Four-Year Plan

Am I really seeing this? It just seems too good to be true. A group of good bulls on public ground in the middle of rifle elk season, leisurely feeding on an open plateau. I started to formulate a game plan, but it wouldn’t be for that day or even that season.

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

Ep 14: Rafe Nielsen

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!

Ep 19: Kendall Card

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. Check out their bikes as you listen to this episode
