Episode 61: Good Rams and Bad Rain Gear

In this episode, I’m going solo, so bear with me. I recap the sheep hunt I just had and how much fun it was chasing rams around with the bow before I got blown off the mountain. I also talk specifically about my catastrophic rain gear failure, followed by some talk about expensive breathable rain gear, and my opinions, experiences, and frustrations with this experience. This isn’t meant to knock any particular company, person, etc…just to point out that everything I feared about using that style of rain gear was proven true to me, and it could have turned out much worse.

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!
