"The trail is just the roads to eroded to get my horse trailer to the trail head answers to two and a half mile john of just leading him back on the four wheeler and it was taken half the weight off the horse's put on the wheelers. And we're driving down. While i i screwed up and got the lead wrapped around the rear tire. It just there's too much slack between the horse. And i and he was trying to pass me just so he could see where he was walking. I felt it right away so it was only one rap. I stopped mills. Real steep section. And so i'm holding. The break of the four wheeler trying to unwrap this lead rope and i got the first rap on down. And there's like half more rap but kind of stuck between the break and the rim of the tire. It's kind of wedged in there. And i finally went. You know if. I just clip this horse real quick. I can pop that out and reached down there and he. He's a great horse. I'm i've had him for a long time and really liked that horse. But i hit him in the face with that quarter. That was on my backpack. When i went to stand back up after. I got the lead rope undone. Well he noticed he was free and so he just went to turn start walking and going on his own while that area behind him. I don't know if it was him out of his area but all the sudden they just they went from zero to sixty with meat loaded on them and they ran down the hill till they hit a winner cattle fence and instead of just standing there where. There's a gate that you can let them through and go down to the horse trailer now. They took a hard left and ran to river number. One they got over there and there are some rocks only four or five hundred yards. But we're driving behind him on four wheelers trying to catch them because here's meet just bouncing in the air behind him. It's funny now. It wasn't funny. Then you know this is after all day of hike it and packing in quarter and an running back and forth and out to go get the horses. Well i get to the gate. I get in front of them. They've turned around. They're coming back a kind of put both hands up. Hey i'm gonna stop these guys and they dang near run me over. They ran about two and a half miles long fence. All i could see was dust. Jeez this is five thirty six o'clock at night and it's two hundred percent my fault. I'm pretty mad. That i just didn't ask the other guy that was with me to just parkas wheeler come. Hold his horse real quick. While i get this on tangled right or my thought was i could have taken the lead rope and just threaded at through his alter while i stood there and did the other end right. So there's lots of could've should've would've after we'll surprisingly ebbing we had that one ripped pandered right. That quarter fell off pretty pretty quick. And usually when you're if you're off balance more than five pounds loaded on a pack saddle. You can rule that whole saddle underneath or shrine. It just you get that extra weight pulling down and pulling down the other side keeps you right up higher and higher and higher and all the sudden it gets to a cantilever point. It just rolls underneath them. Well he's got real high withers. I had pretty tight. He had a pack saddle on the first horse. How to ride accent along on. But the the pack saddle horse had the broken companion and that quarter flew off pretty quick and i'd actually tied him amman. So the other one's still tied on. And i want you to go out there and i'm i'm gonna follow where there because i'm assuming that i'm going to find another quarter somewhere laying in the dirt and maybe even the other horses can lose. His i get the is is at least two miles. I get out there and find them stand and understand and pretty much at a dead end. They're looking at me. Like what do we do now. And i'm like well. He didn't have to do this so i gathered them up and started walking back. Well that quarter was still on the one side and so we're just slowly walking back and we walked. Maybe halfway back enrolled that saddle so i had to reset it and then figure out how to top load one l. quarter and it didn't take too long but yeah i was not very happy with those horses. Needless to say we should have been out and done and soaking her feet in the creek at five in afternoon about nine when we got out the entertainment of have horses. Everybody but you know at the same time it would have been a law harder to pack out. Had you not had the horses. So i'd still be there packing. Meet patrick. that's it's tough stuff so wanna talk real quick about another sponsor. pk louvers. This is prime time fishing season for me Been on quite a bit. And i'll tell you peak as a great thing to have in your arsenal if you guys are going to be out. There targeting trout walleye. Anything like that. This fall get some. Pk spoons on board. They've got some great crank bait options. Some gigs you can find all of those great options at pk. lure dot com and This is like. I said october november prime time. Get out there. Get some fishing. Done especially after your. Hopefully you've bagged your elk or whatever else you going for again. P. keilor dot com So david you know just to kind of get towards the end here. I mean you guys had some success and now you've got some meat and so tell me a little bit about that and you know what your plans are with it and how you're going to process it so for the first year ever i just looked timeframes. Look at work and i just taken know quite a few days off. I'm very fortunate and very blessed. I i kinda dumped a whole bunch of work on on the employees at work and said figure it out sinker swim and They did some sinking but they did some swimming. So i normally we butchered all at home right. We've got Grinders and meet tubs and big cutting boards. And i've got a my favorite knife is a Victorinox it's filet knife in. It's almost been that thing. One hundred eighty degrees. It's wicked sharp. Holds an ed's decent. But i mean. I can with a knife and a boning knife. I can pretty well. He and i kind of. I don't like a lot of silver on my meat. Fillet out my stakes. Pretty good and having a good fillet knife you can and you wanna do that. Meet when it's cool right in in on the kitchen table if you got the house at eighty degrees you don't get a lot of working time and the meat starts to get the juices start coming out. A little bit gets slimy. And if you can cut that meet when it's cooler in it's while you're professional guys they hang carcass. Get it nice and cold and cut it up. It's cold right. Those muscles constrict tighten up and it just a much cleaner faster quicker job so i for the last twenty years. I've butchered all my own from burger jerky six to stakes to roast too. And what we do is we rapid in one layer of saran wrap and then vacuum seal. It try not to drop those vacuum seal bags. You poke a hole in them. You know they don't have their effectiveness anymore. But i'll tell you patrick by having that double layer just vacuum sealing. You're gonna get freezer burn meet if you notice like butcher. They usually wrap it in a something. And then they ratchet in butcher paper and it still great this is just that next level and kind of we have a two two and a half year rotation on our meat. So i i kind of put the crops in the ground in the spring and we in the fall right well. I'm putting crops in the ground in the fall and we're harvesting in more false. Oh yeah we haven't stand up freezer and then to chest freezers. So wife will go through and organiz at stand up freezer. You know what we're going to be eaten an assist. You wanna eat that older stock first anyways. But i don't wanna be in. April may running out. Elk meat right so i like to have have quite a bit of deer. Nelken the freezer. Because let's that's what we eat. I mean if we're having spaghetti for having burgers if we're having stakes you're gonna be eaten venison at my house and so having that extra protection and there's been once or twice i remember i shot a bison in two thousand sixteen and in about two thousand eighteen or nineteen. We found a package and any else. Sixteen the bison so it's three year old package of ice and we opened it up. It was still vacuum-sealed. Still tight saran wrapped. It was as good as three months old or six month old. So but this year i I dropped that bull off at the picture and said cut rapid please so and i went back to work that day. Then i've been working since. I still haven't changed the voice message. I have checked. Few of the voice mails and have called quite a few people back but on one of the things that you told me that she did that. I think is pretty cool. Is when you're rapping those steaks and whatnot. You get that high mountain seasonings out get it seasoned up. Then wrap it up and freeze it that way when you thought out it's ready to go and it is seasoned. I usually take about a third of the back. Strap and i used to cut it into inch stakes. We'll now anymore. I like to do you know the jalapeno cream cheese meat log rolex told you about so i like my batch tracks in about a a four person serving size. I ended up being about five inches long. And so you just take that sprinkle the seasoning on it then. Saran wrap it than vacuum sealed. And then i'm i ride on what it is but yeah as thawing Throat in the frigid day. Before you're gonna eat it just let it thaw. It's already starting to quasi dry marinate But then you can take it out. Toss it right on the barbecue and it's that time of year for me too. I mean we've got a. I have a pig that butchered now and waiting to get it back and i can tell you i asked for the hamster. Come back fresh and what i do is like your with the buckboard. Bacon seasoning from high mountain. Also do my own bacon that way and it's really good stuff and this time consuming but it's nice but man it's not hard. I mean you take probably half hour. Prep put it in the fridge for twelve days. Get it out you know. Wash wash it off smoke it. It's ready to go and mean you have some of the best stuff that you could ever put in your mouth and you know it's high mound seasoning season. You know any time you get to fall. you know. it's time to go down time out and get what you need. Actually i just looked in the cupboard because we we we make sure everybody. That leaves the podcast. Here has a little sampler. And i've we've got usually some stuff on hand but i will be going down and visiting and restocking our supply as well while seth when he was here. If you guys haven't listened those episodes go back and listen to him. But when seth was here he tried the western style. Trout seasoning on some of those fresh trout that we caught and changed his opinion on trout. He thought it was really good. And and it was so If you're out there and you're listening and you wanna try it and see how it goes for you go to h. Mt in jerky dot com again. Hi mt jerky dot com. You can get everything from jerky. Kids to fish seasoning. Brines to like we were talking about. You can make your own bacon your own ham or whatever it might be but baroni sausage brought. I mean the list goes on and on and on they got it all man so we've talked about it The the whole muscle jerky is what i like. And the differences you take you take the same cure to make the whole meat and he sliced meat real thin you brian it for i think twenty four hours knife again. One trick. i'll give. Everybody is put that meat. In the freezer it doesn't want to be completely frozen to semi starting to crystallize and then you can take that fillet knife and you can slice it super thin. Take a big tub. You know you mix it to the proportions you sprinkle it on. It's in the fridge for twenty four in the smoker for two to four. And you can get there jerky board and make it really easy to cut because it's all set up for you. Oh yeah The kids and the wife like the ground. Yep jerky shooter stick. And it's it's way too easy. It's got a rectangle nozzle on the end of the jerky gun. You grind the meat. You mix the seasoning in it. He put it in the fridge for overnight. And then you shoot it out on wax paper you can put it in the smoker or we put it right in the oven. And i'll tell you what those kids go through gallons of that stuff. I don't i like the home. I want to chew on it right. I wanted to know what a non they like to gobble that up. I did seven or eight geese a few years ago that way and ban that makes good jerky too. I mean if you have some goose breslin around or something like that you can also shoot that. So so another thing. I've found with What kind of just my own. Two cents of wild game cutting is hamburger. A lot of people are always questioning. How much Fat to add to their burger right and we add zero we grind what. What the cuts. They're going to be grind for burger and we sometimes. She does a lot of dishes that we don't put any fat in a actually. Were to the point. When i make hamburgers. We'll take some ritz crackers in an egg. Take a one pound package and now we got two boys here at home. That are eaten burger all. So we're now doing two pound packages a burger. But you take a handful ritz crackers in two eggs with two pounds burger and mash it up and that will give it that Kind of gluten field stick together Obviously not carb free. But what i've found for me is by putting that fat in the burger. That fat actually gives that burger in the freezer shelf. life of. Let's say six months by no fat in the burger. You're now extending that shelf life to twenty four months. Yeah so you want to see. If and here's the other thing you can do in. This is something i'll do is if you take some fat and you do some packages you're gonna eat soon. That's no big deal right like i'll take some pork fellow. I love pork fat. I mean the best thing is sick some bacon and grind that up in your denying yes. It's it's delicious fairly quick bad but that's why we just. I mean i'd rather taken if we're gonna do smoke bacon in for weekend. I'd rather thaw that package out. Take the grinder and take that small portion of bacon ends and just re grind it right. Yeah it's a little more labor. Yeah you're making the grinder again. But i don't like taking burger out of the freezer. That doesn't take now. I'm with you. And i think that's a good place for us to stop. I mean you had you had an adventurous year. You got some elkin. The freezer you know while he will have it here shortly. And you know it's it's it's good just to talk about a kind of go through and evaluate. what did i learn this year. You know what's changed and so it was kind of cool to hear you know some different things especially at the full moon how things had to work out. But i mean you guys changed up the game and we're successful. So that's what matters. Yeah definitely i'd say. Be careful out there. We had one endeavour where we drew blood on a person. And i'm not gonna throw the guy under the bus said. Nah not drag it out if you if you follow it along on instagram. You've already caught some of the story but basically in we have frail bodies and we're running around with sharp implements. Just be careful. It can happen in fishing to yes. I will tell the story on myself. I did stick myself. Pretty good in the finger with flame knife fits seminole reservoir last year. It sucks so just be careful. That's the biggest thing where we're at is you. Don't wanna be aware. We're not easily accessible for emergency services so ano- and it was no fault of anybody's but yeah we definitely. We had a little human blood on the ground. Not not a ton but enough to open my eyes that you really gotta have a good first aid. Kit should know i ache. But you know all the personal locator beacons in the world are not going to save you if now if it's a fatal injury where all mortals so. We have to keep that in mind.

"Amend. We're not talking. We're on a nice little horse trail like when you and i go fish into a lake. Where years her nice gravel path you know maybe a log here and there no. It's every step is off balance off kilter going over log stepping in a mouse hole or trip an honest dick. There's you're always on in vegetation always on brush and so having your hands free especially as we get into more that technical climbing hiking stuff was kinda cool to snow to to follow the oaken. Really learn how they're using the country they use ten percent of it now. They're in one hundred percent of it but they really utilize ten percent of that square mile or ten square miles there in there in one square mile of ten square miles. But you've got to go through all ten square miles to find that little nook and cranny that they're kind of -habitating so one suggestion. I've said this before is l. kind of need three things to live. They need food water and shelter fi. Find two of those. You've got him same thing as fire. Fire needs fuel oxygen. Ignition you take to those away. You can't have fire but if you have to. You can have fire for a limited time so there's a correlation there of if you find too don't worry about the third one year between either where they're going to bend where they're going to eat or they're going to eat and where they're going to drink so it was everybody in camp was rockin abo- spider and i mean. I don't think they were rocking them just to please my ego. It's because it really is a tool that is that useful. Oh it's better than carrying around in your hands so if you guys are out there and you are interested after hearing all that go to bow spider dot com. You can pick up your very own boast butter. You can get some extra receivers seek a few extra spots and yeah see. How much of a game. Changer it is for you. So i packed my primary boma backup bow to receivers on both headrests and my backup. Bo is a ten year old bow. But it's one that i've kept around shoot well and you know if i was to have any sort of equipment malfunction instead of. Hey i gotta go town go bo shop or go to oppress or whatever. Now it's grab the other bo. That's tuned up ready to go. You know it's it'd be like going fishing with one fish and polar too right. Yep yeah. I always take it back up just in case but you're talking about horse rex Want to transition to that a little bit and horse adventure stuff so tell me. Tell me what happened with horses this year. Well three years ago. I got a bunch of these horses and Got the round pan started doing quite a bit of work in the spring. I was still in college. Both spider hadn't started up in full yet. And so i spent quite a bit of time spring in the round pen with all of them. Just just going through basics putting the pack saddle on putting some pandered on them and getting them tuned up and ready right in summertime. We did a few pack trips with some young men and did some other stuff and got a mountain used them and we didn't have any issues like really any so to speak the last two years. I've had zero time in the spring and summer to really spend with horses right. So it's made it was a scramble. Just to get shoes on this year and i drag my feet on getting a farrier and miscommunicated with another ferrier and it just didn't get the pig to the zoo so to speak and i ended up getting to put shoes on which was a good skill learn. I'm glad i did. It bought all the equipment. And it's if i ever throw a shoe. I feel very confident that i mean those shoes that i put on the horses are still on there and none are lame. So now i wouldn't recommend everybody go out and do it took a lot of i've been Annoying my farrier. For almost three years of just when he comes i'm grabbing my nipples in my file and in his way more than anything. But like i said it's to the point. Now can i do it. Yes do i want to know but back to horses. Didn't get put in the round pen. This spring i think i grabbed the horses two times and went riding through my boy on one and through on the other one we went in the arena and writing for an hour. Each time right. That's not a lot of saddle time for a year. So we we ended up getting two bowls rifle season and horses are still there. So i'm gal run and grab him ran and grabbed him road all the way in the trail and it was. It was awful nice to been hiking and now this trail for weeks now days at least to ride in a minute took me what was about an hour hour and a half i. It took me fifteen minutes right now. The i sweated the horse up a little bit. But it's pretty nice to not use your two feet and use somebody else's four feet to especially you know you're climbing a couple hundred feet here and there and when we're when you're climbing a couple hundred feet that doesn't sound bad right well when you're at eighty eight to ninety one. It's there's not much air up there. Patrick how we got into these two bowls and it's twelve bags of meat in. Oh eight quarters and then the back straps and then all the neck in brisket meat and so we got all these packs and yes. A seasoned horse can definitely pack a whole elk by itself for very short distances. I wouldn't be going over technical trails and doing twelve miles in doing that day. In and out but we're talking three or four miles. Yeah horse could do especially on cattle trails. That are pretty untechnical for horse technical for you and me but you know they're they're more athletic than you know we we loaded up the you know and doubled up quarters on each one put horns on one and then we put some some bags of meat on us and started leading amount because we just had the two well when we first i got one. The tafera been Well i think taff crazy too but it just it. It needs more time. But they're also they're just get a good quarterhorse and they're they're pretty pretty straightforward sound. Not super spooky. You know you you. Can you can mess up around him. And they just kind of tolerate it the arabs you crinkle a can or a bag wrong in their their bucket. All the way down the hill discussed they feel like it. So we had a little bit of a rodeo. Just trying to get meet loaded up and tore one of the the pack bags right there so that made it even more difficult. Because now we've got you know. Got four pan yards while ones torn. And so we're trying to repair it and get kinda double the load i would normally put and just for everybody listening what i would normally do is put the fronts in two pan yards and then i take each one of those bags. I take one bag and put the neck meet and all the extra burger in any other meat brisket meat in there an app pretty much offsets the backdrops and tenderloins. And so i put those two bags in the two fronts on one and then i'll put the hindquarters and the horns on the other and go out with no meat on my back and that's that's ideal in this situation. We doubled up on it. Oh we put a set of hines and a set of fronts on one and we put a set of hines and to meet bags on the other and horns will that left one set of horns and two front shoulders that win in our backpacks so were walking out. You know we're loaded with a front. It's not it's not crushing. But it's you know you're talking fifty five sixty pounds for a front quarter. Plus whatever is in your back back to start with so you know in my backpack ranges in the twenty five thirty five pounds. So you're you're going out with eighty five pounds on your back seventy if you're lucky but eighty pounds and it can be. It can be daunting you know you need you need tracking.

"On kind of two thoughts is if i do get mauled a mental. Let that bear. Have the backpack right if you can. I'm gonna try and roll over in the fetal position on the ground and hopefully one of the guys with me will come deal with the bear in i've seen is. They put their pistol on their hip of their backpack. That's fine but keep your backpack on it So on this bull. I'm getting a little nervous of you. Know haven't seen or heard these guys for about ten fifteen minutes. I know approximately. They've climbed up just to the cusp of the edge of the bench. Where that bowl was had gone the day before and i creeped up there and i moved. Probably that hundred and fifty yards silently over about fifteen minutes. And i got right behind him and changed the type in volume of bugle that we used and we bugle about like say or a hundred yards away from his bed and he came unglued. I quickly backpedaled about fifty yards and sidestepping up the drainage just a little bit so that i could shoot my call kind of downhill and around the hill from him instead of just straight at him so basically i'm calling one eighty from the bowl even though i'm that close and that bulk came on a string and he came right now and he came in about seventeen yards from the from the shooter and the day before when he is coming. The shooter was moving a little bit and the wind switch so he caught movement and he caught smell at about fifty yards this time. The shooter stationary and that bull thinks that. There's somebody coming to interrupt his naptime in his bedroom. And so that tactic of we were. I was two hundred and fifty. Three hundred yards away sounded like a bunch of elk. They'll call went quiet all sudden. There's an alka hundred yards away. Bow fifteen minute time span difference and like i said. We went from a high-pitched three note little locate bugle sounding like a livable with a few cows. Too deep guttural. Big bowl chuckling bugle and just. Basically said hey. I'm here to kick your butt. And he said oh yeah. I don't think so so it was made. It was intense going from when the bugles echoing at two or three hundred yards. It's like what we hear on tv. You know it's that wispy high pitch somewhat audible but when they're bugling at ninety yards patrick it. It's a intestinal bowel shaking. You feel it before you hear it. It's just that raw it's pretty powerful and intense. And if you haven't ever been it. Oh that close when bowl just screams at you. Hey you're in my space go away. That's it's an experience all of its own so what happened on. This bowl comes in on a string. Then what he came in straight out the the lose shooter I think seventeen yards and shooter sounds like he made. He was already drawback. Calm steady you know had ranged it. And the arrow just didn't hit the mark and that that frontal shot is. It's very lethal. I've been on a four frontal 's and you know it has to go where it's supposed to go and you're talking about a grapefruit sized target so it's not a thirty five or forty yard shot. It's ten to fifteen year shot. And what i found this year. Was you really need to pay attention to the back. Two feet in. Oh if you can see more of one of his hindquarters than the other. He's not straight enough on to take the shot and you need to just wait till he turns right or wait till he keeps coming pasture which is hard. It takes a lot of restraint when you're talking fifteen sixteen seventeen yards in. Oh but you can't wait and try and shoot. Wally worlds. which you're going to have to do is if you don't have that shot and it's not i mean he's basically got to come straight at you and the goal of this old game is to get them to actually come past the shooter right. They're coming to look at the caller and and you know. Meet up with these other elk. So the goal is hopefully if the winds right. And you've done everything right. He walked right past you. But it's l. cut and patrick. I mean it's you can't you can't predict any of it so you know it just didn't happen. We did get the air off the string. And that's it was it was there was a real high of. Hey we got a great shot on a great bowl and we're going to get this and then it went through the the finding the arrow and finding and track and i mean all ultimately till later afternoon going now. This is not gonna end the way we thought the story was. So you know. Definitely do and your deal due diligence. Broad heads need to be you know everybody talks about broad heads all the time all well. This and that. I mean shot. Placement vitally is more important than broad. Heads they need to be a equality brand quality construction. You're not gonna use broadhead us on white tail on. Elk it home some of those broad heads that they market a two and a half inch cut. You hit a big mon on and elkin. You're not going to have a blade left right but you also don't want to be shooting little half inch or three quarter inch inch and a half up to two inch. Cut good solid construction. Mechanical or fixed is fine but being accurate with them. I mean and that's that's more important because honestly you put you put arrow through both lungs. And they're not gonna live doesn't matter what brought you so. Tell me a little bit about the equipment. And i want to talk about both spider. I mean i'm sure you guys were rocking the boat spiders. You're doing this hunt so how. How integral was that to game plan and helping you do this haunt. We'll we talked about the snow in the day. It was snowing We were just hiking and bugling and hiking and bugle. And then i caught movement. Because it's you know the whole grounds covered with snow at about ninety yards running. Full talk trot at us in a a medium size. Five point was just coming full oncoming on. I still had bugle to. My bo is clipped on my bow spider. And the guys behind me commented. They were amazed at how fast that bo was off. My back arrow knocked and full draw because at bowl full trot at ninety he came in and stopped at about forty eight yards. Just because the way the terrain was i was in the saddle. He was coming to the saddle. He got to the saddle where he could see where he heard that elk. And we found his tracks he'd been running trotting downhill for about five hundred yards in. That snow never made a peep never knew he was coming nothing. So i made the comment to the guys. I said you know yachts. It's my companies my product. I should be using it. But dang i love this bow spider right because it's i'm to the point. Now it's either my hip or on my back on my pack and my bow comes off when i need it and the rest of the time know when i did fifty percent calling and fifty percent hunting half the time i was shooter half the time i was the collar and i had my opportunities and it was a great season was probably one of the best. As far as elkin counters elk activity. Part of it was like i said i just. We probably got up a half hour earlier every day. We are a little bit smarter about where we went playing the wind. I wasn't always pushing ten miles deep every day. A couple of days we went on a normal david walkabout and he asked my hunting partners with that. Is david just kinda puts the afterburners on and want to see what's over the next ridge but there's a lot of days. We descript meadow and chilled out and got into quite a few elk. So that bo spider honestly patrick. I mean we're talking. You do an average of ten miles a day some days twelve. Some are only eight. Like i said just because we we played it. Cool this year but.

"Get that midday doldrums when you're l cutting where sometimes it's just. They shut down activity especially this year. The moon phase was right out of sync or in saint. I don't know how it you wanna say but it was i. I remember laying in the walton. Going to bed about nine and we get about four and about ten o'clock. I kind stirred my sleeping bag. And look mike what somebody turn the light off outside because the whole tense illuminated and you go look outside. That mood had come up. Full moon middle of september is not. It's not a fisherman or an elk hunters favorite friend. Now it's hard because then the animals are active at night when you're not out hunting and actively shooting and so that makes it tough for hunter. Yeah the the horses more than once figured out that our solar fence the battery is a little bit weak so it quit shocking at night now the they'd be in all day while we were gone But at two o'clock in the morning. I'd be awoken to stomping in thundering hooves and i'd get up and my my jammies quick. Put a coat on because it was cold and didn't really need a flashlight. But i had to go grab a lead rope and run around wrangle them back in so one thing. We did this year with the horses. That really made it a pretty pleasurable is. We took a stock tank in the last two years. We've just been watering a morning and night right so you have to be back for sure and their horses and camper a lot of work now they definitely. I mean they earn their keep. They make where we go. And what we do viable. I mean a lot of the places we hunt you put a bowl down. It's gonna take two guys in. Oh four trips which mean you're pretty much one trip. A day may be too if you really push it mean. You're talking six hours roundtrip. Sometimes and so you do that to two guys and you're pretty well burnt for a couple of days you need. He needed camp day just to get off your feet. So having the capability of we hang the meat. Like i've talked about and run out. Grab the horses run back in. Make them carry all that weight and his. you know. that's one thing we've talked about on this podcast before if you're going hunting have a plan for if you're successful and don't whether it's antelope in august like we've talked about. I mean the the best thing with those get the skin off. Get the hide off. Get the guts out. Get them quartered and on ice in less than sixty minutes. I mean it's got to be done now because it can be triple digits when you're harveson antelope and a little ninety pound or hundred antelope is not going to keep very well in that heat. I mean even big elk isn't but thankfully typically when we're harvest in these elk kits in oh down to forty s at night. It's refrigerator outside if not it was colder this year was. Here's a couple morning. We woke up in the fifteenth. Going hunting so it was. It's a little tough to get up. We have a woodstove in that walton. And i'll tell you what that that definitely warmed you through the core. That was nice to be able to come back in and crank it up. Heat up a little bit and but i've wanted to ask you what your strategy was. Because of the full moon i mean. Did you approach anything differently. We ended up getting up actually a little bit earlier in actually locate in those bowls in the dark losing a locate bugle and trying to just through echo-location figure out where they were headed for their bedding time and we'd just follow him instead of usually. We're just trying to intercept them between their feet in their bed this year. A lot of times before daylight. They've already left those feeding grounds. And they're they're moving and their head and their localization was dropping down to. I mean the first few days was amazing was great elk hunting. We're talking fifteenth sixteenth seventeenth. We are in between multiple multiple bowl screaming at each other chased him down. You know bugle them. They turn around and come back to challenge in that was. It was the typical the elk. Hunting that i liked to do right which is go in there and instigate a fight and get the boulter to respond. That is fond win. There can be in chickens a little bit and they'll answer you and go the other way. It's just not as much fun as when when you get that thousand pound animal running at you instead of running away from you. It's a know. I guess those still spall moments of just insanity happen. That's pretty cool. So as far as like you know your camp your setup so you said the digital a little bit different with the starting this year. Was there anything else that you modified just to make it a little bit better. But like i said. We brought that electric fence in. We had just been highline them witches. It's a good secure way to keep them. And if you don't know what a high line is. It's just a rope tied between two trees in the new thai horse to each. There's a segment a loop inside that rope right so like longlining for halibut right. You've got your main line. And then you put your droppers of your bait or trout lining kind of thing and the reason that you need to do that is if you tie a horse to a tree every day for as long as we were there you know they're gonna the lead ropes gonna ring that tree and kill it so pretty much. You know you do that year after year after year in the same can't do you have no live trees are out. And you're gonna be in blow down so highlighting is is the preferred method. If you're in a couple let's say seven days in a camp in the wilderness but having net electric fence we could just. It's it's better on the horses. They get to stretch out and walk around a little bit. You know better mentally forms. Well they're they're getting to do something instead of just stand tied. No we had the high line. And once i i figured out that i was going to get up at two o'clock in the morning and catch horses every night when we come in at dark eyed catch him time and then before we left every morning in the dark. I'd just on clip them. And i actually left the lead ropes just tied on the high line so i just had to grab a halter walk them over there and clip them up but having that area electrified was pretty nice. As far as in a we take Wyoming hey cubes up which is a certified we'd freed feed and you don't wanna be feeding your horses weeds and sprinkle on those around the wilderness. Right we all know why but it was pretty easy as far as give them some feed in the morning. Give him some in the evening. When you're back and that stock tank held about five six days worth of water so you know if for some reason we couldn't make it back till the next morning and i'll be happy with me but and you can't do that everyday with horses like llamas or something else. Yeah they'll they'll tolerate that a lot better but you know it's nice having that kind of backup plan because if we get an cried at dark in. I'm not worried about getting back. Getting horses watered. Dig out water. Though they'll be all right. I'll feed him a little extra heavy the next day. Now those wyoming. Hey cousy grown across the from me so it's pretty cool that you're those up there but does do come in handy. I'm sure oh there. You can get certified bales but ocean volume of how long were up there. And how many how much feed we actually need. It's it's now it's not cost conducive. It's expensive it's like five bucks per day. What my normal horse feed is here at home. But it's it's worth it to have like said having those critters they're having horses. They're having that backup plan in place of what we're gonna do with meat. Wants an elk hits the ground. It was worth it and i said this year was a tough tough haunt we had. We had several tags and camp. Several guys had lots of encounters lots of opportunities just between the the moon and then we got some snow. And i'll give everybody a tidbit. The last three years when it snowed during archery season. I get really excited at my. Oh i get to hunt elk in the snow. Every year their activity level decreases seventy five percent. We still call balls and we still had fun but for about ninety six hours after that and it was enough snow that was you could track in it right. We're not talking just a flurry. My opinion elk hunting in the snow archery season. If you wanna be actively colin bowls in is not and if it snows again next year archer season. I'm gonna. I'm gonna take off and go meal deer hunting. I two days. Yeah it it changes the game but you know in response to that. You've got to change your game. Obviously and so you guys. I'm sure made some adjustments but tell some of the some of the stories of you know some of the encounters you had and some of the opportunities and and maybe you know maybe would do different next time so we we did a lot of actually two and three man team and the three man team seemed to be by far the most effective. And so we're we're bouncing around these meadows feed feeding where they're coming out big meadows and they're going back up to benches above the meadows to bed and we're catching them somewhere between there. You really wanna catch him kind of all. They're still out in the meadow. So you can position yourself where you think they're gonna go and might even have to call. You could just slip around that meadow and while they start slowly feeding their way out of the metal. You can just walk. Walk right along. Edge the meadow and intercept them. But this year wasn't that so there's one bowl in particular in the arrow got shot at him but he didn't. He didn't end up getting him but we had a three man team. And this particular morning i was the main caller and then we had the shooter and then a backup shooter slash backup colorado. So if you think about three guys strung out in the line the first guys kind of the shooter the guy in the very back is calling again in the middle can do either if the bowl slips around the first guy the second guy is going to get him but we did a lot of column back and forth between that guy and myself. And we got this boldest fired up and we actually crossed the bottom of the drainage twice cross the river in climbed up basically. The bowl is on the north side. We climbed up he. He answered us a little bit on the north but there was a bowl on the south side than it was answering a little more aggressively says. Let's go after that one we got over. There climbed up to his bedding area and crickets silent. We're over there setup for about a good half hour and we've we've got a pretty good in omega bunch of calling make a bunch of racket. Sit down and be quiet especially that late morning. Nine ten o'clock when they're going to bed you may get a bowl that is going to go put his cows to bed and circle back around real quick and see if you know if there is a loan cowher so that cadence that rhythm calling in a you and i wanna call in sixty seconds later one and oak to roll in in their world in income back twenty minutes later and come see. Who's there and that's fine with them. They for some reason have something on their mind or agenda so there's a lot of people out there that are smarter and wiser than me at this but definitely this year. We utilize the tactic of. I said we cross that river south chase nut bowl got up. There ripped a couple. Big bugles about twenty minutes of quiet and that bold the north just started firing off and we figured out is that bullet actually was working on his way to his bed. He's pretty active bugling in his feeding area less active when he was moving and once he hit his bed daddy started talking to us and so we crossed back north across that creek again. And it's you know you've got to climb some pretty steep banks in and out of the creek. We're not talking ten feet. We're talking in seventy five yard pretty sloppy bank down to the creek. Get across the creek. Climb that seventy five yards backup before you can even hear anything so that whole time. You're transitioning you don't know if that oak still going to be there or not and it's a lot of energy and expense you know physical capital just to get it done so we happen across that and he had come down back out of and come down and gone up in that half hour window so we started sneaking up there and this was actually the second morning we are working on this same bowl and he had done the exact same thing in the morning before he'd got our wind and that wind at about nine o'clock in the morning the sun is come up. It's hitting those north faces. Really heaton him up. And that's gonna start lifting the air as the heirs warming but the backside of those air still cooling so still sucking down so you get really swirling wind depending on which side of what ridge you're standing on now by ten eleven you've got full sun full heat and you pretty much have enough graph. Tell the sun goes behind the the hill in the afternoon evening. So you know you're going to have early mornings. Usually you got wind going down. Mid morning to win just swirls all directions and then you know all day. It's going to blow up till mid afternoon. It's gonna squirrel and then sometime evening it'll start blowing down. I've patrick you know. Everybody says play the play. The wind play the wind. And you have to mean elkins z. Personnel. i mean they can smell you to three hundred yards away and it only takes a breeze blowing their direction it can be blowing. Let's say the winds blowing south for forty minutes straight and you're climbing in a lables north in front of year climbing up climbing up and also you just get a little guest for three seconds on the back of your neck. If you're close enough percents can adrift up to him. And it's all over just that quick. I mean you can invest a ton of capital time so that wind is you can't especially in the mountains where we're at. You can't ever now predicted you can't guarantee it you just have to do your best and realize you're gonna mess up more than you succeed with. The wind and i had some people. Ask me that. When i went on my trip though like with. Which way is the wind going to come out of as like well pretty much every direction. 'cause that's just the way it is in the winter amount. I mean you don't know. I mean five minutes ago have been coming out of the south ten minutes later. It's out of the west. So i mean i mean you guys were working hard. You're playing the wind. You're trying to make the right approach trying to trying to do the right things and those alec as you said you know before i mean they can just they educate you more and more every year because they do something a little different so this bull gave us a good education that we we continually bugle from that bottom feeding meadow. We had done the same thing. Cross the river onto the ball in the south he. He completely went radio silent so this was the second morning. Where i'm sitting here going deja vu because just right and we actually. I let those guys get further in front of me. Which was a little harry. But it did a couple things. One was the day before we acted like a continuous heard. That was moving closer to him. This day i acted more like a heard was down in the metal feeding and we were definitely corresponding back and forth him and i and i just kind of kept his attention and kept him vocalizing enough while the other two guys slipped in about ninety or one hundred yards away and then we went radio silent for about ten fifteen minutes and i moved right up behind him and i just. I moved up to where i thought they were. They'd moved far enough up in through the timber that i wasn't quite sure whereas at a couple of times i looked around while i was loudly. Cow calling and bugling and raking a going you know was guys are about one hundred hundred fifty yards above me if a bear is appears out behind one of these trees. I'm i'm lunch and you know we're not talking that i'm i'm paranoid of bears and where we're down here in flats are under house patrick. I'm talking. we're a mile past the metal that we've seen the grizzly walk across midday and not even give it care in the world right. So we're we're in his his back pantry basically and we're acting like his his supper. So you know. I was a little concerned about that and i finally i was like i. Carry a two cans of hairspray. An carry a ten m m hard cast bullets One canterbury sprays clipped to my backpack. The other canterbury sprays actually in the pocket of my pants. If i'm for whatever reason take my backpack off it happens sometimes during the day you know you go in the bathroom taking a nap. Whatever you know. But i pretty much religiously try.

"Well hello and welcome. everybody. I'm david maryland. We're in the bow spider studio. You'll have to excuse patrick edwards. He's not with us today. We sorely miss. You patrick. he's out and about enjoying the outdoors. So we'll get right into it. I have randy and candy. Oh here in the studio. Hello and welcome guys. Thank you thank you. that'd be here. So what brought you all the way to the studio today. A guy named david merrill. No we live in oregon. Apologize for that right now and we won't hold it against you perfect perfect but then you're my whole life actually so it was a great date at one time but things are starting to slip a little in my opinion right. We're all entitled to opinions exactly exactly but no we Do the general elk tags here in wyoming and we also had a couple antelope tags. We decided minutes. We're going to be here anyway. We'll put him for antelope. Got them burner points. And till we did the al-qaeda and then we went and shot a couple of goats and had a great time. Well i got take a sneak it at an elkin couple henlopen you've got some fine representatives for the st l. We have one so love to get out there absolutely so if a listeners don't know we've had random candy on before and talked about kind of what got you guys into the outdoors and what you're doing now. Let's let's get an update on what's what's new. What's new Not a whole lot new. I'm just is homeless. People now sold their house building the spring probably but when lumber prices come down a little bit exactly other than that knows he'll hunting and all weekend much as an got perhaps coming up and also will i seen a couple ladies. Hunting camps went off this year absolutely and they were fantastic this year. Say we were totally full. And we're looking at maybe four more next year including kids hunting camp perfect. So where are those being hosted at the moment if people wanna try and get in. Yeah so currently. We don't have it completely set but we're looking at the second or third weekend in march in wickenburg arizona Just because we have no more time available in the summer and then we will probably do a long range Advanced rifle camp somewhere in june and then in july we'll have a youth hunting camp for both boys and girls Some of the boys are feeling a little left out. And then we'll have our regular ladies team kim in that's going to be in fort. Rock oregon and the long range is going to be in sheridan wyoming with the weatherbys cracked awesome. Well we were glad that weather here in wyoming. Because they're they're very welcome in our state. Yes and we're glad you guys are putting those camps together and and you know that's kind of the mission of this podcast is hunting and fishing and everything in between getting families and youth and women and even just older guys in the outdoors and so seeing other people that are trying to promote. That mission is really neat to you. Know i've i follow along a little bit on your social as far as ladies hunting camping. It seems it's almost a cult. Following those women come in and join this brotherhood so to speak right they get welcomed into the fold. It's neat to see pretty cool. It empowers them assist cool for us to see the success stories or just hunting stories even not successful successor to them because they've never done it so many of them have never even entered at all you know and others have but l. come together and they make great friendships that they can ask the lifetime and you know what it's like. The first is september even into august. Some of the envelope punts. And you see like that's when you wanna get on social media to see everybody's success and that's so cool because it empowers you to go out and try to get the biggest soccer the biggest bowl or whatever just gets you motivated. What really gets me going to watch those women who have never had success and when they do. I mean there was probably five or six that have attended in last two years. They've got their first animal this year and to watch that is really cool and i want to bring up I mean that is that is awesome. But my my thought while you're talking about that is you know randy i come from the outfitter world right and we've been in that and it's all about getting the big six point and and one-upmanship and that's kind of the old guard a little bit you know little bit newer hunters coming in about the protein. It's about the meat and that's not to say that in the old days we weren't about to meet right but i've noticed a trend of guy pulls into a gas station and there's a spike in the back of his car or a doe or whatever happens to be and you hear people say well shouldn't you let that one grow year or that one's got milk on their their trophy shaming. They're they're they're putting somebody down for harvesting that animal. It's not right. Because maybe you don't know that i mentored a kid and took him on his first hunt and he got his first animal and so now his first memory is. I did something wrong now. There is a tiny little bit of room for trophy shaming if your neighbor every year shooting a forward horn deer and in the backyard you could kind of say if we let that deer mature a little bit. He's gonna put on a couple of fifty extra pounds. He's going to be better at adding to the gene pool. There's a whole bunch of positive things for doing that. And we won't get into that but you know if your neighbors that the guy that every year goes out shooting spike elk for twelve years in roads. I hey let's let's try and one up the level here but whether it's a youth or lady or woman or even old guy guys i hunt you know if you pull into the gas station. He's proud of it. Don't that's not the time or place to tell him silently now side. Sam kill some great bowls and boxes and so on and so forth but my fun time is when i'm not trophy hunting. I just enjoy it so much better. Like i call in a bowl shot this season. Just just shot of nice five point us. Happy app is alert. it's like last retrofit. Hundred in had a great tag in utah. Passed up tons of ice balls. And i never did my tag i did. I had my opportunities tons of opportunities. But i kept looking for that. I just was looking for that giant and it was fun but sometimes you get caught up in that you know the score in the size and so to me. I don't know i. Just sometimes it's fun to go bein. Over the counter tag and some state. And you don't expect to shoot nothing but a rag warner five point or whatever. Just have a great time. And that's i mean that's unit specific and that gets down to having that knowledge and background. And like you said you. Drew a limited entry utah tag and went with an expectation. If you had that same expectation on an over-counter oregon tag. You're going to be sorely disappointed every year but even here in wyoming there you can go hundred miles one way to another with different unit. And you're going to go from you know four hundred potential in bowls to you know if you see a branch antler bowl. That's that's your trophy so in. That's kind of why i started bow. Hunting is a a door a cow the trophy with the bow. It's fun yep but it's more fun because you with that bo you have to get to rifled distance where you're lethal without rifle and figure out how to get ten times closer. It's you get into that to three hundred yards and from two three hundred yards to twenty thirty yards. A lot could go wrong. And we're right here in the high season so tell us a little bit about your bull that you just harvested general season tag. We pick a spot and start doing homework up there. We found a beautiful place camp right near the correct so we had tons of water. A beaver pond. It was so exciting. Sometimes that the camp atmosphere can be almost even better than the actual.

"Cast is on letting fishing and everything in between this is red cast outdoor here david merrill and patrick edwards. Hey patrick what's really good about. Having a good friend that goes walleye fishing. What's that you get wall. I occasionally yeah. I don't usually turn down. Wally on sunday. We fried up package. It magically appeared in my fridge it was pretty awesome and it was really good. Cook it up the same way. I do halibut. Little bit of high mountain seasoning. Little flower little egg rolled around trojan small and the pan till it's golden brown at. Does it get any better net. You can use as far as breading. I like panko. I'm panko fan Right japanese breadcrumbs. But you can use rich crackers. I mean you can use flour. You could use pancake batter way anything right. That's get a hold some greece and stick to it definitely got bag that we put some seasoning in there so i try to new method. This weekend i had some northern pike in some walleye. And i tried. The gourmet fish seasoning from high mountain on one and then the by bass on the pike and the by you best also high mountain seasoning which one was better. I really liked the by bass. I think i would to buy you best better too but i also did this thing where i made a i made a ruined then made a cream base and i put the by. Basque seasoning into that and mixed it up really good and Once we once. I got that mixed into the cream and then put that over the fish. I mean that was foof. I was really good. I'm not gonna die that it was but that cream sounds like A non dairy person's nightmare. Yeah so we did that I baked it in the oven to cook it but it turned out really really well but yeah the having the walleye in the freezer and having walleye this time of year. It's always nice to do so. I figured why not talk about how to get some walleye and some methods because a lot of people. They've got fish patterned certain times of year. But they don't really have them pattern throughout the year and Walleyes i'll just tell you they don't stay in one spot. It's one of those fish that you know they go..

We both have young families. And we're both avidly into the outdoors whether it's fishing hunting or of both. So that's our goal is to You know recruit new new anglers and new hunters to the to the outdoors around. The timing is really appropriate for unit. We've got a whole new.

Nobody's covering it. Yeah it's it's been fun to watch you over the years. 'cause you you've really helped kind of teach everybody about that and i know as a kid. I always look forward to outdoor life coming in the mail and also in fisherman magazine because that was that was kind of the thing was you know i wanted to learn more about fishing and growing up in cheyenne wyoming. It was like a dead zone fishing. I mean there's there's really not much closer unless you're going to drive like two hours to glendow three and a half hours to seminal five hours to voice in like you just forget about it. There's just nothing there so you're talking about teaching people. I was reading that as much as could. Because i knew when i went. I had to really capitalize on those trips and sell ob. You've done amazing job about that. And i just wanted to know if you could just share some tips with us you know. What's what's in key strategies of getting kids and just other anglers out on the water. What are some good strategies and tips number one number one. Make sure you take him when you can get a bit people. I i mean i can't old is powered pork edges especially with the younger ones. That have a short attention. Spans inter is critical. That baba's going down or something pulling on the end of that line and Are that's one in even with a new adults and we have a lot of those coming into the sport now that have never fished before and yes. They have patients where the young people don't however their patients will wane after one or two trips without getting up by. It's the biggest hinderance that i've seen to our sport and your people neck key is getting a bit a bike. Too late that fire they gotta catch something and You don't wanna take him out in this herbal weather conditions yet the weather good into everything your power to make sure that they get back in there and the reason people fish in continue to fish is they had a good experience and a good experience is something pulling on the end that the wire gets really the reason you're out there. That's what motivates people is the miracle of of this. It is amazing to me. My entire life in this business to see would fish can do this change. Somebody's like yeah. Yeah you know a kid sitting under edging blue gills and all of a sudden nowhere. A two pound bass runs out reminders. That back and grabs your bank. You never had. You're catching a six inch blue gills and having a ball in this best is your hook break where your life forever somebody had never muskie fish. You know they heard something about it. They're they're going out with somebody that knows something about all of a sudden next to the boat. This monster opens his mouth bites on. It's an image yet burns into your into your spirit that change. It never goes away. That's what likes to fire in this sport. And here's why it's so important. That that their two n into good weather to do it in your. That's the key is to get get a matching get a matching get them and then if they're really young after three hours to think to run into live whether you get a few fish rockets there fascinated with fish bouncing around in a live That's the key really. Is the key to keep them motivated. Keep them fishing kit. In a short period of time you know and again with the adult young person after after you know you get them out for two trips. Third time Yeah you're going to say you want to go fishing or meet today too bad experiences them. They're gonna go bad back in play video games. Interests will beer so al. I was fortunate enough to grow up near salt water and my dad in the pacific northwest. We did a lot of salmon and halibut and deep sea and i got introduced very young to fishing.

Fish was just the joy on your face. You were always you know chuckling and laughing and having a great time and we were just living vicariously through you as the wind. Blew about seventy miles an hour through cheyenne. But i mean it's it's just it. It really did make a big difference. And i do want to. I want to ask about this because this is really important to david. Ni- we we both have little kids and we take them out fishing hunting different activities. And you know you have kids of your own. And and i know. He's very influential and big into the fishing businesses. Well but can you talk a little bit about what that was like raising your kids to be fishermen but also you know kind of raising them during that time that you know you're just so busy and you got all these things on with the with the fishing world and the fame that you had going on. How did you manage all those things and still make it a great experience for your kids. They grew up in the business. they did. There's not all all seven right here except in children. I've got two boys all of the kids. even girls. Three of his kids are girls. They all served in the business wing. Some of your friends. At the time we started lindy dako copier reports sinkers learning advertised snow. Rapper mind cars. Were exposed to the business is a family run. I mean all their life you know and they grew up in many different fields yet. You know it other things. But-but-but number stayed in the business in our in the business today like jim. dna billing and mesa troy. Yeah you know and and my daughter niece who worked as a pr rest. For many many years fishermen still welts me A right right material and press releases and things like that you with the gifted in that area but they grew up in the business thing. Yeah and and that way you were able to spend time together so they understood it. They understand the crab and the things that this life style. If you went to make a living a good comfortable living in deficient indiscreet. I don't hurt my myself and i know many people that you and i do not that then ended the business row ripley. Welcome rarities Actor to it these days. It's a lifestyle business that you want to get into anything cup. Lack of time it is. It isn't in ninth the fact you you know you eat sleep twenty four hours or so you go to bed at night thinking in still today at the. That's been in this my life. There is not one and go. That goes by that. I don't read something about fishing. Watch something about fishing. Talk to somebody about dishing. It happens all the time. Not a day goes by where some aspect of it is in touch in my life. A part of my life in My closest friends are pretty much involved in fishing industry. Right closest friends. Are that sparks your question for me. L. and that's you know i'm kinda way way beginning of this journey. I've got a small family run company but it's in the hunting outdoor space. And you know. My boys are being raised growing up when we work right. We have stuff to do. There's it's a small family run business. it's not you know. Dad goes to work at nine. And we're we're done at five and let's go do x and y but my question is long term for me. My dad took me fishing law. And now i go hunting and now. My boys are in a hunting company being raised. How did you see kind of the transition of with raising these kids. In the company in fending fishing industry they stayed on and continued to fish and still thrive as that was our was that a positive experience for them. Oh yes yeah. Yeah for a number of now. There's some of them that was not. I'll use my to poison example. My oldest son george in here in heat you shared with the. I'll give you my first experience with it. needs he. He was raised in the business. He worked in. It works wade through until they went off to college in it but he was interested in fishing gets his passion in his case. Was things that move fast snowmobiles motorbikes four wheelers dirt bikes. This is what he loved to do. Sounds like we'd get along pretty. Well do troy and the other hand off from the time. He was a little tiny kid. You could see the seat of he would be back in front of our h- house here a day and night catching frogs and just running up and down the bank catching he'd loved it from the time he was four or five years old internet. Never change he absolutely left. And i just think again. God created all slightly different with different interests and is a good thing. You had one boy in the garage tinker on motors and going faster and you had another guy you couldn't keep at the house. He was taking his fishing pole and he was to the water at four and five. Yeah in in in you and your the answer. Paracha half have respect know. I respect that. They have to be their own person in in in seek out for thinks the all that you know that those different interest levels impacted their right as they were growing up in reading some cases to to what they're doing today you know again my son toys into it in a lot of different areas of my oldest son and interestingly he he he liked even as a kid. You're living on the edge. He here you love the excitement of the snowmobile races today. He he'd get so pumped on yet in today. He's he's the paramedic he's a wilderness paramedic in he's fighting fires -fornia loves the game. You're whites. He likes ribbon on the edge to me. I like living on the salary to belated contentment. That's what i really like. And you know. I follow troy on social media and that that guy is always out doing something. And he's. he's an incredible fisherman. I mean it's it's yet it just anything anywhere any way any loves digging around in offbeat places for a coupla. He's got he's got pack whereas in no matter where he goes scurrying rats. He sees the body of water anywhere. Anything they could hold the fish he just drives up insider road. And rodney goes spacious anywhere anywhere crapping around the country with him because spent he's spent some time out west and i know he's fish some areas where i've been and it's just kinda cool to see that and i do want to ask you a question about that. Everybody has some of those favorite moments. What it was like a favorite moment for you fishing with your kids that you can recall the years ago with troy. I'll give you a. I'll give you my my oldest son that never got turned onto it and here's winter. Mistakes that make made with the there was a series the best tournament series. Starting in minnesota zillion years ago it was called the northstar bash turned into and when he was about four years old. I took an pre fishing. Mary and i got a cabin on the lake. And i took him pre fishing for that tournament with me and he had snoopy rag. You had snoopy rag. And they had to wait spinner baits. Then you know it was cool. We're up in the morning out. Who day thinking around. He's dragging this spinner baits through the water. And you know. I'm trying to catch some fish. Internet little said something. It's something from we'll get more moves out to have been great you you you hold in iraq ruled colin. He looks at me. it looks at the rad. He throws looked at me again. I got the message. You burn me out so bad. And so i think there's a balance there were so you know. My dad took me steelhead fishing. And i've i've got quite a few steelhead to my name. And if anybody out there knows steelhead there they can be finicky and tricky fish to catch i. I mean the passion for catching them is kinda gone. I've i've i've been out steelhead fishing and i've seen this in the hunting industry where you know you get some guys. That are pretty. Some prowess in are pretty successful. They take their sixteen seventeen year. Old son out. He shoots a world calibre elk and ten years later. He's he's not in elk cutting he's into fishing or snowmobiling or something else does. Ruggles images of the other side of that story would try. What are the experiences a for a number of years we as a family. A number of where we fished in tournaments in canada Rainy lake in minnesota canadian border. Another one at nor tap happened awake to work and we fish team tournaments up there and over the years that we hit fished at is a group together ranch fish with one of his sons.

And i did a couple of seconds and thirds internet but did win one with him in california and in went ahead and opportunity. You get fish with you. Those times that we're in those events burn memories that they talk about still in. Those chips are really important with father and a son. I know with my dad. We had an annual trip that we would take to flaming gorge and that always meant the world to me because we'd spend five or six days out on the gorge just fishing and not worrying about all the other stuff you know. The work stresses of life. And you know i had told you in an email about a trip to voice in just those kind of trips. Just make a huge difference in a young english life and death makes it something that makes them wanna come back later ended it burns into your sweet. You get so excited and then you think about it so often you think you keep revisiting that your mind. Our great great great experience. Yep absolutely and i wanted to touch on something else because we do try to help you know young new people into get into fishing and whatnot. And what are some tips that you give people when they're going to a brand new fishery and they've never been there before. What do you tell him to look for. And what are some tips that you give them. You know it's gotten a lot easier these days because of social media into local bites really. I mean you're you're you're deficient research on lake levels in what the bites been like recently. Water clarity stabilized. Image is endless. In comparison to what we had sixty years ago running through the changes that i've seen are gathering in the business of what the liberal. But you could do so much preliminary work you know. Get getting on your computer Checking out google earth. Going to local site Hunting down to let local reports. That give you an idea of what the bite is like what they're biting that. Yeah you know. Even to death preferences that stuff today is is in most cases. These areas have a very dependable week. Al outlet and that retail outlet Is a great source of information. They don't hide stuff from people they want you to have a good experience and they have fishing reports. That are done weekly. yeah you know. There's things that are posted a soon as their retail operation. So they give you the most up to date information you can possibly get and the is saves you so much time by doing a little bit of homework. So i'll you've got fish a lot of places in your lifetime. What was one of your favorite destinations. One place you wanna go go back in two at this point so far i probably one of the greatest place that i would go go bad bad and it was a family of them.

He's still thought at their daddy issues. Deck it was unbelievable scene and fifty three inch this. We figured it was mid thirty pounds. You know thirty five thirty eight pounds something again. Maybe it was. It was jackie gigantic for bike. That was half water. Fish birds played beat of ball. That would be. That would be a lot of fun. I now i'm like. Wow that sounds like a blast. But i wanted to change gears just a little bit One of the things that have admired you for years is that you're not afraid to talk about your faith and i think that that's very important thing and you know i want to see if he can share just a little bit about your spiritual journey and how god is played a big role in your life after the two most important parts of my life. The next year shared all all the time. It's fishing in my unity. Go hand in hand every day. Day is just part of my life. I integrated what we do with the television shows. You know the the impact that it it a try to kind of quickly for you until the time. I was thirty five years old. You know i was a person. It was not an atheist store. Nick knight that nasdaq. I probably would have favored more upper eighty s. And i don't believe anybody that spends any amount of time in the outdoors anywhere can be an atheist. I think that's an impossibility. But i had no really. I was obsessed. And i guess that's the only word i could use obsessed with fisher twenty four seven. That was all that and you know. It gets all in our businesses. Were building at that point in time and At thirty five started giving turkey in my heart to Right to spirit a guy who was just tugging in my heart. I met people that that Turned her life over to the lord. Lord that were hard party hard-drinking people that i knew a hard partier. You know when they were like a different person you night and day and he started to talk to me about about jesus guy stuff i never heard of before the enemy sound comes with a lot of people you gotta understand nothing really new number and then i started the search knowing there's life got you got your busse heart who's much of his life in in one day turned us away lord has given us percents and i says well i i can't do it myself i need help i need your direction. I'm just saying guidance. Any made a confession of faith. Like they're nice and his life and then for about two years you know i wandered around back. Studied the word guide. The bible began challenged thing to me to get through a through know little things like could this really be real. You know like so many people. It's this bible. Could this stuff really. But this this thing is is there a guide the foundation guiding coke. Jesus was the foundation. Is this thing that he really is is. He says he is to be comfortable recently. Said he did from beginning to end. Yeah you know. And i started looking at this stuff. You know one day it got out of my head arc. It was never less years. All i can say is if you truly search is real. He's there you care some words to be. It's a real experience. You know the the point he's got to get out of your head in it. You have become a part of my everyday life. I'm not ashamed for the dash. That's it openly. That's who lamb. And i can only share the experience that i hear. And how would i life. My family My outlook on business. Now look on life right back by relationship with my wife and the older. I get a clearer easier. It is for me out to be more appreciative of of my lord grayson so al. I've got a question. It's a immuno high positive this way in a as starting my own business in the outdoor industry and then walking in faith in how how has that affected you know business decisions and just in a living in the limelight and and outwardly expressing. Your faith is there. You know ever moments of doubt. I mean 'cause i in today's society and day and age is definitely not something that's widely accepted. Are you saying in here by some subject back. But what would you buy. S- i mean as far as just running a business and then walking in faith. I if you look at the marketing partners that i have every single one of a from boat motor rag reels lures lying a wreck. Chronics are the top right at the top of their field in their individual categories. Everyone of and we've been with them for many many many years. Some of them almost my entire career. And i've said in corporate boardrooms all over the country. Go going all over television space over television network and contract saying that we re mega conglomerate and never have. I had one of say anything about my confession of faith and that show it all. Most of them have said they appreciated it and go forward and one of the reasons for that is an and some of them are not people but they businesspeople and the bottom line. Is i self stuff for. That's what i still stuff on. I do my job or am i would absolutely. That's why they don't you know so it's it's a only one. Major major challenge would network. It was who was with a network and and jerry jones johnson. They want forgot about guy that that was the words that they came back came back and they said that it's interesting the way they did notification we played on this network for a number of years and this particular year correct when just the way it always hits in five weeks into the show and it was a wednesday afternoon when it got where got i got contacted by the president of networking. And he said it's gonna pull the show because you're religious stance on it. We don't believe it's we. We went network anymore. This was on a wednesday. We get i managed. They did this going to pull it if we did we. Did we read it. Every i reiterate that we think energy i get contract signed with a bunch of sponsors and i had to deliver the numbers in so we get at that show and euronet weekend in the entire re edited version. And we continue our attorneys. Said you know you've been with. They want to take the court. You can't beat it you got. You ran for five weeks already. You did this for years. They never get it. They can't do for this thing and and they talked iran in in my wife. Laura his wife's no we'll go to thorough. They don't want you. i don't i don't want to be there. they want. They want us to be pulled what they want. They wanted to be this what we did back to show to them. We make the changes in our last of the contract for the television season. We sent them with bill. They said the bill hearing on pitching to us and we sent them the bill. Bill them back or the editing changes. We have to make sent it back. I never heard from them. That i didn't pay for the network in europe. Charge them back for all of the pain and misery went back bent. So it's no legal. Nobody called us back. Matt a single thing the legal. Nobody their legal. Nobody never heard from him since well. I'm really glad that you guys you know you. Un ron have have always been good about you. Know talking to people about your faith and it's been a centerpiece of the show and one of the parts of the show. The actually look forward to a bunch is the very end when you go through whatever god lays on your heart and i really just want to say. Thank you for doing that because we need to be able to talk about these things and i. It seems like culture is trying to move in a direction where they don't want you to talk about stuff that might offend somebody. But it's like you know these are things that we should all be talking about. You know if that's part of your life that's an integral piece. You should be able to talk about it. And there's one one thought i have on that. Patrick is to speak to have speech to have thought. You risk being offensive. Right to someone. And i mean if we're just gonna walk around muzzled and mass and never have a conversation about anything i mean. I'm into big game hunting that that can be offensive. Catching fish can be offensive. So we have to push back. We have to go. They'll run over here if you don't get you know and i'm a big thing an immediate business all my life. I'm a big believer a freedom of expression freedom of speech. Even if i don't with it so am i even. If i don't agree with it you still have a right to share. I understand and i respect it. And i think that's something that people need to remember. Is that just because somebody says something. You don't like doesn't mean you have to agree with them. You can just choose not to listen to that person anymore. I mean there's there's stuff that's put out all all the time that i don't listen to and i don't want to be associated with because i don't agree with what their stance is and you know there's plenty of stuff that i do love to watch and listen to that. I do agree with people that disagree whether you should catch fish on spawning beds are not right in an argument about that or you can easily selena when you can easily get there. But but again. I i like i said i. I respect our our freedom speeches. An expression is an important thing. I've been in the media business my life all my life and in people have a right this year that i have i a right. The like to tune into a cheddar offer. Do whatever i want with it not read it. I can exercise my own decisions. I'm not gonna go in there in equality sponsors sponsor them. Because you're doing this dead. I never do. And i think that's something that needs to be heard and i'm glad that somebody i'm sure a few people here it on this podcast but what you said is very true. We don't need you know this. Cancel culture of of things that you know. Ripples need to be able to share and people need to be adults about it and mature enough to handle it and choose what they want to listen to what they don't. I mean that's it's it's really part of the backbone of what what our country was supposed to be about and Were anyway i do to change gears. Just a little A guy that's been really influential in my life on fishing is pat o'grady. I met pat. Oh man that's probably been twelve thirteen years ago. And he was getting his company started. And i jumped in and helped him out with. Pk lures and here. He had told stories about you coming out to wyoming and doing some fishing. I remember reading. In the law. ally wisdom books About seminole and a few things. So i just wondered if you could share a little bit about coming out to wyoming. Western space are so different than northern or ride scary. Yo it's a whole different world and you mentioned to you mentioned alluded earlier when they get used to is. Never any wind ever ending win in. I mean if you go if you're going to fish you better better get used to win. Better not bothering you. The rick the vote right the handle nbc and being a safe piece the piece of equipment. They handle wind in it. I don't know if you guys ever go through three straight days in a row word you calm day never. I don't think lever happen. I go to archery shoots. And i have people say well. I'm not shooting in the wind and they start playing. Oh the winds blow. And i said well you come to wyoming. If you don't shoot or hunt in the wind just don't go hunting joke. Defeat w. t where we go to the code is as an example. You look at the weather report the night before they they say the win the window. We from fifteen to twenty five. It means it's going to be forty plus asu. It'd be forty dollars. Plus that's what you're going to get the truth. Well you talk about seminar. That is one of the windiest places. I think in the lower forty eight. I mean the the wind speeds on that reservoir are ridiculous. But i'll tell you the fishing is phenomenal. How many winter they put around it. Yeah they put a lot of wind turbines that sucker for good reasons but those western reservoirs growth big fish. Hey we're trying to keep that a secret. Al off carp fish is amazing and even some very. I'm a small mountain. i love smart fishing. The small mouth world small mouth. Fishing is as popular as it's become the tournament organizations. That have the come up north and since two small fishing and a great lakes and now they're coming everywhere yet yet you know you get to experience it in tournaments Love it the small mouth. Fishery that exists. West of the mississippi river is still some of the most unexplored smart fishing in north america systems. I can't you're innocent. At west of the river or to western states many of those reservoirs got phenomenal phenomenal. Nominal bishop i. I liked to tell the story. I've told a couple of times there's a. there's a river in oregon. I won't give the name but an all out to you. We drift boat floated at one day. And i hooked sixty small mouth in a day and i got tired of jagan forum. So i put on a mouse pattern. I tied and i caught. You know half a dozen small. He's on a mouse pattern. Just throw it right against the bank and start stripping out and they'd at that river this drift boat only so motorboats in that that can be a lot of fun i mean those are their sparkling out there and some of the some of the bigger systems pick the missouri river as an example for four. You've got set at saf. You've gotta wacky a. These are massive bodies of water massive massive systems and their in in in in there. I mean the small muppet. Nobody hears coast that they won't see an angler in your role year for small. Nobody'll be their four. Pack four pack is one of the most remote fisheries. I've ever been to. And i'll tell you what they're there have got to be miles and miles of shoreline that never get fished and i mean there's massive massive in their own up in way up at that even at the dry air dry air too short that is about what forty i think. That's forty miles long. And then you've got that main arms like one hundred and sixty miles long. There's very few accesses. Oh yeah you know you're right. I remember we had a pw heat from the tournament. They're in what we we got the attention that anisimov parsons weighed in. It was kabaya. They rent way when came to brought the smart in with his bad fish. So we could wait and it was like a six three or six or this. Was that smaller. That miniature scale in your macro swarm are up in san francisco. I couldn't pull about about have to lead. Somebody's somebody structures. Just drive in his crazy ton of them in there. That's an incredible says. I said there there miles up. It is the most untouched massive untouched mama. Fishing attack. the guy goes through not to mention some of the. There's one night and forget. That warned that they bleed. I think they believe their next record. Birsh sure commander there. I can't remember to saturday with no gather some wells. Old anti yeah. There's some fantastic fisheries out here. And i know just in wyoming alone. I mean you've got a number of really good reservoirs for walleye and you know a couple for small mouth that are really significant and a whole bunch that are good for trout of various species. And of course he got flaming gorge with those humongous lake trout. And that's and that's an incredible fishery to we touched on earlier smarter and they've they've kinda taken a dive the they they think that the Burbot that made their way there. Somehow somebody moved burbot down there into that drainage from apparently around this area and They just haven't they haven't done as well they they were doing really well in the early two thousands. I used to go down there with my dad and we'd catch some up to four four and a half pounds and now it's pretty hard to find them. They're still there. They're just not in the quantity that they used to be environmentally. Then yep There's something to be said for that. You know when i grew up steelhead fishing. You'd spend a lot of hours and when you finally hook into one of those thirty forty inch fish. I mean they they take you for a ride for a while but you can fish for two three four days before you even catch one hook one hook up you go small fishing and have those fisher so dang aggressive are fun. It's fun so that's one of the beauty of them. Yeah there's a there's a little reservoir here in wyoming that kicks out you around five pound fish. Pretty regularly And i i went there with a buddy of mine one time and we are fishing. Top water thing between josh. And i we we both got probably fish apiece just fishing little poppers on the surface in it was just a lot of fun and then that thing that you talked about al that happens in wyoming happened in the wind blowing really really hard to get off their old of the gun the boat for your life. Get your your jacket on. Got what. I'll tell you that much we got wet but so what's what's next. What's in the future. What's what's you know. What do you plan on. what's coming up. What are we. Should we be watching for and getting a little long into or the age also slowing down. A little bit i mean jimmy wego muskie fishing me for four hours. I ain't gonna go in our barrett fats or two pound rubber. Big thing can happen. You're only as old as you act. Al see you know strongest kid. My body doesn't want my five. You don't want to receive that. There are things that are wearing down a little think. That's wisdom speaking to abandon. No too so. I i have to pick pick and choose a little bit a little bit more but i still loved the game. I mean know as long as i can contribute that this sport in a positive way. I'm gonna do it. i'm not gonna. i'm not going to quit. I'm not gonna retire up. Going to crack back. And i mean by cutting that i wanna do more fun fishing on the shows. Jimmy jeremy that the staff and other people we work with. I'd like to see troy get a little more involved with this stuff. These guys you pick up the ball and run every night for long enough to fund fish a little bit more by that go do some things and places a lot of bodies of water that i'd like to play around a little bit now for two hundred and a lot of people don't understand that you know when you're going fishing for the weekend without a camera crew that that can be quite pleasurable when you're going filming for an episode that can be you know when you gotta redo takes a redo when you just wanna go explore to make it happen you gotta make. It's working people don't they. They sit in their living rooms and watch that and go. Oh well they were just they. Turn the camera on and went and had a fun time. There's a lot of hours behind the scenes when the cameras work was in. And then there's a year no it's addressing a lot of times a lacking half and on hot fight fetched but then when you dress the show after that. That's when you get the underwater cameras stuff out to fit. That fit the scene where the fisher coming in in to get the right drum shots environment. Those those all add to the editing and make it a little more exciting the music tracks that that go with it. you know. Music is so subtle in you know a lot of shows don't use music because you have to pay Their cost us thirty thousand dollars a year to use a music so yeah bachelor of music track because their royalties and alma my companies right in this is our very first go. My dad and i went she putting this last fall. We hired a cameraman and we took him. And i'm learning very quickly of the shortcomings of we didn't get you know. Be roll. Shot here and this extra shot here and you know getting that underwater shot or that overhead shot that you need in. It's you know it's really hard now to recreate and get those extra shots that we need to produce the film that i wanna purdue so make a real exciting piece you back. That'd be rollers goals man just putting the actual the actual easiest park. It is actually catching deficient getting their artist on films that easy. Then you've everything else is putting it together. It's all better than that anything. Sweetening the more things you have to compliment. Show the better. It becomes the up on where we're struggling. We're stretching it as as as as we can stay but it's fun man fun. It is a lifestyle worth living. Believe me i if you if you could do it. And you find a way to get your niche in their buck doing it your sizzle lifestyle business for a lot of people if you if money is your motivation and you want to get rich. Don't come fishing industry and here's a lifestyle some of us. I mean you could make a good comfortable but if money is silicon valley and they live in that world out there if you want to be able to go out and enjoy the great outdoors and have a comfortable lifestyle. Fishing industry in hunting industry. Got a better choice. you will never regret. it couldn't couldn't goodness it better myself. I have one more question and this is a really important question.

God bless you and You know be safe on your travels this year and i look forward to watch and more of the winter media so i appreciate it very pretty opportunities guys everybody habitation. Thanks a lot. So i think we should keep rolling for a minute. We'll wrap this show up and do you have to tell a story about al. I'm really glad he came on the show. In my first and only time that i've al was i cast in twenty eleven and i was working on my laptop and i was up in the las vegas convention center and i was sitting on the side. Which is a huge building enormous. I'm sitting out and kind of of the way trying to find a quiet place. I get wifi and do some work for pat gradient. Pk lure so. I'm working on it. And i see this guy. Come out the come off the stairs. I see that it's outlander. And i'm like oh man that's that's all inter i wanna go say. Hi and say thank you. And so i get up and start to head that way and i kid you not. It was like a stampede. The ground shook. You know the sky got dark. There's all these people just came from every direction and kind of cut me off and you know it was like okay. you know. These guys are more important than me. These our sponsors. You know these are guys that have a vested interest in talking to al. And so i'm like i'll just wait here for a minute. I'm sure clear out. It didn't clear out. The mass massive people just got bigger and bigger and bigger and then that mass move down to where all the booths were. And i was like well. There goes my chance. Shake his hand and say thanks But w quicker next time patrick. Yes but now. He's got to spend an hour talking with him and he's he's a wonderful guy and he's made an impact on my life that you i can only just tell you guys that it meant a lot to me today to be able to talk to him when i was younger. My mom passed away. When i was fourteen and after my mom passed away one of my things that it was kind of an outlet for me was fishing just to get away clear my head get away from life and my dad. I remember one saturday. He took me down to cabela's in sidney nebraska which is about a hundred miles from cheyenne. So he went to sydney. Bought some fishing gear but we also went and we found that they had a rack of in fishman. Vhs tapes and books and so we picked up those things and brought it home. And i mean. I was in those things. Like you wouldn't believe you know on those rough winners of shan that i keep talking about you know with the wind. Cystic crappie fishing. That was there. And i don't mean the fish you know we we would watch those videos. And we'd get amped up for that next trip to the gorge to catch small mouth or that trip that we had that next year where. We just clobbered the ele- perch walleye at poison. So you know those kind of things really mean a lot to me and just al and just the way is just how he has so much. Fun has so much joy around fishing. It's just so inspiring to me and so having him on was a big deal. You know for me today so it was great but i learned that and positively right. Vate faith and fishing is what he said. But you if if you're not having fun in this industry and he really did hit the nail on the head. Yes it's it's nice to be able to get to a point. You could make a living at it. But if you wanna make money go to silicone valley go go go create the next app or whatever the next thing is you make money and live that lifestyle but you know he touched on it. He's been in the industry for longer than about anybody and he still working i. It's it's crazy. He's seventy six years old and he's still going and just definitely an inspiration to a lotta people and one of the things.

They have patients where the young people don't however their patients will wane after one or two trips without getting up by. It's the biggest hinderance that i've seen to our sport and your people neck key is getting a bit a bike. Too late that fire they gotta catch something and You don't wanna take him out in this herbal weather conditions yet the weather good into everything your power to make sure that they get back in there and the reason people fish in continue to fish is they had a good experience and a good experience is something pulling on the end that the wire gets really the reason you're out there. That's what motivates people is the miracle of of this. It is amazing to me. My entire life in this business to see would fish can do this change. Somebody's like yeah. Yeah you know a kid sitting under edging blue gills and all of a sudden nowhere. A two pound bass runs out reminders. That back and grabs your bank. You never had. You're catching a six inch blue gills and having a ball in this best is your hook break where your life forever somebody had never muskie fish. You know they heard something about it.

It's an image yet burns into your into your spirit that change. It never goes away. That's what likes to fire in this sport. And here's why it's so important. That that their two n into good weather to do it in your. That's the key is to get get a matching get a matching get them and then if they're really young after three hours to think to run into live whether you get a few fish rockets there fascinated with fish bouncing around in a live That's the key really. Is the key to keep them motivated. Keep them fishing kit. In a short period of time you know and again with the adult young person after after you know you get them out for two trips. Third time Yeah you're going to say you want to go fishing or meet today too bad experiences them. They're gonna go bad back in play video games. Interests will beer so al.

And and i know. He's very influential and big into the fishing businesses. Well but can you talk a little bit about what that was like raising your kids to be fishermen but also you know kind of raising them during that time that you know you're just so busy and you got all these things on with the with the fishing world and the fame that you had going on. How did you manage all those things and still make it a great experience for your kids. They grew up in the business. they did. There's not all all seven right here except in children.

Welcome rarities Actor to it these days. It's a lifestyle business that you want to get into anything cup. Lack of time it is. It isn't in ninth the fact you you know you eat sleep twenty four hours or so you go to bed at night thinking in still today at the. That's been in this my life. There is not one and go. That goes by that. I don't read something about fishing. Watch something about fishing. Talk to somebody about dishing. It happens all the time. Not a day goes by where some aspect of it is in touch in my life. A part of my life in My closest friends are pretty much involved in fishing industry. Right closest friends. Are that sparks your question for me. L. and that's you know i'm kinda way way beginning of this journey. I've got a small family run company but it's in the hunting outdoor space. And you know. My boys are being raised growing up when we work right. We have stuff to do. There's it's a small family run business. it's not you know. Dad goes to work at nine. And we're we're done at five and let's go do x and y but my question is long term for me. My dad took me fishing law. And now i go hunting and now. My boys are in a hunting company being raised. How did you see kind of the transition of with raising these kids. In the company in fending fishing industry they stayed on and continued to fish and still thrive as that was our was that a positive experience for them. Oh yes yeah. Yeah for a number of now. There's some of them that was not. I'll use my to poison example. My oldest son george in here in heat you shared with the. I'll give you my first experience with it. needs he. He was raised in the business. He worked in. It works wade through until they went off to college in it but he was interested in fishing gets his passion in his case. Was things that move fast snowmobiles motorbikes four wheelers dirt bikes. This is what he loved to do. Sounds like we'd get along pretty. Well do troy and the other hand off from the time. He was a little tiny kid. You could see the seat of he would be back in front of our h- house here a day and night catching frogs and just running up and down the bank catching he'd loved it from the time he was four or five years old internet. Never change he absolutely left. And i just think again. God created all slightly different with different interests and is a good thing. You had one boy in the garage tinker on motors and going faster and you had another guy you couldn't keep at the house. He was taking his fishing pole and he was to the water at four and five. Yeah in in in you and your the answer. Paracha half have respect know. I respect that. They have to be their own person in in in seek out for thinks the all that you know that those different interest levels impacted their right as they were growing up in reading some cases to to what they're doing today you know again my son toys into it in a lot of different areas of my oldest son and interestingly he he he liked even as a kid. You're living on the edge. He here you love the excitement of the snowmobile races today. He he'd get so pumped on yet in today. He's he's the paramedic he's a wilderness paramedic in he's fighting fires -fornia loves the game. You're whites. He likes ribbon on the edge to me. I like living on the salary to belated contentment. That's what i really like. And you know. I follow troy on social media and that that guy is always out doing something. And he's. he's an incredible fisherman. I mean it's it's yet it just anything anywhere any way any loves digging around in offbeat places for a coupla. He's got he's got pack whereas in no matter where he goes scurrying rats. He sees the body of water anywhere. Anything they could hold the fish he just drives up insider road. And rodney goes spacious anywhere anywhere crapping around the country with him because spent he's spent some time out west and i know he's fish some areas where i've been and it's just kinda cool to see that and i do want to ask you a question about that. Everybody has some of those favorite moments. What it was like a favorite moment for you fishing with your kids that you can recall the years ago with troy. I'll give you a. I'll give you my my oldest son that never got turned onto it and here's winter. Mistakes that make made with the there was a series the best tournament series. Starting in minnesota zillion years ago it was called the northstar bash turned into and when he was about four years old. I took an pre fishing. Mary and i got a cabin on the lake. And i took him pre fishing for that tournament with me and he had snoopy rag. You had snoopy rag. And they had to wait spinner baits. Then you know it was cool. We're up in the morning out. Who day thinking around. He's dragging this spinner baits through the water. And you know. I'm trying to catch some fish. Internet little said something. It's something from we'll get more moves out to have been great you you you hold in iraq ruled colin. He looks at me. it looks at the rad. He throws looked at me again. I got the message. You burn me out so bad. And so i think there's a balance there were so you know. My dad took me steelhead fishing. And i've i've got quite a few steelhead to my name. And if anybody out there knows steelhead there they can be finicky and tricky fish to catch i. I mean the passion for catching them is kinda gone. I've i've i've been out steelhead fishing and i've seen this in the hunting industry where you know you get some guys. That are pretty. Some prowess in are pretty successful. They take their sixteen seventeen year. Old son out. He shoots a world calibre elk and ten years later. He's he's not in elk cutting he's into fishing or snowmobiling or something else does. Ruggles images of the other side of that story would try. What are the experiences a for a number of years we as a family.

The next year shared all all the time. It's fishing in my unity. Go hand in hand every day. Day is just part of my life. I integrated what we do with the television shows. You know the the impact that it it a try to kind of quickly for you until the time. I was thirty five years old. You know i was a person. It was not an atheist store. Nick knight that nasdaq. I probably would have favored more upper eighty s. And i don't believe anybody that spends any amount of time in the outdoors anywhere can be an atheist. I think that's an impossibility. But i had no really. I was obsessed. And i guess that's the only word i could use obsessed with fisher twenty four seven. That was all that and you know. It gets all in our businesses. Were building at that point in time and At thirty five started giving turkey in my heart to Right to spirit a guy who was just tugging in my heart. I met people that that Turned her life over to the lord. Lord that were hard party hard-drinking people that i knew a hard partier. You know when they were like a different person you night and day and he started to talk to me about about jesus guy stuff i never heard of before the enemy sound comes with a lot of people you gotta understand nothing really new number and then i started the search knowing there's life got you got your busse heart who's much of his life in in one day turned us away lord has given us percents and i says well i i can't do it myself i need help i need your direction. I'm just saying guidance. Any made a confession of faith. Like they're nice and his life and then for about two years you know i wandered around back. Studied the word guide. The bible began challenged thing to me to get through a through know little things like could this really be real. You know like so many people. It's this bible. Could this stuff really. But this this thing is is there a guide the foundation guiding coke. Jesus was the foundation. Is this thing that he really is is. He says he is to be comfortable recently. Said he did from beginning to end. Yeah you know. And i started looking at this stuff. You know one day it got out of my head arc. It was never less years. All i can say is if you truly search is real. He's there you care some words to be. It's a real experience. You know the the point he's got to get out of your head in it. You have become a part of my everyday life. I'm not ashamed for the dash. That's it openly. That's who lamb. And i can only share the experience that i hear. And how would i life. My family My outlook on business. Now look on life right back by relationship with my wife and the older. I get a clearer easier. It is for me out to be more appreciative of of my lord grayson so al. I've got a question. It's a immuno high positive this way in a as starting my own business in the outdoor industry and then walking in faith in how how has that affected you know business decisions and just in a living in the limelight and and outwardly expressing. Your faith is there. You know ever moments of doubt. I mean 'cause i in today's society and day and age is definitely not something that's widely accepted. Are you saying in here by some subject back. But what would you buy. S- i mean as far as just running a business and then walking in faith. I if you look at the marketing partners that i have every single one of a from boat motor rag reels lures lying a wreck. Chronics are the top right at the top of their field in their individual categories. Everyone of and we've been with them for many many many years. Some of them almost my entire career.

I had one of say anything about my confession of faith and that show it all. Most of them have said they appreciated it and go forward and one of the reasons for that is an and some of them are not people but they businesspeople and the bottom line. Is i self stuff for. That's what i still stuff on. I do my job or am i would absolutely. That's why they don't you know so it's it's a only one. Major major challenge would network.

That i didn't pay for the network in europe. Charge them back for all of the pain and misery went back bent. So it's no legal. Nobody called us back. Matt a single thing the legal. Nobody their legal. Nobody never heard from him since well. I'm really glad that you guys you know you. Un ron have have always been good about you. Know talking to people about your faith and it's been a centerpiece of the show and one of the parts of the show. The actually look forward to a bunch is the very end when you go through whatever god lays on your heart and i really just want to say. Thank you for doing that because we need to be able to talk about these things and i. It seems like culture is trying to move in a direction where they don't want you to talk about stuff that might offend somebody. But it's like you know these are things that we should all be talking about. You know if that's part of your life that's an integral piece. You should be able to talk about it. And there's one one thought i have on that. Patrick is to speak to have speech to have thought. You risk being offensive. Right to someone. And i mean if we're just gonna walk around muzzled and mass and never have a conversation about anything i mean. I'm into big game hunting that that can be offensive. Catching fish can be offensive. So we have to push back. We have to go. They'll run over here if you don't get you know and i'm a big thing an immediate business all my life. I'm a big believer a freedom of expression freedom of speech. Even if i don't with it so am i even. If i don't agree with it you still have a right to share. I understand and i respect it. And i think that's something that people need to remember. Is that just because somebody says something. You don't like doesn't mean you have to agree with them. You can just choose not to listen to that person anymore. I mean there's there's stuff that's put out all all the time that i don't listen to and i don't want to be associated with because i don't agree with what their stance is and you know there's plenty of stuff that i do love to watch and listen to that. I do agree with people that disagree whether you should catch fish on spawning beds are not right in an argument about that or you can easily selena when you can easily get there. But but again. I i like i said i. I respect our our freedom speeches. An expression is an important thing. I've been in the media business my life all my life and in people have a right this year that i have i a right. The like to tune into a cheddar offer. Do whatever i want with it not read it. I can exercise my own decisions. I'm not gonna go in there in equality sponsors sponsor them. Because you're doing this dead. I never do. And i think that's something that needs to be heard and i'm glad that somebody i'm sure a few people here it on this podcast but what you said is very true. We don't need you know this. Cancel culture of of things that you know. Ripples need to be able to share and people need to be adults about it and mature enough to handle it and choose what they want to listen to what they don't. I mean that's it's it's really part of the backbone of what what our country was supposed to be about and Were anyway i do to change gears. Just a little A guy that's been really influential in my life on fishing is pat o'grady. I met pat. Oh man that's probably been twelve thirteen years ago. And he was getting his company started. And i jumped in and helped him out with. Pk lures and here. He had told stories about you coming out to wyoming and doing some fishing. I remember reading. In the law. ally wisdom books About seminole and a few things. So i just wondered if you could share a little bit about coming out to wyoming. Western space are so different than northern or ride scary. Yo it's a whole different world and you mentioned to you mentioned alluded earlier when they get used to is. Never any wind ever ending win in. I mean if you go if you're going to fish you better better get used to win. Better not bothering you. The rick the vote right the handle nbc and being a safe piece the piece of equipment. They handle wind in it. I don't know if you guys ever go through three straight days in a row word you calm day never. I don't think lever happen. I go to archery shoots. And i have people say well. I'm not shooting in the wind and they start playing. Oh the winds blow. And i said well you come to wyoming. If you don't shoot or hunt in the wind just don't go hunting joke. Defeat w. t where we go to the code is as an example. You look at the weather report the night before they they say the win the window. We from fifteen to twenty five. It means it's going to be forty plus asu. It'd be forty dollars. Plus that's what you're going to get the truth. Well you talk about seminar. That is one of the windiest places. I think in the lower forty eight. I mean the the wind speeds on that reservoir are ridiculous. But i'll tell you the fishing is phenomenal. How many winter they put around it. Yeah they put a lot of wind turbines that sucker for good reasons but those western reservoirs growth big fish. Hey we're trying to keep that a secret. Al off carp fish is amazing and even some very. I'm a small mountain. i love smart fishing. The small mouth world small mouth. Fishing is as popular as it's become the tournament organizations. That have the come up north and since two small fishing and a great lakes and now they're coming everywhere yet yet you know you get to experience it in tournaments Love it the small mouth. Fishery that exists. West of the mississippi river is still some of the most unexplored smart fishing in north america systems. I can't you're innocent. At west of the river or to western states many of those reservoirs got phenomenal phenomenal. Nominal bishop i. I liked to tell the story. I've told a couple of times there's a. there's a river in oregon. I won't give the name but an all out to you. We drift boat floated at one day. And i hooked sixty small mouth in a day and i got tired of jagan forum. So i put on a mouse pattern. I tied and i caught. You know half a dozen small. He's on a mouse pattern. Just throw it right against the bank and start stripping out and they'd at that river this drift boat only so motorboats in that that can be a lot of fun i mean those are their sparkling out there and some of the some of the bigger systems pick the missouri river as an example for four. You've got set at saf. You've gotta wacky a. These are massive bodies of water massive massive systems and their in in in in there. I mean the small muppet. Nobody hears coast that they won't see an angler in your role year for small. Nobody'll be their four. Pack four pack is one of the most remote fisheries. I've ever been to. And i'll tell you what they're there have got to be miles and miles of shoreline that never get fished and i mean there's massive massive in their own up in way up at that even at the dry air dry air too short that is about what forty i think. That's forty miles long. And then you've got that main arms like one hundred and sixty miles long. There's very few accesses. Oh yeah you know you're right. I remember we had a pw heat from the tournament. They're in what we we got the attention that anisimov parsons weighed in. It was kabaya. They rent way when came to brought the smart in with his bad fish. So we could wait and it was like a six three or six or this. Was that smaller. That miniature scale in your macro swarm are up in san francisco. I couldn't pull about about have to lead. Somebody's somebody structures. Just drive in his crazy ton of them in there. That's an incredible says. I said there there miles up. It is the most untouched massive untouched mama. Fishing attack. the guy goes through not to mention some of the. There's one night and forget. That warned that they bleed. I think they believe their next record. Birsh sure commander there. I can't remember to saturday with no gather some wells. Old anti yeah. There's some fantastic fisheries out here. And i know just in wyoming alone. I mean you've got a number of really good reservoirs for walleye and you know a couple for small mouth that are really significant and a whole bunch that are good for trout of various species. And of course he got flaming gorge with those humongous lake trout. And that's and that's an incredible fishery to we touched on earlier smarter and they've they've kinda taken a dive the they they think that the Burbot that made their way there. Somehow somebody moved burbot down there into that drainage from apparently around this area and They just haven't they haven't done as well they they were doing really well in the early two thousands. I used to go down there with my dad and we'd catch some up to four four and a half pounds and now it's pretty hard to find them. They're still there. They're just not in the quantity that they used to be environmentally. Then yep There's something to be said for that. You know when i grew up steelhead fishing. You'd spend a lot of hours and when you finally hook into one of those thirty forty inch fish. I mean they they take you for a ride for a while but you can fish for two three four days before you even catch one hook one hook up you go small fishing and have those fisher so dang aggressive are fun. It's fun so that's one of the beauty of them. Yeah there's a there's a little reservoir here in wyoming that kicks out you around five pound fish. Pretty regularly And i i went there with a buddy of mine one time and we are fishing. Top water thing between josh. And i we we both got probably fish apiece just fishing little poppers on the surface in it was just a lot of fun and then that thing that you talked about al that happens in wyoming happened in the wind blowing really really hard to get off their old of the gun the boat for your life. Get your your jacket on. Got what. I'll tell you that much we got wet but so what's what's next. What's in the future. What's what's you know. What do you plan on. what's coming up. What are we. Should we be watching for and getting a little long into or the age also slowing down. A little bit i mean jimmy wego muskie fishing me for four hours. I ain't gonna go in our barrett fats or two pound rubber. Big thing can happen. You're only as old as you act. Al see you know strongest kid. My body doesn't want my five. You don't want to receive that. There are things that are wearing down a little think. That's wisdom speaking to abandon. No too so. I i have to pick pick and choose a little bit a little bit more but i still loved the game. I mean know as long as i can contribute that this sport in a positive way. I'm gonna do it. i'm not gonna. i'm not going to quit. I'm not gonna retire up. Going to crack back. And i mean by cutting that i wanna do more fun fishing on the shows. Jimmy jeremy that the staff and other people we work with. I'd like to see troy get a little more involved with this stuff. These guys you pick up the ball and run every night for long enough to fund fish a little bit more by that go do some things and places a lot of bodies of water that i'd like to play around a little bit now for two hundred and a lot of people don't understand that you know when you're going fishing for the weekend without a camera crew that that can be quite pleasurable when you're going filming for an episode that can be you know when you gotta redo takes a redo when you just wanna go explore to make it happen you gotta make. It's working people don't they. They sit in their living rooms and watch that and go. Oh well they were just they. Turn the camera on and went and had a fun time. There's a lot of hours behind the scenes when the cameras work was in. And then there's a year no it's addressing a lot of times a lacking half and on hot fight fetched but then when you dress the show after that. That's when you get the underwater cameras stuff out to fit. That fit the scene where the fisher coming in in to get the right drum shots environment. Those those all add to the editing and make it a little more exciting the music tracks that that go with it. you know. Music is so subtle in you know a lot of shows don't use music because you have to pay Their cost us thirty thousand dollars a year to use a music so yeah bachelor of music track because their royalties and alma my companies right in this is our very first go. My dad and i went she putting this last fall. We hired a cameraman and we took him. And i'm learning very quickly of the shortcomings of we didn't get you know. Be roll. Shot here and this extra shot here and you know getting that underwater shot or that overhead shot that you need in. It's you know it's really hard now to recreate and get those extra shots that we need to produce the film that i wanna purdue so make a real exciting piece you back. That'd be rollers goals man just putting the actual the actual easiest park. It is actually catching deficient getting their artist on films that easy. Then you've everything else is putting it together. It's all better than that anything. Sweetening the more things you have to compliment. Show the better. It becomes the up on where we're struggling. We're stretching it as as as as we can stay but it's fun man fun. It is a lifestyle worth living. Believe me i if you if you could do it. And you find a way to get your niche in their buck doing it your sizzle lifestyle business for a lot of people if you if money is your motivation and you want to get rich. Don't come fishing industry and here's a lifestyle some of us.

God bless you and You know be safe on your travels this year and i look forward to watch and more of the winter media so i appreciate it very pretty opportunities guys everybody habitation. Thanks a lot. So i think we should keep rolling for a minute. We'll wrap this show up and do you have to tell a story about al. I'm really glad he came on the show. In my first and only time that i've al was i cast in twenty eleven and i was working on my laptop and i was up in the las vegas convention center and i was sitting on the side. Which is a huge building enormous. I'm sitting out and kind of of the way trying to find a quiet place. I get wifi and do some work for pat gradient. Pk lure so. I'm working on it. And i see this guy. Come out the come off the stairs. I see that it's outlander. And i'm like oh man that's that's all inter i wanna go say. Hi and say thank you. And so i get up and start to head that way and i kid you not. It was like a stampede. The ground shook. You know the sky got dark. There's all these people just came from every direction and kind of cut me off and you know it was like okay. you know. These guys are more important than me. These our sponsors. You know these are guys that have a vested interest in talking to al. And so i'm like i'll just wait here for a minute. I'm sure clear out. It didn't clear out. The mass massive people just got bigger and bigger and bigger and then that mass move down to where all the booths were. And i was like well. There goes my chance. Shake his hand and say thanks But w quicker next time patrick. Yes but now. He's got to spend an hour talking with him and he's he's a wonderful guy and he's made an impact on my life that you i can only just tell you guys that it meant a lot to me today to be able to talk to him when i was younger. My mom passed away. When i was fourteen and after my mom passed away one of my things that it was kind of an outlet for me was fishing just to get away clear my head get away from life and my dad. I remember one saturday. He took me down to cabela's in sidney nebraska which is about a hundred miles from cheyenne. So he went to sydney. Bought some fishing gear but we also went and we found that they had a rack of in fishman. Vhs tapes and books and so we picked up those things and brought it home. And i mean. I was in those things. Like you wouldn't believe you know on those rough winners of shan that i keep talking about you know with the wind. Cystic crappie fishing. That was there. And i don't mean the fish you know we we would watch those videos. And we'd get amped up for that next trip to the gorge to catch small mouth or that trip that we had that next year where. We just clobbered the ele- perch walleye at poison. So you know those kind of things really mean a lot to me and just al and just the way is just how he has so much. Fun has so much joy around fishing. It's just so inspiring to me and so having him on was a big deal. You know for me today so it was great but i learned that and positively right. Vate faith and fishing is what he said. But you if if you're not having fun in this industry and he really did hit the nail on the head. Yes it's it's nice to be able to get to a point. You could make a living at it. But if you wanna make money go to silicone valley go go go create the next app or whatever the next thing is you make money and live that lifestyle but you know he touched on it. He's been in the industry for longer than about anybody and he still working i. It's it's crazy. He's seventy six years old and he's still going and just definitely an inspiration to a lotta people and one of the things.

"david merrill" Discussed on Scene Of the Crime

"Near spokane. Tracy was over in lincoln county. Lincoln county is not heavily populated the prairie we country there as fast iran into this kid named goldfinch and made him take him to the nearest ranch. They went to a remote ranch. It's between creston in davenport and well off the road in the the sort of scab lands there and there were two men the eddie brothers who ran this ranch and he worked for his key while he was there. He did chores around the ranch. Let the kid go and told the kid you know. You'd better not tell anybody about this. And i think he thought he was somewhat safe out there. The kid got back to town to christian. He called the sheriff in davenport. And said i think i know. We're he traces. Noel tracy was known to be very persuasive and conning and he definitely knew how to use those attributes to his best benefit korea says he thinks there was something more going on here. Well intimidation factor. Too right. I mean you've got a guy that you know as a bonafide killer and he comes to you and says i would like your help. Do you say no. Of course not you know. People are survivors and it was no different than the old west. You know. there's a story about how he he took people hostages just before he killed himself last standoff there. He took these people hostage and they were terrified for their lives. They thought he was gonna kill it. And what did he do while while they were in another room he put them in another room to contemplate their fate and she sat down in either dare his last meal. Harry tracy's bloody exploits would finally be ended august six nineteen o two three days after arriving at that ranch the kid who snuck away and call the sheriff led a posse back and kanoute says they laid in wait. Cornering tracy in a wheatfield. Tracy was spotted them. They spotted him. He had his rifle with him and ran. And there's a big lava rock there that he took cover behind but while he was running he got winged he got shot in the leg and dragged himself into a barley fields and it was getting dark so they didn't want to chase him into the field. They were afraid they know how badly entity was not and then the next morning a bigger posse showed up from davenport and they made their way to the field. They saw trail of blood. And there was harry tracy lying on his side with his rifle and he was dead and they saw that he had been shot in the leg and it bled profusely considered an artery and he tried to it off but the a taken a pistol and shot himself above the. I rather than be taken alive. So you know. He knew he was done for that point. A little bit of an anti-climactic end for our anti hero here. I don't see how it could have ended any other way. I mean you know. I mean he. He wanted to have those confrontations he. But i know it would have been great if if there was a final ending during the shootout but to have their be a shootout and then they left for the night because they didn't know if they had killed him or not that he wanna go traipsing through this wheatfield because they were afraid that he might be laying in wait ready to ambush them again so they brought in another posse the following day and they come and they just find him he's already dead. We see a little bit of anti-climactic. Yeah i mean. I hear what you're saying but i also feel like they were playing it smart like they. Well yeah working at risk anymore. Like ambush by him and they didn't know how badly he was injured and he's pretty hardcore to take his own life. But you know the jig was up it was but there is more to the story first of all you know how legends go says. There are some who question whether it was even harry tracy who is in that field. Here's some some information that his partner and he switched identities that the guy that actually killed himself was not harry tracy so david merrill some think changed his name again to harry tracy of course but So there's some speculation it was actually david. Merrill was the one hunting the cops who was the one hiding out for that last month or so. After the dual there are some who believe that was. David merrill ages totally. Don't buy that. Because david merrill earlier in the story rolled on harry immediately when he got busted. So there's no way he would have been like. Hey hey hey. I'm not harry tracy. I'm he had the same reward out for him dead or alive as well. It wouldn't have mattered to law enforcement. Whether it was david miller harry tracy they would have probably taken the same action but i feel like david was less hardcore than harry and that he would have been like i. Maybe there's just you think that he's less hardcore because he actually started his crimes before. Harry tracy did well because he was willing to give up his partner with law enforcement. You know that's when they when they were in the portland area. And i believe that harry based on what you've said that harry just killed him. You know ambushed him because that's his style seems like and he just killed him. So harry was a better cook than dave. And i just feel like he would have been david. I feel like he would have been. We're on first name basis. Unless unless david realized how psychotic carey was and that he had just gone too far and and decided to see to ambush him and kill him and take his name. I know but why would you wanna take the name of this. This outlaw joe. I that's what i would do. You know good boys. Whoever it was who died. The story of harry tracy had become larger than life. Turn of the century. True crime fans wanted to get their hands on a little piece of that legendary outlaw. When harry tracy was dead in davenport souvenir hunters broke into the funeral parlor and ripped off his clothes and tore out clumps of his hair and you know sought any physical souvenir they could get pictures. Were taken of course. Of course well. They also made a wax cast of his face and then poured plaster into that. And so there is a harry. Tracy's head you can see the bullet in the forehead and you know his mustache and whatnot is in this white plaster bust and i asked the stoorikhel society. I said you know where. Where did you get this. And they said well it was. It was in a local. I think it was a pharmacist. Ended up with it and he had it in kind of a collection of memorabilia and you know but then one day came over to the historical society and said hey you want for your collection you know. This is what. I was trying to say earlier about not being so far removed from this history. It's really not that long ago. I mean i actually grew up in a time in tacoma i. I don't know if you've heard this is like way off track. But it keep up with me here ivan that guerrilla that i've in the gorilla. He was before my time. But i've when. I was a very very little. I remember going to that hardware store and i was like and for people who don't know ivan was a real guerrilla who was kept at a hardware store for what just kids to look at how people would come shot and i remember feeling like why is this gorilla in this. I mean it had such a huge effect on me back even before this book came out and i was like. Oh my gosh. I was wondering. Did that even happen. Like you know as a kid because it just seems so weird that that's guerrilla would be in this hardware store but the point is is that somebody having this. This cast in some pharmacy like it seems like oh i can see it in yield curiosity shop in downtown seattle. But it's like it really wasn't that long ago and human beings with the pulling of the hair and we we kind of the look on your face. And i felt like i had that same reaction when that is so gross. Because we feel like we're so far removed from death and.

"Could hop around more easily. First of all kanoute is like a seattle gem if you have an opportunity to go back and read some of his features in stories. It's like talk about bringing the english language to life in the history of the pacific northwest to light to life. But you know it's funny. We think about the riding the rails and the hobo class. And i was talking to my mom about her dad and apparently his parents came over from ireland so he would ride the rails and this is like back in the depression. I mean wasn't that long ago that people and they weren't just you know quote unquote hobos. Just people from all different classes like. Hey let's i want to go and check out this place. I'm going to ride the rails you know and so it's interesting how much we've actually changed in such a short amount of time. It's just kind of interesting. Yeah well. Harry was known to run with the likes of butch cassidy and is hole in the wall. Gang the hole in the wall gang. By the way it's it's not like one big organized gang of outlaws but it was actually made up of a bunch of separate groups that all operated out of an area that was called hole in the wall pass food. where was the whole name wyoming it. It kind of reminds me of like a commune for criminals. The gangs would carry out their own escapades but then at times they would have members of one game that might ride with another gang and they would meet up occasionally back this hideout but only like if they happen to be there at the same time. It wasn't really like a planned thing and the hideout wasn't just a single saloon or a hotel but they had a corral for all of their horses and sometimes cattle they would bring back. There were a number of cabins that were scattered around and they had even established camp rules. Like you're not allowed to steal from anybody else in camp and they had a protocol for handling internal disputes amongst the outlaws. Just like a motorcycle gang. Kind of like totally. The voters cycling before the motorcyclists right hog. They had a horse. When harry severin's really started embracing his outlaw ways and running with the hole in the wall. gang he also changed his name to harry. Tracy thomas korea's the author of the book the american cowboy chronicles old west myths and legends. The honest truth he also has a blog. The american cowboy chronicles. He says name change was pretty common for criminals who wanted to skirt the law back then. One of the things that they did in the old west in the eighteen hundreds. We have some hard time doing today. And that is you can rewrite your history. That's one reason why people came. West wanted to rewrite your lives. If they were in trouble in the east he put it behind. If they were just a cog in the machine and they really wanted to get ahead. I came less than they could strike it. Rich homestead act. I mean you name it. They had the opportunity was there and the other thing is. Let's say you were a criminal back. East come west change name. Nobody knows we. There was no internet. There were no background checks. We know of lawmen who were criminals in one state and laminant another. We know this. I mean this is just fact like wyatt. Urp and wild bill hickok. They both were notorious outlaws but later in life became lawmen. But in harry tracy's case there was no second chapter from his early days up until his last korea says tracy was the devil in human form. There's a story that. I was told about his family whether it was an aunt or whatever. Starting up brothel in kansas and bringing him out to help. As a enforcer in the brothel. I've been told by some sources that that was his initial entry into the west and from there migrated to the north west as far as his desire to basically take shortcut. And go with the outlaw ways. I think has everything to do with this indoctrination coming in the brothels in all your basically if you're shown the shortcuts immediately than i think that's what he thought was the way to go tracy's first known. Murder was committed in march of eighteen. Ninety eight when he was about twenty four years old tracy and three other cattle wrestlers got into a shootout with a rancher in colorado. That rancher also happened to be a member of the local posse and he was shot to death so now not only were tracy and his partners wanted for cattle rustling and murder but for the murder of a law man the local sheriff in every able bodied man. He could find join a posse. That would search for them and it wasn't long before they caught up with tracy and his partner in crime who will wind up sticking with him for quite some time from here on out. David merrill the law caught up with them and route county. Colorado merrill actually grew up in vancouver washington according to a newspaper report from nineteen o two. He was born david. Robinson had a sister named molly he first started living. The outlaw life in the eighteen eighty s and actually escaped from the clark county jail in eighteen eighty seven. It was more than ten years later. After he had changed his name to david merrill that he was caught rustling cattle with tracy and they were locked up in the route county jail but that little local jail just couldn't hold them within a matter of weeks. The pair busted out and that kicked off a two year crime spree. That took them back to my old stomping grounds on the west coast. And what can you burger describes. As the last of the wild frontier zig northwest was settled late in the game. Relatively speaking you know in the washington territory was large. It was prior to statehood and prior to idaho being carved off in the eighteen sixties. Washington territory consisted of washington. Idaho western montana in even part of wyoming. So there was this huge territory and many of the stories that we kind of think of the old west occurred in this vast region. And i think it was a place that there. There were a lot of work for field laborers. We were sort of a wash in men minors yet. Cannery workers fishermen loggers railroad builders story. And i talked to once referred to insert of the golden age of manual labor. And of course this led to all kinds of things. One of which was many of the cities were sort of built in this. You know we're frontier tons where these workers would come to town with their pockets full of money and spend it and they wanted to gamble or visit. Brothels dens of equity in that kind of thing as seattle was the largest and last great deadwood of that period that lasted into the early twentieth century. It's so interesting as we're kind of peeling back the layers of this story about the morality compass like he mentioned deadwood. And there's a character in that series called swear injure. It's like funny because he such bad guy but he's also a good guy and you kind of root for him. And i think that these times were so different than they are today where you could be a bad.

"You for hillsdale dot com and they begin in prehistory and they extend to the present day is in fact to this weekend tomorrow, infact at 5 P.m. President Donald Trump will come out in the Rose Garden, accompanied by one of five women. Jamie Cockney Barrett of the United States Court of Appeals for the seventh Circuit Judge Joan Larsen of United States Court of Appeals for the sixth Circuit End of Michigan Judge Barbara Logo of the United States Court of Appeals for the 11th circuit in Florida. Or Judge Alison rushing of the States Court of Appeals for the fourth Circuit and North Carolina or deputy counsel to the president, Kate Todd. And I do not know where moves Todd is from those you president lives in Virginia. Dr Arden. Do you know any of these would be nominees on the short list? Well, I have a correspondence with Amy Barrett and a lot of people here know her. She was scheduled to be our commencement speaker last year and that was disrupted. And that she couldn't make all those. She tried to actually move Family re union to meet the day when we did do it in the middle of July, so we didn't get her, but she's still on our list, and she's highly thought of around here. And she's Ah, You know, I I she She has two things one is looking for. She has Serious my legal mind because you know they navigate through that. You know, for years. With all the elite places fading you and trying to influence you. You need a really great mind. And you know, I think my favorite judges these days. Clarence Thomas. And that's for eternity. And Sam Alito is just you know, but they both Have their firm right? They can handle any questions. So that brings the second thing and that is A sense of deep conviction. To the law, which is rooted In a conviction in a conviction in eternal things, and you know Amy Barrett famously a Catholic, and that's been controversial because Diane Feinstein attacked her for him. Richard Durban, a Catholic, added Maisy Hirono, as did Reuters this week, as have many, many people, including a Catholic theologian at Villanova yesterday. You know, I see that. That's fine by me. It's better than fine by me. If is long, you know, I had a reason. So Bill Bar you know I had We talked about it last week, and it's just so impressive with him that he's explained his commitment to the law. And his commitment in law is built on his commitment to God. He understands that those commitments are different things. Yes, that you know, The Constitution in the Bible are not the same thing. But whatever requires him to obey the ultimate power. Requires him to obey a subordinate power that operates in a different realm. And that that's what I mean. I mean to put all that together, right? So you're not just Justin over the falls in a canoe. You have some ballast, and so I looked for that and In these people. No doctor. It has been said to me. The joke is now about abroad. What do you get when you have seven Catholics and two Jews go into a bar. An informal gathering of the Supreme Court because justice Gorsuch known Anglican was raised as a Catholic and you can take the Catholic You can take the boy out of the Catholic school. But you can't really take the Catholic school out of the boy. And so the joke is seven to what happened to all the Protestants and agnostics. It doesn't alarm me in the least. Although the appearance of it is unusual, what say you if in fact it's Amy Cockney Barrel or Barbara logo? It will be six. One and two, and in fact seven Catholic educated justices and two Jewish justices. Yeah, well, I'm a s. So you know, I haven't experienced about that right first. Well, I personally about Anglican, which is the Catholic fellow traveler. Like the Pope Francis, but well, well, and I do so very much like John, Paul and Benedict. I read Read them a lot. They're worth reading. Anyway as I have there, but the second thing is Our college, which is, you know, seriously Christian. Is mixed up Catholic and Protestant. And that it could be unique. You know, it's it's probably 65 35. It might be 60 40. In favor of the Protestants. And the Catholic kids. You know, last night my great student David Morales, who clerked for Thomas and has just left the Justice Department and big job was over here, and he's a big Kathy to convert. And that the Catholics who live behind my house there, the Catholic houses behind my house. They broke into town into song and David Merrill looked up and I said, Yeah, can't like someone go tell him to shut up. So what? David's we've known each other long. I've known him since he was cause you, California boy, and I knew him in Claremont. His father is just a just a retiring California State Senator may be the last good one Catholic and Catholics can't saying this is the funny one As we speak. Archbishop champion was listening and he gets mad at me when I say things like that, But Catholics can't sing. I have been dumb ass 5000 times and they can't sing. The men don't try and they cannot sing so that you have the Catholics that can sing. Gathered at Hillsdale is actually kind of unusual. We have this beautiful chapel, right? I mean, it's the most beautiful chapel built in decades, and it was built by the Great Dragon Strike. Catholic. And I kept trying to get him to get the town system. Right, right. And, you know, Well, you know the in a building like this spoken word will struggle, And I said it will not Right. Finally, I got frustrated. He's you know, one of the greatest architects alive and he's really great needed a favorite stops. I say all that, but also I said, is it You can't think I don't know how to put on a show. What? Well, you know, I mean, when I travel, I go to Catholic math, usually because you can usually find an Anglican church. The Catholic Mass is relatively safe. And and, you know, I don't mean to besmirch your faith. But your services are a little sloppy. You need to go to the high Latin mass overseen by Archbishop Corner Leone of San Francisco, which I attended up in Napa Valley, which may still be going on. For all I know it was four years ago, and so if you just got to pick your church, Yeah. Oh, and Agnes and sent pole I've been there and they have Latin mass. And they have elements of the Minnesota Orchestra and choir. You know, they do. Haydn and Mozart and Bach masses. You just have to pick your church. Yeah, let's get back to the judges. Judge Barrett. Do you know Judge Larson? She is a Michiganders and I wrote favorably about her in the Washington Post because If they're all the same on doctrinal matters, meeting originalist and faithful to the process, though not to any particular result. Then I wouldn't mind a political advantage in the nominee, and there is a political advantage in incurring favour with the people from the state up north in which he resides and so I like her. Do you know of her?.

"Visiting Arizona president trump admitted to ABC's David Merrill last night that opening the economy up means more deaths recovered nineteen it's possible there will be some because you won't be locked into an apartment or a house Senate put some people at greater risk of contracting covert nineteen and even if they don't get sick from it they still may pass that on to others who will so you have to weigh that against the continued loss of jobs and deaths that will happen because of lock downs and I'll get to that in a second yes decibel happen because of lockdowns but I I think that's because I think the president is right when he talks about the loss of lives it is due to the isolation the people are feeling because of the terrible financial position that to stay at home orders have put on so many families people are dying the other way too when you look at what's happened with drugs he goes up when you look at suicides are me take a look at what's going on people losing their jobs we have to bring it back and that's what we're doing so there's no perfect answers here and that is really apparent from some new modeling that's been done at the university of Pennsylvania of these models or models right okay but they wait covert nineteen deaths in America against the loss of jobs and does through a does so through three different scenarios so let me run through the scenarios for a model number one predicts that if each state maintained its locked down which is not gonna happen by the way because some states have already started to move away from lockdowns so if you can maintain a lock downs the U. S. would have more than a hundred and sixteen thousand deaths and the loss of more than eighteen and a half million jobs by the end of June model number two predicts that if each state fully reopens next week with current social distancing measures the death rate would sort of almost three hundred fifty thousand three hundred fifty thousand deaths but the loss of only a half million jobs and model number three predicts that if states have a partial re opening where states lifts a whole mortars and school closures that would result in one hundred sixty one thousand deaths and the loss of eleven million jobs so basically I call it a happy medium well there's no there's no happy in any of them absolutely not so you maintain the lockdowns you get a hundred and sixteen thousand deaths you lose eighteen and a half million jobs you're fully reopen you get three hundred fifty thousand deaths the only lose half million jobs and if you have a partial re opening you get a hundred and sixty one thousand deaths and you lose eleven million jobs no good answers here right but I I also think we should continue to try and find answers and that's why I find a little puzzling that are TV partners over ABC fifteen are reporting that the department of health services here in Arizona has told a team of university experts to stop early's pause their modeling so our modeling for Arizona is been put on pause at least the modeling that's done by the universities here in Arizona there still are apparently going to have the FEMA modeling and that's what we're going to rely on and and the reason that they're going to really gonna make sure that this pauses here in Arizona is the modeling done by university of Arizona and ASU is because states gonna stop sharing some of the information with them so I don't know if it's a good time to do that right now maybe the female ones have proven to be more accurate it is six forty eight now a K..

I'm 6'4 and Devilishly Handsome - Trong Nguyen

"This is true among knowing with more than twenty years of experience in sales. I honed my craft at Digital Equipment Corporation now HP IBM Dell and Microsoft and currently work with service. Now I've actually been on Scott's podcast twice first in episode, twenty five. And again, in episode forty, six. I've also been to books of my own winning the cloud and winning the Bank here. Story number fourteen. I'm six foot four and devil Schlei handsome by trong, knowing. When you talk to sales managers or the BP of sales, they always ask the same questions. Do you have relationships with the six? So what's your relationship with the excel? How can you close that deal without the support. These questions are not wrong. I just don't think they're very helpful if they just pivot a little bit, the whole conversation changes. What I would ask is, how can we develop relationships with the? So when you start asking that question. It invariably lends itself to deeper thought an introspection. Most sales reps tick a very binary protest to relationships they are on or off the either had these relationships, or they don't, at least in their minds. Invariably, this perspective leads them down a leaner proto dressing the issue at hand, if they don't have a relationship with the, so then they go out of their way to build that relationship directly did bite the six, oh, to social events dinners and whatever else they can in the hopes that these Bonnie moments will lead to future sales. Dereck strategies are useful in certain situations, but not all of them. I would submit that there may be better ways to build these executive relationships instead of going at it head on. I want to provide you with a framework in which to think about how you can develop an influence your relationships. This framework is applicable in your personal life as well as your business life. It's applicable whether you are a customer facing sales Representative, or if you work function is internal facing. In the nineteenth sixties, industrial psychologist, David Merrill and Roger read, didn't extensive study around the dimensions of assertiveness and responsiveness from that study. They came up with a two by two matrix outlining four social styles, analytical driving expressive. An amiable when I read the study, I wept for days. I was overcome with joy, forget SpaceX or tesla. This revelation was akin to Elon Musk, harnessing his brilliance in physics engineering, to find a way of creating hickory, smoked bacon out of thin air. Here's the practical application of this theory. Step one, perform a personality analysis on the six, oh, senior executive, or any person you want to build a relationship with and then place them in one of the four quadrants step to then look at all the people that influence that person, performance personality, Nells on those people and place them in the appropriate quadrants. Step three. Now, think about all the people that influenced the people that influenced the client, do a personnel analysis on those people and place them into the right quadrants. Step four, complete a relationship, alignment, exercise, find the right people in your organization to connect to all of those people. You have dented and start building up those relationships. Here's the execution of the process in its visual form. There's an image here in the print or e book version of the book that you can find at topped one FM audience. What's all in one word. Over time. What you have essentially done is executed complete surround strategy. The main reason why the strategy works is that you are not dependent on one person for success or failure in
