Show Notes

            Fireside chats are a staple in hunting camps. Clay took his son and a family friend on a late season backcountry whitetail hunt while the bears are sleeping. This is some of the same ground that we hunt bear on. We believe that it is good to know the area that you hunt if you're able.


            In this episode you will hear Clay have a chat with Bear & David discuss the benefits and challenges of using mules in the back country. The mule of the hour is Izzie, the first and currently only mule that Clay has ever trained. Check out Project Hunting Mule on our Youtube Channel to watch the wild ride as Clay trains Izzie!
