Hello all! Ryan and I are very excited for you to join us for this episode. A while back Ryan and I were asked by Josh Nordwick of the “Reality Tunnel Podcast” to be guests on his show. We got a lot of great feedback from his followers, so we thought we would share it too.
Today's podcast is all about our busiest time of the year: Harvest season. Whether it's food from the garden, forest, or an animal that Ryan takes, preserving and getting these foods ready for the winteris a lot of work.
Ryan and Hillary share their stores about harvest season, some of their recommendations on dehydration and canning, and they share a few stories from years gone by.
Ryan spent most of his young life in nature hiking, scouting, and hunting. Skills learned from his father shaped his love for the outdoors and the a healthy respect for the balance of life. In today's podcast, Ryan takes his oldest daughter Pailey Belle hiking and possibly bear hunting for the 1st time. Even though she is only 8, not old enough to hunt by herself, she is very excited to be on the hunt with her Dad.
Ryan meets up with the Hunt Wild film boys, Jeff Lust, Paul Hallerr, and Eric Forslin. He interviews them about Paul's 2017 Nevada Mule Deer Hunt, where he drew the same unit that Ryan did. This is a fun conversation that travels through the high country of Nevada and Paul Haller's mule deer hunt.
This hunt was dedicated to Paul's father who died only 7 months ago. In his own words from a recent IG @p_hallerr post:
In this podcast Ryan and Hillary sit down at the Oregon Waterfowl Festival/NW Elk Camp with Scott and Beth Carr of Hammer and Chisel. They talk about a wide range of topics from hunting, health, marriage, and in the end they all get personal about themselves and what they are most grateful for (including Ryan and Hillary).
We've known Zach Kenner for the last year from his Youtube channel- Hard Working Hunter, but a few weeks ago, Ryan got the pleasure of shooting with Zach at the NW Mountain Challenge at Stevens Pass Washington. Ryan then ventured over to Zach's Eastern Washington home and sat down for a great conversation about his lifelong love and exposure to hunting.
Happy 4th of July 2017! If you are an American, this day is synonymous with summer, fireworks, and celebration! It seems there is no better way to get this day going than with a fabulous group of ladies talking about the freedoms we hold dear! Jana Waller of Skullbound TV and Kristy Titus of Pursue the Wild take an hour out of their busy speaking schedules at the NW Elk Camp in Oregon, to talk with Dr. Hillary about all kinds of things!
We had no idea when we started this podcast, that within months of launching we would be talking to people like Tim Burnett of Solohntr. For years Ryan has been a fan of Solohntr on the Outdoor Channel, since he has been a solo hunter for most of his hunting career. Like most of the amazing people we have met in the last year, Train to Hunt seems to be the common denominator, which is where Ryan met Tim.
In the hunting world, Kristi Titus is a celebrity. With stunning eyes, big smile, and a laugh that is immediately recognizable, Kristi's appeal and down to earth heart is like a breath of fresh air. She loves who she is, what she stands for, and has big goals to share the "culture" of hunting with anyone who will listen.
It's important in life to have a best friend, and if that best friend is your cousin, it's even better. Ryan talks today with his cousin/hunting partner Joey Pyburn. Joey is Ryan's exact opposite, loquacious and social, but together they make a hard working pair of backcountry partners. Look for Joey to be a regular part of our podcast!
