One of our favorite thing to do at Nada Grande Outdoors is to help our Hunt It Forward participant keep their hunting experience moving forward. So for this weeks podcast Kyle and Rodney sat down with Shay and Ryan to help them learn a little about the rules and regs book and complete their very first draw hunt applications. It didn't hurt that we did this over a hot plate of speed goat tacos, cooked from Ryan's pronghorn he shot last year. Delicious!
This week Kyle and Rodney sat down with the Tristana Bickford, the Communications Director of the NMDGF. We had an awesome conversation about some of the things happening in and around the Department of Game and Fish here in New Mexico. Come check it out.
For this weeks podcast we touch on several subjects, but one important subject is in the title, how to disagree. It is pretty important. We cant always see eye to eye, but that doesn't mean we cant still have a good two sided conversation regardless of the topic. Come check it out.
Get it done right in the field. For this weeks episode of the Nada Grande Outdoors Podcast, Kyle and I sat down with Josh Jensen, of White Mountain Taxidermy. He had some great tips on field care for better meat processing and proper techniques for caping animals for a great mount. Come check it out.
One thing is for sure, the rules and regs book can get confusing for new hunters. Don't think that is true? Then go grab one from Arizona or Idaho and try to figure it out. It's not easy. But not to worry, Kyle and I have sat down with the 2020-2021 book for this week's podcast. We hope it will help.
"Misery fades and the memories remain" I hear Kyle say this a lot and I believe he is right. What we do now, for ourselves, for our friends, and for our loved ones creates those memories. Without them where is our purpose? Camping trips, hunting trips, and road trips are a great way to create these memories that will last through generations. What we do now with our friends and family, in particular the little ones, will live on in memory and campfire stories for a long time. What happens if we don't take the time to make these memories while we can? Nothing, and that sounds very boring. So, come listen to this weeks podcast about, what else, Memories.
Earlier this year we did a Barbary hunt giveaway for a tag we were given on some private property. During the hunt we sat down with the winner, Holt Tilton, our buddy, Gear Junky Jerry, and Russell Wilson to talk about the hunt. We also discussed the importance of private land and the role it plays for wildlife habitat.
Season two was a lot of fun. We are hoping season three will be that much better. Hunt it forward, guests, some fun ideas and some really fun trips. Last week we looked back on season two, this week we look ahead to season three. Come join us.
What a season it has been. Thanks to all our listeners who have followed us throughout the year. Thanks to all our guests on the podcast and a very special thanks to our Hunt It Forward Participants. It was a very fun season from bear attacks to hunters education. Cant wait for season three.
There are a lot of firsts in life, a first kiss, a first love, your first wildlife harvest. This is one of my greatest firsts of all times though, my daughters first deer. I had to choke back some tears as I walked back to the truck alone to get the pack to haul it out but the smiles that night, on the faces of Magdalena, Kyle and I will be remembered forever. What a great hunt, and great memories that will last forever. Come hear the story as told by Maggie, Kyle and Myself on this weeks Nada Grande Outdoors Podcast.
Want to know what to get that hunter in your family for Christmas? Want to know how to figure it out? Nada Grande Outdoors has some tips and trick to get it done right this year. Come check out this weeks podcast geared toward picking the right gear for Christmas.
Hunters education is an important part in any hunters life. This week Rodney had the pleasure of sitting down with long time Hunter Education Instructor, Matt Flotte. We even did the podcast live on facebook. As a bonus we had a really cool announcement. Come check it out.
Sometimes it doesn't matter how far you walk, how high you hike or how hard you look, animals are hard to find. Especially elk, when they are not bugling. Kyle, DeeDon and myself had a hell of a hard elk hunt this year, but as usual, it was awesome. I think.
All fun and no game for the Nada Grande Boys on this episode covering our Antelope hunt in 2019. What a great experience for Kyle DeeDon and I. Success can not be measured by the size of the headgear says every hunter eating tag soup. Come listen in as we recap the hunt.
Sometimes, a person or an organization thinks it is doing something for the right reasons, but hasn't actually stepped back and looked at what is really happening. Sometimes, they are looking so hard, they cant even see how wrong they really are. Sometimes, the mouth, or the pen, just spews words without any real thought on the matter. Sometime, someone is listening that is going to stand up and say "Words that Kyle wont let me post". On this weeks episode of the Nada Grande Outdoors Podcast, Kyle and I sat down with DeeDon Bates and Ty Jackson, to discuss an article released by the New Mexico Wildlife Federation that we think is full of intentionally misleading information. It is needed for us, as outdoorsman, to make sure that our position is not being misrepresented. In this case, the NMWF, does not represent our beliefs or what we believe should be the direction of New Mexico hunting policy. Come join us as we set the record straight.
Kyle and I sat down with the Back Country Hunters and Anglers Southwest Chapter Coordinator, Katie DeLorenzo. What we learned is we do not have to always agree on every position, but it is always good to have the conversations about topics that create controversy and division. There is a great divide between many outdoors groups from private land owners to public land hunters and everything in between. The important part is that we can sit down and have the conversations that are hard, about topics that we do not always agree upon. Nada Grande Outdoors does not agree with all the positions that the BHA takes here in New Mexico or across the country, and that is why this podcast was so much fun. Thank you Katie for joining us and thanks to our followers who take the time to like, share, rate and review our podcast.
Kyle and I had the pleasure of joining Erin and Starson Roy for a lovely home cooked meal and a podcast. Both experiences that we will never forget. For the meal, a lovely Elk Osso Bucco with bone marrow spread and for the podcast, we talked about blending the natural meat of a hunters harvest and fresh grown vegetables of a master gardeners garden. Subsistence living at its finest. Come listen in on the conversation.
Kyle and I were lucky enough to spend some time down at the Crossfit Zephyr Gym with @tammy_bowhunts. Aside from her almost killing the pair of us, she taught us a great deal about getting in shape and preparing for a hunt physically. After some good reps in the gym and a few shots, we sat down with Tammy to record this podcast. Come check it out.

On this weeks Nada Grande Outdoors Podcast, Kyle, DeeDon and I tried to talk about field care and processing of wild game. I know we laughed a lot and I'm sure there is a yo mamma joke or two. What I'm not sure about is how much field care we talked about. It sure was fun though. Come join us.
One cool thing about hunting, is anyone can do it. Sure, top of the line gear looks good, can keep you warmer and working out everyday will help you go farther and faster. But guess what, it's not a must. Time and money are not in abundance with everyone. do what you can when you can. Buy the gear you need first and then the gear you want. Most importantly remember this. It is time in the outdoors that will fill your trophy case, and the only trophy cases that carry any weight here at Nada Grande Outdoors, are the freezer and the memory bank.
Predator control plays a big role in our world of hunting. One of the best forms of predator control is the art of trapping. One way to get into trapping is to join the New Mexico Trappers Association. The NMTA has a rendezvous every year in Alto, NM. This year Rodney was lucky enough to sit down with the NMTA President, Chance Thedford as well as multiple time guest to our podcast and board member of the NMTA, Ty Jackson. We discussed several topics including the direction and future of the NMTA as well as what trapping means to our public lands and the wildlife that resides on it. Come join Nada Grande Outdoors and the New Mexico trappers Association on this weeks podcast.
