we introduce another new “show within the show” concept, The Mindful Hunter, a solocast featuring Jay Nichol. Jay is a passionate backcountry adventure hunter that isn’t afraid to voice his opinions on gear, current events in the hunting space, fitness, hunt planning, and much more.
On this episode, recorded in the truck on the way home from a very challenging mid-November mule deer hunt, Wardo sits in for Nolan and Adam as host and chats with Ben about what worked and what didn’t on their recent adventure.
Adam visits with Jay Nichol, a passionate, BC-based solo backcountry bowhunter. Jay and Adam cover a variety of topics, including Jay’s introduction to hunting, why he turned to the bow, his experiences and lessons learned hunting across Western Canada and the US and what adventure hunting means to him.
We’re introducing a new “show within the show” concept that you’ll see pop-up in the BTK feed every week, Quick & Dirty with Wardo. These episodes will be short form podcasts in addition to our regular interviews, focused on one or two topics at a time and covering tips, tricks and advice on injury and pain management, fitness, nutrition, gear and whatever else strikes our fancy.
Nolan sits down with good friends Jesse Bone & Tash Baycroft of Filter Studios, and Peter Gutsche to discuss a recent fly-in mountain goat hunt the boys were on. The Filter crew has dipped their feet in the waters of mountain hunting in the past, but this was their first full dive.
The wind roared across the alpine lake as my dad carefully loaded his small raft with gear. Nearby, I did the same with my sixteen-foot canoe. Soon we would be paddling down a chain of high-country lakes, heading for a stream that served as the lake’s outlet.
