Episode 39: Talking Brown Bears with Luke Randall

In this episode, you’ll get to hear a few stories and tips about brown bears from my good friend Luke Randall. Luke has guided for brown bears for his entire adult life, and I happened to get to sit down with him at SHOT show. There may not be a ton of Alaska-relevant conversation happening here, but this one definitely is. Enjoy!

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 30: Goats, Gear, and Guiding with Mark Rowenhorst

In this episode, I get to catch up with my buddy Mark Rowenhorst on a mid-season break from guiding. He’s been out in the field guiding sheep, goats, and brown bears since august, so it was great to hear a few stories and catch up. We also hit on a few gear topics like tents and rifle calibers for goats, and just some of the dynamics of goat hunting in general. Enjoy!

Episode 28: Luke Moffat

In this episode, I’ve got Luke Moffat on the phone. Luke lives in Wasilla, is a contributor for Rokslide.com and spends as much time as just about anyone I know out in the field hunting, every chance he gets. We can hardly scratch the surface of his knowledge and experience in an hour, but we got the chance to hit on suppressors and hunting with them, putting the bullet in the right spot, and bringing your small children along in the field. It was great catching up with him, and I hope you enjoy our conversation!

Episode 27: Sheep, Wolves, and Bandsaws

In this episode, I’m joined by Nick Muche and Frank Schultz. The three of us hadn’t really gotten together since before moose season, so it was great catching up. We talked about Nick’s very successful sheep hunt, our unsuccessful moose hunts, and, of course, my inherited Butcher Boy bandsaw. We also chat a bit about arrow tuning, predator control, trapping, and email chain brown bears, including the one below, the infamous Alberta Grizzly…which Frank was present for. Anyway, hope you enjoy, and if you have any questions or comments, email podcast@tundratalkak.com and please leave a review on iTunes or whatever platform you listen on.

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!

Episode 15: Spring Fever in Alaska

In this episode, I’m joined by two good buddies Jon Shurtz and Nick Muche. Nick just returned from a deployment to Europe and we are all itching to get out to hunt bears this spring. We talk about riverboats, boating mishaps, bears, and stickbows…as well as a few things on the topic of bear defense.

This was a bit more of a catching up session, but hope you enjoy it, things are just getting ready to kick off for the spring, and I’ll do my best to take you right along with us!
