Show notes
Welcome to the show! Today I am joined by a good buddy Craig Van Arsdale. Craigs been on the podcast before and in fact we did an audio experience together last fall in Colorado. Craig and I have had some deep conversations over beers or just out hunting but I never knew how to bring them into the podcast for you guys. Today we managed to cover some interesting topics, to include how to hunt 100 days a year, how we would choose carriers if we were starting over, investments and much more. Craig is very much into the Bitcoin world and we go pretty deep down the rabbit-whole of bitcoin and what it could mean for the next 20 years. There is also no shortage of hunting talk as Craig just got out of the woods after killing a stud Montana buck. I also just got an inReach message saying he shot a bull so as you hear this we will be packing out meat and I will be looking to fill the freezer with my own elk tag. Tune into the Patreon feed next week for a Wapiti Wednesday elk season update from the field.

This podcast is brought to your by On X Maps. The number one mapping system for hunters. I use On X maps both in the field and at my laptop constantly. Whether I am scouting new locations or in the field On X is my go-to. I just got off a hunt that was filled with audibles, we changed plans constantly as we tried to find elk. I was with my good buddy and e-scouting legend Mark Livesay and over that week of hunting we continuously went back to the maps looking at options trying to dig up more elk. You have probably heard mention his e-scouting course Treeline Academy which I highly highly recommend. Marks system put us on literally hundreds of elk. Needless to say, we were in elk all week and were able to even find new elk because of On X and the tools available to hunters right on our phone. In fact I played with the new 3D feature right on my phone and that is way cool. ON X now has a 3D feature in the app that allows you to see your way points in a google earth type 3D view. Really cool feature.
When it comes to e-scouting Marks course Treeline Academy is the gold standard and for me goHUNT, On X maps,  and Google earth are my go to tools. If you want to up your hunting game these tools are a must have in my opinion. goHUNT is a big supporter of the podcast and over the next 6 months I will be on goHUNT religiously, planning and scheming all of my next years hunts. Don’t waste money and more importantly years of struggling to figure out big game hunting. Go sign up for marks course. Then get yourself an On X membership and a goHUNT membership and take years off the learning curve. Use the TRO code for all three to save yourself some money.
