Welcome to the Backcountry Rookies Big Game Hunting podcast, we are new to the backcountry hunting community, or as some would say "Rookies". Our goal is to educate ourselves as well as other new western hunters and gain the experience we all need to be successful backcountry hunters. As we begin our exciting new journey we want to invite other Rookies, like us, as well as seasoned western hunters to learn and help all skill levels become prepared for their backcountry hunting adventures. In this podcast we cover backcountry hunting gear and equipment, elk hunting, mule deer hunting, antelope hunting , and other western big game species. Brought to you by the Sportsmen's Nation.

Usually a good podcast with good topics and guests. Some episodes especially the newest one has very poor audio quality. It’s very frustrating to be listening to a story and have the guests cut in and out and barely be able to hear certain sections of the podcast.
Great podcast for the beginner DIY out west hunter
Just getting started listening to this podcast, so I’m starting from the very first episode. These guys are doing a great job asking questions and sharing info for guys like me that are from Ohio and want to head west to backpack for western game. Looking forward to listening to all the episodes. Great job guys!
Great info for the new Backcountry hunter.
