Episode 60: DIY Drop Camp Hunts with Joseph Von Benedikt

In this episode, I’m joined by my good friend Joseph Von Benedikt. Joseph is a long-time and prolific outdoor writer and well-traveled hunter that is no stranger to DIY hunting in Alaska. He offers a great perspective for folks that don’t live here, but dream of coming to hunt Alaska. We go over quite a few aspects and tips for planning your hunt, selecting an air charter, and dealing with logistics of getting here, and getting meat and trophies home.

Joseph also recently started his own podcast, called Backcountry Hunting Podcast, and he’s got great information, experience, and very easy to listen to.

Enjoy!
