Episode 26 Kijiji for Guns

17Jan

A transplant to Southern Alberta, Andre Perrault was dissatisfied with online options for buying and selling firearms.  Most social media sites don't Allow it, so he made his own site. www.GunPost.ca  

Andre is an avid shooter, hunter, as well as a traditional bowhunter.  Our conversation ran the gamut from hand loading, to hunting with a recurve bow, and various different traditional archery techniques, back to the ever popular topic of the 6.5 Creedmore.

Andre's a real interesting guy who has created a free service that will benefit anyone looking to buy or sell hunting gear, archery tackle, and of course firearms.

We hope you enjoy this episode and go check out www.Gunpost.ca

Episode 25 A chat with Randy Newberg, Honorary Canadian

10Jan

As if humming the original Hockey Night In Canada Theme song isn't enough to qualify this US based leader of the DIY, public land western hunting scene as a honorary Canadian, he hits us with a Beachcombers reference!

Mike and John had the good fortune to have a conversation with the host of one of tv's most watched hunting shows.

Besides his tv show, Randy has a popular podcast:  Randy Newberg Unfiltered, and also runs a hunting forum called Hunt Talk.

If you've never heard of Randy Newberg, set aside a couple of weeks to catch up on his instructional media.  Topics such as the gutless method of field dressing, his "pack dumps" and the seasons of the elk year.

He has produced some of the best info for newer westen hunters, hunting public lands, and he shares his insights with us on topics such as gear, rifle calibres and marksmanship, packs, clothing, optics, and so much more.

This episode is a recap of our recent week long sheep hunt.  Fat tire pedal assist bikes got us the three hour ride deep into Alberta Bighorn Sheep country.  Into a place we named the fertile valley.  We got 10" of snow, we were soaked at times, our water tasted of campfire, we climbed big slopes, and we saw Rams almost daily.  Join us while we recount what worked, what didn't, and what we will do next time.

Episode 17 Animal Down, Now What? Be Good To Your Meat

17Sep

It's that time of year when our listeners will start harvesting their wild meat.

Whether you'll be processing your own, or hiring a butcher, you need to know what to do in the field and at home.

With this in mind, we sought out the counsel of a local pro, Chris Rivest.  Chris is a professional butcher, a hunter, a YouTube Chef, a foodie, podcaster and broadcaster, and an all around renaissance man.

Chris, Mike, and John talk about field care, your options on how to process wild game, and the process of getting your kill from field to table.  Chris tells some great stories and sheds some light on the finer ways to consume wild game.

For all you listeners who want to share your stories of a successful harvest, send them to us.  We'd love to hear them.  As always email us at highlanderhuntingpodcast@gmail.com.
