In today’s podcast we sit down with a solid group of mountain hunters to talk about what makes them more successful than 90% of other hunters. Dioni Amuchastegui, Travis Nowotny, and Zach Kenner have all been on the podcast before but it is pretty special to have them all on together in a round table format. Dioni, is one the best mule deer hunters I know and puts so much dedication toward finding and killing big bucks. Travis, is one the only hunters I know that is massively successful at harvesting great animals of every species. In this podcast travis how he is able to be so efficient with his hunting season and we talk about the importance of time efficiency. As a busy person myself, this is so huge for me and something I preach to others constantly. I have interviewed hundreds of great hunters over the years and I can promise you this is a very common denominator between great hunters.
We also talk about Alaska hunting. Zach Kenner a Washington native, moved up to Alaska and has taken full advantage of all that it has to offer. Like most of us dream of doing Zach has been on some pretty epic sheep and brown bear hunts and we talk about those experiences and really what it takes to just go up and hunt DIY for both.
