S2 E30 - Powderhook - Eric Dinger and Andrew McKean

Mule Deer Foundation - Talking Mule Deer Podcast

MDF Podcast - Talking Mule Deer with Steve Belinda and Jodi Stemler S2 E30 - Eric Dinger with Powderhook and Outdoor Life Hunting Editor Andrew McKean This week on Talking Mule Deer, we are visiting with Eric Dinger and Andrew McKean about mentoring new hunters. We open by talking with Andrew about his journey as a conservation journalist – as well as his journey to live in “the middle of nowhere” in Glasgow, Montana. Then Eric tells us about Powderhook, the technology company he founded that is making it their mission to add 3 million new hunters in the next five years through mentoring. He jokingly refers to Powderhook as the hunting mentor “match.com” because it’s intended to help connect new hunters with experienced hunters to get more people in the field. This new social technology is tapping into what more people are using for acquiring information and helping to reduce the barriers that people who might be interested in hunting may be facing. Andrew, who is renowned as a tremendous storyteller, is helping Powderhook to communicate our outdoor heritage and build the mentor network willing to take someone new out in the field. We hear about the experiences he’s had mentoring his daughter to hunt, featured in an article in Outdoor Life, then mentoring a man in his community who never had the opportunity to hunt before, and this year mentoring three different hunters he had never met before. We wrap up by talking about how it’s a responsibility for those of us who love to hunt to share this love with people who might not otherwise have the opportunity to get outdoors. As Eric says, the start of mentorship is an invite – he calls on all of us to take that step and ask someone to go with us this hunting season.

Ep. 53: Andrew McKean

The Hunting Collective

This week I’m joined by my friend Andrew McKean, former editor-in-chief at Outdoor Life and one of the sharpest minds in the outdoor space. We recorded this podcast in the middle of the frozen waters of Fort Peck Lake near McKean’s home of Glasgow, Montana. You’ll know that because of the constant gusts of freezing cold wind blasting our microphones. It’s a great conversation about how we retain hunters, encouraging youth to get outdoors and the virtues of ice fishing and Old Milwaukee Light. Enjoy.
