    111 | “Preparation is one of the Keys to Success – Advice from Base Layer to Socks to Trail Cams to Moose Sign”

    We are proud to announce our new partnership with Minus33. Our guest is Lawson Glidden, President of Minus33, who shares the long history of his company and their extensive product line. Layering is key to dealing with weather changes while hunting so Lawson shares his wealth of knowledge on Merino Wool and why his products stand out from competitors.  Trying to battle the elements of Mother Nature we deal with as outdoor people can be life or death if you are not prepared. This conversation fits right into the BWB System we have created. Vital information for any outdoor person. Moose hunt - 2nd season a lot different than 1st season. Don’t scout to early if you have 2nd season tag. Trail cam pics can be a curse – good indication of the moose in the area but moose might not be there when you hunt. They go on a mission just like deer do during the rut. Alder rubs with broken stubs from years past much better indicator then random rubs. Hal is a fan of running and gunning even at first light. Some old bulls just like old turkey’s don’t talk too much. Guide Mike says get into their living room during 2nd season before you rack or call. 2nd season seems to be better to rack brush then call in some cases.

    110 | “If You Expect to See Something You Will!” with Guest Guide Garnett

    Many asked to hear more of Garnett’s stories, so we invited him back. Bad Lee has some kind of KRUD ???? says Hal Many times, deer hear or see something and just want to get out of the way. There are 1000 things to be negative about, but you have to know you will see one! Every day you are in the woods and hunt big woods style you will be within an eye shot of a big buck Your job is to see him first. Many want to get in the woods in the “Twilighties” but if you can’t see in the shadows, you can’t see the deer When you cut off a deer yard you are just bunching more deer into a smaller area. Tipping Firs??? Pay attention to the woods around you and take note of your surroundings. Don’t forget to use the discount code for your onX membership.

Fun to listen to.

Way to stay after the education and passing the torch. I enjoy the “deer camp talk”, also like how you guys just talk about the incoming season and what’s happening with that. Keep up the good work.

Premium Hunting Talk

I enjoy the hunting talk and passing along the knowledge about being in the woods. I can relate to the hunting and fishing, being a Mainer. Fantastic job guys! Keep doing what you do. Please have Garnett back. I laughed for two hours!
