EPISODE 11: 200 Days In The Field What Are You Eating? With Aron Snyder
This week on Gritty Bowmen we meet again with Aron Snyder of Kifaru International. Aron is the previous owner of Rokslide, which is an internet hot spot for all things related to DIY backcountry hunting.
In this podcast you’ll hear Aron’s strategies for taking care of his physical health--like how he eats in the backcountry and how he tries to sleep. You’ll hear why these things are important. And perhaps you’ll gain some valuable insight on how you can improve our own experience on your next backcountry hunt.
