DIY Alaska Brown Bear - A River Odyssey

At the time, any chance of ever hunting for a grizzly bear was just a pipe dream; but even so, these stories were indelibly etched in our minds. One day, I thought, ‘I want to go on a hunt like this!’

Now or Never

“You’ve got 48 minutes.”  The update snapped me back to reality. My next step would seal my fate. After being so cautious on the open face, I made the trees and started to relax. With one slip and the sound of gravel underfoot, the whole herd stood at attention.

Traditional Triumph

Hunting has taught me to seek and embrace challenges. Whether that challenge is a more primitive weapon, a tougher style of hunting, or taking the risk to invest in an out-of-state hunt, I have learned that the effort put forth only makes the whole experience more rewarding, and I can’t wait for the next adventure.

Big Curl

I walked over 165 miles, rode horses 50 miles, and lost almost 20 lb in 24 days. The experience was a test of will and perseverance and was my hardest hunt to date. It proved to me that you have to fail in order to make corrections for success.

How Social Media Will End Hunting

Social media has changed the way we operate, and hunters are not immune to that change. It allows us to communicate, share, and self-publish… and it may be the single thing that leads to the demise of hunting.

The Western Hunter Podcast

Presented By:

Browning proudly presents The Western Hunter Podcast
Ep 24: Remi Warren
Remi Warren doesn’t need an introduction to this audience. Like most of you, I think Remi is one of the most interesting people in the world as well as one of the top ambassadors for the hunting community. While attending the Pope and Young convention we found some time to sit down and talk again. I didn’t have any specific agenda; with Remi I didn’t need one. We just talked about life, parenthood, and anything else that was on our minds.

Ep 21: Rafe Nielsen

Rafe Nielsen from Browning is back again! In this episode, we talk about life without a SHOT Show in 2021. We dig into new rifle products and how those products are developed and brought to market. We also spent time talking about gun safes, why we should all invest in one, and the process of purchasing and installing a safe in your home.

One of the coolest new products from Browning this year is the new Recoil Hawg muzzle brake.  Check out this short video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DF-j9C5diRQ

Rafe Nielsen is not only a hunting partner he is the marketing director at Browning.  We spent time talking about John Browning and many of his contributions to modern firearms and to our military.  We also dive into modern production practices and why we now have the best hunting product that we unimaginable just a decade ago.

Ep 23: Dean Capuano from Swarovski

In this episode, I sit down with Dean Capuano from Swarovski.  Dean and I met via phone on his very first day on the job at Swarovski over 20 years ago. Since then, we have hunted together in Austria, Africa, Mexico and many different US states.  We go into detail about what it takes to make the best optics in the world and what the future may hold.

Ep 20: Roy Grace

Roy Grace has been bowhunting his entire life and has hunted every species the west has to offer. Roy is also the records chairman for the Pope and Young Club. In this episode, we talk about why the record book is important and why we should all consider entering a trophy if it qualifies for the “Book”.  He got me so fired up for this summer’s convention in Reno, that I have already made plans to attend!

Electric assisted (e-bikes) are exploding in popularity worldwide. When it comes to western hunting e-bikes, Bakcou is leading the way. In this episode, I sit down with Bakcou founders Bryan and Dave to discuss their company, their bikes, the current status, and the future of hunting with e-bikes. These guys are hunters first and bike enthusiasts second. With years of experience, their perspective and expertise are unparalleled. Besides that, they are a lot of fun to hang out with.

Ep 17: Kelly Glenn

Not long after the turn of the 19th century the Glenn family settled in Southeast Arizona. Warner and Wendy Glenn raised a son Cody and daughter Kelly in the same country.    Cody and I became friends the first day of junior high. His friendship and the Glenn family changed the course of my life. I shot my first deer with Cody and Wendy. I built fences and corrals, branded calves and learned how to work 16 hours a day on the ranch they have owned for more than 100 years.  Wendy has passed away but Warner, Kelly and her daughter Mackenzie still saddle up almost daily.

In this episode I sit down with  Kelly to discuss the realities of modern ranching, their family history and “the wall” along the Mexican border.  

A family friend Ed Ashurst, authored a book titled “The Life and Times of Warner Glenn” telling the story of the Glenn family along with some amazing adventure stories that had me riveted.  You can purchase this book and “Eyes of Fire, Encounters with a Boderland Jaguar” right here. https://colablancaproductions.com/collections/books
