Episode 68: Fall in Alaska, Spring in South Africa

In this episode I’m joined by Nick Muche, Jon Shurtz, and Jake King, and we get to catch up on moose season, Nick’s archery goat, and my trip to Africa. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but it was so much fun, and changes my perspective on some things. Enjoy!

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 50: A Ram Worth the Wait with Seth Wietgrefe

In this episode, we’re sitting in the boat NOT catching fish, talking about springtime, and of course, sheep hunting. I’m joined by Frank Schultz, Nick Muche, and for the first time, Seth Wietgrefe, who’s stories I’ve heard second-hand for a few years now, and it was great to have him on the podcast! 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 36: Sheep Season, Moose Strategy, and Ill-Advised commentary

In this episode, I get to catch up with Brett Evens. It’s been a long time since Brett has been on the podcast, so it was great to hear about his hunting seasons, talk some sheep and moose hunting, as well as get into some festivus grievances about the social media influencer/content creator world Enjoy, and if you have any comments or questions, email podcast@tundratalkak.com

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 20: Bear Re-Cap with Frank Schultz and Nick Muche

In this episode, Frank Schultz, Nick Muche, and I catch up on the past couple weekends of bear hunting. We talk about Nick’s epic weekend with his wife where they were able to take 2 grizzlies with their bows, and this past weekend’s epic black bear trip. 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 19: Cast and (hopefully) Blast

Hey Folks,

This episode is with Frank Schultz and I as we are returning from an initial trip WAY upriver to set black bear baits. Most of what we had to talk about however, was the phenomenal pike and sheefish fishing we had on our overnight trip. I think for both of us, it was some of the best freshwater fishing we’ve encountered. We caught over 100 pike, around 30 sheefish, and nothing under 30″. We talk pike fishing quite a bit, then veer off into a little bit about what Fairbanks is like and some of the unique people that live here. Enjoy!

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!
