The Van Woerkom brothers Erik and Aaron of Muley Freak join the show to share some hunting stories and talk hunting. If you have a brother or have ever hunted with your brother you will get a kick out of this episode. We also end up talking about the pro’s and con’s of pack horses, and why blind horses and craigslist mules are a bad idea. Erik and Aaron grew up hunting with their dad and grandpa who loved to horseback hunt and be in the mountains with their horses. At 83 years young their grandpa drew a mountain goat tag in their home state of Utah and they were able to help take their grandpa on an amazing horseback hunt for mountain goat in their own back yard.
