We open with some questions about Harts Pass, as Rudy had just been up there doing some trail work with the Pacific Crest Trail Association. Politics of sorts are also discussed.Follow the podcast- https://www.instagram.com/iwillhuntpodcast/Follow Cantrell Outdoors- https://www.instagram.com/cantrelloutdoors/Cantrell Outdoors website- https://cantrelloutdoors.com
This discussion is sort of a further, in-depth discussion on rifles. We did an episode on rifles and Rudy still had some questions especially surrounding the AR-15s and AR-10s. We also get into all the styles Kris will be bringing with him on his upcoming hunt in Montana.Follow the podcast- https://www.instagram.com/iwillhuntpodcast/Follow Cantrell Outdoors- https://www.instagram.com/cantrelloutdoors/Cantrell Outdoors website- https://cantrelloutdoors.com
We talk all about ticks! Why do they bite? How to remove them? How long do they feed?Dr Ingels confirms the bullseye rash appears around a tick bite only if the person contracted Lyme Disease.Also, I ask Dr Ingels about Lyme disease and how it may affect you. He tells various symptoms of Lyme Disease as well as it’s history. What type of ticks carry Lyme? How long does a tick have to bite you in order to contract Lyme?From website-Developed by a leading naturopathic physician, Dr. Ingels has chronicled a unique integrated medicine approach to treating both acute and chronic Lyme disease. Learn about the proven results from a physician who has successfully managed his Lyme disease symptoms for more than 15 years. The statistics about Lyme disease are alarming: it is one of the fastest-growing infectious diseases in the US and it is very difficult to diagnose and treat. Millions of people worldwide suffer from its often-changing symptoms which confuse it with many other diseases. In The Lyme Solution, Dr. Darin Ingels details his ground-breaking approach to healing both acute and chronic Lyme disease.Conventional treatment protocol too often relies on toxic doses of antibiotics that may weaken your body and worsen symptoms. Dr. Ingels’ approach is to boost your body’s innate ability to heal itself. The Lyme Solution offers the latest research about the diagnosis and treatment of Lyme, but more importantly, Dr. Ingels’ approach provides a path to wellness by fortifying the gut (microbiome) and enhancing the immune system, which then strengthens the body’s ability to heal from within.Purchase the book- https://www.amazon.com/Lyme-Solution-Inflammatory-Auto-Immune-Response/dp/0735216304Website- https://dariningelsnd.comInstagram- https://www.instagram.com/dariningelsnd/Facebook- https://www.facebook.com/DarinIngelsNDFollow the podcast- https://www.instagram.com/iwillhuntpodcast/Follow Cantrell Outdoors- https://www.instagram.com/cantrelloutdoors/Cantrell Outdoors website- https://cantrelloutdoors.com
We talk about on site, backcountry butchering. Kris explains how most animals are similar so he uses a deer as his main example. Actually, he does a great job of describing the process through audio.Back stretch article- https://cascadehikerpodcast.com/like-to-hike/back-pain-solvedFollow the podcast- https://www.instagram.com/iwillhuntpodcast/Follow Cantrell Outdoors- https://www.instagram.com/cantrelloutdoors/Cantrell Outdoors website- https://cantrelloutdoors.comJack Mattingly of the Whiskey Fever was nice enough to write a short song to use as the intro and outro.

Kris was drawn for the Multi Season Elk Tag and he is very excited. This is not a once in a lifetime, so he hopes to win this every year… Ha!He is sort of torn on location because Western WA Roosevelt Elk is what he is leaning towards. We dig into all the details of what this tag means.Kris describes the terrain where Roosevelt Elk are in Western Washington. He brings up scent indicating contraptions, which I was surprised we hadn’t discussed before.Follow the podcast- https://www.instagram.com/iwillhuntpodcast/Follow Cantrell Outdoors- https://www.instagram.com/cantrelCantrell Outdoors website- https://cantrelloutdoors.comJack Mattingly of the Whiskey Fever was nice enough to write a short song to use as the intro and outro.

We start off this podcast with a little beaver talk because I was discovering Kris’s beaver pillow he has in the museum.The topic is tags and we do our best at staying on the subject. Kris does his usual top notch job teaching me these things I have no clue about. If you want to learn the ins and outs of points toward sought after tags and how to go about it, then here it is!Jack Mattingly of the Whiskey Fever was nice enough to write a short song to use as the intro and outro.

In case you want to learn about bow hunting like Rudy does, Kris sits down and tells the basics about the ins and outs of it all.He gets his dusty bow from the garage and talks about the various parts and how to’s….. Kris even tells a few stories!Follow the podcast- https://www.instagram.com/iwillhuntpodcast/Follow Cantrell Outdoors- https://www.instagram.com/cantrelloutdoors/Cantrell Outdoors website- https://cantrelloutdoors.com
Rudy and Kris sit down to talk about deer in Washington. Whitetail Deer are prolific on the Northeast corner of the state, Mule Deer are found in Eastern Washington and Blacktail Deer are in Western Washington.Kris talks about the population of deer on our Islands like Whidbey Island. There are plenty of attainable, great tasting deer out there! He likens the area to a rainforest and actually calls it a “hoot of a hunt”…. Haha. Jurasic style was another, perhaps better descriptive he gives.We talk about the differences between the points of deer. The forks of deer antlers determine how many points the deer is labeled as. Rudy didn’t know any of this.Winthrop is a known place for mule deer hunting in Eastern Washington. People will call certain areas over there a “pumpkin patch” because of the enormous amount of hunters wearing blaze orange all hunting the same area.Rudy asks, “Why wear camouflage, if you are required to wear a blaze orange vest?” Kris talks about this topic a bit.The idea, Kris tells, is to find an area where others won’t be. This gives you an advantage in finding better deer. Even just getting a mile off any road will help a bunch. Checking maps to find meadowy, water filled areas to hike to.Regulations are important to follow in order to stay within the laws. They will also tell you when exactly you can hunt what areas. Also, special tags can be applied for to hunt deer in areas or times when it is normally not permitted.Rudy asks an ethics question about shooting a buck while mating during the rut… It gets a bit funny before the boys get back on track.Kris walks us through the shot itself. Placement, environment and making sure it is a legal deer to shoot.Rudy tells a story about an “albino” buck he and his dad spotted with binoculars near an alpine lake. It was a monster and the size was noticeable after some other hikers scared it off. The deer was huge as compared to the hikers. Kris said it was probably a piebald deer which has a patchwork of blonde hair. The size described leads to the probability of it being an elk.Follow the podcast- https://www.instagram.com/iwillhuntpodcast/Follow Cantrell Outdoors- https://www.instagram.com/cantrelloutdoors/Cantrell Outdoors website- https://cantrelloutdoors.comJack Mattingly of the Whiskey Fever was nice enough to write a short song to use as the intro and outro.

Kris Cantrell owns and runs Cantrell Outdoors. He typically says to start with a gun you can do a lot with. He often recommend the .300 ultra magnum. It is a magnum cartridge which can shoot just about anything in the lower 48 states of North America.“Shoot as big of a caliber as you are comfortable with.” Some hunters are recoil sensitive so this can limit their caliber size.Muzzle breaks redirect the sound right back to your ears though they also help with recoil. Wearing ear plugs is a must in this type of a setup.Kris is excited, and he uses, carbon fiber barrels. These barrels will take a big percentage of weight off of your overall weight of your rifle.First time rifle buyers should buy a cheaper manufactured gun for their first rifle. Custom guns, like this Kris make, are a lot more expensive,Scopes, even within the same brand, can vary in price. This can altar the overall price of your hunting setup.When shooting a gun for the first time, you might consider using multiple brands of bullets in order to figure what your rifle will do with each bullet. also, when at the range, try shooting off the belly, kneeling and standing in order to practice a real, possible shot.Bipods are helpful in the field. Make sure to practice with them and in the style where you will need to use the bipod. Otherwise you might consider leaving it at home.
Hunting can take you away from roads and trails so it is important to be in shape in order to deal with the strenuous conditions.Cardio is important, though someone getting ready for spot and stalk hunts should also be concerned with their strength. Box jumps and stair climbs will help out a ton. Your pack will most likely have 20-40 extra pounds in it after loading it with meat, so you need to be strong in order to scary that extra weight.Kris tells a grueling story about a time he was on a hunt and was not in good enough shape to pack out his bear. He was out of shape and split from his group. He shot a bear and had to go disarticulate it. Getting out of the situation ended with his partners needing to use rope to help him out of nasty hole.Somehow we ended up talking about Mule Tape… Kris recommends it. If you are an out of shape hunter, you might want to carry some in your pack if you need your hunting buddies to pull you out of hole.Rudy just joined back up with Mt Baker Crossfit after a year plus hiatus. Crossfit just might be the best style of working out for priming your body for hunting. Rudy has had some back injuries in the past and so he has been stretching out extra to try an help balance the extra effort.“Born from the depths of Hates,” is how Kris describes the Stair Mill or possibly the StairMaster Step Mill.Follow the podcast- https://www.instagram.com/iwillhuntpodcast/Follow Cantrell Outdoors- https://www.instagram.com/cantrelloutdoors/Cantrell Outdoors website- https://cantrelloutdoors.com
Pick a hunt which will be attainable and successful. Don’t start out with an extreme hunt and try to make sure you will have fun. Success doesn’t always mean a kill.Which weapon will you start with. Bow, Rifle and muzzle loader. Are you comfortable with either? If not, than you will most likely be successful with rifle.ON X Maps app for your smart phone. This is a lifesaver to help hunters know where to hunt. It is leaps and bounds above anything else out there. You may have public land right near your house and this app will show you.Working out to make sure you can hang in the mountains and terrain you are hunting in. It will change you as a hunter if you get a perfect kill and are not in shape enough to pack out all the meat.Hunters Education is a must. We are hoping to find someone who teaches these courses to chat with on the podcast.Regulations is a very important topic to get the basics of. Know when and where you can hunt! What are the rules. Changes happen every year. Shooting hours, hunters orange, areas where you can and can’t use rifles are a few of the rules to cover.Buck fever- The make or break moment in a hunt. This is real and needs to be talked about before taking your first shot in the field.Shot placement is so important. A new hunter should study where to aim and where exactly are the vitals. Everyone will make a bad shot, though preparation is important. If you do not get a kill shot and ethics will tell you to properly chase the animal and fill your tag with THAT animal.Once you get to your freshly killed animal, now you need to know how to properly turn it into something which will feed your family. Knowing the edible parts and how to correctly butcher it. Keep the area clean and practice proper field care. We would love to chat with a butcher on the podcast eventually.Will you scout an area or pick an area and go there to find your animals in the moment? We will chat about trips in both styles and time could be the big difference between the two.CWD is a topic all hunters should know about and be aware of. Chronic Wasting Disease is in. most southern states of the USA and is slowly spreading to western states.What type of clothing should you hunt in? We will talk about the different seasons and what you will need.Types of hunts- Tree stand hunting, spot and stock, road hunting. There may be different animals that may be better to hunt with certain styles.Binoculars and scopes will be a topic to cover. There are so many different levels to choose from in price and efficiency.Long distance shooting has a ton of ins and outs to discuss. Wind, terrain and even the Earth’s curvature come into factor. Kris feels like he can talk for hours about this.Public Land! The politics behind hunting is an important thing to discuss. Conservation is key to the future of hunting.Out of state or out of country hunting. CWD plays a factor between states and flying can put a big wrench in your wheel if it is not planned out properly.We both think it would be a fun conversation to chat with a non hunter who doesn’t understand why people hunt. It is good to civilly discuss this topic to get the points out on the table. What about vegans or vegetarians?Hunters ethics is another discussion that can go on for hours. We will dive into the do’s and don’ts of hunting.How can we get more people interested in hunting? Are there other people who didn’t grow up hunting who we can helpmeet interested in it? This will only help preserve more areas for hunting in the future and better the future of the animals we hunt.Our daughter- will we pass on our hunting knowledge to our kids?How does hunting affect our personal relationships? Family is important and so is the quality of food we procure.Follow the podcast- https://www.instagram.com/iwillhuntpodcast/Follow Cantrell Outdoors- https://www.instagram.com/cantrelloutdoors/Cantrell Outdoors website- https://cantrelloutdoors.comJack Mattingly of the Whiskey Fever was nice enough to write a short song to use as the intro and outro.
