Hard Decision in Breeding w/ Jason Carter

Jason Carter is the owner and operator of Merry Meeting Kennels, professional trainer, author for Project Upland and a teacher. He fits perfectly into our theme on The Journey: teach, train and learn. The Journey, on the Houndsman XP Podcast Network, is all about bettering the hounds we hunt. That starts with the decision to breed and the crosses we make. Jason recently wrote an article about making the hard decision on not breeding your dog. When you cherish the hounds you run and want to carry those memories through time it’s a common practice to try and replicate those hounds. Heath and Jason start at the decision that drives us to breed our hounds. What is it that we are looking to accomplish by breeding and some ways to evaluate that decision? This is a hard conversation, as Heath and Jason discuss, that is sometimes avoided. This is a must listen if you have dogs and are interested in continuing to hunt. Sometimes the hard decision is the right decision.

Bears Gone Wild with Brad Luttrell

For the new comers bear hunting with hounds comes with a lot of unknowns and questions. What gear to take, what to expect, how do hounds operate, what do Houndsmen do, and the list goes on. Brad Luttrell, CEO of Go Wild, joins Chris to recap a bear hunt that he and Derek Towles took with Heath Hyatt and the crew in Virginia. Brad dives into the full details from gear failures to an all day pack out after the bear was down. He describes the feeling of abandonment when the hunters had to round up dogs, the epic struggle against some wicked weather conditions and his feeling of accomplishment after the day was done.

Houndsman XP: From the Vault - World Champion Bull Rider to World Class Lion Hunter - Kody Lohstroh

PBR World Champion Bull Rider Kody Lohstroh joins Chris and Shorty for this episode of the Houndsman XP Podcast. Kody has been hunting his entire life. His professional bull riding career kept him busy, consuming a large amount of his time and mental focus to rise to the top of the sports world. However, he never lost his spark and passion to hunt.  Hunting is a life sport. When we train our children and mentor young people into the hunting culture we train them for a lifestyle for a lifetime. Long after a person has to hang up the cleats, put down the ball or hang up the bull rope, hunting can fill the need to achieve excellence.  Kody will talk about what it took to get to the top of the bull riding world and the crew will discuss the parallels that can be applied to hunting and success with hounds. Having a top hound or pack of hounds to catch large game or win a world championship in the coonhound world the same lessons apply. Maybe you have an up and coming sports star that wants to achieve greatness and needs some motivation and inspiration; get it from a world champion with a great message.
