Episode 62 - Saddle Hunting Whitetails with Ted Bright

This week I am joined by a fellow Saddle Hunter and die hard whitetail hunter, Ted Bright. Ted has a unique way of looking at outcomes in the deer woods that many of us could learn from. Hailing from the land of milk and honey, Missouri, Ted employs Beast style tactics to get deep into areas others may not wish to go in order to chase mature whitetails. He shares his highest high and lowest low while saddle hunting, and we laugh a lot along the way. I hope you enjoy, and if you do, tell a...

Episode 55 - New Breed Archery with Kyle Null

September is here! That means that you are likely either chasing elk in the backcountry, or counting down the days until you can climb into a treestand to chase a whitetail. If you prefer the latter, this week's episode may interest you.

You...

We have all met them. I am talking about the guys who out hustle everyone else and get it done season after season. This week's guest is a prime example.

Episode 47 - Saddle Hunting with Taylor Chamberlin

Some folks have all the luck. This week's guest may be the very embodiment of that statment. Taylor Chamberlin hails from Virginia and is a stone cold, year-round, deer hunter. You may have missed it there so I'll say it again; Taylor hunts year-round. Because of a severe overpopulated urban area, Taylor is among a select group of hunters who literally hunt all year around. Annually, Taylor shoots over a hundred deer himself and spends over 200 days a year in the outdoors. Anyone who...


Episode 46 - Naked and Afraid with Sam Ubl

Episode 44 - Sean Curran & the $700 Bird

There are folks who enjoy the outdoors, and there are others who live for the outdoors. I know many folks believe they belong in that second category, but in my opinion its reserved for a select few. If I am being honest with myself I am probably more likely to fall in the first category than the first. However, I was able to speak with one of the few men that I believe belong in that second category exclusively. I was able to catch up with Sean Curran and discuss his public land turkey...
