Welcome to the podcast! Today is episode 273 and also episode 2 of The Walt and Dave Show. I know that doesn’t make a whole lot of sense but if you remember from last year I did a podcast with Walt and Dave which turned out to be a pretty big hit which I was really glad about. For a little context, Walt and Dave are two old-timers, from the area I grew up in and were really some of the first archers of that area. For the record, I am using the term “old timers” as a term of endearment toward my elders. I have sat and listened to many a story from these guys and hope you guys enjoy it as well. In this particular episode of the Walt and Dave show, we are joined by David Brinker Jr. You have probably heard David on other podcasts as he has been in the hunting industry for quite some time. Sidebar, if you’ve been following Corey Jacobsen’s hunt in Oregon right now, you probably saw that poor Brinker took a Valkarie Broadhead to the leg. I have no idea how you pulled that off buddy but thank god it wasn’t worse and hurry up and get healed up so you can get back out there. I was really glad to have Brinker Jr. on the show with us as he is obviously able to pull some great info from his old man. Good Luck to everyone in Oregon and good luck to the elk 101 crew tromping around in some of my old stomping grounds pretty cool to see.
This weekend is opener here in Montana, I still have a few things to wrap up but hoping to load up the horses and pack in for a couple weeks of solo horseback hunting starting the 4th. Really excited for that adventure as a whole. Also, I am taking a mic along with me and will be trying to record some of the adventures along the way to share with you guys. If nothing else it might make for a good documentary on how long it takes Cody to go crazy alone in the backcountry. Anyway, enjoy this episode with Walt and Dave, and Dave. Brinker, get well soon, good luck to everyone this season. We do have plenty of podcasts to keep you entertained while I am hunting so tune in but I will be back with a season update so you all can follow along a bit this year with all of my adventures.
