    EP 522: How to Hunt the Haul Rd for Caribou

    EP 522: How to Hunt the Haul Rd for Caribou

    This was probably one of the top 3 hunts I’ve done. I absolutely love the challenge of going to a new place and trying to figure it out. The Haul Rd is the ultimate DIY figure it out hunt. I had been planning to do a fly out caribou hunt, I was headed out solo and honestly I just wanted to go to Alaska and hunt. When my good buddy Craig Van Arsdale said hey I am headed to the Haul rd I thought you know that hunt has been on my list for a lot of years. I have spent most of my life hunting solo for one reason or another. three years ago Craig and I went on a hunt in Colorado and we hit it off. Not only can Craig and I shoot the shit about crypto and business but we pretty much know what the other one is going to do before he says a word. The only problem with Craig and I hunting together is that there is literally zero voice of reason saying maybe thats a bad idea. This has lead to some of the craziest pack outs I can think of. The craziest thing is that Craig and I have been 100% success on every hunt together and we have killed within 400 yards of each other every single time.

    We went into the Haul rd hunt with lots of time, a willingness to figure it out, and zero safety net, aka a rifle. Craig txt me and said hey should I bring a rifle just in case? I instantly said no, I want to kill one with my bow and I don’t want to have an out. is bow or bust this trip.

    For those who don’t know the “Haul Rd Caribou Hunt” is a road 500 miles long from Fairbanks to Deadhorse where within 5 miles of the road it is bow only. If you have the gumption you could hike out 5 miles and shoot one with a rifle but not many people hike 5 miles across the tundra. In this podcast we breakdown our epic hunt that had it’s challenges and ended up with yet another brutal pack out.

    Enjoy!

    EP 520: Bilateral Amputee, Hardcore Outdoorsman Sidney Smith

    Sidney Smith is a solid human. I first met Sidney years ago, I’m always inspired by his drive. Sidney made the insane decision to amputate both his legs due to a degenerative disease he has been dealing with his whole life. Being a bi lateral amputee Sidney has gone on to do as much or more with prosthetics. In this podcast we talk about staying positive, having a good mindset, and pushing through adversity.Sidney also shares a crazy story from last fall where he broke a leg and had to crawl out of the mountains by himself.

    This podcast brought to you by the awesome folks at Maven Built Optics. Maven is such a cool company and a great group of people. I also love that they are a small Wyoming company making big waves. Maven is a direct to consumer optics company which means they don’t have huge mark ups. One of the most common questions you guys the listeners ask me is to compare mavens to something at an equal price point. I can’t say it enough Maven blows everything in a similar price point out of the water. Stop comparing products based on price. This is why I say Maven is the best bang for your buck by far and away, it’s not even close. Good glass is a must have. From their rifle scopes to binoculars, and spotters I highly recommend their optics. They also have a custom optics builder which is really cool. You can jump on their website MavenBuilt.com and design your optics with custom patterns or custom colors the options are pretty endless. Check them out at Mavenbuilt.com and use the “TRO-GIFT” code to get a special bonus gift with your purchase.

Great podcast for your typical hunter

I am your average eastern hunter who has always dreamed of hunting out west. Listening to this podcast has given me invaluable information on making these dreams reality! Headed to Wyoming this August-September for Antelope and Mule deer and I feel more prepared for this hunt from what I’ve learned here. Will be recommending to all my hunting buddies👍

Zach Lennen ,

Awesome.

Awesome podcast. Always has top of the line information coming from guys who grind to be where they’re at. If you wanna learn bout all things hunting, whether it’s archery, rifle, elk, mule, deer this is the podcast you will definitely learn. This was one of my go to podcasts learning about elk hunting before I went west, and killed 2 bulls first two years.

Good content

Podcast has lots of good information and usually has some pretty good guests. The host needs to learn to listen and let his guests speak, rather than constantly talking over them. Once you get past that, it’s pretty good.
