Episode 51: Rampages with Lew Bradley

In this episode, I get the pleasure of sitting down and visiting with Lewis Bradley, author of Rampages, one of the most, if not THE most extensive volumes of Alaska Dall sheep hunting stories and information in existence. It was great to hear some of Lew’s stories and soak up some of his decades of sheep hunting experience. 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!

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 25: Sheep Stories with Jason and Erika Franklin

In this episode, I was able to sit down with Jason and Erika Franklin to talk sheep hunting. I met Jason last year, however had already seen his self-filmed first solo sheep hunt video on youtube (link below). This year, he and his wife had an awesome, intense sheep hunt, and I was very excited to hear all about it! It was a great conversation, and I hope you enjoy it!

Episode 22: Sheep Hunting Gear and Meat/Trophy Care

I’m joined in this episode by Steve Hallenbeck. Steve was on a previous episode, and is a very experienced sheep hunter. Talking gear for hunting sheep or other extended backpack hunts can be a black hole, and it can be intimidating for someone who is just getting started. Steve and I walk through what we consider our most important gear and what we are currently using. We also discuss the importance and methods of caring for your meat and cape in the field.

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!
