JOHN BARKLOW | A Primer on Hunting

Order of Man

Hunting has started to gain some serious traction over the past several years. With notable influencers like Joe Rogan, Cameron Hanes, and John Dudley all advocating for the benefits of connecting with your food source, it’s easy to see why so many have become interested in the process. In fact, I only started hunting 4 years ago and, in that time, I have been introduced to some amazing people in the community like my guest today, John Barklow, who is a big game product manager for the premier camouflage on the market, SITKA Gear. Today, John and I talk about how social media has both been helping and hurting the cause of hunting, why there is such a surge in the hunting space, why – if you want to get into hunting yourself – you need to take initiative, the beautiful responsibility outdoorsmen have, and the proficiencies men need to develop to become successful in harvesting wild game. SHOW HIGHLIGHTS: The rising popularity of hunting Instagram hunting vs. reality Finding common ground with vegans and vegetarians Building the best outdoor gear you can get How to get started in hunting Starting with the right equipment and clothing Putting in the reps before you go for the big trophy The trophy is a reminder of the memories and hard work Stop making excuses and get out there Getting experience even if you don’t have a tag Training SEALs Understand the limitations of what you wear Want maximum health, wealth, relationships, and abundance in your life?

John Barklow

Kifarucast

For todays episode John Barklow joins Aron and Frank to discuss gear and training for the backcountry. They go over the fine balance between being over-trained and under-geared with being under-trained and over-geared and how to find the sweet spot. The guys also discuss their future hunting plans and what gear they intend on bringing, with tons of great advice and some silly jokes they give even the most seasoned hunter food for thought. 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.
