Episode 112: Things Going Badly

It’s Frank Schultz and me in this episode, where after the previous episode, Frank has some cautionary tales to add involving all of the dental work he’s needed to have. We talk about potato guns, cracking muzzleloader stocks, and the troubles of running jet outboards in dirty rivers, as well as my catastrophic flub on a black bear recently. Enjoy, and hopefully learn from our mistakes!

Episode 111: Full Throttle into Spring

In this episode we get to hear about some squirrel shooting from my son Jed, then Matt Herkstroeter and I talk about how fast the transition from winter to spring/summer is here, the million things we’ve been up to, and of course plenty of spring bear hunting talk. Enjoy!

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!
