Episode 45: Not Spring Yet

Matt Herkstroeter joins me in this episode after some time working on our trad bow shooting in the garage. We talk about trad bows, the NTS method of shooting, and eventually about spring bears, and some of the aspects of carrying a handgun for bear defense.

Also, the holster/chest rig i’m talking about in the episode is called the Scout and made by Northwest Retention Systems, @northwest.re on instagram, i’m really liking them so far!


Episode 44: Paul Atkins

In this episode, I get the chance to sit down with a long-time friend Paul Atkins, who lives in Kotzebue and is a fellow outdoor writer and all-around cool guy. Paul gets to do and experience some very cool stuff up in that country and it was awesome getting to hear about it! Enjoy!

Episode 42: Exploding Guns & “The Februaries”with Frank Schultz

In this episode, “Dr” Frank Schultz and I catch up on the winter’s activities, and a scary incident he had recently with an exploding handgun. He catches us up on his trapping (since i’m not doing any this winter), and I have a little bit of the rant…starting to get cabin fever maybe. If you have comments or questions, email podcast@tundratalkak.com. thanks, and enjoy!


Episode 41: Donald Lee

Don is one of several folks I’ve intended to have on the podcast for quite some time. We hit on a few topics including moose hunting, sheep hunting, and trapping, but consider this an introductory episode to a guy who is a wealth of knowledge and experience. Yet another one of those guys who you don’t know where to even start with. Enjoy!

If you have comments or questions, you can email podcast@tundratalkak.com, and as always, I appreciate your feedback and reviews on whatever platform you listen!



Episode 40: SHOT Show Recap

At the end of the mind-numbing SHOT show this year, I sat down with The Rokslide.com crew and we talked about some of the cool and not-so-cool things we saw this year at SHOT. Along with myself, there was Ryan and Tanya Avery, Justin Crossley, and Matt Cashell. Enjoy!

Episode 39: Talking Brown Bears with Luke Randall

In this episode, you’ll get to hear a few stories and tips about brown bears from my good friend Luke Randall. Luke has guided for brown bears for his entire adult life, and I happened to get to sit down with him at SHOT show. There may not be a ton of Alaska-relevant conversation happening here, but this one definitely is. Enjoy!


Episode 38: Year of the Sheep with Steve Hallenbeck

Steve Hallenbeck is no stranger to the podcast, but I hadn’t seen much of him since early august, so it was great to catch up and hear about his hunting season. Steve ended up sheep hunting for nearly the entire season, and a mountain goat hunt on top of that. I hope talking sheep hunting isn’t getting old cause we hit a lot of it, as well as gun safety, and some of the hazards we deal with on a daily basis in the mountains. Enjoy!

Episode 37: Residency, Lynx Trapping, and about what you’d expect…

Hey Everyone, This episode may not be too polished, but it was a lot of fun. I was joined by Trevor Embry @teeterman, Nick Muche, Frank Schultz, and Matt Herkstroeter @steepndeep_outdoors. We had some great discussion on the whole spectrum of Alaska hunting topics, and these guys are a wealth of experience and knowledge. As implied, our conversation was about what you’d expect from 5 of us Alaskans drinking a little more than moderately and talking about our passions Enjoy!
