    On this episode of Huntavore, Nick recalls his adventure for archery elk with his hunting buddy, Brock Dean. Together they tell their reactions to a week of super highs and deep woes; close enounters, and hellacious climbs, and what helped them to have really good success as greenhorn western elk hunters. Not a lot of animals died, but a couple get real close, on this episode of Huntavore.Nick is joined by good friend, Brock Dean. Brock, AKA: The Former PLW, public land warrior. Brock and Nick along with two other buds, headed to Montana. They took their chance on a DIY archery hunt with General Elk tags. The week-long hint started with a 24 hour straight through drive. After hitting their campsite and prepping their gear, the 4 some made their first novice move and climbed straight up a face of the mountain without really understanding what their objective was. To their surprise they did happen to hear elk bugles, which gave them some confidence, and started their plan for the next day. Nick and Brock both agreed that our heads were in the right place, while maybe our bodies were not. Very positive going in, knew that the “slog” was worth the effort, continual planning and making audibles kept putting the guys in spots to catch elk. In fact, the group finding a closed ATV trail helped in getting up the mountain and to areas that otherwise would be out of their reach. While even the trail was in bad shape, it was better than thick timber and no switchbacks.The group also found themselves at the top of bowl with little to no access, other than from the top. This became a sweet spot and location of several very close encounters. One being a huge bull in the timber, another being a spike bull feet from Nick, and finally the dramatic tale of Brock taking an uphill shot on a nice bull that ultimately ended unsuccessful. Overall with what they had accomplished, the adventure of it all, lessons learned, and how close they were to animals, they deemed this a successful trip. Let's just call it, unfinished business.Tappecue Meat ProbesInstagram: @tappecueWebsite: https://bit.ly/2NIr0XjCoupon Code 10% off: HUNT10

Rick has a passion for wildgame, growing up in the U.P. of Michigan, Rick has fond memories of bringing in deer to the family garage and working together to create the amazing dishes of his yesteryears, like his grandma's potato sausage. Rick also goes into how hunting and venison has impacted the design of his products, helping them be more effective for the hunter's kitchen. If meat means more to you than just a fuel source, then this is your episode. Settle on in for a nostalgia filled episode of Huntavore.Rick Casey is a problem solver. He sees products and notices changes that can be made to make them better. He has turned this trait into successful businesses. So when Rick had the chance to improve meat processing equipment, he fell back on his upbringing. Holidays in the U.P. , cutting venison with his family. What worked? What did he wish was changed back then? How could I improve the process of bringing wild game to my family's table? Through this Rick has improved many of his CHARD Products.https://linktr.ee/chardproductsIn our chat, Rick was so open about how much food means to him. Taking the time to not only sell a product hunters could use and be content with mediocre, Rick had to tinker and think about how he used poorly designed products before, and fix those quirks. Even if it was widen the legs to make it more stable, or using steel gears instead of plastic for a more robust build. These are changes that can help hunters step up their processing game. Ricks idea of making processing and cooking your wildgame is what he called closing the circle. So much effort is given preparing, executing, and finishing the hunt.

    This week on the Missouri Woods & Water podcast, with the return of Andy, we get to sit down with Tracy Breen and talk about hunting on a budget.  Tracy has been an outdoor writer and marketing consultant in the outdoor industry for over 20 years and became a pro, especially in his younger days, at learning how to pull off hunts he wanted to go on while on a tight budget.  To start the show off, Tracy floors us by telling us about something he does that we have never heard of; turkey hunting with dogs.  Then we get into things like skimping on food, over indulging on footwear, and the importance of a pack.  We also get into the importance of clothes, which transitions us into a conversation about Hunworth and their new Heat Boost line of cold weather gear.  Tracy has perfected the art of hunting on a budget to the point that he actually wrote a book about it.  It is titled "Big Game On A Budget."  Check it out on his website www.tracybreen.com.  Thanks for listening!     Check out the MO Woods & Water Linktree for show and partner links Huntworth Gear:  Use code MWW15 for 15% offMidwest Gun Works:  Use code MWW5 for 5% offCuddeback:  Use code MOWW22 for 10% offRivers Edge Treestands:  Use code Missouri10 for 10% off plus free shipping on Hang-Ons and Ladder StandsLucky BuckOnX:  Use code MWW20 for 20% off CamofireBlack Ovis:  Use code MWW10 for 10% off

    On this episode of Huntavore, pressure builds as season openers draw near, and Nick is presented with an opportunity to hunt elk in Montana.  The combination of exciting new experiences along with adventure in a brand new environment builds a pressure of anxiousness, nervousness and excitement.  Speaking of pressure, One of Nick's tasks this week is to turn heavily worked venison cuts into easy bags of shredded goodness that can help with midweek meal prep.  Seal up those valves, pressure is about to build on this episode of Huntavore.With 13 days left (at the time of this recording) before a group a hunting buddies and myself head out to Montana.  This will be a lot of firsts for me; first hunt out of state, first hunt for elk, first hunt from a truck/backpack.  Even with all the preparations and training, and conditioning I feel the pressure of the unknown.  It's an exciting pressure, thrill of adventure, yet the daunting thoughts of what's next, and what should I expect are ever present.  (Side note). After I recorded this, a practice session with the bow helped my anxiety.Along with returning safely, I'm ok with either outcome; no elk, amazing backpacking trip, or we get elk and bring home glorious meat.Now to bring things back around to meat.  One of Nick's tasks is to prepare a batch of shredded venison that can be used in the months ahead.  Loading up the instapot and seasoning with salt, pepper, and garlic will produce a great tasting base shredded veni, for a whole number of dishes. Vac these into 1lb bags and back to the freezer.  Because they are cooked and packed with the drippings makes for a quick warm up final add of seasoning toward whatever you want to make.A dish that I will do in my enameled dutch oven will be Hank's Veni Barbacoa, recipe here:https://honest-food.net/barbacoa-recipe-venison/ Tappecue Meat ProbesInstagram: @tappecueWebsite: https://bit.ly/2NIr0XjCoupon Code 10% off: HUNT10

    To describe Asa Briggs, it would have to be unassuming. His accomplishments do not reflect in his character. He is a quiet guy that doesn't draw a lot of attention to himself when he is at an event until he turns a hound loose. People, when asked, describe as “always packing a nice dog” or “if he shows up at an event he has a real chance of winning”. Houndsman XP host, Chris Powell traveled to north central Michigan and had a chat with Asa about hounds, competition coonhunting, bobcat hunting and hall of fame dogs. Asa shared a bit about his breeding philosophies and preparation for big events. Listeners will get a real treat to hear from this Xtreme Performance Houndsman.SPONSORS:Cajun LightsHavoc Hunting SupplyGo WildOld South Dog BoxesJoy Dog FoodBriar Creek KenneldogsRtreedFreedom HuntersRough Cut Company
