    Yukon Sheep Hunt with Alex Nadeau

    Yukon Sheep Hunt with Alex Nadeau

    Sitting in a tent alongside a small river in the Yukon Territories of northern Canada on a rainy afternoon, Alex tells us the story of his recent successful sheep hunt. Maybe you will never get a chance to hunt thinhorn sheep in your life, but it is pretty cool to hear the story from someone who does just that on a regular basis. The Yukon is a special place.Also in this episode is an update from me on the show rebrand and where we are headed on our journey of wild food exploration. I've purc...

    Jim Willems - A Traditional Bowhunter's Journey

    Jim Willems - A Traditional Bowhunter's Journey

    This is a good episode! I recently had the chance to chat with Pope & Young Club's past President, Jim Willems. Jim is an outstanding traditional bowhunter whose passion for bowhunting takes him far and wide. He's taken numerous world-class animals with his recurve and speaks eloquently about taking back the word "trophy hunter". That discussion alone, and hearing his take on hunting big bucks and bulls, is enough to make this episode great, but then we get to talking about ways that folk...

    Fly Fishing Chocolate Milk and May's First Fly Rod!

    Fly Fishing Chocolate Milk and May's First Fly Rod!

    First off, May, Kevin, and I are at a favourite stream for a few days of fly fishing and wild food fun. The weather has been tumultuous, and the stream is running wildly and is the colour of skim chocolate milk! The fishing is challenging and even getting up and down the mountain river to the next hole is not without its hardships. The raging currents have changed the riverbed. The water is high on the banks, leaving sheer drop-offs along our path. It is a fun trip!Fly fishing in tough condit...

    Clay Newcomb on the Traditional Bowhunter's Journey

    Clay Newcomb was super helpful to me when I wanted to publish a story in Bear Hunter Magazine about my big bear in '21. At the time, he was the owner of the magazine and I didn't know it then, but he was mostly complete with his discussions with Steve Rinella and the Meat Eater company. It wouldn't be long after that that the magazine was sold, and he became a full-time content creator for Meat Eater and the Bear Grease Podcast Clay took some time out of his day to join us on the Tradit...

    Foam is Home: Fly Fishing the Kootenays with Paige Johnstone

    Foam is Home: Fly Fishing the Kootenays with Paige Johnstone

    Here is a delightful episode from a day spent fishing in the East Kootenays of British Columbia with Paige Johnstone and Lisa Tink. This starts as a lovely day on a small stream. It was so nice to be back in BC and spend time with friends. I had planned this episode immediately after I met Paige last summer while fishing with Curtis Hall. The little stream we fished is in Paige's backyard. She grew up here, long before she became a fly fisher. Paige has been fishing for three years ...

Raw and inspiring podcast for outdoors-folk

If you are interested in sourcing food from the wild, adventure, hunting, fishing, or just fun and interesting conversations with conservationists of all levels, this podcast is perfect for you.

I just spent the last 5 hours driving and time melted away as this podcast transported me from a fishing trip in the Yukon to a mountain turkey hunt in BC. I left listening to these stories feeing inspired and fired up to create more time to explore wild food sources around me.

Give it a listen, you won’t regret it!

(also the rebrand feels like a great idea)
