We have talked a lot about Wildlife Conservation & Wildlife Preservation on the podcast but, there is still a major disconnect today with understanding the fundamentals of it all. So, we are pleased to finally welcome the President of the Pope & Young Club, Jim Willems, to clear it all up.
Trevon Stoltzfus of Outback Outdoors, filmmaker and Producer is no stranger to the podcast and he is back to talk in depth about his new film that is being released today. The Florida Mountains in southern NM boasts an impressive elevation change of approximately 2,400’ from the desert floor and is home to some of the most elusive animals in the lower 48, the Persian (Bezoar) Ibex.
We welcome Director of Sales & Marketing at HHA Sports, Scott Bakken and Event Coordinator for Pope and Young Club, Heather Knight. We catch up with Scott & Heather about what HHA and Pope & Young have been up to so far in 2018 and Scott shares his latest adventures at some archery challenges and a close encounter with a rattlesnake on a pig hunt in Texas.
We have the pleasure of welcoming three of the men behind the magic of The Western Hunter TV & The Western Hunter Magazine, father and son Chris & Mark Denham & Producer & Co-Host Nate Simmons. Chris shares the journey of starting Western Hunter Magazine to beginning the TV show that is now in it's 6th season.
This week we have a very special podcast for you that brings some of the things Brandon loves most together in 1 place. We have Hunting, Conservation, Family, Friends, Podcasting and HOCKEY! From the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado and home of the Colorado Avalanche, Brandon is joined by Sportsman Channel Hunting TV Hosts Jason Matzinger, Trevon Stoltzfus & Willi Schmidt for the Avalanche vs Minnesota Wild hockey game & viewing of Jason's latest film #PROJECTELK.
For most, this week's guest does not need an introduction but, for those who have not heard of Jason Matzinger, he is an award winning Film and Television Producer and host of Into High Country on the Sportsman Channel.
We have another stacked show for you with an amazing guest who has been nominated & is now running for 2018 NRA Board of Directors. Kristy Titus grew up with a conservational mindset and a strong belief that with dedication, integrity, and the backbone of friends, family and faith, you can accomplish anything you set your mind to. She truly believes this has shaped her into who she is today.
The team has been busy! Jason DeWeese & Matt Howell join Brandon to catch up since the New Year. They share their recent hunting adventures with their kids and what it was like teaching them all aspects of field to plate, Brandon & Jason talk about their hunts in NM & AZ and what they learned about themselves instead of filling the freezer, and Matt talks about what a solo hunt can do to test you as a person, but what hunting with other people does on a deeper level, to create friendships & long lasting memories.
