Join us for an amazing interview with the man, the myth, and the legend, Alaskan Hunting expert Roy Roth. Roy is one of the greatest, most humble hunters in the world and has been getting it done as a DIY hunter for years and years. Roy has been able to take 9 dall rams, and 9 brown bear with his bow and has made some amazing stories along the way.
Today I am joined by my good buddy and California hog hunting guide, Tony Lombardi. If you guys want to go on a hog hunt you need to go with Tony. I did a hunt with Tony 3 years ago and we have been close friends ever since. He’s a great guy and has some killer hog hunting in Cali not only with a ton of hogs but it is beautiful country hunting pigs in rolling hill country of California. In this episode, we chat about hunting in California and cover everything from hunting as a resident to applying as a non-resident. We cover public land pig hunting and even applications for access. Whether you are a resident or a non-resident you should pull some great info from this episode.
GoHUNT.com just added California to their growing list of states and did a great job with the launch. I can’t say enough good things about goHUNT.com, they continue to add new states and grow their information. If you listen to Tag Tuesday, you need a goHUNT account. That is all there is to it, I use goHUNT religiously and I love the platform. If you fancy yourself a hunter, you need to go sign up for goHUNT and become an insider member.

Sign up now with the TRO code and get $50 automatically in your account to spend in the goHUNT Gear Shop.
In Fact, Oregon is one of those states you could research within goHUNT to find a great over the counter tag to fill your season.
Today I am joined by Calvin Halladay of Sheep Mountain Outfitters to talk about Oregon tag application strategy. In this episode, we dive in to my old home state and cover how the point creep in Oregon is affecting certain hunts and how some of those top units are doing. Cal spends as much time as anyone in the many of the top units and has a great heartbeat on the pulse of the top end Bulls, Bucks Sheep and Goats. We cover how to apply as well as who should be applying in Oregon as a non resident, as well as some things to avoid. We also cover Oregon from the perspective of hunters who just want to hunt as Oregon has a ton of over the counter potential for bow archery elk and deer.
Today’s Tag Tuesday is also brought to you by the goWild App. If you are tired of all the drama on other social media sites, download the goWild App. It’s everything you love about hunting fishing and the great outdoors without the drama.
