Ep 101: Martin Schindel – Michigan Crossbow Hunters Group

In this episode, I talk with Martin Schindel. Martin and his wife Kelli created the page Michigan Crossbow Hunters on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/groups/1412961368933935/).  This group is open to anyone that hunts with any type of weapon anywhere around the world. While the group tries to focus on information relevant to Michigan hunters, anyone is welcome to share their hunting exploits around the world.

With over 5,500 members and growing, this family-friendly group is a great place to share your love of hunting. In the spring of 2019, a shed hunting get together was done and it made the news. (https://www.facebook.com/FOXSportsDetroit/videos/669626686791167/).

Come and check out the group on Facebook.

Ep 097: Brad Luttrell – GoWild App Founder and Restless Native Podcast

In this episode, I talk with Brad Luttrell,  one of the founders of the outdoor app GoWild. GoWild is an application for both the iOS and Android platform that is built by outdoors people for outdoors people. This is an app designed to be used by hunters, fishermen, and anyone else who enjoys outdoor activities. Unlike some of the larger social media platforms that remove hunting or fishing content, GoWild is all-embracing of it as are the people that use it.

You can go to the Time To Go Wild (www.timetogowild.com) webpage to see many of the current features and future features that are being worked on.  There is also a  GoWild App YouTube page: (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC35NE3KkYcpullhcpYqZuLw)

Brad also does a podcast called Restless Native and you can access the website www.everrestless.com).  When the app was released in 2017, there were articles that interviewed Brad and discussed the application. Here are links to them:

Ep 084: Bushnell’s Trigger Effect TV

In this episode, I talk with Dean Trumbley and Kent Michie, hosts of Bushnell’s Trigger Effect TV (triggereffect.tv).  The show is on a number of places including The Sportsman channel, My Outdoor TV (myoutdoortv.com) and you can access prior season’s on their website.

We discuss a number of items ranging from how the show came about, Dean and Kent’s outdoor past, and something we are all passionate about which is stopping hunters from attacking other hunters. Dean and Kent made an awesome video about this called Hunting – The Big Picture (Hunting – The Big Picture). It was fantastic to talk with fellow outdoorsmen who believe like I do that without a change in how some hunters feel that they are entitled to put their views onto others, hunting and fishing could be in trouble for future generations.

We also spend time discussing how Dean and Kent run their show and that they do a lot of filming for each other, self-filming and maybe occasionally take a cameraperson with them. This keeps the hunt more intimate without having to have a large number of people go on trips with them.

We also discuss the fantastic sponsors that are what make the show possible. This includes Bushnell (bushnell.com), Savage Arms(savagearms.com), Federal Premium(federalpremium.com), Primos(primos.com),  Tactacam(tactacam.com), and the list goes on.

During their recent trip to the Shot Show (an industry event in Las Vegas), Dean and Kent were able to visit with some of their sponsors to see new products. Dean and Kent made some great videos on Shot Show products including an awesome Savage Model 212 bolt action Turkey gun (https://youtu.be/PtDjaNh1uZI), and if you are a predator hunter, the new Primo’s DogNet call (https://youtu.be/j6fEogVm-NM
