What’s up ladies and gents, welcome to the podcast. I am really excited to share today’s podcast with you guys. I don’t often get star struck but it was a huge honor to have a guy like Nate Adams on the podcast. Most of you might not know who he even is unless of course, you are into motorcycles. Then I am sure you in a mix of excitement and curiosity as was I when I learned Nate was into chasing bulls with his bow. I had a blast talking to Nate and hearing his story, not only the ups and downs of his career but hunting and archery helped pull him out of the low points in his life. Couldn’t be happier with how this turned out and again pumped to share it with you guys. Big thanks to Nate for joining me, he is such a humble and down to earth guy. I have a lot of respect for him and everything he has accomplished.
One note on Backcountry Fuel Box. First off it is going really well and I can’t thank you guys enough for all the support. Love all the feedback and sounds like a ton of you really look forward to getting the box each month. If you are interested in stocking up for next season or maybe you want to join but haven’t yet we are doing a killer Holiday Special. We have a special 12 month Gift Subscription that is 25% off what you would normally pay. The holiday special brings it down to $25 per box. That is by far our lowest price and will not be available after December 20th I can promise you that. If you’re like me and you don’t know what to have your wife this is the perfect gift because each month you get a box of awesome snacks for hunting, scouting, or maybe when your home alone and don’t feel like cooking. Check it out, I will link to the gift box in the show notes and remember December 20th offer is gone. You will have to pay full price.
MTNTOUGH Fitness Lab located in Bozeman, MT, has established itself as the elite source for improving mental toughness, physical preparation, and performance research for the backcountry hunter. I personally tested their pre-season Backcountry Hunter program here in Bozeman, with Dustin Diefenderfer, the founder of MTNTOUGH and I loved it. It is a great workout that will test you and push you to the limits physically and mentally.
Their online programs are 90-days, all video based, and is delivered through the private MTNTOUGH site that is accessible on any device. Think of it as a private social training platform specifically built for Backcountry Hunters. They now have a 90-day online program for pre-season and a brand new 90-day online program for post-season. The post-season program is specifically built to pack strength back on to a hunter after a long season in the field and will be available Jan 1. An ideal winter program to capitalize on all the work you have put in this hunting season. Make sure to go www.mtntough.com to take a look at these programs and there you will also find a few of their favorite workouts as free downloads, including a no-gear and a heavy pack workout.
