In this episode, we talk about something that should probably be top of mind but is often overlooked. Hunting in the backcountry is something we should not take lightly and should always be prepared for. In this Episode Captain Barteck, an avid hunter and Firefighter/ Paramedic joins us with some great tips for back country safety. From understanding what the major issues are that most commonly occur in the backcountry, to how to best prepare for the unknown. If you spend any amount of time away from your truck and out of service do yourself a favor, listen to this episode and educate yourself so that when the time comes that you or your partner is in trouble you know, not only how much trouble but also how to deal with the situation.
