Today on the podcast I’m joined by my buddy Todd Freeman. Todd is one of those guys who constantly seeks adventure - whether it’s traveling back to his home state of Michigan to hunt the U.P. or out his back door kayaking into hard to reach place in New Jersey. One thing he’s always looking for are bucks that like wet feet. Aside from that, he’s become my go to resource as I jump in to the world of shooting a long bow. Prior to rec...

Today on the podcast I’m joined by my buddy Steve Smallridge. Steve is a die hard outdoorsman , splitting his time mostly between chasing whitetails and duck hunting the big water of Michigan. The traveling whitetail gypsy bug has bitten him and he’s started exploring beyond his home state for the past few seasons …and finding success. He’s also a competitive Jiu Jitsu black belt and sees a lot of similarities between hunting and j...

Today on the podcast I’m joined by my buddy Steve Jewett. Steve is has a been a bowyer for a few decades and is the owner of Bushmen Bows. I’m planning to begin my descent into traditional madness. I wanted to start last year, but a shoulder injury delayed my plans. Now that I’m functional again, I’m ready to make the leap and Steve is helping me get sorted before I take the plunge and have him build me a custom long bow - thanks f...

Today on the podcast I did something a little different. My buddy Aaron Hepler and I headed south to Virginia to do something I’ve never done before. We went quail hunting with bird dogs with the folks at Cumberland Estate. I’ve hunted rabbits with dogs as a kid, but the only upland bird hunting I’ve ever done was busting brush with the old man chasing pheasants…never with a dog. And, I love anything with history behind it and the ...

Today I’m joined by my buddy Chad Sylvester to do our annual “good, bad, and ugly” episode where we cover the season that was…all the good and all the warts. It’s impossible to lay a foundation for improvement without first examining what you’ve done well, and where you’re falling short. This episode acts as an annual reset for me and helps me take a hard look at the man in the mirror. Admittedly, I had a pretty good year, but ther...

Today I’m joined by my buddy Mario Trafficante from the Hunting Beast. Mario is one of my favorite people to chop it up with. We have a lot in common beyond hunting, and those commonalities bleed into our approaches to hunting. Sometimes things don’t play out like we intend, and the path less traveled is what ultimately fills your tag. Being open to those twists of fate and being willing to indulge them can make all the difference....

Today I’m joined by my buddy Tyrell Roy. As many big bucks as Tyrell has on his wall, it’s never about the mount or trophy. It’s always about the experience, the chess match, and challenging himself to be a better hunter. This year he wanted to see if his skills and all the success he’s had in Oklahoma would translate when traveling out of state on his first out of state public land whitetail hunt. Let’s just say he got the full pu...

Today I’m joined by Brandon Lilly. Brandon knew all too well the pressure to perform from his days as an elite powerlifting athlete. He draws on that experience to keep hunting free of the outside noise or pressure to perform. Doing hard things and reframing success, setting reasonable goals, and humbling yourself is the pathway toward gaining the most fulfillment in hunting. Make mistakes, learn from them, and embrace the beginnin...

Today I’m joined by my good buddy Johnny Stewart. Johnny is grinding through his late season with a few tags still in his pocket - he’s on his way to Iowa as we speak. He filled 3 buck tags this past October through November in Pennsylvania and West Virginia. The success didn’t come easy. Some of his key spots were burned early in the season between human pressure and logging that occurred. Today we talk about changing plans when t...

Today I’m joined by my good buddy Greg Litzinger. Greg has had one of his best seasons…and one of his worst at the same time. He’s been in the game, having encounters more times than most in a couple seasons combined. A branch here, a deflected arrow there…and being just a step behind a target deer has been the story of his season. He’s still grinding it out…he’s the “Ultimate Warrior” and I have a feeling antlers will be in his la...

Today I’m joined by my buddy Jace Allen. Jace is one of those people who is just born to deer hunt and chase mature bucks. He’s as dedicated to his craft as anyone you’ll meet. That doesn’t mean there aren’t hard lessons to learn…even for the most experienced woodsman. Most guys are thrilled to fill a tag no matter how the hunt ends so long as it end with a buck on the ground. Jace is a little different and the hunt and the animal ...

Today I’m joined by my Jake Hofer from Exodus Outdoor Gear. Jake is one of my good buddies and one of the best deer hunters I know. The running joke in our friend circle for a long time was if a deer was going to be killed by our group of friends…Jake would be the one to do it. Year after year he fills tags on mature bucks. This year He drew a coveted Iowa tag…but made the decision to leave Iowa during prime—time to catch a few goo...

Today I’m joined by my buddy Erik Barber. Erik has had a killer fall, filling two archery tags. Funny thing about filling tags early, is you sometimes feel like you’re missing out with so much season left. I don’t think anyone would complain about filling tags early…but there is definitely some fear of missing out, or missing those November sunrises. Erik is as passionate an outdoorsman as you’ll find, initially cutting his teeth a...

Today We’re talking about my recent hunt in Kansas. Three seasons ago I set a goal to kill a Kansas whitetail from the ground. I had a lot of opportunities that I screwed up the previous seasons. Each set up got a little better last year and I really felt this was the year to meet my goal. I wasn’t looking for a giant…when I hunt out of state, my mission is to try and take a buck that is the average/representative animal for the ar...

Today I’m joined by my buddy Jared Scheffler of Whitetail Adrenaline. Beyond Jared being a killer with the stick and string, he’s the passion behind Whitetail Adrenaline that brings us, what I consider, to be the hands down best hunting content ever made. Being great at anything comes with a cost. We talk about the cost of perfection and getting your passion back, traditional archery and of course…decoying open country giants - tha...

Today we’re doing something a little different… I’m turning over the reins of the show to my buddy Aaron Hepler to talk about the filling my PA tag this October. Pulling this buck out with my kayak was something I set as a goal a few years ago when I found this area scouting. I’ve been beaten by two different bucks in this spot the previous two season…things finally came together on October 16th. To listen to the podcast click the ...

Today I’m joined by my buddy Austin Culbertson. Austin is one of the killers from Missouri that I’ve come to know over the past few seasons. If you remember the episode he and I did last season, he talked about a buck that got away that was haunting him…a true giant that was living in plain site…but seemed un-killable - then he got his chance and the worst situation for a bowhunter happened. Going into the offseason he only wanted ...

Today I’m joined by my buddy Tony Peterson. Tony has been on the show a handful of times and I consider him to be one of the best public land hunters I’ve ever met. More than that, he has a keen ability to observe, gain perspective, articulate complex situations and execute a plan…be it hunting strategy, or life events in general. He chases the experience above everything…truthfully it’s a perspective I’ve gained from spending time...

Today I’m joined by my buddy Cody D’Acquisto. Over the past few seasons Cody has evolved is approach to bowhunting…switching to traditional archery equipment, he’s always been one for unconventional low stand set ups…no camo and he’s done away with using trail cameras. He’s a dying breed of bowhunter who enjoys the harder things in life…whether it’s challenging hunts…or iron man style races he’s for sure a dying breed. One of my fa...

Today I’m joined by my buddy Hunter Hogan. Hunter, as his name would suggests, was almost destined to be a mature buck killer. At 25 he’s racking up an impressive resume. What’s most impressive is his dedication to his craft…professional archer, and mature buck killer. His life is purpose built to always be in the hunt. He’s recently launched a YouTube channel (Hunter Hogan) where you can see him travel the country filling tags. As...
