Today on the podcast I am joined by a good friend, straight shooter, and for a Canadian a pretty damn good guy. Steve Ecklund is the Host of The Edge TV and has been fortunate to get to travel the world over hunting all kinds of big game critters. The thing I truly appreciate about Steve and the reason I would say I consider him such a friend is that Steve comes from very humble beginnings and he stays true to that. I first met Steve when we did our first show together back in 2016 EP 84: Mental Toughness in the Backcountry. We have since hung out multiple times and I can tell you he is the same in real life as the TV show and even on the podcast. I highly recommend going back and checking out that first episode if you get a chance it is truly one of my favorites.
In this episode, Steve and I chat about some of his recent trips including a 4-day stent in a Mexican prison, riding in Russian helicopters, and the complications of the bathroom situation in a tree stand while -20 below. This episode is packed with great stories as well as some great takeaways. Please enjoy!

Today’s podcast is brought to you by Backcountry Fuel. It is that time again, time to start stocking up the food stash in prep for hunting season. If you have been thinking about signing up now is the time there are only 5 or 6 boxes between now and archery season. So if you plan to stock up the time to start preparing for season is now not the week before season. I may be biased because it is my box but I love getting the box because first and foremost I now always have snacks and bars when Kels and I go for a hike or off on a trip. I have also found so many cool products from the box, and really that is why I started it. I would always see cool new products on Instagram but would never take the time to order each one or try them out. I’m telling you sign up, you’re gonna love it and if you don’t there is zero commitment, don’t like it just cancel. We are so confident you are gonna like it we don’t have to trick you into some 6 month deal. Head over to www.backcountryfuelbox.com and use the TRO code to get 10% off.
