    EP 99 – Love the Process with Kevin Toye of The Focus Hunting Podcast

    EP 99 – Love the Process with Kevin Toye of The Focus Hunting Podcast

    Kevin is the co-host of The Focus Hunting Podcast and has been a good friend for a while and someone I look up to for his hunting skill and the way he conducts his life both on and offline. I wanted to get Kevin on over the holidays to catch up and see how his year went and what his plans are for 2023. Kevin is the type of hunter we should all try to be a little more like and I thoroughly enjoyed this conversation with him.

    EP 98 – The Founders Series with Bradley Brooks of Argali

    EP 98 – The Founders Series with Bradley Brooks of Argali

    Bradley Brooks is the founder and CEO of Argali Outdoors, a company that specializes in the design and manufacturing of ultralight hunting gear. Brad was also kind enough to give us an exclusive insight into their new trekking poles that are launching on Jan 5th. As always, with the founder’s series, I am trying to uncover the challenges entrepreneurs faced while growing their companies in the outdoors space. I was incredibly impressed with Brad’s thoughtful approach to design and business growth. In addition, he is a badass hunter and climber himself with lots of cool stories to share.

Mindful Hunter Podcast Review

I’ve had the pleasure to share hunting camp together with Jay. Always admired how much thought and detail go into his hunts and planing. Jay definitely takes it to the next level. It’s great to listen to and learn from.

Trending down

Has turned into an infomercial. Not what hunting is all about.

Great content-had to turn off

Was Really enjoying what he had to say on episode 84 but had to turn it off the second time he cleared the mucus out of his throat and spit INTO THE MICROPHONE. Sent my eardrums and rage into outer space.

Was really enjoying it up until then
