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.

    Kyle Williams - Backcountry Gear & Pack Goats

    I chat with Kyle Williams, a passionate backcountry hunter. Kyle and I met a few years back at the Western Hunt Expo. I could tell right off, he was someone I wanted to follow. Since then he's knocked down a couple smoker bucks and a good bull. It's been awesome to see someone put in the hard work, make a goal, and execute it. We discuss backcountry gear, packing with goats, and how to be successful when backcountry hunts get tough. Enjoy!
