"There are no sacred cows here. Do you care about preserving a memory, or do you care about preserving a lifestyle?"
— Buck Robinson
I met Buck Robinson very early into my journey with GoWild. We're both entrepreneurs, but he's a few years ahead of our team with GoWild in our journey. I've admired him and his team's ability to scale and bring their vision to life.
Team GoWild fully believes in what Buck is doing. You've heard it before—access is one of the toughest challenges for hunters. Outdoor Access not only solves for that in a way that's extremely affordable for outdoorsmen, it's benefiting the land owners, too. It's not all peaches and cream, though. Buck outlines his growing pains, too.
Buck and I will discuss the reason we were together—the R3 Conference. We'll share our criticism of the effort, along with what we found hopeful. We talk through an interesting way to get new people outside for the first time, and you might just already have it in your closet.
Buck is a great, hilarious dude. I had a great time chatting with him. I'll leave you with this:
"Hunting isn't about something dying. It's about something living, within you." - Buck

In addition to its robust Garmin integration, GoWild has added activity tracking support for Apple Watches, Google Wear OS Watches and an expansive list of other devices.
With the integration, members can track and share their outdoor adventures on a dynamic timeline, highlighting information such as mileage, average heart rate, elevation changes, temperature and much more. Activities are shared on an anonymized map, hiding the actual location of the activity and limiting zoom so member’s secret spots are kept that way.
