51: Joshua Claflin, Outdoors Enthusiast & Digital Marketer

To hear his No. 1 thing, listen to this show Over the last few weeks we’ve unveiled a lot of behind the scenes content from GoWild. Today I have one of the better looks under the hood of outdoors marketing that you’ll hear. Brand content doesn’t happen like your personal content. It’s not spur of the moment. Brands have...


50: Chris Gleim, Co-Founder GoWild App

48: Lyn & Lacey Hoffman, Alaskan Adventurers, Hunters & Anglers

"I said, ‘So you don’t know for 100% certainty that this bear is dead?’ He said no, and I told him we have a problem. All of the sudden, out of the corner of my eye, I see alders move, and out comes this wounded brown bear on a dead run, right for us."— Lyn Hoffman, Alaskan big game hunting guide This show is crazy. We have bear charges. Golden eagle attacks. Tales of successful hunts, including moose, sheep, goats, bears, deer, pigs, coyotes, rabbits and god knows what else I’m forgetting....

47: Huntz Colburn, Digital Marketing Strategist, Hunter & Angler

“Those relationships are key. You might have to sort through a bunch of people to find those relationships, but that’s where the time should be spent, because then it doesn’t matter what the market does, because you have quality relationships with people through social media.” — Huntz Colburn, Backcountry Digital Founder Today’s guest specializes in SEO, PPC, CPM, ROI and a whole bunch of other things that would probably make some of you say WTF. We’re talking high level. But we’re also...


46: AJ DeRosa of Project Upland, Northwoods Collective & Urban Deer Complex

“You would think in 2018, people from magazines and television networks would show up to R3. But they didn’t. To me, that just further shows the disconnect of where all of this has failed.”— AJ DeRosa, Creative Director, Northwoods Collective When we started Restless Native, we wanted people who never stayed idle. Never settled for status quo. And who are ever Restless. Today’s guest epitomizes that. A.J. DeRosa has become well known for his work with Project Upland, the incredible content...

45: Garrett L. George, Trinity Oaks Volunteer

"I woke up at the hospital. I came to with a broken shoulder. The girls who found me, knew me, and they didn't recognize me. My buddy, the police officer, had tears in his eyes. All I could think about was my brother and I handling things." — Garrett L. George By their own definition, Trinity Oaks uses hunting and fishing to give back and make a difference in the lives of others. That’s veterans, children of our fallen first responders and veterans, kids who have terminal illnesses, and the...


44: Ryan Kirby, Painter, Designer & Hunter

“I’d rather be a plumber and be the best I can be, and be able to hunt, rather than to push paint and never be able to hunt again. I feel like that’s more rewarding for me." - Ryan Kirby Today’s guest would tell you he was born an artist. That the paint brush was as natural in his hand as a basketball to Kobe Bryant. I’m not sure I agree. OK, the Kobe Bryant analogy is mine, Ryan would never say that. And I’ll agree some folks are more artistically inclined than others. But even with today’s...


BONUS: Brad joins Garrett Weaver with On Point

Standby! You're going to want to listen to this one. I was recently on Garrett Weaver's show to talk about some controversy, and I ended up giving away a little bit about GoWild 3.0, and I think I may have given some insights that I've never shed light on before, such as where the idea for Time Logs came from. This Bonus Episode is brought to you from Garrett Weaver's On Point Podcast: Brad Luttrell, from the Restless Native Podcast and the the GoWild app and I talk about some mainstream...


43: Donovan Sears, Artist, Photographer & GoWild Co-Founder

"Candid photography is so much more interesting to me. It can't be setup. You have to be quick with the trigger and you have to anticipate what people are going to do. There are no training wheels. You gotta be on your toes." — Donovan Sears Today, I have a discussion with my Co-Founder and good friend, Donovan Sears, which we documented on our way through South Texas. Donovan is an interesting guy. He’s by far the best designer I’ve ever known. I’ve said that before so that probably doesn’t...


42: Thanks

Today is Thanksgiving. And the seasonality of gratefulness is on my mind. Part of me appreciates that we take time to slow down each year and say thanks. But the cynic in me has a few complaints about it, too. Log Time for this Episode on GoWild Share your thoughts, support, or points of contention by logging time on GoWild. Logging time is fun and lets you join in on the conversation. Restless Native is Sponsored by Houston Safari Club Foundation Restless Native is brought to you by Houston...


41: Jeremiah Doughty, Wild Game Chef with From Field to Plate

"I brought people here to show them there's a better way to do life. To do hunting. Butchering. Cooking. To think outside the box when it comes to getting dirty for your dinner. No one wants to help anyone in this industry. We're losing our culture. We're losing what we are and who we are. From Field to Plate classes are to do the opposite." — Jeremiah Doughty, Wild Game Chef with From Field to Plate Today’s audio is brutal at some points. And I will not apologize. So goes it in the field,...


40: Stephen Holley & Jason Dickens, Team SIXSITE

"One of the folks said, 'There's a fire. Bring shovels.' We jumped in the truck and drove as fast as we could to where they were talking about. We pull up and shut off the truck. We get out, and we start smelling burned rubber." — Stephen Holley, SIXSITE Founder Team GoWild is on the road. We’ve been down in Texas meeting up with Stephen Holley and Team SIXSITE where we also had a meet and greet. From there we crashed in Austin for a night before meeting up with Jeremiah Doughty for a three...


39: Rick Franco, Marine & Heroes & Horses COO

“You have two creatures who don’t have a purpose anymore—the mustang from the American West, and the American soldier. We take these two un-purposed creatures and give them purpose. We break that horse and give it to a veteran. The veteran has the purpose of leading that horse. And you can’t get on a horse without being a leader.” — Rick Franco, COO of Heroes and Horses You can’t cheat the mountain. Today we’re talking with a guy who is helping our nation’s heroes learn how to conquer...


38: Joe Betar, Conservationist, Hunter & Advocate

"Get out there and vote. Support your NGOs or your local organizations. Be involved. It's critically important that we're actively involved beyond going hunting. We must have our voice heard. We must put our money where our mouth is. And we must support individuals that are in support of maintaining the legacy we have in this country." — Joe Betar, Executive Director, Houston Safari Club Foundation Welcome to a special election day edition of Restless Native. If you hate politics, don’t go...


37: North American Dogman Project Founders, Dave Jones & Joedy Cook

"It stood up and he was dumbfounded. People came out and he was trying to warn them. He was waving to get their attention. They were waving like they didn't know what he was talking about. By then this thing just pounced them and mauled them." — Dave Jones, North American Dogman Project Co-Founder This is the second of a series about Dogman. To hear the first show, listen to Episode 36 with Dark Waters, the King of Horror. What’s creepier, fantastical tales of Dogman, a monster lurking in...


36: King of Horror & Paranormal Storyteller, Dark Waters

"His brother on the front of the boat is screaming, and falling back towards him in the boat. The front half of this alligator is flying through the air at them. The other half is on the bank. This head came out of the brush and growled at him." — Dark Waters This is the first of a series about Dogman. To hear the second show, see Episode 37 with the North American Dogman Project. Tonight, I bring you something different. This is something pulled from the shadows of the deepest, dankest and...


35: Bud Fisher, Catchin’ Deers Guy

"This apparel represents what I stand for. There's that, and we're actively trying to promote conservation efforts." — Bud Fisher, Co-Founder, Catchin' Deers How many times have you and your buddies had a crazy idea, and said, “Somebody should do that. People would love it.” Typically, that conversation is where good ideas go to die. But not with today’s guest. Today we have Bud Fisher on the show. Many of you know his name, but if you don’t, you probably have heard of those Catchin’ Deers...
