Rank #1: 20 How Jessica Byers followherarrow and Rihana Cary Make it Happen
Prepare yourselves for an exciting episode! We were extremely fortunate to catch Jessica Byers @followherarrow and Rihana Cary @rihanacary together at the same time during and extremely busy weekend for them at the Total Archery Challenge held at the Snowbird Ski Resort in SLC, UT. They are fresh off their trip to Australia and New Zealand and it was so great to hear their stories of the hunts they did and feel the emotion as they relived their success and challenges of hunting in unforgiving terrain. Statements such as " I thought we were going to die" and " I couldn't have done it without you" were spoken and felt as we sat and talked. It became plainly obvious very quickly that these two women have a fierce determination to succeed and a undying love for the outdoors. They definitely possess the warrior spirit and are perfect ambassadors for women in the hunting world. Thanks again to Jessica and Rihana for being so gracious and we can't wait to do it again.

Rank #13: 51 How Kaysie Thomas Makes It Happen
We were instantly jealous when Kaysie Thomas told us she spends at lest 6 days a week outside in the mountains doing what she loves with her husband Troy and their dog Kylo. Kaysie and Troy have built a life outdoors as wildland firefighters and then starting and growing a business collecting and selling antler sheds. With the addition of Kylo to the shed hunting crew there won't be too many sheds left for other folks to find! Kylo is a shed finding machine and we don't want to leave out the other shed crazy members in their household their three cats Yoda, Wookie and Vader! Kaysie's outdoor spirit comes through as she tells the story of how she became a hunter and how she felt when she harvested her first animal. The success Kaysie and Troy have had in the multiple backcountry hunts they do every year is unparalleled and well earned. Thanks Kaysie for a look into your outdoor lifestyle and keep making it happen outdoors. @kaysie_thomas

Rank #17: 41 How Ned Ledoux Makes It Happen
The first weekend in February found us the high desert town of Elko Nevada for what proved to be a weekend that will stay etched in our memories forever. We had the distinct pleasure of sitting down with Ned Ledoux while he was in town performing a couple shows for the 35th annual National Cowboy Poetry Gathering. From the moment we sat down to the conclusion of the interview Ned in his own way put us at ease and made the next hour or so fly by with stories of his childhood growing up on the ranch in Wyoming and how he got started in music by playing a set of drums in the basement. We of course talked about what it was like having the legendary Chris Ledoux for a father and honestly we weren't surprised at how close the apple falls from the tree. Ned is as genuine as they come and lives his life committed to the western way of life, faith in God and family and telling stories through his music. There's no doubt he will " Never Change". Be sure to watch for Ned's new album coming out this fall! Thank you Ned from the bottom of our hearts for spending some time with us and sharing your stories.
