10 Reasons Why Hunters And Fishermen Are Already Pro’s At “Social Distancing”

During the COVID-19 crisis it occurred to me that we, as hunters and fishermen, are already experts at social distancing.

Here in Wisconsin we have a “Safer at Home” order. Very different than a “Stay at Home” or “lockdown” order. We are still allowed to participate in outdoor activities as long as we follow regulations.

One could certainly argue that we are more “at Home” in the woods or on the water.

A Hail Mary Kansas Turkey Hunt – Grand Osage

Since I didn’t get a turkey this year I thought I’d share the story of my all time favorite turkey hunt. I originally posted a shortened version on the Kansas Travel Blog “My Kansas Turkey Hunt: The Belly Crawl and The Train“.

It was a media event hosted by the Association of Great Lakes Outdoor Writers in Parson, Kansas.

We’d drawn a permit to hunt the Grand Osage Wildlife Area,  which used to be part of the Kansas Army Ammunition Plant. It was interesting to see the abandoned train cars and defunct munition factories. Continue reading A Hail Mary Kansas Turkey Hunt – Grand Osage

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

(Psst! Support the show by sharing this episode to facebook/twitter – thank you!!)

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.
