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.

  • Why Ryan and Joe took off to higher, deeper country to find more mature bucks. 
  • The importance of wearing Microspikes in a terrain like this. 
  • Why Ryan and Joe found disadvantages for having the Sawtooth Tent in this steep country. 
  • Why finding "Kifaru flats" can be difficult in this terrain. 
  • The Hunt Wild boys talk about their expectations and how this trip helped them learn patience, and the deer they took there. 
  • Joey shares how this trip was a good lesson in patience.  
  • Scott shares how he needs to get mentally tougher and the harder a hunt, the better. 
  • Ryan and Joe tell the story of their journey of their 8 day wilderness hunt. 
  • The Hunt Wild boys talk about their stealthy hiking skills.

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.
