Welcome to Muley Monday. This week I catch up with my good buddy Brady Miller and chat about our weekend’s scouting trips. We both got our butts kicked and were fooled by the google earth once again! We chatted about how to handle limited scouting time, going back to the drawing board this late in the game and strategies for plan B. Brady has a number of tags this season and like many of us doesn’t have the time to scout them all. We also dive into Brady’s updated gear list and upgrades he is making to this years game plan. Brady is the king of lightweight and I am always blown away at how light he gets down to every year. Brady is running a stoveless meal set up again and we talk about the pro’s and con’s of no hot meals all week.
This year I launched Backcountry Fuel Box, a monthly subscription box for backcountry meals, bars, snacks, gues, and all kinds of great new products you have probably never heard of. It is a killer way to test out new options, or just save money by stashing each box for season. Check it out at backcountryfuelbox.com and save 10% with code TRO.
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.
