In this episode I sit down with Tony Trietch, and we talk about a little bit of everything. My personal mule deer tag is right around the corner, and I’m glad that I was able to pick Tony’s brain a bit as I start prepping myself. Tony is a well rounded hunter, and is a very reliable source to go to for information on tactics gear. Tony’s been writing outdoor pieces for Rokslide and many other outdoor blogs, and is a great person to go to if you’re in need of information. Like myself, Tony is mostly a solo hunter, and his tactics and mine seem to be pretty parallel with each other. We get into the subject of backpacking in, when to camp out, and when to stay at the truck, which, may help a few of you guys come to a decision on what your game plan is going to be this upcoming Saturday when season opens. Thanks for listening guys!
