I ran into Jim Boorman on a trail outside of town. Jim is 83 now and walks about 4 miles 3 days a week. Seeing him a couple miles up the trail I decided to stop and chat. Turns out he’s a hunter. He asked why I was running and I told him the only reason I run is to stay in shape for hunting season. He proceeded to tell me about shooting a book ram at 82. You best believe I had to get him on the podcast. Jim has also killed 33 elk and to this day still hunts with a 30-06 Remington pump. Enjoy the pod!
