Ep. 317 | End of the World Truck — Clay Hayes Edition
Clay Hayes is prepared for just about anything – and so is his truck. Jim never misses a chance to chat about cool, outside the box, yet highly practical vehicles. Clay’s truck is all those things and more. It runs on an alternate fuel source — and we’re not talking wind or solar. Tune in to hear all about it. You might just build one yourself, save money on fuel, and be ready for…well, you’ll be ready.

#10MinuteTalk - What a Bore Scope Will Tell You
Ian Klemm stops by to chat scopes – bore scopes that is. This handy device will unlock the secrets of your rifle’s bore. And they retail for around $60. Not bad for a device that not long ago was likely top-tier spy-ops material. Tune in to hear what it can tell you and why you just might want to pick one up.
Ep. 316 | The Three Tiers of Muzzleloading
Muzzleloaders fall into approximately three different buckets (Traditional, Inline, Extreme Performance). As simple as they can be, they can be equally complex. Mark Boardman, Jim Hamilton, Ryan Muckenhirn, and Paul Neess dive deep into each style and their distinct nuances. They even find a sweet spot of price and performance that’s tough to beat. Tune in for a detailed rundown on muzzleloaders.
You Have One Handwarmer. Where Do You Stick It? | Spaghetti Shootout Ep. 14
The “Spaghetti Gang” is at it again – answering high energy questions of zero relevance. Will Mark find his slump buster, or once again fall victim to the all-mighty Muckenhirn. From the best outdoor infomercial, to bribery, cheese, and more, tune in for a characteristically ridiculous ride you can only get from Spaghetti Shootout.
#10MinuteTalk - Does Cryogenically Freezing Your Barrel Improve Performance?
Cryogenically freezing barrels is a declared important step in some barrel manufacturers’ process. Entire services are available to cryo barrels for customers interested in accuracy, consistency and longer barrel life. Some say the process works wonders. Some say it’s a fallacy. Mark Boardman, Jimmy Hamilton, and Ryan Muckenhirn debate its relevance. One thing is certain, -300° F is Cold!
Ep. 315 | "We Hunted the Entire Deer Season - Here's what we learned" ft. The Element
Content creators and dedicated deer hunters, Tyler Jones, and K.C. Smith from The Element podcast detail their origin story, how they got linked up with the MeatEater crew, their multi-state Buck Truck deer hunting tour, and deer hunting lessons learned along the way. These guys are fun to talk to! Tune in for a great conversation with some super solid deer hunting advice.
Have loved your comparison episodes with ballistic gels. Been thinking of grabbing a upgraded caliber for my Elk tags i finally got drawn for here in Manitoba. Would LOVE if could do same for 28 Nosler vs 7mm rem mag vs 300 win mag (or Weatherby etc)
Thanks guys, love the youtube and podcasts.
Definitely the best hunting/shooting podcast out there!
After every episode it just makes me want to get out and hunt or go and send some rounds down range. If you are a hunter or have a love for firearms you will love this podcast!
Hey guys. Just listened to episode 158 and we have corn mazes up here in Alberta, Canada. Every fall we take the kids to them for a fun day out.
