Women in the Outdoors – Krissy Hay Knox

Bowhunter Chronicles Podcast Episode 81: Women in the Outdoors – Krissy Hay Knox

This week Adam and John talk with Bowtech Ambassador Krissy Hay Knox about women hunters and women in the outdoor industry. We met Krissy by chance at the 2019 ATA show and talked for 10 minutes and that’s all it took to see that we needed to have her as a guest on the podcast.  We talk about her hunting upbringing from an early age and how she got into bowhunting as well as the outdoor industry.  Krissy epitomizes a true outdoorsman with both her outlook on hunting as well as her motivations.  We talk about the differences in expectations for male and female hunters, the new bow tech lineups and Krissy also shares the story of her giant 2019 Oregon mule deer.

Making Sense of Scents – Josh Smith – Wild Carrot Scents

Bowhunter Chronicles Podcast Episode 79: Making Sense of Scents – Josh Smith – Wild Carrot Scents

This week Adam talks with Josh Smith from Wild Carrot Scents about the uses and differences between different deer scents.  Josh and his family had been harvesting the tarsal glands, bladders and urine from deer they had harvested each year and began packaging it up for friends and future use. Their products became so popular amongst the recipients that they were urged into creating a process to bring it to the public, so that’s exactly what they did.  Their products can be found in most local bow shops, on their website and on amazon. The link in the picture is an affiliate link so if you do buy some to try out we get a few pennies and we do appreciate it.

Door Knocking, Leases and Booners

Bowhunter Chronicles Podcast Episode 75: Door Knocking, Leases and Booners

This weeks episode Adam and Frank sit down with their god friend Mike Stewart to talk about hunting leases.  Now we normally shy away from managed out of state hunts on leases and outfitters but in this case we decided to make an exception. Mike is a Michigan native who after many years of hunting Michigan and seeing the types of bucks out of state hunts could bring decided to venture off in search of larger animals.  After a few years that brought Mike to Missouri on some land he got by posting a craiglist ad.  It wasn’t the best piece of property he had ever stepped for on but it was a foot hold in the area he wanted to hunt, and it was on that property that he was able to shoot his largest buck to date a 200” monster that he had a few late night trail cam pictures of.  This podcast is meant to inspire guys that want to go out of state or pursue leases but don’t really know where to start
