What a cool episode, today we sit down with Everett and Dani from Montana Master Hunter program. We do talk about the Master Hunter program that they are building but the conversation around Falconry was fascinating. Everett recently started down the path of falconry and we dive into the complicated world of hunting with raptors. Everett’s hawk Grinnell was actually in the studio and we got to watch it fly through the warehouse. Falconry is definitely more involved than I anticipated but truly enjoyed getting an inside look at a day in the life of a falconer.
We also talk about the Montana Master Hunter program and I really like what they are doing with bridging the gap between landowners and hunters. In an era where there is such a division between the two I think it is important to educate folks and take hunting to the next level.
This Podcast also brought to you by our good friends over at On X. Another great gift that is a must-have for every hunter, the On X app goes on your phone or tablet and gives you the best mapping and GPS system whether you are in service or out. Know where you stand. Knowing exactly where you are and where the public/ private boundary is often critical to having a successful hunt. More than that I love the ability to scout on my computer, set points of interest, and automatically have them on my phone when I get to the field. I have so many friends that didn’t have On X Maps before because they didn’t think they needed it and now can’t rave about how great it is. Save 20% off your new membership when you use the TRO code.
