    112. Mule Deer Masters with Tom Schneider

    You may or may not know this, but I love mule deer hunting. I've always considered myself fairly proficient at it too, until I met Tom from Stuck N The Rut!
    Tom is a master level mule deer hunter. He's notched muley tags all over the Western U.S. and while his last appearance on the show was centered around hunting wolves, this one is mule deer focused. Also, check out the Stuck N The Rut Mule Deer Master Class! This digital course will walk you through the secrets that have proven year after year that Tom is an expert mule deer hunter, and he's willing to help you become one too!

Jim’s insight and commitment to the integrity of our sport is unparalleled. He has a wide array of guests covering different aspects of conservation, woodsmanship, and how to become a better (not necessarily successful) hunter. Thanks for the great content Jim.

Great podcast

Jim is authentic in the fact he admits that he has to learn and in doing so he has some of the best interviews with if you have not listen to all of his podcasts you really need to go back to the beginning and listen to them all. I have picked up something from everyone of the podcast that Jim has produced thanks for all the great information that you have put out.
