Hey Rokslide followers. As everyone knows, the world is changing fast. Just five years ago, blogs were all the rage. I started mine in 2013. Three-hundred-plus posts later, I have amassed a pile of mule deer related info for anyone to view for free. Everything from tips & tactics, to mule deer gear, to my live hunts. It’s been a great way for me to help people become better buck hunters. However, I’ve had to cut back on my blog posts the last six months for several reasons.
First the blog world has been overshadowed by the next big tech revolution for communication: podcasts. While many people know what they are, many still do not. Think of a podcast as a recorded radio show that you can subscribe to (again, free!) and only listen to what you’re interested in. Shrinking are the days when you scan the talk radio stations hoping to find something that interests you while you drive, work in the garage, or whatever you do while your ears are still free to take in information.
If you don’t know how to listen to podcasts, you have several choices. While you can listen in on a PC, the best way is via your smartphone. Some late model vehicles even have a podcast button so you can listen through your speakers.
My Rokslide partner, Ryan Avery, launched his Rokslide podcast titled “Avery Adventures” last year. He and his hunting partner-wife, Tanya, have made a big dent in the podcast world with their simple talk, frank-style podcast. I was committed to help them so have shifted some of my mule deer content to their podcasts. Here are the two most recent shows I’ve appeared on (there are more in their archives)
Second, another road-block with with my blog was technical. Ryan, who’s also responsible for maintenance and growth of Rokslide’s digital presence, completely rebuilt our online magazine (Rokslide.com) where all our articles and my blog appear. This was long overdue and has given our articles a much better look and improves your ability to search for articles by certain authors.
However, the upgrade didn’t go off without a hitch. We lost our subscriber list meaning that when I posted a blog, no one was receiving notification and the post essentially was lost in cyberspace unless you purposely searched for it. Ryan has now fixed that problem and I’m resuming my blog (watch for content on researching your mule deer hunts, a review on a book all bucks hunters should read, and much more.) BE SURE AND SUBSCRIBE. If you’re on a PC, subscribe at upper right “Keep Up With Rokslide”. If you’re mobile, scroll to the bottom to find the same form. As a subscriber, you won’t miss a post.
During the hiatus, I’ve appeared on numerous other podcasts throughout the industry, and much of the content I haven’t been able to put on the blog is available in audio form on these podcasts. You can catch up on all my mule deer content in these podcasts. If you like these podcasts, be sure and subscribe so that you can listen to more great content from each of these hosts. These podcasts are helping thousands of hunters perfect their crafts–so join the party!
