Welcome to Muley Monday of The Rich Outdoors. Today is not your average legendary old-school killer. I commonly get tons of questions from new hunters so I thought it would be interesting to get a new hunter on the show and talk about the learning curve. Tyler Cole (@tyler_the_muley_reaper) may not be Jason Carter but I can tell Tyler is going to be a killer very shortly. Tyler, even though he just got back into hunting a few years ago is obsessed with hunting. He has been full on bitten by the backcountry bug. Tyler will be great because he is constantly learning and sponging up every bit of information he can get his hands on. I wasn’t sure how well this podcast would go considering the lack of success, but I really liked how it turned out. Tyler has no lack of effort or willpower and brings a great perspective to other new hunters. So many people don’t ever get into hunting seriously because they lack a mentor or someone to show them the ropes. Yet, Tyler is the perfect example to show that you don’t need anyone, the information available to everyone, you just need to put the work in.
This episode is brought to you by On X maps. On X is a must-have tool for any serious hunter. With the season just around the corner, I am constantly using my On X to e-scout and learn everything I can about all of my upcoming hunts. On X maps works across all of my devices so I can scout areas and mark locations on my desktop and they automatically appear on my phone when I am in the field with my smartphone. On X maps even works on your phone with or without service. I just save the maps I need and even deep in the wilderness my On X Hunt app will show me right where I am and show me all my waypoints from e-scouting. On X is available in all 50 states and I can’t speak highly enough about this system, it is truly a must-have for me.

Today’s podcast brought to you by Solo Targets. Solo Targets are life-sized ultra-realistic 2D targets. I have been obsessed with the solo targets and love the realism of having to pick a spot on an animal and not just shoot a spot. With Solo Targets, you can turn any block target into a realistic hunting scenario for far cheaper than a 3D target. Honestly, I like the realism of the 2D targets overshooting a 3d Target. I also really like that all of the targets are actual life size target which really gives you a feel for looking at that animal at different yardages. I just got the new mule deer buck target and that thing is badass. The target alone will give you buck fever. We set it up in the field with just a small block target behind it which is such a realistic added pressure, if you don’t hit the vitals that arrow is gone. Just that added bit of pressure makes you really hone in on your target. head over to solotargets.com and use The Rich Outdoors code TRO to save 20% off your badass target system.
