If you didn't make it to the Western Hunting & Conservation Expo in Salt Lake City or haven't attended any hunt expos, we give you the inside look into what they are all about. Matt Howell & Brandon go on a walkabout exploring some of their favorite booths including Phone Skope, AccuBow, Total Archery Challenge and more. We hear about the products at each booth, exciting new things for 2018 & Brandon even gets his face painted. We also sit down with the one and only Tim Wells of Relentless Pursuit. Tim talks about what the wilderness does for him & his family, his brush with death in Africa and why he has the nickname "Slock Master". Tim also talks about his pinnacle moment as a hunter, what's going on with his kids & his upcoming hunts for bear, hippo & crocodile with a SPEAR! This is a podcast you will have to check out on YouTube to experience the walkabout for yourself!
