For over a year, behind the scenes MTNTOUGH has been building an online training program specifically designed for Backcountry Hunters They have assembled an impressive team for this task, including a former Navy Seal, a former Army Colonel who instructed physical education at Westpoint, and couple trainers with decades of experience. I tested the program here in Bozeman, with Dustin Diefenderfer, the founder of MTN TOUGH and let me tell you this program will kick your butt. Over the years I have done a ton of various work out programs. with the last couple years spending most of my time running and using kettle-bells I was in pretty good shape when I started this workout and quickly realized this program is going to crush muscles I forgot I had. Make sure to go www.mtntough.com to get on the waiting list to be one of the first to get access to the program in June. Oh, and MTN TOUGHis giving away3 LIFETIME MEMBERSHIPSto 3 winners who have their name on the waiting list.
This episode brought to you by On X maps. On X is the most trusted private/ public mapping system available and any more I don’t go anywhere without my On X maps. The On X Hunt app available on your phone turns your smartphone into a handheld GPS that works with or without service. With over 400 map overlays the possibilities are endless. I love the ability to switch from topo to satellite, to hybrid modes, allowing you to see actual terrain thickness. The On X hunt app allows you to share locations with your buddies extremely easily and I find myself using this feature all the time. You can also log into your On X account from multiple sources allowing you to scout from your desktop or tablet and explore with confidence with your smartphone or GPS. On X membership is a must have for any serious western hunter. Hunt with confidence and know where you stand with an On x membership. save 20% off your membership when you sign up or renew withThe Rich Outdoors promo code TRO
