Aron and Frank talk with Luke Caudillo, host of Gladiators Unleashed, about how he manages his two joys in life, fighting and hunting.
Also in this episode, Frank talks about his curious love affair with spam, why not to drink, and how not to take a shoe to the eye.
Longtime hunting guide, Drummond Lindsey, joins Aron and Frank on Kifarucast, and discusses how blessed he is for being able to guide families in Mexico for so long. Aron and Drummond also discuss hunting fitness…sadly, Aron informs Drummond he is too short for his weight.
James Petker, avid hunter and record Mountain Goat holder in Washington State is called out of the blue from Aron and put on the spot for hunting stories. Aron and James also talk about how important it is to stay mentally active when in the field for extended periods of time and how a good hunting partner is key to success.
In this episode Aron interviews Patrick Smith, the founder and designer of Moutainsmith and Kifaru. Patrick discusses his design philosophy on how he developed a rugged mountaineering pack system for the hunting world. Patrick also discusses how he developed a pack-able stove for truly sustainable hunting in comfort and warmth while in the back country.
For the first time ever in the history of Kifaru, we are giving away a one of a kind prototype pack that may or may not enter our production line up. Eric Bender, our in house master designer, dreams up a plethora of pack designs, many of which go through several design refinements, and may or may not end up as a product for sale. To get your hands on one of his designs, simply leave a comment on iTunes. A winner will be picked at random from the comments on this episode. Good luck to all! Also, Aron and Frank answer more questions from listeners. Frank admits he never watched the Walking Dead. (Shame)(more…)
