A special episode this week and one that I am excited to share with you guys and gals. We finally got the chance to sit down and hit the record button with Chef Eduardo Garcia. Many of you have probably seen the Documentary CHARGED: The Eduardo Garcia Story and if you haven’t I highly recommend it, it is a great film and an amazing story. In this interview, however, we didn’t end up talking a whole lot about his accident. We do cover it for those who have no idea who Eduardo is, but mainly it’s just a great conversation with an amazing and very humble guy. I am Really excited to share this with you. We also talk about his company Montana Mex which I think a lot of people don’t even know about. Let me tell you Eduardo make some amazing condiments. Anyway, this is a great episode and I hope you guys enjoy.
Real quick before the show though, a little update on backcountry fuel box. Thank you guys for all the feedback. I have gotten a ton of messages and comments about it, and best of all some really good input. For those who do not know a couple episodes ago I announced that I was launching a new company called Backcountry Fuel Box as a bolt on to the podcast. Backcountry Fuel Box is a subscription box that every month brings you 5 or 6 items of snacks, packs, or meals for backcountry hunting, hiking, camping, or just curbing a case of hangry. The idea is to bring you a supply of great new options to test out throughout the year and also stock up on your next adventure. Anyway you can check out more on the website www.backcountryfuelbox.com there is a full comment thread there that I have tried to answer as many questions as I can, but also sign up for the email list and I will send you a quick survey that would really help me as we try to perfect that Backcountry Fuel Box before launch. I swear its super easy and only 5 questions but would really help me out. Thank you guys so much and enjoy the podcast with Mr. Eduardo Garcia.

This episode is brought to you by On X Hunt. I recently harvested a great bull in Montana and I owe a huge part of that to my OnX. This was an area that I had hunted years ago but because of On X Hunt I was actually able to find a new access point to get into the area from a new way and save myself a lot of miles. For that hunt, I actually spent a ton of time on my laptop scouting areas and marking locations which is super cool because then when I get out in the field all of those points of interest I marked on my computer are now right there on my phone. It all worked out really well and I ended up finding a really cool bull and was lucky enough to harvest him. Another really cool new feature of the OnX hunt app is that after I shot the bull I was able to share that location with my buddy Butch who was coming in to help me pack out. which made it super convenient for him to know exactly where to find me. On X Hunt is hands down my best hunting tool I have for under $100 dollars and highly recommend getting it. Check it out and use The Rich Outdoors promo code TRO to save %20 off your membership.
