Dialed In Hunter

I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know Josh Kirchner over the past few years. He’s an excellent writer and is passionate about helping others learn from his experiences. Josh lives in the Phoenix, AZ area and is a backpack hunter so he offers a unique perspective on backpacking in his area of the world.

I’ve never met him, but I’ve watched his YouTube channel grow like crazy and it’s because he continually pumps out some great content that’s easy to understand. Even if you’re not into Thru Hiking, you can still learn a lot from Darwin.

Exo Mountain Gear

Exo Mountain Gear is a personal favorite of mine. Not only do they make great packs for hunting, but their podcast is second to none and their blog is packed full of great information about backcountry hunting and backpacking. What sets these guys apart is how intentional they are with their customers and their willingness to help you.

Kyle Kamp is a registered and licensed Dietitian who can help you make the most of your backcountry performance. He offers nutrition plans, meal planning, nutrition analysis, medical nutrition therapy, and consulting. Yeah…you can say it’s basically a one stop shop if you’re looking for some help with performance planning.
