Muley Monday is back! For all of you Muley Freaks who love hearing stories of big muley bucks The Rich Muley Monday segment is right up your alley. To kick off Muley Monday this year I am joined by my buddy Hjalmar Hedman who is originally from Sweden. Hjalmar didn’t really grow up hunting but was a board sports fanatic. When he finally picked up archery and then hunting he became a fanatic and emerged himself if everything he could get his hands on. With zero guidance when getting into hunting, Hjalmar has a pretty epic first hunt story. Following the exact guidance of a book published in 1883, Theodore VanDyke The Still Hunter. Hjalmar was still hunting the hills outside of L.A. and managed to harvest a buck. With early success, Hjalmar continued to learn and expand his knowledge. In this episode, we dive into his early success but we also talk about his learning curve and not having any hunting mentor to learn from. We also cover advice to new hunters and tactics he’s developed over the years. I am excited to start talking about big bucks again and glad Hjalmar could be the first episode. Hope you guys enjoy this episode with Hjalmar Hedman.

Today’s podcast brought to you by Solo Targets. Solo Targets are life-sized 2D targets that look ultra-realistic. I found these guys because I was looking for a standard 2D elk target for my range and these Solo Skins were exactly what I wanted only way cooler. The Elk Target that I got is huge, it is full size and they use an actual high res image of a bull. One thing I love about this target overshooting a dot is that it is very realistic as far as having to choose a spot on an animal to shoot. After getting the elk skin and loving it the guys from Solo Target sent me their full target system which is a stand for your own standard block target which will work with pretty much any block, couple that with one of the skins and you an awesome life-like target. Not only is a Solo Target cheaper than a full 3D target but I love the added pressure of knowing you have to hit the vitals.
