Almost a year ago I ended up sitting with Seth and Scott Perkins at an event we were both at. Honestly I had know idea who they were but we hit it off like we were old friends from years back. Seth, Scott and I stayed in touch and actually talked often. On a whim I told them they should think about coming is Montana for an elk hunt some day. Ironically at our first meeting I spent most of the time convincing them that going on an elk was not a huge deal and anyone can do it. Boy would I grow to eat my words on that one. As fate would have it they drew tags their first year and the adventure planning would begin. Seth and Scott brought their nephew and camera man Spencer out to document the whole adventure and as of today the first half of that adventure is out on their YouTube Channel. with the second half coming out this weekend.
Hunting has been such a huge piece of my life and I can honestly say I have had some amazing experiences and met some truly amazing people along the way. I would consider these guys as close of friends as anyone and am thankful for such a great experience with them.
If you have never heard of the Bearded Butchers you have to check out their YouTube Channel. Never in a million years would I think I could get sucked into a video of someone cutting up a beef but something about the whole thing sucks you in and you wont regret it. Awesome dudes and truly consider them good friends.
Today’s podcast sponsored by Maven Optics. I love my Maven’s they are awesome glass. In fact I have been running maven for going on 5 years now. If you want to check out more about what optics I run check out a recent article I did for the Maven Journal where I talk about my collection of optics and which ones I like for different situations.
Holidays are just around the corner and a set of Maven bino’s or rifle scope should definitely be on your list. In fact go give the custom optics builder on their website a spin. There you can customize your optics with hundreds of options and I believe through the end of the month you can get free custom upgrades. Again go check out the article and feel free to shoot many any questions you have about certain optics. I am more than happy to help you choose the right option.
Today’s podcast brought to you by the great folks over at On X Maps. The #1 GPS hunting app with onX Hunt and onX Offroad. They have you covered for all the activities. On X recently launched 3D maps which is an amazing feature that basically brings google earth into the app allowing you to not only see the terrain in 3D but also be able to easily see all of your way points as well. I love this new feature and saves quite a bit of time when e-scouting or when in the field.
