ElkShape Podcast EP 71 - Sportsmen’s Alliance

May 10, 2019

Today we sit down to record with Brian Lynn of Sportsmen’s Alliance.  We as sportsmen face a massive challenge of removing the societal disconnect from nature.  The animal rights movement that aims to end all hunting is growing and so is their budget. Their unity, reach, and resources enables them to buy lobbyists and influencers which is why we are seeing more ballot initiatives, legal challenges and appeals, when it comes to dismantling our hunting privilege.

We discuss as hunters, how we can serve our own best interest, where we can effectively put our money and time to see the most success in the courtroom.  Sportsman’s Alliance has been around for decades and their sleeves are rolled up doing their damnedest for our cause.  We hunters need to stop shooting ourselves in the foot by tearing each other down.  We continue to make ourselves look bad on social and mainstream media which ultimately leads to division at the ballot box and over legislation.  Now, more than ever we need to help the Sportsmen’s Alliance and their team of lawyers fight the good fight in the name of conservation and hunting opportunities for generations to come.

ElkShape Podcast EP 70 - DIY Alaska Moose

ElkShape Podcast EP 70 - DIY Alaska Moose

May 6, 2019

Ted Ramirez Jr. is on the show today to inspire us about the highly romanticized DIY Alaskan Moose hunt.  Admittedly, it's always been on my radar, but I haven't committed to it yet.  The main reason is I would not want to miss out on elk hunting here in the lower 48.  Ted also breaks down his personal fitness journey, and what it is like working in the Hunting Industry.  Ted's Dad started Caribou Gear over a decade ago - makers of the ultra light synthetic game bags.  If you are serious about hunting, you owe it to yourself to not use cheese cloth.  I used to because I simply didn't know what I didn't know.  As a hunter, my concern is a higher meat yield and better tasting game meat.

April 29, 2019

Sitting down with a blue collar Oregon dude that has conquered much in his life.  At age 46 Scott can back squat over 400lbs and has harvested 19 elk with archery equipment.  He wasn't always fit and out crushing Train to Hunt challenges, there was a time when he struggled with his weight almost weighing 300lbs.  Scott has an inspiring story of taking control of his life and using elk hunting to find the best version of himself.

Today we talk about his fitness journey, his long elk hunting learning curve, and how he approaches elk hunting and fitness year round.

ElkShape Podcast EP 67 - Spring Bear Q & A

April 15, 2019

 I love talking about spring bear hunting, and who better to chat with than my very own Father and partner in crime, Rod Staton.  My dad and I have been doing public land spring bear hunting in Idaho since 2007.  We've learned so much together and had some incredible adventures along the way.  Today, we tackle some listener questions on spring bear hunting, topics like where to find bears, how to glass for bears, baiting techniques, and the best times to hit the mountain.

ElkShape Podcast EP 66 - Train To Hunt

April 12, 2019

Today we're recording with longtime friend Kenton Clairmont of Train To Hunt.  We have a rich history, in fact I know Kenton since 2004.  We talk about the old days when we started a gym together called CrossFit Spokane Valley (I still own and operate) and how we started Train To Hunt (he still owns and operates).  We talk about business, fitness, training, elk hunting and our families.  Kenton and I have always been able to pick up where we left off, and he's one of the most down to earth people I know.

This was a fun podcast to record, we go in great depth on what Train To Hunt Challenges are all about and how he's going to help out with next ElkShape Camp.

ElkShape Podcast EP 62 - Josh Boyd

ElkShape Podcast EP 62 - Josh Boyd

March 18, 2019

Here's what you need to know on this episode, Josh Boyd resides in Northwest Montana and is in his mid-forties.  He is probably one of the most highly regarded DIY backcountry bowhunters that I know.  He's written hundreds of articles for publications and websites on numerous topics that pertain to hunting out West.  Josh is a super humble dude, but it was very special to talk one-on-one in person and record this episode.  We were at a crowded coffee shop at the time of this recording, but the information we cover is incredible for both rookie and veteran elk hunters.

Josh works as a biologist and has logged more than a lifetime of experience in the woods.  He's a woodsman, student, father, and teacher.  Your ears need to perk up on this episode, we cover some next level elk hunting tactics.
