Restless Native: Lincoln Tapp, Bowhunter, TV Show Host & Teenager

July 17, 2018

“You can’t blame hunters for the creation of humans.”
— Lincoln Tapp

Lincoln Tapp has become pretty well known within the hunting community. He’s currently chasing a goal that’s almost synonymous with his name. He’s spent a third of his life traveling across North America in an attempt to become the youngest person to harvest 29 of North America’s Big Game Animals.

At 12 years old, Lincoln became the youngest known archer to harvest the Stone Sheep. He checked another box at 14 when he became the youngest archer to harvest the Super 10 of North American Big Game, and he also completed his archery Grand Slam with the Four North American Wild Sheep, which means he harvested Dall’s, Stone’s Sheep, Rocky Mountain Bighorn and Desert Bighorn sheep.

Lincoln is also the host of “YoungWild” which you can find on the Outdoor Channel.

I think about how young he is, and I'm so impressed and optimistic. This isn't your typical celebrity. This is a guy whose peers are thinking of prom dates and their first cars. So if we slow down and realize how far ahead he is from a typical person his age, he feels 20 years ahead of his time. 

This is a great conversation with a young man I'm now proud to know. I hope you enjoy. 

Check out Lincoln's TV show.

Don't miss National Conservation Week.

This episode is brought to you by Houston Safari Club Foundation

This episode of Restless Native is brought to you by Houston Safari Club Foundation. GoWild is working with Houston Safari Club Foundation, and you know about some of the conservation efforts this group participates in.

This is an amazing organization, that is not only funding conservation efforts, they’re helping kids further their education, learn how to get outdoors and actively tackle R3 efforts.

Houston Safari Club Foundation has put $2.1 million into scholarships for hunters. That is, they are paying for scholarships to kids who are proven outdoors enthusiasts with hunting backgrounds. These are future decision makers and educators. They tackle Hunter Recruitment first hand with outdoor programs that have introduced hundreds of students to hunting experiences and career opportunities.

Houston Safari Club Foundation has also provided $3.5 million in hunter-funded programs for habitat and wildlife improvements, anti-poaching and outdoor education.

Members can connect with individuals from diverse fields, sharing a passion for hunting. Go back and listen to Joe’s interview if you missed it—he talks about all kinds of amazing events they host for these efforts.  

Members also enjoy an active community, with monthly events and of course, the annual convention where members gather to socialize and share experiences.
