Welcome to the Backcountry Rookies Big Game Hunting podcast, we are new to the backcountry hunting community, or as some would say "Rookies". Our goal is to educate ourselves as well as other new western hunters and gain the experience we all need to be successful backcountry hunters. As we begin our exciting new journey we want to invite other Rookies, like us, as well as seasoned western hunters to learn and help all skill levels become prepared for their backcountry hunting adventures. In this podcast we cover backcountry hunting gear and equipment, elk hunting, mule deer hunting, antelope hunting , and other western big game species. Brought to you by the Sportsmen's Nation.
