One of the most successful and hardest working hunters I know is Justin Shaffer. Retired army ranger and now full time director at Kuiu Justin has worked extremely hard to get where he is and really to have the success in the field that he has.
In this podcast we talk about what sets him apart from everyone else, (though he’s too humble to admit that he is in a league of his own). Years of discipline and honing his craft have allowed him to set very big personal goals and then crush those goals year after year. I love that Justin came from nothing and did this all on military salary. Justin is such a great example of how you can craft your life to be what you want it to be. Since the first time I ever met Justin he has been someone I would consider a friend and someone I want to emulate. Hope you guys enjoy this conversation with a solid human being.
