#HuntFishTravel 179 – Jana Waller, Alaska Moose Hunt and Working in the Hunting Industry

Jana Waller stops by to give me the low down on her Alaskan moose hunt, how they had to rent horse, but the wrangler couldn’t come get them after they’d filled their tags so they decided to hoof it out!

She gives us some packing tips and why (as a fellow Milwaukee-an) the dread of crypto is real in the back country.

And then we talk candidly about working in the outdoor industry and all it’s quirks.

Check out Jana’s show on the Sportsman Channel and be sure to find her on all the social media platforms by searching “SkullBoundTV”.

Carrie Zylka’s 2017 February Wrap Up

February was a short month but it felt like a really long one. The month kicked off with the 5th annual Women on Winnebago Media Event. Every year the Fond du Lac Visitor’s Bureau hosts a handful of outdoor communicators for Wisconsin’s Sturgeon Spearing season. This year we had friends from out of state join us which made it more fun. If you’re on Twitter/Instagram/Facebook you can search for #SturgeonSpearing and #ss2017 hashtags to see several of our posts and photos.

I am working on a full article and some videos to post this month. So be sure to subscribe here to receive notifications of when I publish them.
