This week I am joined by Laura Zerra who atop being a complete badass, is more at home lost in the mountains than most any of the guest that have been on my show. Since childhood Laura has longed to be in the woods exploring the mountains and far before it was cool or popular, living off the land.

I really enjoyed this conversation with Laura and find anyone who can travel to the beat of their own drum fascinating and inspiring. Laura shares some stories of her wilderness adventures and insights into living your best life.

Laura is also obsessed with shed hunting and we talk about her upcoming plans to go off the grid for the entire month of April in search antlers and how antlers have almost become just an excuse to be in the wilderness. Enjoy!

This podcast brought to you by Maven Optics. I keep getting ton of questions from folk asking how much I like my Maven Binoculars, and let just tell you I love my Mavens. I am not just saying this on the podcast I freaking love these optics and the company. The Holidays are just around the corner and a pair of Maven’s is a perfect gift. Maven Optics is direct to consumer optics company based out of Wyoming. Maven has taken out the middle man and are shipping you an amazing product right to your door. A lot of people are temped to compare Maven to similar price point optics but let me just say stop doing that. Maven will blow the price point away. They don’t have the middle man mark up and therefore have a superior product at a great price. The other incredible thing about maven is that you can custom design your optics with thousands of different options. Just log onto and start playing with custom builder to design a pair of bino’s that are uniquely yours. Use the Code TRO-GIFT to claim your free bonus gift at purchase.
This podcast is brought to you by ON X Maps. ON X maps is not only the number one mapping system for public private boundaries, but for me is my go to Navigation, E-Scouting, and all purpose GPS. With the ability to save maps on my phone before I head out On X has become  my go-to system for every hunt. On X is constantly pushing the limits of what a mobile app can do and has launched a ton of great features that make me a  more successful hunter. A couple of my favorite features right now are the ability to share waypoints and routes. Whether with my wife before I head out or with hunting buddies sharing waypoints for various pins, I use this constantly. With the ability to now uses tons of different icons and colors my mapping system is more organized and easier to read than ever. These are just a fraction of the new features and why I choose On X maps over anyone else. Be sure to use the code TRO when you sign up or renew and you will save 20% off.
