On this episode of Gritty Bowmen, we hang out with Casey and Jordan Harbertson of MTN OPS in the hotel after midnight at the Total Archery Challenge in Utah. This is just a fun podcast among good friends. Mostly we talk about Casey and Jordan’s recent trip to New Zealand where they hunted Tahr and Red Stag. It’s good stuff. Makes me want to take a trip to Middle-Earth someday soon for my own epic adventure
On this episode of Gritty Bowmen we talk about launching the Aron Snyder Photography website and Aron shares more details on how to get those outdoor shots.
On this episode of Gritty Bowmen we visit with friends Russ Meyer and Christopher Claunch, post Train To Hunt event at Cascadian Bowmen, in Noti Oregon. On this podcast we talk about all sorts of things; we talk about Claunch’s fitness journey. We talk about the Gritty Bowmen early days, which aren’t really, all that long ago. We talk about bow shooting. Claunch and I geek-out on entrepreneurship and some of the many influences that have impacted our lives, and more. Christopher Claunch and Russ Meyer couldn’t be more opposite. And yet, they are friends. I like that. And these two men inspire me; albeit in different ways. I hope there are a few bits and pieces in this podcast that positively impact your life, like they impacted mine.
On this episode of Gritty Bowmen Aron and Brian talk about the tradlife, the recent British Columbia Bear Hunt, the Total Archery Challenge in Snowbird UT, Aron's hunting style preference and previous hunting experiences and more.
On this episode of Gritty Bowmen we visit with Matt Anderson, his wife Sharon, and Brian Fraiser and his wife Kara. This is just a fun discussion among friends. Matt and Brian competed against each-other at the Enumclaw Washington Train To Hunt event, but partnered-up and competed in the Team Event for Oregon. I have a fun hanging out with these two couples and getting to know them a little better. Matt Anderson won the Washington TTH event and Brian Fraiser came in 2nd place. Together, they took second-place in the Team division in Oregon. In this podcast we talk about how they prepare for Train To Hunt--both have very different preparations; but each of them have achieved a high-level of fitness. We also talk about supplements and we laugh a lot.
It was a pleasure meeting their wives, Kara and Sharon, and gathering their input too. Whether you are into Train To Hunt or not, I believe you’ll enjoy this podcast. At the end of the day, we’re all hunters and we have a passion for the outdoors. I hope you laugh; I hope you learn something new and I hope feel inspired by these gritty people.
On this episode of Gritty Bowmen, we visit with Shannon Mobbs and Cory Ford of Angry Spike Productions and we talk Roosevelt Elk hunting. I remember when I bought my first Angry Spike Productions DVD more than 10 years ago. I bought the DVD from good friend Cory Miller, who was in a couple of those early DVDs. I remember watching these guys call-in elk, on over the counter tags in thick coastal, rain forest country--Shannon Mobbs can hunt Roosevelt elk. He’s a Roosevelt killing machine and his wall at home displays some amazing coastal bulls, which I have included in the video version of this podcast. He’s also been blessed to shoot a Rocky Mountain Bull Elk, on a draw tag, that scores just shy of 400 inches. Shannon knows how to hunt elk. He’s been consistently getting it done in the elk woods for multiple decades. On this podcast he shares his opinions and experiences calling-in elk. It’s a fascinating show whether you’re into Roosevelt elk hunting or not--in many ways, an elk, is an elk, is an elk. Angry Spike Productions quit producing DVDs a few years ago. So, we got them set-up online and now you can digitally download their old DVDs on a link on the Gritty Bowmen Website. Just go to grittybowmen.com and click the VHX link and follow the prompts from there. Type in the coupon code ‘GRITTY’ at checkout and you can get 50% off each DVD download. It’s a cool thing. I tremendous much respect for anybody who attempts to film and produce video content from their hunts--these guys have done it. The footage is a little old but the call-ins and the bugling are solid. I learned a lot from watching these guys hunt on these old films. Listen to this podcast and see what you think. And then go download one of their videos from our website and enjoy some raw and real roosevelt elk hunting. And hopefully, these guys will produce a new film this year--get on Instagram and follow them at AngrySpikeProductions. And feel free to send them your questions and to ask them about producing a new and updated elk hunting film for 2016--rumor has it they’re sitting on tons of great elk hunting video.
