Welcome to Muley Monday of The Rich Outdoors this podcast is exclusively for Patreon supports so if you want in head over to www.patreon.com/therichoutdoors. First off this podcast is pretty much pure gold if you hunt Mule Deer. This is one of those conversations that gets me all kinds of jacked up for hunting season. Jeff Baird is the owner of Strip Taxidermy in southern Utah and not only gets piles of giant bucks through his studio but also knows how to chase giants as well. A couple of years back Jeff and I were chatting at a trade show in his Bairds Beard Oil Booth and he was telling me about this old timer who could dry ground track like nobody you had ever seen. An old BLM guy who could go for miles with his youth model backpack and a can of peaches. To say the least, I was riveted. This was the kind of story legends are made of. In this podcast Jeff shares some of the secrets that he has learned in following the footsteps of this legend as well as some unbelievable stories of dry ground tracking skills. Like I said if you like big bucks this is a must listen.
As a very talented taxidermist, Jeff and I also cover how to prep your animal for a great mount and the dos and do nots of cape management. I gotta admit I might be guilty of a few of these. None the less, everyone should have these simple skills just in case you harvest that buck of a lifetime and want to have it mounted.
