John McCann and Mike McRae love to talk hunting, and our podcast is like listening in on an evening in Mike’s basement. It’s a down-to-earth and often humorous conversation, geared toward new or inexperienced hunters. We separate myths from facts, and dig deep into popular opinion on all things hunting. So far we’ve talked about tactics, spotting, building a back country rifle, ammo selection, optics, backpack necessities and layout, conservation, and wild meat care and preparation… just to name a few. We’ve talked with some great hunters already, and have more industry experts lined up. Our goal is to share what we’ve learned, and help you to make your hunt more successful.

Episode 65 Going Unleaded for Bears
June in Alberta, the morels are out and it's time to put in for your hunting draws. Mike and John discuss options for the coming season and chat about the plan to hunt new country. The Covid Crowds are pushing them into a new area.
Another topic covered is when hunts don't go as planned. About tracking a wounded black bear when there's a grizzly sow and her cubs in the area.
They also discuss their decision to try lead free bullets. Their reasons for this may surprise you!
*NOTE: Please excuse our rookie recording, the fancy Telsec Microspace recording studio threw the crew for a loop with all the snazzy sound boards and mixers. Next time you might even be able to hear Mike!! Sharla is sorry she didn't catch it sooner, next one will be awesome!

Episode 63 New Series - Hunt the Front
Hunt the Front, a series highlighting big game hunting on private lands of Alberta.
We have spent a lot of time discussing backcountry hunting on public land, which we love to do. But we also hunt farmland. Some of the most productive hunts have been on private land. Want to see 400+ elk on a hill at first light? Don't have all weekend to hike in search for game? Concerned about personal safety? These are all great reasons to hunt on private land.
On this first episode in the Hunt the Front Series:
Elliot the one antlered elk...

Love the podcast, more please!!
Great podcast guys!! I love the content and it is refreshing to have a podcast with Canadian content. Keep up the good work!
Really enjoy listening to you guys. I’m a new bow hunter and you guys always have great info for us newbies.
Good storytelling, but the politics and homophobia that pops up on your Instagram ruined things.
