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 52: Sharp Rocks and Grizzly Bears

In this episode, Tom Clum of Rocky Mountain Specialty Gear and I recap an awesome week spent pursuing bears here in interior Alaska. I invited Tom up to hunt and shoot recurves (of course), and although things didn’t go according to original plans, it was a hell of a week! Enjoy!

Things have been crazy busy lately, but will do my best to get back on a regular episode schedule, thanks so much to all you folks who enjoy listening!

Episode 34: Uncle Tracy

In this episode, I’m joined by my uncle, Tracy Freel. He’s one of those guys that has been there and done that, and has been a big influence on my passion for hunting since I was a kid. It’s always great to hear his stories and perspectives, and this was no exception. 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!

Episode 24: Ryan Avery

Hey Folks,

In this episode, I’m joined by my buddy Ryan Avery. Ryan played a huge part in helping me get this podcast off the ground. He is co-owner of the website Rokslide.com and also hosts his own podcast called Avery Adventures. Although he doesn’t live here in Alaska, he is a solid dude, and one who’s opinion I respect highly on many things, from rifles, to optics, to stickbows. We had a great time catching up, and hit on quite a few topics, and hope you enjoy it as well!

Thanks,

-Tyler

Episode 21: Temple Dillard and Frank Schultz

Hey Folks,

Sorry for going dark for a bit, but we are back at it. For this episode I’m joined by Temple Dillard and Frank Schultz. Temple is an awesome guy who has lived in Alaska his entire life, much of it in the bush. I had a great time getting to know Temple a little better and hearing his perspectives and experience hunting and trapping in Alaska. Temple grew up living a true subsistence lifestyle and still feeds his family almost entirely on the meat he brings home. Enjoy!

Frank talks about his struggles as a budding traditional bow hunter. We had a great time, and hope you all enjoy hearing about it!

Episode 18: Gary Colbath, Luck of the Draw

Hey Folks, in this episode, I sit down with Gary Colbath and Nick Muche. This was the first time I’d met Gary, as he was making a stop in Fairbanks on his way up north to hunt grizzlies. Gary is a great guy, with uncanny luck in drawing raffle hunts, and although he’s relatively new to Alaska, he’s a very accomplished bowhunter. Like many of us, he moved up here for hunting, but has hunted a lot in the lower 48 and elsewhere. We get to hear some of his awesome stories, from hunting muskox and caribou in Greenland, to stone sheep in British Columbia. This was a fun conversation, and I hope you enjoy!

oh…and Gary did get his grizzly this weekend!

Episode 17: First Sit Part 2

In this episode, Nick Muche and I recap our first weekend of bear hunting this spring. It was a weekend with the highest highs, and lowest lows, but that’s how it goes sometimes. We hunted Friday night at Nick’s bait, then hunted one of my baits on Saturday. Enjoy!
