HTW-Ep 62 Nightmare Hunts
Taking inspiration from one of our members the Rolling Bones team shares stories of hunts that didn’t go quite to plan. When you spend as much time in the field as these guys vetting hunts you’re bound to face challenges. And you learn a lot along the way. As Brian Mehmen likes to say “activity is your greatest teacher.” The guys have three things you should do to deal with tough hunting situations. Enjoy what wasn’t so humorous at the time, but looking back are lessons happily learned. Maybe you can relate, with or without the whale blubber.

HTW-Ep 58 Why You Should Consider Hunting Asia Now
We have had a tremendous amount of people calling us asking about hunting Central Asia and Russia. With all the borders closed on the continent options are still wide option in many areas of the world. And here’s the thing - your trip to hunt big game species in Russia or Tajikistan (for example) are more affordable that you may think. In this episode Brian, Brad and Bryan tackle the three questions we get asked most often: how affordable is it, how accessible is it and is it safe. Think about this… you could hunt Ibex for about the cost of a mule deer. And most of Asia sees no local hunting pressure since it is too expensive for locals to hunt these species. The RBO teams dives into these topics and wraps with a discussion of species that Asia presents. And if you have any further questions feel free to reach out to us at Rolling Bones Outdoors.
