You bet he did, he was also probably chasing spikes and they magically became 20 points in the painting
Pretty sure he's talking Exo. I'm huge fans of theirs for many reasons, the above included.What is that pack company? Seek Outside? Think they have people they sponsor, I know Gritty and Lampers used their tipis and stoves, wouldn’t be shocked if they don’t use the packs in the future.
Great post.I agree mostly, but we are way beyond that and there is no going back.
back in the day, talented hunters were well known within the local inner circles, they were still recognized, and looked at the same way, just on a way smaller scale. it's not completely the fault of the "celebs" you mention, though obviously many hunt just for the recognition they are trying to get.
a person cannot hunt a lot, and share his/her experiences, and be very successful without people recognizing it anymore, even if they just share within their inner circle, those pics and stories end up on the internet.... there are hunting "celebs" that most know, even though they aren't personally posting their life online, that's just the times we live in now.
take a person like Aron for example, he says he doesn't like social media and wishes he didn't have to do it, and I believe that from him, but in his life path, for now he pretty much has to.
I get what you are saying, but i'm not gonna blame someone for trying to build a life where they can hunt non stop, and still make a living.... some are attention hoes, but some are trying to find a way to hunt non stop and make a living out of it.... can't blame them.
the beauty of this all, is it doesn't have to effect your life in any way whatsoever, you don't have to follow or pay attention to anyone.
if you are on any social media (forums or otherwise) you can't criticize people sharing their hunts and knowledge, that's what makes things entertaining, you being on a forum is participating in the thing you don't like.
like I said, I see where you are coming from, but it's just not how the world currently works, a lot has changed in the past 20yrs, and it's gonna keep changing. if you don't like it, you have the option to avoid social media (all forms) and live your life and do your thing.
I am approaching a crossroad myself, I have avoided all social media besides a couple forums, but i'm shifting my career path, and will have to start doing the social media BS if I want to compete in my industry.... i'm not looking forward to that aspect, but that's the life we live in now.
a lot of jobs these days demand a social media presence, and with that you put yourself out there, and may become known, good or bad
and perhaps the OG of celebrity hunter, Mr Fred BearChuck Adams, Dwight Schuh, Curt Wells, Myles Keller, etc, etc, etc. They have been around a long time. They just had a different media 15 years ago.
Don't like it, don't listen. It's pretty simple.

Hopefully he posts a video telling us about his kit, maybe he'll go into details on his stickbow setup before he thanks his sponsors. Wonder what backpack HE was running!wonder what the guys FOC is and arrow weight?? But did it happen if you don't post it on IG or say it was 60 vertical miles?? only thing is how full your freezer is at the end of the yr. Those freezer IG posts should be the new fad! lol
If that was the weirdest you've ever listened to, you gotta try out a cryptid podcast or twoI don’t know who Brian call is but that was the weirdest podcast I’ve ever listened to. Without knowing sides I would have to side with Aron and I’m definitely not a Snydee groupie.
Doesnt EXO sponsor the BRO boys? Top Priority also uses their packs.
That may be, but from what I understand there is "pro staffing" where they are getting paid. They may have an agreement, for the BRO guys I guess, that they get some royalties off the packs branded BRO. They also do limited runs of those packs, not alwats in stock. Take it for what it's worth, I'm just a moron.‘The Bro guys and Elk 101 are who EXO sponsors. EXO even made a Bro bag based on their input.
No I don’t think he hiked that far. Probably only a mile off the road but he definitely couldnt of gotten it back to the truck without his $700 backpack.
