When I was 18, I saw a picture of a successful backcountry hunter packing a mule deer buck out of the high country on his back. Until then, I did not know that was possible. That was over 14 years ago. I have been searching for that experience ever since. I have been improving my woodsmanship and hunting skills. I have been learning any chance I get. In short, I have been on the journey of Finding Backcountry ever since. This podcast is my journey.

    Utah Moose & Colorado Muzzy Hunt

    What a week! Dustin and Corey sit down to talk about one of their best weeks of hunting. Starting with Dustin's "once in a lifetime" Utah moose hunt. Dustin was the lucky winner of the Utah Conservation & Hunting Expo $5 raffle tag for the non-resident Wasatch moose permit. Following the moose hunt, Dustin and Corey head to Colorado on a couple leftover deer and elk muzzleloader tags. They hunt a random unit they'd never been in before and score big with a monster 199" mule deer. Enjoy!

    Clint Casper - Heading West to Hunt Mule Deer

    Clint Casper - Heading West to Hunt Mule Deer

    This episode I have a conversation with Clint Casper about hunting mule deer and living in the midwest. We discuss researching hunts, gaining bonus points, how to draw tags, e-scouting, and successfully killing mule deer on an out-of-state hunt. Clint has written multiple articles for various hunting magazines. He still enjoys hunting whitetail during the rut in his home state but western mule deer are quickly becoming his favorite. Enjoy!
