Welcome to the Muley Monday segment of The Rich Outdoors. We have been on a streak of interviews with under the radar Idaho killers and today’s show is right in line with that Streak. Josh Cooper and his crew have definitely got the mountains of Idaho dialed. In this episode, we talk a lot about various hunting dates throughout the Idaho general rifle season and things Josh looks for in a good October hunting area. Josh has found a lot of success understanding transition areas which on paper can be easy to explain but in practice frustrating to say the least. We chat about how to located good transition area, how to hunt them and keys to a good plan B. If you hunt Mule deer in October this is a podcast you’ll want to add to the save list.

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.
