Welcome to Muley Monday! Today I am joined by a good buddy and total backcountry badass. Joey Pyburn has been on the podcast before to chat about elk hunting which he is no stranger to but I think if Joey had to pick his heart lies in chasing big bucks. As a hunter you grew up in a less than well known Mule Deer state Joey has learned to grind it out and find big bucks where most would think didn’t even exist. With a lifetime of experience under his belt, Joey has a ton to bring to the table as well as some great stories. Last year Joey and his hunting partner Ryan Lampers trekked into the unknown of the Idaho Wilderness to pull out two giant bucks. Listening to this story really makes me want to step it up and push a little harder this year and I hope it inspires you as well.
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.
