  • Ep. 35: Elk Bros

    1 MAR. 2024 · If one wants to learn to play the guitar, a quick search on Google will likely reveal a variety of instructors in your state willing to provide lessons. If you have a guitar, and maybe even if you don't, the process of beginning to learn how to pick the strings is relatively easy. A quick internet search, a couple phone calls and a few dollars later, one will likely be receiving professional coaching on how to produce music on that instrument. Overcoming the barriers to entry when it comes to hunting, and especially Western hunting is far more challenging. Generally speaking, it takes many hard-earned seasons of trial and error for one to become proficient in the art and science of hunting elk. One way to reduce your learning curve and expedite your path to success in the field is to hire a professional coach. When it comes to coaching elk hunters no one is more qualified than Joe Giglia of Elk Bros. Coach Giglia has taken 37 elk in 40 years on public land. In this episode Joe sits down to talk with Jesse Deubel at the New Mexico Outdoor Adventure Hunting and Fishing Show. This conversation is packed full of useful information and will leave you dreaming of hearing bugling bulls this fall. If you want to maximize your chances of connecting with one of those bulls and invest in truly becoming a master of your craft, give Coach Giglia a call. Enjoy the Listen! https://elkbros.com/

  • Ep. 34: Hole in the Wall Getaway

    1 FEB. 2024 · Join Big Addison and Jesse Deubel as they discuss the history and magnificence of Columbus, NM and the vast public lands surrounding this quaint community. Today, most visitors to Columbus are there for a short stop while en route to Old Mexico. Situated just a few miles north of the port of entry to Palomas, MX visitors often stay on the US side of the border and walk over to Mexico for shopping, dining and reduced price medical care. The treasures of this region are plentiful and one of New Mexico's best kept secrets. A visit here wouldn't be complete without checking out Pancho Villa State Park. Jesse Deubel frequents the area because it offers some of the most exceptional quail hunting in the world. Complete with luxurious amenities and a welcoming attitude towards hunting dogs, the Hole in the Wall Getaway makes a perfect homebase for hunters. In addition to robust quail populations and a high concentration of javelina, the nearby Florida Mountains are home to gravity-defying persian ibex. The spectacular public lands around this region are rich with cultural sites and they deserve permanent protection. A National Monument designation would ensure that these areas remain pristine for future generations while simultaneously enhancing existing uses like hunting, hiking, regulated off-highway-vehicle adventures and cattle grazing. For more information about the benefits a national monument would provide, please visit http://www.protectmimbrespeaks.org/ . Enjoy the Listen!

  • Ep. 32: Gearing up for Success

    1 DIC. 2023 · Description: There are numerous barriers to entry for new hunters and those returning to the activity after a long absence. Recruiting a good mentor can help shorten the learning curve. Access to knowledge provided by a mentor can provide guidance regarding when, where and how to pursue our quarry. It's also important to be equipped with the right gear when entering the field, especially in remote, backcountry hunting situations. In this episode Jesse Deubel talks with Sam and Natasha Wallick as they unpack the process they recently followed to get ready for their very first mountain hunting experience in search of elk in Northern New Mexico. The conversation includes valuable insights regarding the differences in access and availability to gear for women versus men. While countless clothing brands make high quality outdoor clothing for men, options for attire specifically designed for hard-charging female hunters can be much more difficult to find. From clothing selections to choosing the right firearm, ammunition, backpacks and optics, this discussion covers a lot. There were a lot of firsts for Sam and Natasha on this hunt including seeing their very first elk and camping in the backcountry for the first time. It takes a bit of courage and an adventurous spirit to take the plunge and dive into the magnificent world of western big game hunting. Huge thanks to these new recruits for sharing their fresh perspectives. Enjoy the listen! For more info: http://www.proishunting.com/ http://www.mysteryranch.com/Packs/Outdoor/Womens-Outdoor-Packs
