ElkShape Podcast EP 80 - LIVE from Western Hunting Summit

ElkShape Podcast EP 80 - LIVE from Western Hunting Summit

July 12, 2019

This episode is designed to create action for the listener.  On the drive home from the Western Hunting Summit I record my thoughts on the event, where I saw weaknesses in some of the attendees and I challenge the listeners to identify their areas of opportunity when it comes to creating the best version of themselves.  At the summit in Bozeman, MT we had subject matter experts lecture on certain topics to help newer western hunters evolve their game faster.  Some of the areas or topics covered were:

  • Brian Barney - Backcountry Hunting
  • Ryan Lampers - Backcountry Nutrition
  • Hillary Lampers - Longevity
  • Mark Livesay - Digital E Scouting
  • MTN Tough Fitness - Mental Toughness
  • Randy Newberg - Public Lands
  • Dan Staton - Leveraging Hunting

This whole experience was so much fun and there's a lot of information covered, so I dive into how I got the campers to hone in on making progress everyday.  In the cast, I go over my story on fitness and hunting and how they collided to bring about ElkShape.  As a bonus, I injected about 30 minutes of Mark Livesay's lecture on creating your hunt plan properly.  Some really insightful information and we hope to get Mark on this podcast soon to dive deeper into the topic which undoubtedly gets overlooked.

Today we record with the Purgatory Bros. -  Joe Mitchell and Jaysen Dunnavant.  Two passionate blue collar elk hunters from Oregon who have produced some amazing hunting films.  These two hard working regular guys created On Foot Films and produced 6 bad ass films that are extremely authentic.  We focus on their two first films where they bring the audience along on their self guided public land elk hunts in Oregon.  These guys are the real deal and pioneered the unscripted approach to filming elk hunts.

ElkShape Podcast EP 76 - Bear Hunt Winner Bryce Peters & Solo Backcountry Hunting

ElkShape Podcast EP 76 - Bear Hunt Winner Bryce Peters & Solo Backcountry Hunting

June 14, 2019

Today we record while driving the Instagram Bear Hunt Winner Bryce Peters to the airport as we finished up the spring bear hunt in Idaho.  Bryce was a complete stranger prior to winning this hunt, and we met at camp and hunted for bears together all week.  Getting to know Bryce was a true pleasure, we also had Mark Boardman & Erik Barber of Vortex Optics in camp as well.  It was a very challenging week of bear hunting in Idaho as the bear rut hadn't kicked in yet, weather was hot and dry, and we struggled from the word go.

Other interesting topics covered in the cast is Bryce's backcountry learning curve, how he's evolved as a solo hunter and some of his adventures from the Frank Church wilderness in Idaho.  We also get into his background in finance and go over some of his investment strategies and retirement angles that he's learned while being in the industry.  We both are striving for financial independence so it's pretty exciting to learn how he's managed debt and kept himself whole after college.

Tony Mudd is almost 60 years old, he probably doesn't look a day over forty though.  He's a physical specimen and legendary archer.  He's one animal away from completing the North America Super Slam with archery equipment.  He's also one hell of an elk hunter and knows a thing or two about staying in shape year round.  We are super lucky to sit down with this guy and pick his brain on how he has been consistently successful with his bow in several different mountain ranges throughout North America.

We also announce the winner's of the onXhunt giveaway, 5 folks were selected to receive one year memberships to onXhunt.  Check it out!
