Tribe. Meat. Movement.

The Mountain Project

Because we put ourselves and what we do out into the public, we draw criticism from people who don’t hunt, primarily on YouTube and to some degree on Instagram, and especially on the video of Chase’s bear hunt on Kodiak Island in 2016. To those who don’t do it, hunting appears to be an exercise in ego, domination, and the “toxic” masculinity we hear of … Read More

How To Glass Big Game

Glassing Big Game

I just finished a Google Search: “How to Glass for Big Game”. Maybe you’ve done similar. Mostly I was curious what the results would look like, as this is something I think about each time I sit down on a rock and pry open the legs of my tripod to settle in behind the glass. There’s no shortage of strategies, but most of the strategies … Read More

Hunting Boots


When I started getting into hunting seriously, or what I thought was seriously in 2006, I drove myself to the local Sportsman’s [Out]house and chose a pair of mid-calf high huntin’ boots.

I have far too many worldly possessions and I am aware of that. It is something that I am working on, getting rid of the stuff in my life that holds no true value. The things that … Read More

Would They Be Disappointed?


While aimlessly wandering the juniper flats of Northern Arizona in search of shed elk antlers every spring, I often stumble across arrowheads abandoned in the shifting soils. It seems that I find one every time I head out. These lost relics appear with the spring erosion of melting snow, begging for their story to be revived by elicit day dreaming. I often spend hours pondering … Read More
