Welcome to the podcast today’s episode is with a total badass of a hunter as well as an Army Ranger. Even though Justin is probably sitting in his lazy boy with his foot up listening to this because he just had surgery on his ankle. Which still hasn’t slowed him down much. Justin is a straight killer and will always find a way to get it done. A ranger, an artist in taxidermy, and has an outfitting business as well a dad to a total badass daughter. I have a lot of respect for Justin and his accomplishments both on and off the mountain. Born and raised in Colorado Justin took full advantage of the opportunity to move to Alaska, and I do mean full advantage. I really applaud those who live life to the fullest.

Welcome to Tag Tuesday! In this episode Robert Hanneman (@robert_hanneman) and I are going to cover the great state of Nevada. Nevada is Hanneman’s home state and one of his favorite states to hunt. I must admit there is some great hunting in the Silver State that I think a lot of folks overlook. In this podcast we cover why to apply, how to apply, and some tips on where to apply. We cover some of the new changes to the application process as well as some of the trends within the state. We cover Nevada as a mule deer state and why all of you mule deer hunters need to be applying in Nevada. We talk about Elk trends, populations and late season vs early season units. We also cover Nevada as a great opportunity state to fill the freezer every year whereas most people think Nevada is only a trophy state. We cover the Sheep and Goat tags or lack thereof this year as well as why Nevada just might be the next state in the best to have a moose tag. We also cover the fairly unknown hunt that is giant bears, which you can still hound hunt!
