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 41: Donald Lee

Don is one of several folks I’ve intended to have on the podcast for quite some time. We hit on a few topics including moose hunting, sheep hunting, and trapping, but consider this an introductory episode to a guy who is a wealth of knowledge and experience. Yet another one of those guys who you don’t know where to even start with. Enjoy!

Episode 37: Residency, Lynx Trapping, and about what you’d expect…

Hey Everyone, This episode may not be too polished, but it was a lot of fun. I was joined by Trevor Embry @teeterman, Nick Muche, Frank Schultz, and Matt Herkstroeter @steepndeep_outdoors. We had some great discussion on the whole spectrum of Alaska hunting topics, and these guys are a wealth of experience and knowledge. As implied, our conversation was about what you’d expect from 5 of us Alaskans drinking a little more than moderately and talking about our passions Enjoy!

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 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 23: Solo Sheep

Hey Everyone,

In this episode, I’m joined by Frank Schultz and Nick Muche. We primarily talk about solo sheep hunting, as Frank and I each split up and went on our own solo sheep hunts this year. Every sheep hunter should go solo at least once in their life. It’s a very unique and challenging experience, and both Frank and I recap our hunts from this year, as well as catch up with Nick. 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!

Episode 14: Stickbows and Dall Sheep with Troy Graziadei

In this episode, we get to hear from one of the few guys I know who has killed multiple rams with his recurve. Troy is a great guy, and he had to learn sheep hunting the hard way, basically diving right into hunting them with a trad bow. We talk about what got him into shooting traditional bows, some of his guiding stories, and what he has learned to take the rams he has. Sit back and enjoy!

Episode 8: Megabou, and the Trail of Tears

I’m joined in this episode by Brett Evens, a fellow Fairbanks resident who has quite a few stories and experiences under his belt. He’s a great guy, who is more than willing to get creative and go the extra mile for the experiences so many of us are chasing. We talk about the epic year he had in 2017, and I finally got to hear the story of “Megabou” first-hand, Brett’s story of taking a tremendous caribou last fall, getting sick in moose camp, mountain goats falling to the ocean, and, of course, a few sheep hunting stories. Sit back, relax, and I hope you enjoy this episode.

Episode 4: Muzzleloader Moose, Wolverines, and Archery Dall Sheep

Hey everyone, in this episode, I’m talking with Matt Herkstroeter, another buddy and long-time Fairbanks resident. This is a long one, but it really just barely scratches the surface of Matt’s experiences here in Alaska. We talk about dreams that have come true, what might have been, and being “sheep crazy.”

Matt is another one of those humble guys that has the experiences that most don’t acquire in their lifetime. Re-visiting just one of those experiences in it’s entirety is daunting, but we got through some amazing stories, and left plenty to be told. He talks about some of his early experiences hunting Dall sheep, and caps it with the story of his solo archery Dall ram, in my opinion, one of the pinnacles of possible hunting accomplishments in the world. Put the coffee on, sit back, and enjoy!
