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!

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 31: JR Pederson

In this episode, I’m joined by JR Pederson, a guy that I’ve been wanting to talk to for awhile. Since JR moved to Alaska in 1991,  he’s been a hunting, fishing, trapping, guiding, and photographing fool. We talk about everything from wolf trapping to sheep hunting and fur handling, and still barely scratched the surface of JR’s knowledge and experience. I hadn’t had the chance to visit with him in much too long, so it was great to catch up, and I hope you enjoy it too!
