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 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

Ep 16: Warner 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 on 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 first of two episodes, I sit down with Warner first, to discuss the realities of modern ranching, their family history, and “the wall” along the Mexican border.  Warner had a farrier coming the next morning so he had to head out and catch his horses and mules so they could be shod.

Warner Glenn is a special man, his story is better than Hollywood could ever dream up. Not only is he a rancher, but he has been hunting mountain lions since he was 5 years old, documented the first jaguar in the US, and worked on multiple films.  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
