    Taxidermy shouldn't be an afterthought in your hunting plans. This podcast with Monarch Taxidermy will help you understand how to work with a taxidermist to preserve your memories of special hunts. We discuss how to transport your trophy to a taxidermist — especially when you are hunting in remote locations (such as Alaska), or if you are looking to use a taxidermist that isn't local to you.

    Next week, in Part 2 of our conversation with Stuart from Monarch Taxidermy, we will talk about how to work with a taxidermist that isn't local to you, how to select a form/post for your mount, how to get your finished work from the taxidermist, and also answer listener questions that were submitted from Instagram.

Love your podcast, audio issues with Apple Podcasts

Thank you for your podcast.

I’d like to make you aware that I have difficulty streaming your podcast on Apple Podcasts for some reason. Other podcasts stream fine, so there’s a technical issue somewhere specific to this podcast.

Difficulty Streaming

Interesting that you mention difficulty streaming with their podcast only.
I have the same problem one year later and the reply I received from Mark was
“this is a first, I never heard of that before”.

Great content but they need to look into the issue.

Best hunting podcast!!

Hi guys, I’ve been listening to your podcast for a few years now, always looking forward to hearing what you have to say on the next one. I just want to say, you guys are the best hunting podcast out there. I listen to a number of other hunting podcast and none are as entertaining and informative as yours. I don’t use an Exo pack as I had a pack before I found this podcast, but based on these conversations that I get to be a part of, my next pack will be Exo. Thanks for what you do and keep up the great work.
