On today’s episode of the Western Bowhunter Podcast, I sit down with an old friend of mine and we get into some of the nitty-gritty of hunting the state of Colorado. Scott has been bowhunting in the State for much longer than I have and is a wealth of knowledge for those who don’t have as much experience. We get into the three different types of terrain that Colorado has to offer as far as mule deer hunting goes, and why Scott chooses to hunt where he does. I hope this episode, as well as the one from last week, will be beneficial for you as the draw season comes to a close, and thank you very much for listening!

Welcome to the show, today’s episode is another Patrick McManus episode. Todays reading is from the book "Never Sniff a Gift Fish,” chapter titled “The Mountain Car.” I’ve heard a bunch of feedback from the listeners saying that they really enjoy these episodes, which has been awesome for me since I genuinely enjoy reading these chapters and I’m so glad that I’m not the only one. As you may have noticed in some of the previous episodes, the humor in these chapters can really get to me, and I try my best to read as clearly as possible but I can’t help but laugh uncontrollably sometimes. I’ve heard from a few people that it’s pretty funny to just listen to me laughing. So, I hope you enjoy this episode and thank you for tuning in!

Welcome to the show folks. On today’s episode by Bryan Posthumous who works for Colorado’s Parks and Wildlife Public Outreach. We go into great detail about the state of Colorado and dive into many different topics that will be useful for many people who want to hunt the state, but don’t have much experience with how the system works. We cover topics such as general hunting opportunities, different tag opportunities, how the draw system works, how to understand the hunt code that you are applying for, and much of the general regulations that are important to know if you’re wanting to come hunt this state. Bryan is a wealth of knowledge and has most the entire Colorado hunting regulation book memorized. He is also a great example of how we as hunters should act and perform so that we portray a positive light from the hunting community. The state of Colorado does a great job at showing the general public the positivity that hunting has on the ecosystem, which is quite refreshing to see after living in California. The Colorado applications are coming up pretty quick here, so I hope this podcast answers most of the questions that some of you might about how it works, and I hope that you’re successful during this application period. Thank you, Bryan, for being a great guest and sharing all the information with me and the listeners, and thank you for all of you who tune in!

Hey everyone, welcome to the show! On today’s episode, The Stalker Stickbow team gathers around in my living room, and we talk about where the company’s headed and how we got to where we are today. As some of you may know, the team is growing, we’ve added Jake Veldhaus, or as we like to call him, “JV” who will be doing a lot of the computer art design that we need for production. I also sent him to Grady Rawls’s film school a couple weeks ago, and he seems to be picking up the video production quite nicely. He’ll be helping out with editing some of my older content that has never been released, so hopefully here pretty soon we will have some new films coming out for you all to see. I am very happy to announce that I was able to talk my wife, Kyri Cox into sitting in on this episode, and she and I reminisced over our backcountry hunts we did together in our first couple years of marriage. Jake Morris, who has been on the show before, brought up what he’ll be doing for hunting season, as well as what the whole crew will be doing with each other, so you guys can expect some awesome hunts to come from us this year. I hope you enjoy this episode and get to know the Stalker team a little better and let us know what you would like to see from us in the future, with a little more manpower than we’ve had before, we are going to be able to get some awesome stuff put out there for you guys. Thanks for listening!

Welcome to the show, on today’s episode I am lucky enough to have sat down with Wayne Endicott, owner of the Bow Rack, and we had an awesome discussion about hunting in Oregon. We pretty much cover all of the over the counter hunts in Oregon, including some of Wayne’s history growing up, and how he became a bow shop owner. Wayne lives in Western Oregon, which means he is lucky enough to be able to hunt Blacktail deer every year, so we spend quite a bit of time discussing tactics for hunting these elusive deer. We also talk about some of the histories in Wallowa County, and how the wolves in Oregon have affected Wallowa. To wrap up the episode Wayne shares stories about Roy Roth, which I hope you all enjoy. I hope that you all enjoy this episode, and thank you for listening.
