00:03:05:23 –> 00:03:06:24
Jason, what’s up man?

00:03:07:09 –> 00:03:07:29
What are you doing?

00:03:10:01 –> 00:03:16:08
Same thing as everyone else is doing. Catching up on office work. Oh, I’m ready to get into some hunting here pretty quick.

00:03:16:16 –> 00:03:18:07
Have you been social distancing?

00:03:18:29 –> 00:03:22:17
Oh yeah. I think I’ve been social distancing since I was like 15.

00:03:24:01 –> 00:03:24:09

00:03:24:27 –> 00:03:25:21
Drop this down.

00:03:27:04 –> 00:03:28:06
How you guys doing over there?

00:03:28:26 –> 00:03:33:12
We’re good. We haven’t been very good at social distancing or wearing masks. We’re not very good at No,

00:03:33:29 –> 00:03:54:02
No. Yeah, I don’t know. I mean it’s, it is what, it’s weird man. It’s just like, yeah, I dunno what to, I don’t, I, my, my thoughts change on it every 10 seconds, but the last month I’ve been like, huh. I just stopped listening to the news and I’m like, nothing’s changed now. You know? Yeah. It, you just ignore it.

00:03:54:22 –> 00:04:33:08
That’s, that’s interesting you say that. ’cause we talk about the same thing how two months ago we’re like, oh yeah, this’ll be over. Don’t worry about your hunts this fall Canada. Yeah. Buy more gear for your stone sheet hunt and all that. And now we’re starting to feel a little bit different about that. We did get the news yesterday with Alaska and their announcement opening up here. That’s big news. But obviously that’s still us to us. But some of the Canadian hunts are in limbo as are, maybe Jason brought up, you going to New Zealand or wherever else you usually go this time of year and Hawaii and other stuff. I don’t know. You’re stuck in Montana. Where you been bunkered up or is that, is that top secret?

00:04:34:17 –> 00:04:50:21
Top secret? No, I’m, I’m actually en route to Mon. I was supposed to be in Montana now, but you know, they changed some of the, to, I got bear clients, but they changed now June 1st. We’re allowed to guide clients. Alright,

00:04:51:05 –> 00:04:53:29
Good. That’s been a little bit relaxed. Yeah,

00:04:54:08 –> 00:05:08:11
Yeah, exactly. But I’m not gonna say anything about it because it’s like, you don’t know this is gonna be the third time that they’ve changed it. ’cause it was April 24th then It was May. Yeah. 20th and now it’s June 1st, so I don’t, you know, I’m not Yeah, I Well

00:05:08:14 –> 00:05:12:14
We are just gonna go up there and pick people up off the street and take ’em hunting until they tell you to stop.

00:05:13:11 –> 00:05:14:17
Yeah, exactly. Say

00:05:14:17 –> 00:05:17:19
We have just announced it to tens of thousands of people on the podcast.

00:05:18:15 –> 00:05:19:12
Yeah, about

00:05:19:12 –> 00:05:22:12
June 1st. So it, it’s not gonna stay secret. So No.

00:05:22:17 –> 00:05:49:19
Yeah, no, I don’t really know. I mean, yeah, they’ve probably, that’s what it says that it’s gonna open up, but yeah, who knows, man. Haven’t seen a, they pushed, they’ve pushed it back three times or two times, three times now. So who knows. Yeah. It’s still legal to hunt now as a non-resident as of April 24th. But you have to quarantine. Yeah. Yeah. Who’s gonna do that? The two directives? Yeah. Those two things don’t match up. 14

00:05:49:22 –> 00:05:52:29
Days staring at a, you know, hotel room mall.

00:05:52:29 –> 00:05:55:00
Just, just buy a motel room and leave.

00:05:55:21 –> 00:05:58:16
Yeah. Do it for 14 days. Yeah, exactly.

00:05:59:17 –> 00:06:00:00
I dunno.

00:06:00:22 –> 00:06:04:06
I’m lucky I’ve got my cabin up there, so I’m good. But there

00:06:04:06 –> 00:06:05:18
You go. Yeah. Yeah.

00:06:05:25 –> 00:06:10:11
So I can, I can go hunt Idaho if they don’t end up opening it up. So that’s all good. That’s my plan.

00:06:10:17 –> 00:06:15:05
Tell us about the cabin. Did you squat up there or what did, how did, how did that all come about? What,

00:06:15:23 –> 00:06:16:11
Yeah, I’ve got

00:06:17:12 –> 00:06:18:08
Squatter, you know?

00:06:18:20 –> 00:06:20:19
Yeah. I mean, wow.

00:06:20:24 –> 00:06:24:18
Okay. Going there. I dunno. Hot water. How do you use the bathroom up there?

00:06:25:01 –> 00:06:25:29
No, come on. Come on.

00:06:27:07 –> 00:06:44:14
Yeah, the cabin. I, that’s where I, I got my outfitting. I do my outfitting out. I’ve got the lodge there and then I got a place that used to be my grandpa’s. Yeah. That just kinda like a little cabin on the river. Do a lot of fishing and hunt out of there and everything. So it’s pretty fun.

00:06:45:13 –> 00:06:54:19
Nice. Right on. So you’re doing a lot of catch, you mean, you mean you just don’t get paid to hunt and fish. You gotta actually be in the office and do some paperwork.

00:06:56:09 –> 00:06:56:19

00:06:56:28 –> 00:07:00:02
’cause the rest of the, the rest of the world, we all think you just get paid to hunt and fish.

00:07:00:20 –> 00:07:04:29
Well no, I don’t get paid to do the office work. I have to do it for free to hunt and fish.

00:07:05:17 –> 00:07:08:13
That’s right. That’s what everybody needs to hear right there. That’s

00:07:08:13 –> 00:07:08:20
The truth.

00:07:09:26 –> 00:07:10:05

00:07:11:18 –> 00:07:21:28
Well, good. Well tell us, what did you end up with this last year? I know you’ve always got a super busy schedule. What did you end up doing last year and what are you looking forward to this year?

00:07:22:17 –> 00:07:58:13
Yeah, I, I mean I, I did it quite a bit last year. I had a pretty full, I mean, I tried to kind of make the hunting thing go year round. So I, I was over in Australia, New Zealand doing those hunts, which this year obviously I missed out on. But yeah, I mean I, it’s funny ’cause my, I don’t know if you guys have this, like my Google calendars keeps pinging me of all that I’m missing. Oh. It’s like, oh man. Better delete that the other day. Yeah, I know. The other day it popped up New Zealand Fjord stag elk hunt. I’m like, yep, that’s gone better

00:07:58:13 –> 00:08:04:26
Delete that. It’ll get a guy depressed this time of year. Like you that’s used to going to Hawaii there. It’s gonna be a depressing nor two months.

00:08:05:28 –> 00:08:28:06
I know exactly. But I don’t know, I had a lot of, a lot of good hunts last year. What? I trying to think, what I, archery season Nevada. I had an early archery tag that, man, I had trouble like the, I could only hunt that first week ’cause I was, I went over to Stan as well and sheep over there, but,

00:08:29:13 –> 00:08:30:26
Wow. How was that? Yeah,

00:08:31:14 –> 00:09:16:09
That was pretty crazy. It’s, it’s a different place, man. I, the place is really awesome. Yeah. The whole like hunt itself is just kind of a cluster, like I’ve heard from everyone. I mean, it’s a hundred percent the truth. Yeah. And I think it’s always like, it’s not like the people are really nice. The, I mean, it’s an incredible country. It’s, it’s a beautiful place. I would go back and visit in a heartbeat. I, I really enjoyed it over there. But I think like that the actual hunting portion was just, I, I was kind of like, thought that I might be able to, I don’t know, it was just kind of like cut short a little bit because of whatever was going on in the local area. I don’t know, it was just kind of Yeah. Yeah. It

00:09:16:09 –> 00:09:24:02
Was just got sidebars on you everywhere maybe, huh? Not like wild and free and architect your own day and all that.

00:09:24:25 –> 00:09:51:22
Yeah. It’s just like, you’re kinda like, it’s so, and it’s so far out there and you just, like, the whole travel portion of it is pretty rough. But I mean, it was, it was pretty cool. It was a cool experience. There’s a lot of, lot of cool stuff to see and do. God, the country’s just incredibly gorgeous and the people are super nice. So I, I mean, I I would say it’s like, it’s actually not a bad vacation spot. Your dollar goes so far. It’s incredible. It’s like, it’s crazy.

00:09:52:12 –> 00:09:53:17
Do they take American money

00:09:55:18 –> 00:09:58:14
Now? You gotta convert it. But do you, yeah. I mean like,

00:09:58:22 –> 00:10:01:03
Kind of feels like you play a monopoly or something or

00:10:01:18 –> 00:10:32:27
Yeah, exactly. I mean we sat down like after the hunt at this, like what would be the best restaurant in this city, you know? And it was like, just like walking into any nice restaurant anywhere. And we ordered like these giant bone in ribeye steaks that were really good beef, like phenomenal steak like sides, everything. You know, you’d probably pay a hundred, 120 bucks for this meal here. Yeah. Like, it was that, just like that. Wow. And but for the two of us together, less than $20.

00:10:33:20 –> 00:10:35:11
Wow. Us less than 20 bucks.

00:10:35:12 –> 00:10:37:17
Yeah. Combined less than $10 a person.

00:10:38:02 –> 00:10:40:02
Probably grass fed Angus too. Geez.

00:10:40:09 –> 00:10:48:10
Oh yeah. And you’re like, what? I was like, it was one of the better steaks I’ve ever had. Granted I just got off of a sheep punt. But I mean, mean yeah, it

00:10:48:10 –> 00:10:50:05
Was, it could have been a horse mate. He

00:10:50:05 –> 00:10:50:28
Would’ve, it probably was.

00:10:51:12 –> 00:10:56:15
No, actually for lunch that day we went to the same restaurant and ordered horse steak. And

00:10:56:15 –> 00:10:57:05
Then we went back

00:10:57:27 –> 00:11:27:10
And I’m not kidding you, that horse steak was so good. We’re like, dude, I had, I accidentally, ’cause there, you know, they don’t speak any English and I accidentally ordered two burgers, like two full meals for myself. ’cause I was, I was, it was a miscommunication. And I’m like, oh man. I ordered two meals and then we had the other guy that was with me had a horse steak. And I’m like, dude, how much is this gonna be? And it was like, for both of us, less than $10 we’re like, we gotta come back here for dinner

00:11:27:20 –> 00:11:28:03
Order that

00:11:28:20 –> 00:11:41:16
Order that big steak. And like yeah, they like take the cameras out. ’cause they’re like, oh, this is, this is going like, this is big time. They ordered the big steak and we’re like, dang, less than 10 bucks for that Crazy

00:11:41:25 –> 00:11:43:21
For the mustang meatballs and

00:11:44:14 –> 00:11:49:06
Tip ’em two bucks. And they just feel like they’ve died and gone to heaven. That’s crazy. Yeah. Wow.

00:11:49:08 –> 00:12:04:10
Yeah, it was awesome. I mean, that, it was pretty cool. But I, I mean there, those Marco polo sheep are just fricking, I mean, I just love sheep. I I, you guys know what it’s like to walk up on a sheep and you’re like, man, walking up on one of those things is Yeah. Is crazy.

00:12:05:02 –> 00:12:11:20
Yeah. Wild. Like, just crazy wild experience. You know, I’ve never done that.

00:12:12:03 –> 00:12:19:08
Carter and I, Carter and I have threatened to go over there together so we could each tell our family how the other one

00:12:19:20 –> 00:12:23:16
So we could record each other at our last moments. Yeah.

00:12:24:15 –> 00:12:27:11
But we just haven’t taken the plunge yet. But we’ve threatened a few times.

00:12:28:08 –> 00:12:54:04
Yeah. I mean there’s, you know, the, the hunt over there that looks really cool too. While I wanted to chase iex and it just unfortunately didn’t work out. But I would love to hunt IEX over there. That’s like, the sheep hunting was fun and like the sheep are really cool, but the ibex are just in that next level of country there that you’re like, holy smoke. So those are, those are pretty sweet. That’s one thing that I do wish I would’ve got to do while I was there is chase those ibes. ’cause they’re pretty cool.

00:12:54:12 –> 00:13:03:06
Yeah. Wow. That’s crazy. All right. So that’s a, that’s a huge adventure, you know, let alone what else did you have going on last year

00:13:04:17 –> 00:13:49:14
And then I did, you know, a lot of guiding in Montana, elk and deer hunts mostly. I’m trying to think what other tags. I mean I had, you know, just some general tags. Idaho and Montana and Yeah. And that was, that was really Nevada, the extent of it. Yeah. Nevada. Yeah. Archery deer tag in Nevada. Go early season it went, you know, it wasn’t, it went okay. It was just kind of a tough area early. Yeah. It can be good later, but it just, and then seems like last year, I don’t know if you guys ran into this, a lot of my friends ran into the same problem. It’s like, I don’t know, with the heat and the moon that first week of the season. Yeah man, it was tough. Like everything was timbered up, nothing. And there’s so much feed in the timber last year.

00:13:50:05 –> 00:14:37:25
It’s like the deer did not have to come out at all. Wow. Yeah. And the area I was hunting was super timbered, so it was like, you know, they, they didn’t really have to come out into the open, so it was like a lot of intense glassing and steel hunting. The one big buck I did find, I saw him once, like a split second double dropper buck. And then I spent like four days just looking. But it’s like you’re looking in a sea of big timber and they don’t have to come out. And I just never found ’em again. And then I, I talked to another guy that ended up turning him up in the muzzle loader season. I think it kind of finally came outta the timber, but it was just that, that part of it was kind of hard. But other than that it was, it was really good. You know, it’s always fun to hunt Nevada early season archery.

00:14:38:19 –> 00:14:42:00
Oh yeah. It’s the first thing to open up out west is, I mean, every year.

00:14:42:25 –> 00:14:44:06
Did you guys draw any tags there?

00:14:45:03 –> 00:14:51:17
No. That’s a sore spot. I just did. We just, I was just gonna ask you if you got a tag this year to go back for redemption or not?

00:14:52:05 –> 00:15:10:13
I did, yeah. But I got a late season tag. So Did you? Yeah. Yeah. So a late season archery. ’cause I was, I’m gonna be gone in August this year, hopefully, knock on wood, if Covid doesn’t close down everything, I just need the Canadian border to open before June 27th. I don’t July 27th. I what

00:15:10:13 –> 00:15:12:18
You’re going up there August. August one.

00:15:13:08 –> 00:15:13:14

00:15:13:23 –> 00:15:15:26
What’s on tap? What do you, whatcha are you

00:15:15:29 –> 00:15:16:04
Planning about

00:15:16:26 –> 00:15:17:06

00:15:17:18 –> 00:15:29:13
Planning to hunt? Yeah. Wow. Yeah, man, it’d be such a heartbreaker. I’m like, it’s, I’ve been dreaming about that for as long as I can think. Wow.

00:15:29:13 –> 00:15:30:07
That’s, well that’s

00:15:30:13 –> 00:15:33:22
Do, do you have a contingency plan? ’cause you might need one.

00:15:34:19 –> 00:16:03:16
I don’t, no. I mean, I’ve got, I, I put in for some or probably just an or an organ general archery tag, if not Yeah. But that’s not even till, that’s not even what, the last week of August. So probably hunt California. Yeah. I don’t know. I could cash in my points there and hunt something good early August archery, but yeah, I don’t want to do that if I don’t know. I, you know, I’m just putting all my eggs in that basket. Yeah. And then I’ll figure it out. There’s plenty of things you can Oh

00:16:03:16 –> 00:16:07:22
Yeah. Do. If not, there’s a lot, there’s a lot you can do. Yeah, man. Yeah.

00:16:08:00 –> 00:16:18:24
I hope Or I’ll Yeah, me too. Or just if I, if I didn’t go, then maybe I’d just cruise up to Alaska and go hunt caribou or something in August. Or, or Sitka Blacktails. That’s always fun.

00:16:19:19 –> 00:16:25:07
Well, we want you to think about something. So Adam and I want to kill a 400 inch bull in Montana.

00:16:26:03 –> 00:16:26:12

00:16:26:17 –> 00:16:27:06
How do we do that?

00:16:29:06 –> 00:16:29:24
Step one?

00:16:31:12 –> 00:16:32:18
It’s as easy as this first.

00:16:32:23 –> 00:16:36:06
Yeah. It’s, it’s as easy as this. Step one, get a governor’s tag.

00:16:36:20 –> 00:16:36:29

00:16:37:19 –> 00:16:38:10
Okay. All right.

00:16:39:21 –> 00:16:48:02
Step two. Step two. Find the 400 inch bull. Step three, shoot the 400 inch bull.

00:16:48:10 –> 00:16:49:02
All right. That’s

00:16:49:13 –> 00:16:54:19
Easy. I love, I love, that’s pretty easy. Love three, I love three step processes. I don’t, I like short, short lists.

00:16:55:02 –> 00:16:55:14

00:16:55:17 –> 00:17:02:23
Yeah. And actually you could probably do that on a general tag too. You don’t need, you don’t need the, the governors

00:17:02:23 –> 00:17:05:17
Tag. We’ve, we’ve looked at, we’ve thought about it, looked at it.

00:17:05:22 –> 00:17:08:04
We’re raring to go next year, 2021.

00:17:09:01 –> 00:17:10:06
Yeah. There’s not with

00:17:10:07 –> 00:17:13:04
A governor tag, we’re not saying we’re doing that, but we’re gonna have to do other options.

00:17:13:23 –> 00:17:26:16
Yeah. Do the plan B. That’s the one state that you could pro, you actually can shoot a 400 inch bull without having to have a lot of points. It’s not, it’s not saying it’s easy, but it’s been done many a times. Yeah, yeah.

00:17:26:25 –> 00:17:32:05
We’ll have to hunt it for 10 years or something to get something special. Probably maybe longer.

00:17:32:10 –> 00:17:35:28
Yeah. Yeah, exactly. But, but there, just

00:17:35:28 –> 00:17:37:19
Keep it, just keep it in the back of your mind, would you?

00:17:38:07 –> 00:17:38:13

00:17:38:25 –> 00:17:39:18
I’ll, well

00:17:40:09 –> 00:17:44:13
Mo, most of the 400 inch bulls actually came from Montana at some point, didn’t they?

00:17:45:15 –> 00:17:47:08
Yeah. Transplants you mean, or what?

00:17:47:13 –> 00:17:50:24
Yeah, yeah, exactly. Yeah. I mean there,

00:17:50:26 –> 00:18:09:12
Yeah. Northern Utah. Yeah. You know, Yellowstone hardware, you know, populated the rest of Utah. Kentucky Elk came from hardware ranch in Utah, so yeah. Who knows where they all originated. Those merriam’s elk were still supposedly got blood pumping in Arizona. Arizona,

00:18:09:20 –> 00:18:10:20
Arizona, New Mexico

00:18:10:20 –> 00:18:23:12
Border. Those, those reservation bulls down there. But anyway, we’re digressing. So no Uhuh. What about, did you have, seems like you had a hunt with your wife or was it her first hunt or, I don’t, maybe not the first, but did you do a hunt like that last year?

00:18:24:29 –> 00:18:36:24
Yeah. No, my wife had, my wife and I had tags. Yeah. My wife and I had Montana tags last year. It wasn’t her first hunt, but she, she shot her first bull elk, so

00:18:36:24 –> 00:18:50:15
That’s pretty Oh, that’s what it was. I knew it was a first of some kind. Yep. How was that? Easy for, hard for after she actually walked up to something. We’ve all had wipes shoot their first thing, and it’s a little different. You’re wondering like, how’s this gonna go when you get up to it? Some of the

00:18:50:20 –> 00:18:53:08
Toughest guiding you’ve ever done, probably or could have done.

00:18:54:03 –> 00:19:41:18
You know, so her, her first deer, you know, she was pretty emotional. She cried and, and then, and then she, this is, she’s, we’ve gone on quite a few hunts since then. But her first elk was more like, when she shot it, it was just pure excitement. And I think part of that had to do with the season before we hunted. And she ended up not getting a bull. And she remembered all the cold days, all the high hard hiking, everything. And the, that morning, well, how did, I think it was the same day that morning we went out and we’re like, we’d guided. Well, I’d just been guiding all week. And so it was the weekend and I’m like, I, I packed out five elk that during that course of that week. So I was like, I do not want to kill an elk.

00:19:41:26 –> 00:20:25:24
This the weekend. Let’s just go look for a deer. So she’s like, yeah, sounds good. So we went up and we’re well, we’re, I was like, yeah, let’s just glass maybe. I also had a cow elk tag, so I was like, maybe I could find a easy cow and we can get that. I don’t know. So glass and, and I spotted some whitetails way at the top of this mountain, like normally just in mul deer country. And there’s two whitetail bucks and one was pretty good. So I said, Hey, let’s go run over there and see if we can get a, a deer. And so we get into position and I was, you know, like we got across the canyon and they came out and they’re pretty far. And I was like, ah, you know, let’s just, we’re gonna have to go around the mountain and they’re probably gonna be gone by then.

00:20:26:09 –> 00:21:28:02
She’s like, well, why do you have like this long range rifle that you shoot all the time? Why don’t you just shoot one from here? I was like, ah, okay. So I shot, I shot my buck and then the other buck walked out like halfway between at a closer range. And then she grabbed the gun and shot her buck. So we shot a white, both shot, white tails, like back to back. And then we packed him out, got back and, and then that evening we went out just kind of looking around scouting and we ha happened to find a bull elk. And it was like right before the end of the day, and it was a sprint up the mountain, pretty steep. Had to cross a river, ran across the river, got up to the top, and then they were just, they were bedded down and just only antler tips up above the grass and waited and waited. And then finally it walked out. She got a shot and shot her first bull and awesome. From, I think it was more like just having known, she put in so much work the season before, like we got, you know, had close encounters, but it was just the

00:21:28:02 –> 00:21:28:16

00:21:29:25 –> 00:21:41:07
Emotional, nothing, just nothing just worked out. Right. And it’s like, this happened to be one of those days where it just, everything worked right. It’s like, it gets a little, how often does that happen? It

00:21:41:13 –> 00:21:54:20
Gets a little personal to ’em sometimes too. If you get your butt kicked and then they start gritting their teeth hard. It’s just like, I don’t know, other stuff, being a wife or mama and Yeah. That’s, they’re not, that’s not gonna happen again. And when it does, it gets a little bit personal.

00:21:54:25 –> 00:22:16:05
And as my wife gets a, as a husband provider, this is your livelihood. The most thing you want in life is her to love it. She, you know, you want her to have the most amazing, amazing experience she can have and time after time. It’s tough, tough, tough. And then all of a sudden when it comes together, and that’s what she wants too, right? Like she wants to enjoy your pastime as well and, and learn about it. Yeah. You know? Yeah.

00:22:16:09 –> 00:22:44:06
And that’s what, that’s, it’s so much fun to go out and watch her enjoy it the way that I’ve enjoyed it. That’s, I mean, that’s the fun thing. Like it, you know, Nevada draws came out. She hasn’t, she’s never drawn a tag in Nevada as a resident. And so she, I think she had five points and she’s like, why, how do I, how do I draw tags? And I was like, I, I mean, honestly, I put in for archery hunts so I can draw a tag, right? She’s like, okay, well I’m gonna archery hunt then. I was like, all right, because you really wanted to hunt Nevada. Three

00:22:44:06 –> 00:22:47:07
Step process. She gotta buy a boat, shoot a bow, gotta get a

00:22:47:07 –> 00:23:01:04
Boat. Exactly. Three step process. So she, we got a bow last year and she’s been shooting it and stuff. And we put in as a party this year for archery tags. And she was up at, she set her alarm for midnight and was refreshing until night

00:23:01:04 –> 00:23:01:13

00:23:01:13 –> 00:23:17:06
2 45. Yeah. And her, ours didn’t come out until 2 45. I was asleep the whole time. And it was like, she was like freaking out. We drew, I drew a tag, we drew a tag. I was like, oh my gosh, that’s exciting. It. And then I was like, okay, I’m going back to bed. Let’s talk about

00:23:17:06 –> 00:23:17:10

00:23:17:20 –> 00:23:20:29
Is there a sheep tag in there? No. Aren’t you dear? I’ve had those before. Goodnight.

00:23:21:06 –> 00:23:24:05
Yeah, those ones are tough. All right. Goodnight honey. Yeah.

00:23:24:27 –> 00:23:47:26
But yeah, it is, she is pretty excited. So it’s fun to see, you know, like just that, that level of excitement and Yeah. Planning and, and she’s like, she was on Onyx maps all that night. She, I don’t think she’s slept since. So what’s today? Today’s Thursday. She’s, wow. She’s been practicing her bow and shooting and looking at maps and asking about areas and they don’t worry you

00:23:47:27 –> 00:23:49:07
Out. She’s wearing out.

00:23:49:25 –> 00:23:54:26
She was like, oh. She’s like, Hey, where’s your epic magazine? I wanna read about my unit. I was like, perfect. You know?

00:23:55:08 –> 00:23:55:17

00:23:57:08 –> 00:23:57:17

00:23:57:26 –> 00:24:02:26
She’s gonna wear you out before you even get to June 1st, let alone August 10th.

00:24:03:02 –> 00:24:11:23
She’s gonna need new SUA or Vortex or whatever you’re using. And we sell it Remy, remember that? Yeah. So she’s gonna need I, she’s gonna need some optics, some trail cameras,

00:24:12:23 –> 00:24:14:08
All the stuff. Yeah. Yeah.

00:24:14:13 –> 00:24:15:06
Well that’s cool.

00:24:15:25 –> 00:24:18:08
Need some, it’s a December bow hunt, so we’re gonna need,

00:24:18:10 –> 00:24:25:11
You’re gonna need the layer up all stuff, puff coat, all that. Yep. Shoot that bow with a puffy coat. That’s a different, that’s a different,

00:24:25:20 –> 00:24:29:01
Have a practice out there in 90 degree weather with a puffy coat on, you know?

00:24:29:03 –> 00:24:29:25
Yeah, exactly.

00:24:30:26 –> 00:24:41:23
Oh good. That’s awesome. Good for you guys. So you drew as a party there for Nevada, and then of course you got some of these other hunts going on that we talked about. General Idaho, Montana, different things like that so far at least.

00:24:42:14 –> 00:25:04:25
Yep. Yeah, we’ll see, I mean, you know, there’s always, there’s always those other states. I’m, I, I hate to say it, but I’m not, I mean it might seem like it because I’m hunting all the time, but I’m not very lucky in draws. I mean, I, I have 18 to 20 points in almost every state and I don’t think there’s an out state limited entry tag I’ve ever drawn, to be honest. Wow.

00:25:05:05 –> 00:25:05:13

00:25:05:24 –> 00:25:06:02

00:25:06:08 –> 00:25:33:16
And I don’t really put in for really hard. I mean, I put in for good stuff, but not impossible to draw stuff, you know? Yeah, yeah. I mean I, yeah, Alaska because they don’t have points. That’s the only place I’ve drawn. Yeah. It’s weird, you know? Yep. It’s funny. Wow. So, I don’t know, I’m not the guy to ask when it comes to, and you know, and I mean I’ve gotten, you know, the occasional deer tag here or there, but nothing, nothing crazy really. Mostly just general type stuff.

00:25:35:06 –> 00:26:30:26
Well, that’s awesome. Well, we’re still hopeful for a few tags in the last remaining states, but it’s starting, the writing’s starting to get on the wall that what we have better start to come to grips with is what we might have the end of it all. Carter and Remy. So I guess moving to that next phase, maybe let’s talk a little bit about hunting itself and some of your tactics or things like that that you feel are big factors for you. Maybe we’ll just start talking about, you know, stalking. I mean, I know that’s a, a big, big thing for a lot of people spotting, stalk, you know, mule deer hunting, whatever else. But let’s talk about, I mean, some of your thoughts there about how to become a better stalker, sealing the deal with the, you know, essential parts of your stock and set up and all things like that. Let’s, I dunno, if you wanna just talk about mule deer, ’cause it’s probably the species we westerners when you have a boner hands are used to hunting that way. You know, if you can stock

00:26:30:28 –> 00:26:34:02
A mule deer, you can stock an elk too. You know what I mean? They’re super sensitive.

00:26:34:08 –> 00:26:49:00
Yeah, yeah, exactly. It’s like, yeah, it’s like the dodge ball adage. If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball. If you can stock a mul deer, you can can literally shoot anything with a bow. It’s like, it’s, there’s nothing stopping you. That’s, yeah.

00:26:50:14 –> 00:27:01:17
And you’ve done a lot of that. I think you actually came out with a little series and it seems like with Under Armour on some tips and different things that you were talking about. I don’t know, what was that six months ago or something? I was seeing it,

00:27:02:06 –> 00:27:43:19
Yeah. Yeah, just kinda walking through some of the, like breaking down kind of a, say a, a spot in stock hunt from beginning to end and all the little things that you think about honestly, like the, the guys that are the most consistent at stocking those, you know, stocking mule deer or whatever. It’s all the little things, you know, being able to add it all up together and not really making any mistakes. And if you can do that, you can be consistent at, at pulling those stocks off. I mean, there are the stocks that occasionally get blown by things outta your control, but for the most part, you know, if you, if you play it right and you’ve got enough info and enough knowledge of what might happen and what’s going, what’s going on right now, then you’re gonna be pretty successful with it.

00:27:44:03 –> 00:27:47:20
Yeah. Yep. I agree with you. The little things, the littlest things,

00:27:48:21 –> 00:28:45:23
Oh, it’s the, it’s the small things that, that get you. And you know, a lot of ’em though can be, can be prevented. And then the other thing is knowing when to act. You know, whether sometimes you’re too patient, sometimes you’re too aggressive, but kind of really understanding, you know, what, what’s gonna work in that scenario. And, and every scenario is different, but there’s just like all those, all those little things of, one thing I kind of think of as like, you know, making sure that you’re actually stalking to the right spot and planning out are, are you gonna have a shot from where you’re stalking from ahead of time? Knowing like, oh, when you get over there, a lot of guys just see an animal and they go get in there and they’re like, yeah, I have no shots. Well, they stalk to the wrong spot that maybe could have been prevented ahead of time or, you know, as you’re stocking in knowing how far you are and counting down your steps and your movements. So if, if the animal gets up before you think it’s going to, you’re ready to draw back and shoot. Just little things like that go a long ways.

00:28:46:23 –> 00:29:22:01
Do you find yourself, or you, you mentioned it ’cause I know category I fall in, are you a more conservative stalker or aggressive is maybe not the right word, but do you tend to take more risks and I’ll just come out and say I do. I, I, yeah. End up, I end up trying things, calling it, forcing it or, and I don’t do it recklessly, but I, I just have to try to get a little closer, get the wind. I have to force, I’m not as patient maybe as some people that can move 18 inches in an hour and a half.

00:29:22:07 –> 00:29:23:26
I’m very patient, don’t you think Carter

00:29:23:29 –> 00:29:26:08
Bull crap? No. Chris? Yeah,

00:29:26:20 –> 00:29:28:01
I’m very patient. But I

00:29:28:01 –> 00:29:36:09
Just was wondering yeah, if, if, if, and if you’re not that way and, and I’m not, I just know I, I tend and that a lot of times leads to making

00:29:36:11 –> 00:29:36:21

00:29:36:21 –> 00:29:47:07
Stocks blown stock. But you learn from that and maybe you obviously correct it, but what do, do you, what end of the spectrum do you find yourself on? And, and I guess how do you fix it? How

00:29:47:07 –> 00:29:48:11
Do you fight it? How do you fix it?

00:29:48:25 –> 00:30:17:22
Yeah, I mean I’m super aggressive when it comes to that. I, and it depends on what it is and where I’m at, but I, I kind of decide to make the moves because I always know that I’m pretty good at finding opportunities too. So if something gets messed up then I’m like, well, I’ll just go find another opportunity. Yeah, I guess, you know, the, the one thing would be if it’s something that I’m hunting where, you know, blowing it might, you might get only one chance then I might be a little more patient in that

00:30:17:24 –> 00:30:23:26
400 inch batted, 400 inch bull on public land, general season Montana, that

00:30:23:28 –> 00:30:35:08
No, I’m running, I’m running over there. I’m literally just getting there before anybody else. I’m running fast and shooting far, you know,

00:30:39:14 –> 00:30:40:23
Smash and grab.

00:30:41:15 –> 00:31:41:29
Yeah, exactly. I mean, I think part of it though is just kind of, I, I’m super aggressive I would say, or I’m, I’m definitely more on the aggressive side, but it, you know, I’m very like, it’s very situational too. I mean, I kind of understand which ones I’m gonna be able to get in on and which ones are gonna mess me up or what, you know, look out for certain things and, and then I just take the information that I have and know at the time and, and make my move. I don’t like to, I know there’s guys that are really successful being super patient. It’s just not me. I’m not like, I’m not the most patient guy. But also I think sometimes too, I think one of the biggest mistakes is just that paralysis by analysis where you overthink it so much that you end, you don’t dare up do anything. End up. Yeah. You don’t do anything. And you think, and you think and you think, and then the deer’s not thinking he’s just doing and he is just kind of gotta be the guy that’s like, yeah, I’m gonna go in there. I’m going to, I’m gonna stalk and I’m gonna make a play and it’s probably gonna work out. Yeah. That’s,

00:31:42:09 –> 00:32:14:16
That’s the way that, well I think sometimes too, guys like you, you know, and guys that have done it a bit seem to be able to think outside the box. Like, okay, I’m within 50 yards or I’m within a hundred, or how am I going to get to this point? And then how am I gonna put an arrow in him? And you might not have the perfect broad side, but there’s a way to get an arrow in those vitals. And so you just gotta be thinking and, and capitalize on the little things that come at, at you that maybe you didn’t foresee and be able to make a decision, like you’re saying, like don’t just overthink it, like make a decision, you know?

00:32:14:26 –> 00:33:13:08
Yeah, yeah. And, and just like acting in the right times and not, I think sometimes too, like a lot of, a lot of stocks get blown by, and not that it shouldn’t, like it’s, it’s, it’s super exciting. It’s still super exciting for me. But making like rash decisions because you’re close or because, you know, that happens a lot. I think the a key is like, I make moves, but I also try not to be impatient at the wrong times. And that’s, that’s huge. Like, I mean, some of the biggest deer I’ve ever killed was like almost a blown stalk and I just laid there long enough for them to get back comfortable again where I could then sit up and shoot. And it wasn’t that they, you know, I think a lot of people freak out when it’s like the deer looked to your way, oh, I better shoot now it’s gonna run. Or you just kind of have to be able to read that animal too and, and then decide all right, when’s it, when’s it time to be patient, when’s it time to move and act and, and be aggressive? But I generally lean on that side of aggressive and try to, I kind of like make it happen as opposed to let it happen.

00:33:15:01 –> 00:33:28:13
Of course, you’ve made enough stocks, you’ve blown a few. Is there, do you have a certain number where you feel like I have to make three to kill one? Or is there an average, you know, or, or I mean, do you expect you’re gonna blow a couple?

00:33:29:19 –> 00:34:18:05
I, it depends what I’m hunting. I mean, yeah, I expect, yeah, I don’t know, maybe 50%. It just depends. Well generally if it’s something that I know I, I’m like, okay, I’m gonna take that if I’m just, if I’m just hunting and not like trying to film like self film myself, it’s pretty much a hundred. It’s 80, 80% maybe, maybe a little more. But I think that’s just because I’ve done it enough times and I’ve done a lot of stocks doing the solo filming thing where I’m filming and so I’m extra cautious and I’ve kind of learned to like, man, when I’m not doing that, super, super stealthy. Super sneaky. Yeah. When I am doing that, that adds just that extra layer of difficulty. But it’s actually made me a lot better at, at stalking stuff. Yeah.

00:34:18:23 –> 00:34:24:15
I think, well and there’s some terrain and some hunts that are definitely a lot easier than others too, you know?

00:34:24:19 –> 00:35:09:25
Yeah. Correct. It, it all depends on like, you’re like, oh man, if, if, I mean it’s, there’s times I honestly think the times that I don’t work out are the times that look like gimmies, you know, when it’s like, oh, that deer’s bedded below that one tree on the hillside with good wind, that’s the one that gets messed up. ’cause you’re stocking in and you’re like, yeah, this is a sure deal. You’ve already taken a picture with that buck, you’re already like, yeah, you’re already texting your friends and then it happens to stand up 10 minutes into your stock and feeds up the open spots. Yeah, yeah, yeah. You just, those are, it’s the ones that you’re like, man, I don’t know if I’ll get that one, but I’m gonna go try it. And then those are the ones that it, it put itself in a situation and now you’ve got good cover and good wind and you can slip in there and, and make it happen. So I don’t,

00:35:09:25 –> 00:35:14:01
Sometimes I, I think the overconfidence of an easy stock makes it sloppy too,

00:35:14:20 –> 00:35:15:07
Just Yeah.

00:35:15:17 –> 00:35:17:21
Makes you just slightly sloppy, you know?

00:35:17:28 –> 00:35:39:01
Yeah. And then there’s those ones, I mean, with mule deer, I think the thing that gets me the most is the, when they’re beded the conundrum of being like, okay, do I get it up and, and or do I wait for it to stand? And then the wind shifting, I mean most, I would say almost if a stock is blown, it’s probably blown because of shifting winds. Yeah.

00:35:39:05 –> 00:36:38:18
Well that’s, I was just gonna bring that up. Yeah. Yeah. It’s an obvious that’s, and when you get, you know, bow hunting at a hundred yards is when the hunt starts. That’s what Jason and I joke all the time. You get within a hundred yards, like it all begins there. You a hundred getting to a hundred yards. Sometimes it’s harder than others, depending on cover, but that’s when it all starts because you get into that zone of yeah, they can hear you break a branch, they can hear you that, but, but then you get in and it’s beded like you said, and you have no other choice but to hunker, you’re at 30, 40, 50, whatever yards killing range and you’re at the mercy of, of everything the, the warming of the day, the clouds building the rain that’s starting to come. And then just the whole, you know, swirling of everything. And how do you, how do you try to time your stalks, you know, wind is everything, but how do you try to, you know, get a stocking in the morning before? A lot of that other factors that are the middle of the day sometimes seem to really, you get a lot of change during the middle of the day.

00:36:39:25 –> 00:36:53:02
Yeah, I mean I try to, I mean, I try to time it, you know, if you think back it’s like, it depends on where you are. You know, I just kind of, mostly I’m kind of thinking of like Nevada high country and that’s the most volatile.

00:36:53:20 –> 00:36:54:07
Yeah, that’s

00:36:54:07 –> 00:37:44:12
What I mean of stuff, you know. But, you know, I try to make my plays based on, I, I like to, I like to stock. If I’m, if I got a deer, like I kind of wait in the morning, I’ll do mostly like let ’em bed that first time. But depends where they’re bedded, you know, you can kind of always tell they’re not gonna stay where they’re bedded. If they’re gonna stay, they aren’t gonna stay. Yeah. And then so that second bedding, like getting in there within the first hour of that, the winds are still pretty steady. Like the thermals have stabilized, you know, you’ve got like a good prevailing wind and that’s gonna, that’s gonna hold. And then the seemed fairly successful that time before the thermals shift. But you know, I’ve done a lot of, you know, sometimes in the middle of the day though, when it’s like hot and you’ve got those steady thermals, they swirl, but that thermal takes your scent up enough where you can kind of get away with a little bit.

00:37:46:20 –> 00:38:41:22
But I try to always like kind of time my stocks based on how that wind’s going. And, and I try not to, I try not to like hang out in the red zone too long where I’m sitting in that. I know there’s guys that have sat on deer all day and I just, like, for me, that never works out. It it al I always get busted. I mean even last year, man, I was like 20 yards away from a buck just waiting, waiting. And I was, I was at the ready. But you know, you could, you could just feel it. It’s like that time in the morning when things are gonna start to get hinky and it was just that one quick swirl in a buck 15 yards to my right popped up and then that sent the bigger buck running. It’s like the, it is just, it’s just gonna happen too. But you can kind of just understanding the winds and thermals in your area gives you a huge advantage of knowing when to make your moves and when you might get busted and kind of gives you that sixth sense of when stuff’s gonna get out, out of control and messed up for you.

00:38:42:06 –> 00:39:44:00
I’ve, I’ve, I’ve been one of those guys that sat on a deer all day, but a lot it, it works when the, when the wind comes up and you know, you have a very strong, steady, you know, heavy wind, maybe a storm’s coming in or whatever, where it’s just strong, strong, solid wind. Yeah. You know, but when it’s, when you’re sitting there in the morning, I hate to stalk in the morning personally, like early just, it’s either silent, no wind, and then just a little, a little movement of wind can, can, can blow it. And so I usually like to wait until the wind comes up a little bit and generally, you know, the wind will come up, you get a prevailing south wind or whatever, you know what I mean? But like you said, yeah, you gotta understand your area, you gotta understand what the weather pattern’s been doing and what’s gonna happen. And we’re constantly checking the weather ’cause you know, not that it’s perfect ’cause I mean, you know, doesn’t know what the weather is in this particular draw or that particular peak or whatever, but, but you kind of can get a feel of those things. And so yeah, you gotta know your country. Yeah. You gotta know.

00:39:44:06 –> 00:39:53:13
Yeah. It’s like, you know where I’m at right now, it’s like, yep. Every day about noon to two it gets windy. It’s like if you’re stocking a buck, that’s the time

00:39:53:24 –> 00:39:55:06
He’s gonna die, you know? But he’s

00:39:55:06 –> 00:39:56:08
Vulnerable. Yeah. He can’t

00:39:56:08 –> 00:40:00:29
Hear you. Yeah, he’s vulnerable. That’s, he can’t hear you. There’s a lot of moving brush and

00:40:01:13 –> 00:40:02:14
Quicky leaves, whatever,

00:40:02:19 –> 00:40:03:14
Tons of stuff. Yep.

00:40:03:23 –> 00:40:37:29
Yeah, it’s like, I mean, honestly the wind is your, is your best friend. It’s, it’s, it masks so many things. It keeps you out of, out of the, you know, predator detection systems and just having that consistent wind can make or break a hunt. There’s so many hunts that, you know, you go five days of it’s just struggle, struggle, struggle. But then you get the right conditions and it’s like you could shoot any animal that you see that day. And that’s, you know, just understanding those conditions helps, you know, maybe make, make your plan or make your play. Well

00:40:37:29 –> 00:40:53:17
And I know we’ve done this too, Carter, a lot of times jets, whether it be commercial jets or in Nevada, you get get quick military jets, quick steps and you, you can crush because you can’t hear, you could run a hundred yards full speed and a deer couldn’t hear you. Yeah. When you get some of those jets playing around,

00:40:53:27 –> 00:41:03:17
Well yeah, we’re down here where, you know, of course, you know Remy down in southern Nevada when you got, you know, fighter jets low and loud and Yeah. Anyway,

00:41:03:23 –> 00:41:08:12
You run, if, if the wind’s right you co that’s a give me, you cover some country right then.

00:41:09:01 –> 00:41:09:17
Yeah. But

00:41:10:13 –> 00:41:48:05
What about, I guess after stalking all that, you know, shot execution, things like that, we don’t have, you know, that could probably be two, three whole podcasts about technique and shot placement and all that. But what are some of the maybe most simple things when it comes time to make a good shot? You know, obviously everything you practice in ahead of time, all that. But, but in the field, real life conditions, what are the things you try to then replay in your mind? You, you talked about a minute ago being at the ready. Yeah. So where do you, from that point into the execution, what do you try to really mentally walk yourself through to pull it off?

00:41:49:08 –> 00:42:42:11
Yeah, I think like one of the things that I’ve found helps a lot, especially in mountains and stuff is, is like getting, getting your feet and everything set before you take your shot. And kind of thinking about how, I mean you normally, it’s like how many scenarios are perfect where you can, it’s mostly like drawing back outta cover then raising up somehow and kind of being at this awkward position. So finding like a good way to just balance, you aren’t fighting so many things to take that shot. And then when I take the shot, I mean really what’s going through my head is just focusing on that spot. I, I mean it’s, it’s set a million times, but I think it just gets, like sometimes I think, you know, there’s people that have their shot processes or whatever. My shot process is just like focusing, focusing and shooting and not really thinking about it overly too much.

00:42:43:10 –> 00:43:23:09
But I know that that’s something that just like can’t really be taught. It’s just, it just happens. But, you know, if I were to think about something, it’s like the less things that I have to worry about, the the better. So it’s, you know, I’ve, I’ve just kind of got my system and that comes with the practice and everything else. And then just kind of focusing in on that, that particular spot. ’cause I think a lot of people, you get a little bit distracted and you get excited and that’s, that’s when you kind of pull it to the right, pull it up, shoot low, whatever, in that moment of like panic and I gotta hurry. You gotta fight those thoughts of like, shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot. And just kind of think focus, focus, focus, focus. Yeah.

00:43:23:29 –> 00:43:33:29
That’s tough. That’s tough to do. But I think part of it is just like, is like you said, there’s no substitute for experience and just doing it over and over and over again.

00:43:33:29 –> 00:43:59:25
Yeah. Being clo being close to game, which is what bow hunting is. But being close, you, there’s only, that’s one way to, that’s the best way to learn is be close and the whole things you’ve mentioned, reading, game, reading, wind, knowing one, you can get away with something knowing one, you can’t just takes getting close many, many times and Oh yeah. Learning from what goes wrong as much as doing it right again the second time. But

00:43:59:28 –> 00:45:10:25
Yeah, and I, I’m fortunate because I, I get a lot of experience even in, in what I’ve not like the off season for most western big games, I’m hunting something else somewhere else. And so I get a lot of practice with that. But something that I used to do a lot and still do every year is like take my bow out after the big game season and go hunt jackrabbits, go hunt quail, go hunt, go hunt. Stuff that you have to get close to that’s unpredictable, that’s moving that incites kind of that similar like reaction and response where you have to like get in, make your move moves right, and, and execute your shot. And just the more times you practice that, the better you’re gonna be. Even just like getting out and, and shooting. I mean, I still do like the roving with like blunt tips and shooting stumps and stuff while I’m out there. Just kind of like be at the ready and that that’s like, you can, you can’t, you just can’t put a price on actual, in the fields type practice. ’cause shooting in your backyard’s one thing, but it’s never like, never have I drawn back on a deer or an elk or anything and thought, wow, this is exactly like that three D target I was shooting. Yeah. It’s like, not even close.

00:45:10:29 –> 00:45:34:07
And I finds, I find myself throwing on like a, an old broadhead, you know, that’s the exact same as everything else in the quiver, but it’s, I don’t care, you know, obviously it’s not sharp, chunked up and you know, i, I shoot at the base of brush all the time. Sometimes I got a little bit of a, you know, dirt dune or sand dune or whatever and I’m constantly shooting out in the hills constantly. Even mid

00:45:34:24 –> 00:45:49:29
Stalk sometimes left you’re, if you’re Oh yeah. Before you crush the ridge and he’s over the other side, 300 yards. It’s like, I’m just gonna make sure everything’s, you know, this doesn’t blow up, blow up on me right now or then later, you know, whatever. I haven’t got a stick jammed in my cam

00:45:49:29 –> 00:46:01:16
Or did have that happen? Blew apart. Oh, I did. I, I, yeah, it was a lion hunt and it was like a must have been some ice in the track. I don’t Yeah, string came

00:46:01:16 –> 00:46:02:01
Out right?

00:46:02:08 –> 00:46:56:22
Flack just came apart. Blew the bow apart. Yeah. Yeah. It was a little rough. But anyway, no, no fault of the equipment. It was just, it was one of those, you know, mid-winter wet, bitter cold ic, bitter cold snow everywhere. Just, it was just, you know, just part of that probably me being a little sloppy anyway. And then, and then what about buck fever? I used to get buck fever as a kid and then I, and I just used to get so, so ticked that I couldn’t get over it. And, and you know, at some point you just realize if you, if you make it happen, you know, you’re, everything’s great. You get to go home, you get a, you know, be a hero so to speak. You did it. And then if you get buck fever and it doesn’t happen, you’re out there another 10 days. So I used to beat myself up and now I, I get buck fever after I make the shot, I start shaking, but I pretty, pretty ice cold until that happens. But it, I didn’t, I don’t know how I made the transition. It’s just, it’s hard to explain, I guess.

00:46:57:21 –> 00:47:36:22
Yeah, that’s what I think my excitement comes in after the fact. But there, there are those times where you’re like, you, something happens and you’re like, you get that, you get that rush, that buck fever and you normally make a bad judgment call and then you mess it up. So it’s just, I don’t know what, what it is of just like, I think that comes down to that whole focus philosophy or just focusing on the task at hand and not really like it is so when you let your mind wander and like, oh, what’s gonna happen after I shoot it and this, that, and the other thing, and counting your ducks before they hatch and then you get to that position and you freak out. ’cause your mind’s already played the scenario of you getting it and not the scenario of just like, you’re already

00:47:36:22 –> 00:47:39:05
What’s taking trophy now? You’re already taking photos. Yeah.

00:47:39:11 –> 00:48:18:20
Anytime you do that, you’re, you’re done. Like you’re, you’re, you’re gonna, something’s gonna happen and it’s not gonna work out for you. So, you know, just focusing on like every moment as it’s happening. And then, and then that’s why maybe afterwards, as soon as you know, I’ve had that, I mean, one time I was thinking I shot a pretty good buck with my recurve and it was like up until and as soon as that arrow hit that buck and I knew I was just like shaking. Like it was the first deer I ever shot. I thought okay, it was just because I was so focused in on that moment and then the reality of like, okay, now all that excitement can hit, can come in. But at that time I wasn’t even thinking about it. All I was thinking was getting close, making a good shot and that was it.

00:48:19:10 –> 00:48:40:29
I struggle in a blind when you’re watching an animal come in, like say it’s 200 yards out elk or whatever it is, a blind or a tree stand and you’re anticipating the shot and I’m watching ’em come in and I know it’s gonna happen. I know there’s gonna be an opportunity for fact. Yep. I don’t know, I struggle. I I lose it if I’m not careful. I gotta look arounds, look at other things. It

00:48:40:29 –> 00:49:00:00
Is hard. Yep. Hunting in a blinds, like, I don’t know, it can be difficult ’cause it’s that mind game of like, it’s right there and then you’re like, yeah, it’s so easy. It’s right there. And just watching ’em, the whole I yeah, I I I find the same thing. I think it’s almost harder that way. Yeah. Than like stalking in sometimes. Yep.

00:49:00:07 –> 00:49:37:26
I find myself, you know, when I’m guiding clients and then when you’re a hunter, you remember the word you’re saying to your clients. But ’cause you see them get worked up a lot. I’m sure Remy, I’m Jason, you too. Both. You get ’em, it’s about to happen. The deer, the elk, whatever you’ve been, they’re to kill. Whether it’s a giant or whether it’s just their giant, they’re getting ahead of themselves and you can see it. And I’ve, I’ve many times had to talk through ’em and say, Hey, this is a cow elk, you’re laying on the pack. Just put it behind the shoulder and just try to talk with them a little bit instead of, this is your grand slamming, you’re 79 years old and this is your last chance. ’cause that’s the reality of it. Yeah. We’ve

00:49:37:26 –> 00:49:41:01
Been out here for nine days and this is the first legal ram we’ve seen. Yes.

00:49:41:10 –> 00:49:42:06
Yeah. So

00:49:42:21 –> 00:49:47:07
Don’t remind em of all the important things that this is coming down on this shot.

00:49:47:07 –> 00:50:08:16
Yeah. This, whether you drew the tag, bought the tag, you know, all those things are true, but you just gotta somehow distract them from the, the reality of it. But in a way that just maybe lets ’em just for literally five seconds. And a lot of, most of the times those put a rifle, pull it together, just pull it together. This is, it’s a cow out. Just lay down, put on the shoulder and squeeze. Swear don’t it. Bigger than

00:50:08:16 –> 00:50:23:22
It’s, I swear, most people, most people, the first shot misses, I don’t understand it. I mean, they’re the most solid they’ve ever been. Solid, steady, ready, miss. And then in the heat of battle, they start smoking it and laying it right in there. So, I don’t know. Yeah. I don’t know. You, I don’t know what you,

00:50:23:26 –> 00:50:40:13
I don’t know. No, I’ve, I’ve seen the same thing. I think too, like, you know, if you were to, if you were to say what’s easier to hit like a giant mule deer at 20 yards or a spike by fork at 90, you probably, you’re probably tendering the spike by fork.

00:50:40:27 –> 00:50:42:29
You don’t care. You know what I mean? You’re just pulling it back up. The

00:50:43:10 –> 00:50:47:16
A giant bucket, 12 yards is like more nerve wracking than anything on the planet.

00:50:48:08 –> 00:50:49:19
Jack jackrabbit at a hundred.

00:50:50:12 –> 00:50:51:00
Yeah, exactly.

00:50:51:05 –> 00:50:52:12
Or a meal there at 15.

00:50:53:04 –> 00:50:55:07
Yep. Exactly. That’s exactly right. I

00:50:55:12 –> 00:51:19:00
Remember that year that, that reminds me, that year of Carter, we did go to Montana and I remember I’d broken my hand that summer and I crushed it bad. And I couldn’t hardly shoot a bow all summer. And so when we quit bow hunting the first night there from the side by side. Wow. Remember if we see a six point bull and it’s just a six point bull. Yeah. And I got out and just, it let it rip and it died right in front of us there. Yeah. It

00:51:19:00 –> 00:51:21:14
Died right in front of us. And I’m like, no crap.

00:51:23:03 –> 00:51:39:26
It was probably a 55 or 60. I don’t think I ever range. It wasn’t even your bow. I know. I, he was borrowed bow had I had to borrow that bow because I couldn’t shoot my re my recurve there. It was just, I didn’t have the strength. ’cause I hadn’t shot my bow all, all year long. I couldn’t do it. So I borrowed a compound that year. And that’s when I realized these things are pretty forgiving.

00:51:41:08 –> 00:51:44:08
It was a long time ago. That was probably 10. Yeah. 12 years

00:51:44:08 –> 00:51:49:16
Or 15 years ago. I don’t know. But to your point, yeah. I mean, if I would’ve been a three 80 bull,

00:51:50:07 –> 00:51:53:00
You wouldn’t even have got the three, you wouldn’t even have got an arrow outta the cover.

00:51:53:02 –> 00:51:55:14
No, I’d have cut myself trying to put my barrel on the string.

00:51:56:19 –> 00:52:01:16
Cut yourself, cut the string injured me. Who knows. That’s right.

00:52:01:25 –> 00:52:30:11
Yeah, exactly. But it’s, it’s, it’s just that mind, it’s just a mind game at that point. ’cause your mind’s saying, oh, this is an opportunity that I’m not gonna get. And you, and you put this pressure on yourself, you start thinking of what the opportunity is and not just the task at hand, but when it’s something that you, you don’t get as worked up about or something. So it’s just tricking yourself into making every opportunity that Yep. That just robotic just what the task at hand. Just, okay, I’m gonna just shoot that

00:52:30:11 –> 00:52:44:02
Elk you fill in the freezer with a cow elk. That’s, I mean, I don’t know what I, that’s what I’ve come up with and I stick with it when I can see somebody having a rough time and I can hear ’em breathing and you realize there’s gotta be some intervention here or you’re starting over.

00:52:44:23 –> 00:52:50:26
I just think of antelope. Anytime I need to calm down, I think antelope. ’cause they don’t do much, they don’t do a lot for me. So I’m like, okay, that’s an antelope.

00:52:50:27 –> 00:52:52:13
Or you’ll find another one. It’s a 12.

00:52:53:28 –> 00:53:18:18
I don’t, I don’t dunno. I’ll probably offend some, an little punters out there, but that’s what I think of. So. Alright. Well, cool. Any, what else you, anything else you can think of that that’s helped you as far as like, do you wear double socks, sneaky feet? I mean, is there anything you know, like that I, I’m not a huge fan of coverup since I think if the wind bad, they’re gonna smell you try to keep the wind good, but I don’t know how you do things like that.

00:53:19:16 –> 00:54:21:10
I don’t, I mean, I don’t use any cover scent stuff, but I do, I take my shoes off a lot. I I, I mean it’s, it’s just so, oh, it’s, well mule deer, they hear so well and it’s so much more quiet. I can get way closer without shoes on than I can with, but it depends on the animal too. ’cause you know, elk, I would never, I never really taken my shoes. I’ve never taken my shoes off the stock and elk. But I like to call elk any anyways sheep. I mean, actually, I, I took my shoes off when I stocked my sheep this year because they’re, or last year when, because they were bedded and there was no wind and it was just, and probably wouldn’t have got on ’em. ’cause there’s a lot of shale and stuff, so that made a big difference. But I like mo almost everything I’ve shot’s been barefoot, but there are some things that, you know, you just kind of gotta be aggressive and you don’t have time to take your shoes off or whatever. But I also, yeah, that’s situational. But I’d say most of the time, some kind of in my socks, just so much more, even if it’s just for that mental peace of mind of saying like, dude, I’m being really stealthy. You know,

00:54:21:28 –> 00:54:45:13
I’m part Native American right now. You feel that way a little bit when you’re just inside. You just feel like this is how it probably was, how it, how it was first done. But how do you, yep. How do you, I mean, for real life shooting conditions, what is your, some of your, do you take your three Ds to the mountain blocks to the mountain? How do you practice in terms of preparing for difficult shots and things like that?

00:54:46:08 –> 00:55:47:29
Yeah, I mean, I’m pretty fortunate that I’ve got like a, I could just pretty much walk outta my house into some mountain type shootings. So that’s pretty awesome. I get a lot of downhill practice. I, I find anytime that I have shots that I think are difficult, I kind of try to practice those the most. And I’ve, I’ve found, like over the years, the shots that really mess me up the most would be probably steep downhill. And, and then like that shot where you’re kind of, you draw back, crouching down, but you, you know, if you stand all the way up, you’re gonna be, it’s not gonna work out. So you kind of like have to do like a chair pose, half squat shot those, I mean, those don’t work out for me as often as I’d like. So those are the ones that I try to practice the most. And then just like the whole, you know, shooting, I mean, for the most part you, you’re stalking something. You’re coming from above downhill that seems to be most the, the shots that you get. So I try to practice those shots a lot. Yeah, yeah. Yeah.

00:55:48:12 –> 00:56:07:09
What’s your, I know you know, under Armour and you’ve got quite a good relationship and of course you, you know, wear their products often, but tell us a little bit, like what’s your favorite piece of UA gear? I know they came out with some awesome, I, I love the Ridge repent. I love the Pat Puffy jacket. A few of those, but I didn’t know, you know what, what’s your favorite

00:56:08:08 –> 00:56:39:02
Gear that Oh, it, you know, every hunt’s different. I hone, I mean, I would say my go-to would I love that infill jacket. It’s that wind stopper jacket. I wear that most of the year. And then I probably, I, if I was to just make a, a mishmosh combination, I’d probably use the, the Raider pants. Just a more lightweight pant. Yeah. And then that, that jacket and I like that reversible, that kind of like, I guess they call it the midseason, that kind of like wool blend shirt. Yeah.

00:56:39:02 –> 00:56:41:06
Its like camo on one and gray on the other. Yeah.

00:56:41:13 –> 00:56:41:28
You can flip,

00:56:42:09 –> 00:56:44:06
Go downtown, go get the male, whatever. Yeah,

00:56:44:09 –> 00:57:16:24
Exactly. And it’s super com Yeah. It’s like super good for that mid to late season stuff. Yep. You know, I just, I’ve been using that iso chill hoodie thing that just came out or why I think it’s come out now. I, maybe it’s a prototype still, but I love that thing. That’s good. That’s gonna be awesome for Nevada, it’s like early season. That’s great. And then in wet stuff that Gore pro rain gear, I swear by that. Yeah, it’s, it’s expensive, but it’s worth it. It’s 500. That’s

00:57:16:24 –> 00:57:19:08
For, I think it’s 500 bucks for a set, but it’s unbelievable.

00:57:19:17 –> 00:58:03:22
I think it’s more than that. Is it? Yeah. Yeah. I, yeah. Oh, well maybe now it’s, maybe now it’s, yeah, it’s, it’s, it’s, it’s expensive. I’ll tell you what though, when you’re in Alaska for 10 days and it rains every nine out of those 10 days and you’re the only guy that’s dry, you’re pretty stoked on it. Good. I mean, I’ve been in some super wet hunts and I’ve had no problems. So I’ve, I mean that’s, I’ve been on hunts in like mostly like a fog knack and outside of, on in Alaska, mostly in New Zealand, some super wet stuff there and with other guys too. And I’m like dry the whole time and they’re wet their stuff’s, you know, started to soak through or whatever. So yeah. I mean, I, I swear by it. It’s not quiet. It’s not light, but it’s, no, it’s just

00:58:03:29 –> 00:58:04:02

00:58:04:13 –> 00:58:16:22
Functional. It does its job. It’s, that’s right. It’s fun. It’s like if I’m carrying that kind of rain gear, I’m in an area that I want that kind of rain gear. It’s like 70 mile an hour winds and dumping rain and you want that. It’s, I mean, it’s bulleted.

00:58:16:22 –> 00:58:28:10
It is. There’s no question I was brown bear hunting in solid rain every day. And that’s, it’s unbelievable. There’s no question about it. Yeah. Come a long way from when we first, when we first started working with them, that’s for sure.

00:58:28:25 –> 00:59:12:02
Yeah. Long way. So yeah. I, I love their kits now. Like they’ve got some really good stuff that, you know, and even those wind stopper pants. I mean, if you’re talking like elk from October through the end of November, you can’t really beat that. You know, it’s, it’s, it’s got, and they’re comfortable and it’s really, you know, it’s not like you have to stop and keep putting clothes on and taking clothes, you know, because like, it, it kind of regulates you too with you’re hiking and it works and then when you’re stopped, it works. So I like that. ’cause I mean, that’s what, how much you’re just like constantly stopping, moving, stopping moving and get hot when you’re walking and cold when you’re stopped. So having something that kind of regulates a little bit so you don’t have to keep jumping around with the extremes. That’s nice. Yeah.

00:59:13:08 –> 00:59:23:24
Well, all right buddy, is there any parting words of wisdom? Words of wisdom for anybody out there listening or anything else? Oh man, we didn’t cover that. You, you think’s important at the moment.

00:59:24:22 –> 00:59:28:22
I think we covered things I thought were important and things that I didn’t think were important. So we’re good.

00:59:29:03 –> 00:59:36:00
Three, three step process. Get, get it, get a, get a wazoo tag. Put a bunch of time into it. Find the animal. Kill it. Got it. Yeah.

00:59:36:07 –> 00:59:48:14
That’s it. I mean, it’s, it’s that simple. Yeah. I mean like, if you, if you start overthinking it, then yeah, you’re just, you’re in, you’re in for a downward spiral. Just gotta do,

00:59:48:24 –> 00:59:54:21
Kill lots of stuff. Practice, kill lots of stuff. Tags, tags, time, and execute. Get her done.

00:59:55:07 –> 00:59:56:23
Yep. I think that’s a good one.

00:59:57:07 –> 01:00:07:28
So let’s say you’re stone sheet hunt is all on, we all travel to Canada this fall. No problem. Are you taking bow only? That’s a question we

01:00:08:09 –> 01:00:22:22
Like to know. I’ve, I’ve been recently throwing that back and forth. I am bow hunting it, so I was debating, I, it didn’t even come up in my mind till yesterday. I was like, maybe I should take a rifle as well. I don’t know, man. Man,

01:00:22:22 –> 01:00:28:29
That’s it’s big decision, man. It is. I’ve not, I’ve not been man enough for whatever the word is to do that.

01:00:29:26 –> 01:00:31:23
And I’m talking and that’s what I’m like, be

01:00:31:23 –> 01:00:32:20
Different if you have, we’re

01:00:32:20 –> 01:00:54:27
Talking about just like do it. But that’s, this is one of those hunts where that maybe once comes into your play. I’m already thinking you’re like, you have to make a, like you gotta do it or you gotta be in good, you gotta do this. You got, and you’re like, man, it’s like when that sheep steps out, am I gonna get some buck fever? Probably because I’ve worked it up in my head for the better part of

01:00:54:27 –> 01:00:54:29

01:00:54:29 –> 01:00:55:20
Entire life. Five

01:00:55:20 –> 01:00:55:23

01:00:55:27 –> 01:00:57:07
Yeah. Whatever. Exactly. So you’re,

01:00:57:07 –> 01:00:59:26
You’re gonna have to think either antelope or cow elk. That’s what you’re gonna have to

01:00:59:26 –> 01:01:02:23
Think. Yeah. You’re like, it’s just a stupid goat.

01:01:04:16 –> 01:01:04:29
It’s a

01:01:05:04 –> 01:01:06:17
Feral goat on Maui. It’s a

01:01:06:20 –> 01:01:10:15
Feral goat. Yeah, that’s right. It’s a chicken and down. Yeah.

01:01:12:21 –> 01:01:20:26
Yeah. It’s a big decision. Well, I’ve just, I’m not, didn’t mean to put you on the spot, but it’s a big, I knew it probably was something you’ve been weighing. Yeah.

01:01:20:26 –> 01:01:34:27
The problem is, is you’re not in your home turf up there. You’ve got a certain amount of time, let’s call it a 10 day hunt, you know, you got weather, you’ve got money, you’ve got time. I mean, there’s so much wrapped up into it. It’d be different if it was your backyard and I got a month and a half to make this happen.

01:01:35:03 –> 01:01:37:25
Yeah. Montana, rocky tag or something like that. Yeah.

01:01:38:00 –> 01:02:03:10
And, and unfortunately I’ve got a lot of time, so that’s good. That’s, you know, but also the thing is, is yeah, you just like, you don’t know how it’s gonna go, do you, are you okay with going home without one empty and not just empty? What happens if one’s at 75 yards and you just don’t like close but just no bow shot, you, those kind of scenarios, right? It’s

01:02:03:10 –> 01:02:07:29
A bow shot in the backyard, but it’s something you want. Do you wanna let that arrow go ago,

01:02:09:03 –> 01:02:13:15
A windy ridge at 75 yards blowing cross wind, all those little

01:02:13:15 –> 01:02:36:05
Things, right? Yeah. Or you, or you’re in fairly like within a hundred yards, but it’s blowing and you, and you can’t get any closer. And it’s like, okay, well it’s, yeah, that’s, it’s a tough decision, but real, real questions. I don’t know. Yeah. Yeah. It is. I know. I, I’ve been thinking about it and I feel like I’m kind of like, of the opinion. Well, I’ve, I’ve done that too, where I’ve taken, carried both and you always use the rifle.

01:02:36:26 –> 01:02:37:05

01:02:37:14 –> 01:02:57:11
And on the hunts where I, so I’ve been, I’ve hunted, I’ve only shot one sheep with my bow and I’ve taken my bow on three sheep hunts. Four sheep hunts. Four sheep hunts. Yeah. And one of those sheep hunts, I only took a bow and that’s the one that I shot a sheep with the bow with’s, you know what I mean? And it’s, that’s what

01:02:57:11 –> 01:02:57:25
We tell people.

01:02:57:25 –> 01:03:26:13
It could’ve shot a sheep with a bow on every other hunt if I just Well, that’s not true. One of them I shot like on the last morning, last day, like at, yeah. So one of them I probably would’ve gone home empty. But the other two, I think I would’ve probably got one if I only had a bow. I know it. So that was kind of my other thought is, man, if you don’t give yourself the other option, ’cause if you’re just, if you’re carrying both, you’re gonna use the rifle. And I, not that I’m opposed to using the rifle, but I just,

01:03:26:24 –> 01:03:30:23
Maybe your guide, maybe you’re, maybe you let, maybe you use the guide’s bear gun. Worst case scenario

01:03:31:00 –> 01:03:35:01
45 70. 45 70.

01:03:35:17 –> 01:03:56:13
I think that’s, I think that’s gonna be the trick, you know, because I, I mean, I have no problem. I mean, I would love to shoot one with a rifle. Like that’s not a, but it’s like, if you maybe only get to do it once, you should probably, and you, you’re like, well, if I only get to do it once I, I want to get one with my bow one day, so I should make it this time, you’ll, you

01:03:56:13 –> 01:03:57:20
Know, do it. You’ll do it more than once.

01:03:58:07 –> 01:04:02:05
Yeah. But you’ll, you just, you never know. Yeah. So, yeah.

01:04:02:12 –> 01:04:14:18
Well we hope that all comes off without a hitch, you know, for you and everybody else traveling around this fall and may have to have you come back on if it all comes together and tell us a story about it later this fall or winter.

01:04:15:10 –> 01:04:16:16
