Gritty Podcast

This is the GRITTY podcast where we talk about ALL things GRITTY. Life is not easy… life isn’t fair, it never was and it will NEVER be. A good life takes GRIT--because the best things in life come from hard work, sacrifice, resolve, determination, and perseverance--because GRIT means never quitting, it means coming back time and time again until you succeed. So on this show we talk hunting, we talk outdoors, we talk conservation, we talk family and life. We talk fitness. And we talk strength. Strength of body, strength of mind and strength of character. Prioritize who you are and who you want to be. Get GRITTY--because life isn’t fair and a little GRIT can make all the difference.

In this podcast I have a lot of fun talking with Aron Snyder about Fieldcraft. Aron shares some valuable bits of advice and some deep insights such as the following:  

What is fieldcraft you may ask? 

Although snares and mushrooms are discussed briefly in this podcast the focus is more on what you need to know to survive in a wilderness, survival situation. We talk about how to start fires, how not to get lost but how to handle the situation if you do. We talk about Aron Ralston and whether you should chop your arm off like he did and if you do, how should you do it? In a moment of vulnerability I confess that I carry two GPS units to which Aron has a difficult time not saying something snarky. Hey, I’m easily lost. 

Of course, the podcast would not be complete without a few tangents, which, this week, includes discussions about non-hunters, photography, film and our upcoming hunts this year. 

Main Points:
Be prepared. 
Physical fitness.
Know your limitations.
Practice.

"Generally panic is what kills you in a survival situation." 

Snyderisms:

I'm not going to go into what twigs and berries and mushrooms you should eat because if you get to that point you're in deep caca. 

If you’re going to be Jeremiah Johnson and start a fire with flint and steel, I highly suggest you practice said task in multiple environments, starting with your backyard and some gasoline because that crap ain’t easy. 

My wife can get lost in a phone booth.

People leave with a T-shirt and a smile.

It’s good to stay alive — you don’t want to die.
