Hey everybody, I hope everyone had a great New Years. If you love to travel and hunt this episode is for you. Craig Van Arsdale is one of those guys you don’t hear much about but he definitely has a thirst for adventure. Craig recently traveled all the way to Greenland to Experience a muskox and caribou hunt in a gorgeous piece of the world. This sounds like a great adventure and in fact, Craig has been fortunate to have done quite a few adventure hunts. We chat a lot about traveling and hunting expeditions. We also talk rental cars of all things and the pain of trying to hunt out of a rental vehicle with some pretty comical stories about such. Hope you guys enjoy.
A big thank you to everyone who is coming down to the live event this weekend with Born and Raised and Phelps. We weren’t really sure how many people would want to come listen to us BS about hunting as this is the first live show but you guys sold out the theatre in just a few days so huge thank you for that and for the support. I know there were a ton of people that wanted to go but didn’t get tickets so I am sure we will do another show this year at some point. There will not be any tickets at the door just an FYI I know a lot of folks have asked that but there are no tickets left to sell. For those who did get tickets though it is going to be a good time and we have some surprises for you guys so look forward to seeing and hanging out with everyone this Saturday.

This episode is brought to you by On X Hunt. I recently harvested a great bull in Montana and I owe a huge part of that to my OnX. This was an area that I had hunted years ago but because of On X Hunt I was actually able to find a new access point to get into the area from a new way and save myself a lot of miles. For that hunt, I actually spent a ton of time on my laptop scouting areas and marking locations which are super cool because then when I get out in the field all of those points of interest I marked on my computer are now right there on my phone. It all worked out really well and I ended up finding a really cool bull and was lucky enough to harvest him. Another really cool new feature of the OnX hunt app is that after I shot the bull I was able to share that location with my buddy Butch who was coming in to help me pack out. which made it super convenient for him to know exactly where to find me. On X Hunt is hands down my best hunting tool I have for under $100 dollars and highly recommend getting it. Check it out and use The Rich Outdoors promo code TRO to save %20 off your membership.
