talks about the importance of "staying humble."
Bowhunter's resident deer nut continues his quest for big antlers with a trip to the Yukon Territory with Craig Kiselbach's Yukon Stone Outfitters. As is often the case in the Far North, weather presents serious challenges and C.J. must improvise, adapt, and overcome...and make a shot that nobody practices! In "Dead On," Randy Ulmer talks heavy arrows.

Host & Bios

Curt Wells

Curt Wells

In a bowhunting career spanning 31 years, across 23 states, 9 Canadian provinces/territories and 5 countries, Curt Wells has pursued 21 species of game with a bow and arrow. Curt’s writing career grew from regular columns and feature articles in various local, regional and national publications and the sale of his first magazine article to Bowhunter Magazine in 1985. That relationship grew until he was named Equipment Editor in 2003. In 2005, Bowhunter TV came along and Curt began hunting on camera and writing scripts until 2009 when he was named co-host of the show. That same year he wrote his first book The Modern Bowhunter – Geared Up!, and served as editor of the Pope and Young Club’s Bowhunting Records of North American Whitetail Deer, Third Edition. In 2011 Curt was named editor of Bowhunter Magazine, capping off his career as an outdoor writer. He lives and works in Wahpeton, North Dakota with his wife of 37 years, Patti.

Mike Carney

Mike Carney

A native of Cleveland, Ohio, Mike Carney cut his bowhunting teeth on burly Buckeye-State whitetails, and he has taken numerous Pope-and-Young-class whitetails across the Midwest. This accomplished stickbow shooter has also matched wits with all sorts of North American game, from antelope and mule deer, to elk and moose, to black bears, wild turkeys, and flying Asian carp, just to name a few. Not only is he an avid bowhunter, but he has chosen to do it the hard way as a traditional archer, hunting with both recurve and longbow. Mike currently keeps watch over big whitetail bucks from his home outside Peoria, Illinois, where he lives with his wife Heidi and his daughter Lauren.
