Life is a film reel, not a snapshot." — Eric Clark Eric Clark is the founder of Where to Hunt. He's built the app as a side hustle, and today, we're talking about how he's pursuing making it his full-time job. The American Dream is synonymous with this mental picture of rainbows and pots of gold. But in reality, the American Dream is like the weather: Rainbows don’t come until the storm passes. Chasing that dream is hard. It’s more challenging than I ever thought. It weighs on me more than I...


24: Gus Congemi, Bowhunter, Host of Live the Wild Life

"I gave myself three years. If this show wasn't profitable in three years, then I probably didn't belong on television. I kept it real. I was honest. And it's working out pretty well." - Gus Congemi, Host of Live the Wild Life Networking and relationships can take you a long ways.

23: Tony Bynum, Photographer, Conservationist & POMA President

"No matter where I've been or what I've done, it turns out, the most important aspect of it have been the people. I don't remember the photos as much as the relationships." — Tony Bynum Speaking up in contest when you know it could not only lead to backlash, but cost you clients and therefore your livelihood is not only courageous, it’s typically the makeup of a leader, which is who we have today.

20: Stephen Holley & Marcus Stiggers

“It hit me that if this could happen to a 10 year old, it could be me. For a minute I was lost, not knowing what to do next. Since my experience going hunting, I’ve done things I would have never done before.” — Marcus Stiggers, SIXSITE When I look at our industry, I’m inspired most by brands that market through empowerment, not impossibility. SIXSITE is one of those brands. Stephen Holley, the founder, understands that he makes a high end product, but he also understands the market well....


19: Kimmi Greentree, Australian Bowhunter, Mother & Wife

"People have failure. People should know that. If they come into this and think they're going to have a 100% success—they're not. Learning from your failures makes you a better hunter. And that has to happen." — Kimmi Greentree Some of you know today’s guest because of her husband. But in a little over an hour, you’ll see she stands out on her own.

17: Alaska, Part 1: Bobby Stoker & Jared Boyce

"I caught a 125 pounder, and the guide looked at it and said, 'We gotta turn it loose.'" — Bobby Stoker recapping his trip to Alaska. Today’s episode is interesting.

16: Joe Betar, Houston Safari Club

"I can take one person hunting, but we all need to realize we're all part of a larger network. We've all got to get involved. One person is not too small to make a difference." You know those people you meet and connect with immediately? The ones who cause you to quickly forget you don’t know them all that well? That’s Joe Betar. Joe is today’s guest.

15: Adam Weatherby, President of Weatherby

“I’m here today because of the way my grandfather established this brand. I’m still riding the wave today.” — Adam Weatherby Seven decades ago, Weatherby magnums were flipping the industry on its head for their velocity and flat trajectory performance. And they’re still leading the way. Weatherby needs no intro. It’s the gun you’ve lusted for. It’s an elite brand you respect, even if you’ve never fired one or even seen one yourself. That kind of brand equity takes sweat equity. And Roy...


14: Buck Robinson, Outdoor Access

"There are no sacred cows here. Do you care about preserving a memory, or do you care about preserving a lifestyle?" — Buck Robinson I met Buck Robinson very early into my journey with GoWild. We're both entrepreneurs, but he's a few years ahead of our team with GoWild in our journey. I've admired him and his team's ability to scale and bring their vision to life. Team GoWild fully believes in what Buck is doing. You've heard it before—access is one of the toughest challenges for hunters....

“When we get a bird, that’s when I’m going to decide. Am I really a hunter? Or am I a nature photographer?" - Chris Gleim This show's a little different. I documented my co-founder's first hunting experience. You'll hear the excitement in his voice pre-hunt, the self doubt and curiosity of what it will be like to take an anima's life, and the overall the highs and lows hunters deal with. It's an honest, first-hand account of what it is like to try hunting for the first time. Chris Gleim is...
