HHH Episode #49: 2017 Idaho Wilderness Hunt- Patience, Hard Work, and Mental Toughness with Joe Pyburn, Hunt Wild, and Scott Carr.

This is was a trip Ryan has been waiting for most of his hunting career.  He shared the experience with Joey Pyburn, Scott Carr, Jeff Lusk, Eric Foreslin, and Paul Haller. The podcast was recorded at a firehouse so there is some sound interruptions and the quality isn't our best, but it should be good.  

All this for a deer.
— Scott Carr

Episode #35: Food For Thought Friday- My Husband's Mistress

Episode #35:  Food For Thought Friday- My Husband's Mistress

This is a long story. One that has taken me nearly 20 years to write. If you don’t have a relationship in your life, then this story may not interest you, but if you love, are, or know anyone who has a passion greater than most, you may get something from it. It wasn’t an easy story to live or write about. It’s not easy to share our flaws, our secrets, our fears. Relationships, especially marriages, usually always have something to teach us. My teacher was coming to love a man who loves hunting, and through that, realizing that I didn’t need to make him choose. He could love us both.

HHH Episode #13: Introduction to Joey Pyburn, Ryan's lifelong hunting partner.

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!
