Sitka Athlete Mike Mitten Interview #1 "Whitetail Calling"

Nov 5, 2010


I had the pleasure to spend a week hunting elk in Montana with Sitka Athlete Mike Mitten this September. We enjoyed a string of nights around the campire, most with fresh campfire roasted grouse. One of the nights, after a long day of chasing bugling bulls, Mike agreed to answer a few questions on his passion.... bowhunting whitetail deer. Mike lives in Illinois and learned woodsmanship early on during camping and fishing trips with his father and through Boy Scouting where he earned the highest rank of Eagle. Mike is a dedicated member of a research team that discovers new treatments for cancer. He cut his bowhunting teeth on the family’s vacation property and surrounding Chequamegon National Forest in north central Wisconsin. His passion for bowhunting whitetail deer is offset each year by annual solo bowhunting adventures to distant western states, Canada, or Alaska. Over the years, Mike has frequently shared his stories and experience by authoring articles published in hunting magazines such as North American Whitetail, Traditional Bowhunter Magazine, Trad Archers World and Bow and Arrow Hunting. Mike attributes his life’s passion for the outdoors and bowhunting success to an understanding family. He is now able to teach his own children and help them accept the stewardship and responsibility each generation has for conservation of our natural resources. Mike’s contribution through the eyes of a solo hunter with a video camera in one hand and a bow in the other have enabled him to be one of the co-producers of Primal Dreams and Essential Encounters, along with his two brothers Mark and David Mitten, and Gene and Barry Wensel (www.brothersofthebow.com). He has also published his fist book, One with the Wilderness (Passions of a Solo Bowhunter). Mike is a member of a Sitka’s Athlete Staff and is a member of Wensel/Mitten Productions

Stay tuned for the next interview "Whitetails and Layering"!!!

Hey Guys,

I just got out of the bush after completeing the last of the Yukon sheep hunts for Stones. My final two hunters Jeremy and Ray Rogers both killed great rams in five hard days of backpacking.  Ray took one on Day 2 and Jeremy got his on Day 5. Ray's ram is 37.5 with just over 15 on the Base! Gross Green Scores 171 2/8!  Jeremy's ram is a 38 1/4 beautiful sheep. We covered over 30 miles and HAD FUN!

This made the perfect ending to a great Stone Sheep season in the Yukon.  Four rams taken in the Yukon and a Stone and Goat in BC...all over 25 days and 118 miles on the boots.  I figured out a lot of new country and will be sure to have a great season next year!  I'm already looking forward to it.



I just had a Bighorn hunter cancel on the first hunt so I might have some days off.  I'll be moving into the new home we recently bought and then possibly doing some personal hunting until a Bighorn hunt on September 20th.  Then I'm off and running again!

Y'all keep me filled in on your seasons so far!

Happy Hunting,

Dustin Roe
