In this episode I’m joined by my long-time friend Nick. I met Nick in our first couple years of college, and back in 2006, we set off to hunt sheep. It was great re-living the memories of that hunt and hopefully you can learn some lessons from our mistakes.

In this episode, I get to sit down with the man who took the NPS to the Supreme Court and won. Twice. John is a passionate hunter and now advocate for Alaskans, our lifestyle, and use of our lands.

John also currently sits as president of the Alaska chapter of SCI, and is raising awareness around the upcoming meetings to decide the fate of millions of acres of federal public lands in northwest Alaska.
