On this weeks episode we had the opportunity to speak with Brian Dagen of the Michigan Deer Tracking Network. Brian and his dog Mack comprise Whitehall Wounded Game Recovery, service that uses tracking dogs to help hunters recover wounded whitetails. We discuss the ins an outs of what using dogs to recover a poorly hit animal, how these dogs are trained, things hunters can expect when contacting a tracker and also things hunters can do to maximize their chance at recovering an animal in the event they do need to call in a tracking dog.
This week we spoke with Curtis Zabel from Behind the Bow. Curtis is a passionate public land bowhunter from Wisconsin who is also passionate about videography and film making, and telling a story in particular. A great example of this can be seen in his film from last year Life of a Public land Bowhunter. We talk about the passion for bowhunting in a state like Wisconsin with a rich tradition of firearm hunting, the tactics he uses to harvest mature buck on public ground. We also talk about his recent antelope hunt in South Dakota, which can be seen in this years file Lope Country, with friend, business partner and former Marine Skylar Sommers. The other topics covered include accessing public lands, the trials and tribulations of filming, and their annual film contest. You can check out their films of this on the Behind the Bow Youtube channel Linked below. Also check out their webpage/blog for more information https://www.btbhunting.com
In this weeks episode we breakdown the ins and out of the gear that we brought with us on the trip out west. We go over what worked well, what didn’t and things we would change about our gear going forwards. Overall for a first go at it I think we were happy with our gear selections with slight changes here and there.
This week we talk to Shawn Walters from Silent Approach, about his line of lightweight, strap on tree steps. The Silent Approach climbing system consists of 12 steps weighing in at around 6 pounds with their carrying case and will allow you to climb to heights at or around 20 feet. They are a very cool product, that is a new take at an old design. We talk about the different climbing methods and their pros and cons as well as the benefits, real or perceived of having a super light setup. Overall it was a fun podcast to record, Shawn is a great guy so if you are in the market for some new climbing equipment or looking to go super light, these may just be what you are after.
This week we talk to Mark Huelsing with Exo Mountain gear. We talk with Mark about his experiences as a Midwesterner heading out to the mountains of the west for the first time. We talk a lot about nutrition on the mountain and what it takes to fuel you body and somewhat your spirit as the days wear on in the backcountry. Mark also takes us through his first pack out and the things that he would have done differently. This was a great and informational episode to record and if you would like more information on any of the things that we discussed in the episode check out Exomountaingear.com/nutrition or V2Pnutrition.com

This week we talk to Greg Litzinger, a very accomplished archer on many fronts. Greg hunts primarily state land in the heavily pressured state of New Jersey and has had tremendous success. Greg also at one time struggled with target panic and, with the help of his coach, was able to not only over come it, but that process lead him to start shooting 3D where he has excelled and won many medals including the 2017 New Jersey State Champion. In this episode we discuss his hunting style, the use of mock scrapes, bow tips for preseason preparation, moon phases as well as his 2017 trip to Montana chasing elk.

Bowhunter Chronicles Podcast Episode 27: Precision Peeps with Bas Wolf
The week we talk to Bas Wolf creator of the Precision Peep sight, a new take on an old design. The Precision Peep creates two points of reference allowing for more precise shooting, quicker target acquisition and less steps to a quality shot process. Bas himself says that its not for everyone and if your shots are hitting where you intend every time, thats great, but if not you may want to check now of these out. Adam has been shooting one for about 3 months and has seen his groups drastically improve and has seen some changes that were needed. We just wanted to let our listeners know about his product as it was not something that we had seen prior to receiving one in the Bowhunter Box Club Box last year.
