Episode 114: John Whipple

In this episode I get to catch up with John Whipple, of 49mm creative, who was on an early episode of Tundra Talk, following our goat hunt on Kodiak in March of 2018. We talk about what John’s been up to lately (which includes some firearms and bear defense instruction), as well as how hunting in Africa compared to the hunting we are used to here in Alaska.

Episode 109: Spring Fever 2021

In this episode I’m joined by the crew, Dr. Frank Schultz, Nick Muche, and Temple Dillard. We’re all antsy and ready for spring and hit on a number of topics including (state-level) fish and game proposals, and just being wound-up and needing to make some new hunting stories.

I plan on following up with more detailed discussion on the current proposal to close caribou and moose hunting for non-locals in unit 23 and 26A, but below are links to the announcement (along with contact and meeting info), as well as to my article on outdoorlife.com discussing the issue (that also contains links to pertinent herd information).

Episode 108: Freels in Alaska

In this episode, I’m joined by my dad Britt Freel, as well as my uncles Jerry and Tracy. I get to hear a bunch of stories about the old days, how we came to Alaska, and what it was like growing up in what was then a wilderness town of Fairbanks, as well as hunting moose and caribou, and what “the bus” was like as a hunting camp. Enjoy!

In this episode I’m joined by my friend Harrison Gottschling and Jeff Lund, Ketchikan resident, teacher, writer, and host of The Mediocre Alaskan Podcast, which has been around longer than Tundra Talk, and was one of the first Alaska podcasts I found. We chat about Jeff’s trip to get a taste of late winter in Fairbanks and do some caribou hunting. We talk about some of the differences between here and Southeast AK, learning curves, and experiencing new things. Enjoy!
