"Failure is what drives us." - John Hunter

John Hunter is among the best anglers in the world. Having recently finished at the top of one tournament, he turned around to have what he self described to me as an awful showing at the next. But he knows those failures make him stronger. This show might be with a bass fisherman, but we barely talk the act fishing. It’s about John’s failures, and how they drive his success.

You don’t need to know a thing about fishing to walk away from my talk with John feeling inspired and motivated. It’s amazing to hear about his lifestyle and schedule. It leaves you wondering how in the world he can keep up the pace.

The only answer I have for you? John is ever restless.

Tracking outdoor activities is incredibly fun and rewarding. You already knew you worked hard—you could feel the burn. But how cool is it to know you also climbed 2,100 feet of elevation, your max heart rate was 183, max ambient air temperature was 84º, your average cadence was 37 strides per minute and the total distance was 8.1 miles?

Microwaving Your Wild Game Meat
Microwaving Your Wild Game Meat

May 28, 2020

When thinking of how to prepare wild game I often think of the iconic scene from Forrest Gump where Bubba is explaining all the methods to prepare shrimp… fried shrimp, shrimp kabobs, shrimp gumbo, etc. Venison and most game meats are highly versatile, and are consumed in countless dishes and cuisines from around the world. You may now be thinking, “Fried deer, elk burgers, goose kabobs”… the list goes on forever. Each wild meal I prepare is a chance to extract the most out of whatever cut of meat I am preparing, combining those rich flavors with quality, seasonal ingredients to create a mouthwatering and delicious meal for my family and friends.
