Welcome to episode number 279 of the podcast. Today I am joined by my good friend and neighbor Charles Post as well his colleague Tyler Sharp, the creative director for Modern Huntsman. Modern Huntsman is a new take on a hunting magazine is you can even call it that, it is more like a bi-annual book. On the home page of the site, it reads “Modern Huntsman exists to be a place where both hunters and non-hunters can come together on the topics that unite us, rather than bickering over the differences that have polarized us.” This is big, and I think the very important for the big picture. In this episode, we discuss many topics that are political hotbeds so to speak. Although the three of us have very different backgrounds and were introduced to hunting in different ways, we can have an honest and open conversation and still respect each other’s views. This is Modern Huntsman in a nutshell. An open dialog that is restoring the perception of hunting. We had a great conversation on a wide range of topics from grizzlies to yard deer. I always love chatting with Charles and had a great time getting to know Tyler as well. Hope you guys enjoy this great conversation with Tyler and Charles. Also, do me a favor and check out Modern Huntsman, sign up to get your copy of the upcoming issue that is coming out in October. Tyler is also giving you $5 off a single issue or subscription with the Promo Code: TRO.
This episode is brought to you by GoWild the ultimate app for hunting, fishing and the outdoors. We Actually just had Brad and John from goWild on the show and had a blast getting to know those guys and getting a behind the scenes look at why they built the app and some of the really cool features within the app. The GoWild app has a ton of cool features but one of the coolest features is the proprietary new scoring system that allows you to enter in your trophies and be scored on much more than just the inches of antler. Their scoring algorithm takes into consideration things like the weapon used, distance of the shot, public or private land. This gives you the ability to compete with your buddies even if he shot his buck with a bow and you shot yours with a rifle. The app also allows you to log time for things like hours scouted, or checking trail cameras. The team over at goWild understands that it’s more than just how many inches of horn a buck has, it is about the whole experience. Go check out the episode we and then go download the app. Its free and the best part is they do a ton of gear giveaways all the time!
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 promo code TRO to save 20% off your badass target system.
