South Cox (Stalker Stickbows)

por Kifaru International

On a stellar episode today Aron and Frank are joined by the great South Cox, they dive right many topics. Ranging from the essential skills needed to be successful when hunting high country Mule Deer to a run down of what's new with Stalker Stickbows.

You won't want to miss this information packed episode with one of the pioneers of shooting and making traditional bows!

South Cox’s interest in archery started at the age of five when he found an old wood recurve under a neighbor’s house. Despite having no mentor and growing up in a vegetarian family during his younger years, the instincts of the hunter ran deep. At 16, he shot his first deer with a bow—cementing a lifetime commitment to the sport.

In 2007, with 20 years of professional woodworking experience, South took over Stalker Recurves, reviving a company that had been dormant for the better part of a decade. Combining both of his passions; a profound love of woodworking and archery, he enthusiastically dove into the new venture. His keen eye for detail and diligent work ethic can easily be recognized in the artistic changes, additions and technical advances in the bow lines.

In 1989, South’s first bowhunting article was published, spawning a new career that would eventually have him published in a half dozen different archery magazines, contributing to a couple of bowhunting books and earning him a position as Field Editor of Eastmans’ Bowhunting Journal, a position that he still maintains.

In 2012, with the blessing of his wonderful wife, Kyri, after 25 years in construction, South decided to “retire” and take up bow building full time. Between writing and bow building, he is now fully immersed in the hunting industry—truly “living the dream!”

John Barklow

por Kifaru International

For those who don't know, John is Sitka's Big Game Product Manager. He is well known to many of you, but for those unfamiliar with John, he is a US Navy Veteran who capped off a distinguished career at Naval Special Warfare Center – Detachment Kodiak in Alaska, teaching NSW personnel how to survive in the cold. Although he was a diver by trade and not a SEAL, his expertise was valued from his years in the mountains that they recruited him to be an instructor at the Kodiak Schoolhouse.

Greg Poole

por Kifaru International

Greg Poole joins Aron today to talk about the differences and the crossovers of tournament archery shooting and "for-fun" archery shoots. Between TAC (Total Archery Challenge), Mountain Archery Fest, and multiple other local and nation wide events, there has been a boom in "for-fun" archery shoots, all the while archery tournaments have seen their numbers dwindle. Aron and Greg discuss what is the driving force behind this and how people in the archery space can continue to grow both and have people go to both, while still having fun.

Greg has competed in archery, professionally, for many years. Additionally, he has also worked for, and continue to work for, some of the biggest manufacturing companies in the archery industry.

Greg also runs BowJunky.com and the Bow Junky Podcast, both of which have tons of amazing content and information, go check them out!

Evan Hafer (Black Rifle Coffee Company)

por Kifaru International

Recently Evan and his company were profiled in a New York Times article, which was penned to show Evan in a light that was counter to what he actually supports. Because of the dishonest way Evan was portrayed in the article a huge amount of blacklash was thrown his way. Aron, Frank, and Evan dispel all the rumors and hearsay in this episode.

Evan Hafer is the founder and CEO of Black Rifle Coffee Company. America's leading Veteran-owned and operated premium, small-batch coffee roastery.

Evan started Black Rifle Coffee Company to provide a high-quality coffee to the pro-American and Veteran communities.

Between deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, Evan was working to refine both his coffee roasting and his firearms skills. He has spent over a decade researching coffee, refining his roast profiles, and (of course) drinking what he roasts. Black Rifle Coffee Company is quite literally the combination of his two favorite passions. Evan takes pride in the coffee he roasts, the veterans he employs, and the causes he supports.

Eddie Gallagher

por Kifaru International

Eddie Gallagher joined the Navy at age 19. All he wanted to do was fight for his country and become a United States Navy SEAL. For almost 20 years, he did both (15 of those years in the SEAL Teams), earning a stellar reputation along the way. Eddie deployed 8 times, including to war zones in Africa, Iraq, and Afghanistan. In 2014, Chief Gallagher was named the Sailor of the Quarter and then Sailor of the Year for NSW Group One (all West coast-based SEALs). During his career, Eddie was awarded 2 Bronze Stars with V for Valor, Meritorious Unit Commendation, Presidential Unit Citation, 2 Navy Commendation Medals, 3 Navy and Marine Corp Achievement Medals—1 with V for Valor and 5 Good Conduct Awards.

On September 11, 2018, Chief (SEAL) Eddie Gallagher was suddenly arrested at the medical facility where he was receiving treatment for traumatic brain injuries. He was taken to a military brig and held in solitary confinement without being told what he had been arrested for or how long he would be there.

Eddie would spend nine months in prison largely being denied medical treatment, access to legal counsel, and regular visits. His family was terrorized by the government while the press vilified him as a monster. Even after a jury of his peers found him innocent of murdering an ISIS fighter, there still exists a perception that Chief Gallagher got away with murder and was pardoned by President Trump. Neither are true.

Dayna Monroe: Sheepdog Response

por Kifaru International

Dayna Monroe recently completed her first course with Sheepdog Response.  She joins the podcast to detail her experience.

 

Sheepdog Response

Sheepdog Response was founded by Green Beret, Special Forces, Sniper, and former top 5 UFC Middleweight, Tim Kennedy. Tim was also the co-star of Hunting Hitler on the History Channel, and more recently, Hard To Kill, on the Discovery Channel.

People face threats of violence every day, ranging from large-scale terrorism to one-on-one assaults. Most people are unprepared, unequipped, and untrained to respond effectively. This weakness in the flock allows the wolves to attack with great ease and success.

The answer is not more laws. The wolves don’t follow them. We must give the good guys the tools they need to effectively respond to violence. The more Sheepdogs we can train to be truly ready to respond to a mass shooting, terrorist attack, violent mugging or home invasion, the better the chances are that the bad guys will get what they deserve and the good guys will survive. Most people sign up for martial arts or weapons training expecting to learn realistic self-defense, and few get it…

We have developed a curriculum that addresses the skills you need to successfully respond to threats.

Gear Selection

por Kifaru International

Hiking late spring in the high country of Colorado can be a challenging mix of fast running stream crossings, post holing through snow, freezing temperatures at night, and t-shirt weather during the day.  This makes gear selection a challenge.  Aron, Frank, David, and Kevin Estella talk about their recent adventure (or misadventure into the backcountry) and what gear they brought, as well as what they would have changed based on the conditions.

From Alone:

CLAY HAYES Season 8 Age: 40

Hometown: Milton, FL

Profession: Professional Bowyer & Hunter

Clay Hayes has been a lifelong student of the woods. Growing up in the rural pine woods of northwest Florida, he honed the skills in hunting, fishing and trapping that would serve him for the rest of his life. He has always been drawn to hunter/gatherer cultures and the self-reliant lifestyle they embody. As a child in the Florida backwoods, he practiced the primitive skills he admired in those self-reliant cultures and dreamed of someday living a similar life in the Rocky Mountains.

Those childhood dreams eventually led him into a career as a wildlife biologist, where he got to work in some of the most remote and beautiful landscapes in the lower 48. But despite investing seven years of college and ten years in the job, his true passion was always primitive and traditional archery. In 2017, he left the biology career behind to focus on teaching primitive bow building and archery through online videos and in-person classes.

Since building his first successful bow in 1999, Clay has introduced tens of thousands of people to traditional and primitive archery through his books, magazine articles and online videos.

Clay lives with his wife Liz and two sons, Coye and Fen, on their homestead in North Idaho. Together they hunt, fish, forage and grow a large garden. Raising their two boys in close connection with the earth, with a practical understanding of nature and a sense of self-reliance, is important to both Clay and Liz.

Here are the ten items Clay selected to bring on his survival journey to Grizzly Mountain:

1. Sleeping bag

2. Pot

3. Axe

4. Saw

5. Multitool

6. Bow and arrows

7. Paracord

8. Fishing line and hooks

9. Snare wire

10. Ferro rods

Backpack Hunt Prep

por Kifaru International

Much needed info in this episode if you're planning on backpacking this summer and prepping gear for the season.

 

Why you should support the CBA.

Hunting and fishing are forms of outdoor recreation as are hiking, rock climbing, biking, and 4-wheeling. Not everyone however, participates in outdoor recreation activities but those that do are often passionate about their involvement.

Bowhunters can probably be characterized as one of the more passionate groups of outdoor enthusiasts. We dearly love the outdoors and the wild things that reside within it. We are a diverse and extended family who regards bow hunting as a perfect union of man and the natural world. Our love for bow hunting and the scenes that accompany the privilege can only be understood by those that relish the environs as deeply as we do. We are literally drawn to nature…autumn arriving like a golden chariot piercing the pure air and azure sky on contrails of yesterday’s dreams and tomorrow’s promises. Our treks into the tall grasses and deep forest quench an ancient urge that others cannot apprehend. Yet, defeating our quarry isn't nearly as important as having had the opportunity to be among them… having had the opportunity to be part of something greater than ourselves.

There are those however, that totally disregard our passion for the outdoors and are financially motivated to take those freedoms from us. Organizations like HSUS, PETA, and others are determined to destroy hunting starting with archers…and will go to any means to accomplish their goals.

If you bowhunt in Colorado and are not currently a member of the CBA ... please consider joining today. We need your support to protect the privilege so many enjoy. Here are some other reasons to join:

  • Six issues of The Colorado Bowhunter magazine every year
  • Drawing entries for free bows and other top prizes
  • Personal input to season structures and other state regulations
  • Special information mailings on CBA events and 3-D shoots
  • Personal identification as a valued member and conservationist
  • Access to future "members only" features on the CBA website

Mountain Primal Meat Co.

por Kifaru International

Confidence is high you'll be hungry after this episode!

 

Mountain Primal Meat Co.

Our ranch did not start out with a desire to make money selling meat and provisions.  It wasn't even a dream when we purchased the land.  We had one thought:  "Let's build something out of this."  From that simple foundational idea we went from growing hay, to purchasing our first head of cattle, to finally developing the operation into a sustainable beef enterprise focused on quality and our animals' wellness.

We believe that we should continue our journey by not only pushing ourselves, but those we serve, towards personal greatness, whatever that looks like to the individual.  We serve our employees and work to help them grow, learn, and become leaders so they can raise their families and pursue their goals with enthusiasm earned from their accomplishments at our company.  We serve the organizations and people we sponsor by involving ourselves in their program in a way that ensures their continued success and growth while educating ourselves with lessons learned from their various pursuits. 

Finally, we serve our customers.  We want you to be inspired to blaze your own trail in life.  By eating the food we bring to market and wearing the clothes we design, we want you to feel connected to an overarching theme that is gaining traction here in the United States.  You may already feel it.  It's that desire to put down the soul-sucking electronic distractions in our lives, peer out into the world we live in, and make something out of our thoughts, grit, and know-how. 

You have but one chance to shape this world, shouldn't you leave your mark alongside your fellow modern pioneers?

We believe you should.

Bow Review

por Kifaru International

After years of testing multiple bows, Aron divulges the many factors that led to his ultimate favorite.  Cody Greenwood also joins the podcast to lend his technical expertise through his own research testing multiple bows.

 

Bow Tests:

​Traditional tackle is not readily available for Archers to pick up and test locally.  My goal is to provide Archers with unbiased quality information that helps them make a well educated choice and pick a bow that fits their needs. I have chosen metrics associated with Ergonomics, Performance and Sound to highlight the compromises within each Bowyer design.  I have worked hard  to make sure my testing results are accurate and repeatable. If you see a error or flaw feel free to contact me, I will correct it. 

My goal is to continuously improving myself as an Archer, the Archery Community and our Sport.  The Trad Community  at its core is made up of selfless people that help one another.  I hope this  effort maintains that spirit and adds value.   

God Bless,
