Welcome to Podcast! First off thank you guys so so much, we set out to get 500 reviews a few months ago and we finally did it. The last couple months have been crazy the podcast has been blowing up and I can’t thank you guys enough for spreading the word and sharing the podcast with friends and hunting buddies. Also to the sponsor that help make it possible, it was one thing working late to do one a week but I couldn’t do the 3 a week without help and help from the sponsors, so give them a big thank you by supporting them. goHUNT has been awesome and really believes in the podcast. Which works out well because they have an amazing platform and the new gear shop is awesome because now I don’t have to support REI. No offense to REI people but they tried to shut down snowmobiling years ago and after that, we just weren’t friends anymore. Go check out the new goHUNT gear shop for all of your backcountry hunting equipment. Use our promo code if you like the show and want to keep mule Monday and Wapiti Wednesday around. I really appreciate it guys thank you so much. Now for today’s show, we have been on such a mule deer and elk kick this year that I can hardly squeeze in anything else, I feel like we tripled the amount of podcast we produce and are having an even harder time making everyone happy and getting to every topic. I know a lot of you have antelope tags this year and have even seen quite a few hitting the ground already. Antelope is one of my favorite meats out there and always a fun hunt to go do. I actually am leaving tonight with my good buddy Stewart to go help him on his antelope tag that starts this weekend. Should be a ton of fun, Stewart is super notorious for having an itchy trigger finger so I should probably take his gun from him until we decide on a good buck to take. Either way, I’m super excited to finally be getting out there and start punching tags and filling freezers. I’ll try and keep you posted along the way so if you wanna follow along on the hunt follow my story on my Instagram, @therichoutdoors and we’ll try to share the journey. Today’s guest is no rookie to putting speed goats on the ground or to a bow and arrow for that matter. Russ Meyer is someone I really look up to in the hunting world and have been trying to have him on the show but just never could get our schedules to line up for one reason or another. Russ is a life-long hunter and a great mentor to any hunter. As someone who lives in a state that you actually get the opportunity to hunt antelope every year Russ definitely has his share of experience in hunting goats. We chat mostly about bow hunting tactics and antelope behavior but we do also touch on rifle hunting a little bit. I really enjoyed having Russ on and we will definitely have to have him on again, he has a wealth of knowledge that we can all pull from. Hope you guys have a great weekend and are able to get out there and get some scouting in, or if you have an antelope tag best of luck. Be sure to tag us in your photo’s I wanna see some success photos.
