Hey, welcome to the show, first off I wanna say thank you guys for tuning in and also for all the iTunes reviews. I hadn’t look in a couple months and holy cow you guys have been leaving a ton of great reviews so thank you all that’s really cool of you. In other news, I am officially moved to Bozeman Montana now. I am pretty stoked about that my girlfriend and I found really cool little farmhouse outside of town so we have been pretty busy with that. On that note, I wanted to let you guys know we are going to be dropping back down to doing one a week podcasts. I know, I know I am a terrible person but hear me out I have some really cool stuff I am working on and wanna spend that extra time launch said really cool stuff as well as upping the level of the podcast. One of the really cool things about being in Bozeman is that now we can do more in person or in studio type shows. Also, I have another project that I am pretty excited to share with you guys but I can’t quite tell you yet. Anyway a lot of cool things going on but for the meantime, you’ll have to suffer through your week with only one TRO Podcast at least for a few more weeks.
This week I am joined by a couple of great guys from Kentucky to talk about all kinds of stuff, from Bass Fishing to BBQ recipes. John Hunter and Brad Luttrell are a couple of great dudes doing some pretty cool things. Brad reached out to me several months ago as a listener of the show and instantly we hit it off. Brad is just one of those guys that has so much enthusiasm for what he’s doing that you can’t help but be drawn toward it. Like I said in this episode we cover an array of topics and I really enjoyed having these guys on. John is definitely the first professional fishing guy we have had on the show but we won’t hold that against him because he is a diehard hunter as well and it was cool to hear the story behind his first elk hunt this year. I will also warn you that we get into some cooking and BBQ talk which is probably going to make you super hungry. Hope you guys enjoy the show and stay tuned because they were nice enough to do a pretty sweet giveaway for you guys somewhere in the episode.

OnX is the most trusted resource for public/private mapping available in all 50 states. The On X Hunt app will turn your phone into one an amazing hunting tool allowing you to not only navigate heavily public/private areas, but with base maps, you can use satellite, topo, and Hybrid mode to navigate with land features. The On X hunt app allows you save maps and be able to use the app and the GPS while in airplane mode. Yes, it is possible through some kind of magic wizardry you can have your phone in airplane mode or have zero service and be able to track exactly where you are. One of my favorite features of On X Hunt is the ability to scout on my desktop mark points of interest, and then automatically have them on my mobile device so when I am in the woods I can see my saved areas, trails, and waypoints. On X hunt also has the ability to add layers such as roadless areas, timer cuts, burns, and much more. On X Hunt gives me a ton of confidence as a hunter and is just a must-have in today’s informant.
